Man caves are a place where guys can kick back, relax and have all of those things that won’t go with the decor of the rest of the house. So, what are some ways retailers can assist in making man caves havens for those who use them? By offering products, tips and tricks to store, display and control the chaos of precious memorabilia.
Thinking Vertically: Shelves can lend to the design of the room, and floating shelves (like those by Welland) hide hardware that could distract from the overall aesthetic, while pipe and distressed boards is an easy DIY project that can create a designer industrial look. Vertical storage can also include media centers, with televisions and surround-sound speakers mounted to the wall. Shadowboxes and frames can make artwork out of jerseys, album covers and other collectibles.
Dual-Purpose Furniture: Clear-top display tables can show off smaller items while still being functional, chairs and couches can contain storage compartments within armrests or seats, and of course, ottomans (like this one by Sauder) can provide space for items that need ready access.
