Once inside the man-cave, the cool angles and architectural features clearly identifies it as a former attic space. The room is accessorized with black and white images of career milestones and nostalgic art that references the homeowner's home town. There are two seating areas, a game table, a live edge counter with four barstools and of course a massive television. This room meets the needs of whatever type of guests our homeowner is hosting. There are four large club chairs for casual business meetings, a comfy sofa for lounging, or we can fill every seat for a big sporting event. Every element in this room has a purpose, but we still managed to inject good design principals into finishes, the space plan and overall mood to ensure a great result.
What was once a boring basement is now a cozy man cave, perfect for card games and casual entertaining. A contemporary black dining set and a series of framed prints by Michael Kungl create a relaxed atmosphere.
This basement was a junk room for the longest time until the client had the idea to turn it into a “man cave” for her husband. The wood paneling received a slight whitewash finish to lighten up the space. In the back of the space, a wet bar was added for entertaining.
Complete with a wet bar, this basement junk room turned man cave is just the place for entertaining. The designers kept the original 1920s Spanish tile floors and gave the wood paneling a light whitewash to brighten up the room. The subtle pattern and texture from the sofa mesh with the pattern on the ottoman complement the original flooring without overwhelming it.
