Are you a struggling single in Singapore who’s not very ready to mingle yet? Are you looking to make a home that can become your Man Cave – your personal sanctuary, your hideout from the world? Well today, we’ve got the perfect inspiration for you! Let’s take a look at these 5 tips that you can use to convert your home into a Man Cave!
1. Using a masculine color scheme
The first thing you need to do is select a color scheme that strays away from the typical frills and blues. The masculine color palate usually consists of bold, dark and earthy colors like browns, blacks, navy blues and burgundies. You can create a variation of these colors to implement in your new home to get a truly male-vibe going in your Man Cave.
2. Cushy, comfortable furniture
The choice of furniture you opt for in your Man Cave is more of a personal venture. You can go for lazy boy chairs, but if you find those to be too expensive, you can go for deep dive couches where you can just sit back and relax with a book or some digital entertainment. The color and fabric of these furnishings matter a lot, so once again, you have to create some variation of the above color scheme.
3. Digital accessorizing
You can upgrade the whole aesthetic by emphasizing your digital appliances. You can make the LCD the front-and-center of your interior design. Similar is the case with all other gadgets like the home surround sound system, the Mac desktop or anything that you value and want to display in your homes.
4. Accent lighting
Since the Man Cave is mostly designed in bold colors and wooden, earthy textures, accent lighting is the best possible way for you to complement it. You can opt for tack lights for your living area, suspended lamps for your nightstands and table lamps for your study desks. If you want a touch of ambient lighting then you can go for a combination of uplighters and downlighters throughout the space.
5. Simple shapes
As far as embellishment goes, you can introduce some geometry and accessorization in your Man Cave with the help of simple shapes. These honey-comb shaped shelves are a great example of how you can add a decorative quality without going for anything frou-frou.
