An escape from the household and a place to bask in glorious solitude, a man cave is symbolic of freedom and fun. Often consisting of toys, electronics and sports gear, a man cave is a place for guys to relax and recharge. Whether you create a business-minded space or a recording studio hideaway, there are plenty of options for mastering the art of the man cave.

Looking to create a guy-centric space? Here are a few design ideas.

A classic and refined man cave is perfect for the consummate mountaineer or the dedicated ski buff. Furnishings, like a leather club chair and sofa, offer a spot for watching football games or escaping with electronics. A bit of recreation minded décor like cross-country skis or fishing poles is enough to give this space character and a bit of rugged edge.

A relaxing and stylish man kingdom likely includes beloved sports or music collectibles. For the artistic guy, a space filled with framed records and sheet music is inspiring and uplifting. Neutral leather armchairs, a large cabinet and a woodsy ottoman finish off this calm and cool manly lair.

A hip and trendy space makes the perfect spot for a gentleman’s hideout. A rolling coffee table, metal bookshelves and a leather accent chair make this loft-like space feel comfortable and timeless. A few architecture books, abstract wall art and an alligator skull add a dash of macho swagger.

A man cave doesn’t have to be decorated with bikini clad girl posters and beer souvenirs. While arcade games and alcohol might be the staples of a fun-focused man cave, a simple and luxury office works well as a classy guy retreat.  Perfect for those seeking a solitary hangout, a stately office is practical and functional. A large leather executive chair, sleek wooden desk and large framed trail map give this spot a sophisticated sensibility.

For those nights of poker or pigskin, this space is perfectly outfitted for a boys club meeting. A pedestal cocktail table takes center stage in this tough and testosterone fueled space.  Classic rich brown leather chairs and a large sofa offer a spot for cheering on the home team.
