One of the main benefits of a Man Cave is that the décor is entirely up to you. There is no need to be cautious of clashing colour schemes or over cluttering; if it can be somehow attached to a wall, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t bust out the nail gun.
Of course, there are some exceptions to the rule; you aren’t decorating a college dorm room so it’s probably best to roll up your Che Guevara or Abbey Road poster. There is even a company offering a range of Man Cave paint, boasting colours such as ‘5 O’Clock Shadow’ Grey and ‘Sucker Punch’ Plum if your Man Cave could do with a fresh lick.
If inspiration is still escaping you, we’ve scoured the internet for some of the best man cave wall decor ideas.
