How to create the ultimate Man Cave for Father’s DayAuthor: Home Flair Decor • Date: 15 June 2016
Father’s Day is the perfect excuse for the man of the house to drop all domestic duties, gather his belongings and escape to the one place he knows he will not be disturbed. You guessed it, the man cave.
Let’s face it, the deal breaker elements of the house are often geared towards women, like the immaculate kitchen, walk in closets and spa worthy bathrooms, but men need their playroom too! Whether it’s a basement turned into a pub for poker nights, a spare room kitted out with a plasma screen for fun sized football action or even a basketball court in the garden, there are unlimited possibilities when it comes to giving your dad a Father’s Day to remember. Here are some key interiors to consider when designing his surprise man cave:
Focus on a theme
First you must determine a theme based on his interests and hobbies. Is your dad absolutely sports mad (probably)? Is he a car enthusiast? An avid memorabilia collector? Or perhaps he loves nothing more than to lounge in front of the telly, undisturbed? Once you have established a theme, you can begin work on the decoration. Identify one must-have element the room needs that your dad will simply love, like a pool table, beer fridge or flat screen and then build the rest of the room around that.
At Home Flair Decor we know a thing or two about interiors and decorating to suit your style. When looking to kit out a room of the house for the ‘man of the house’, there are some key man cave elements your father will enjoy. For example, what dad doesn’t love a comfortable couch and superheros ? We have a wide selection of cushions to make him feel right at home and to top it off, some comic book inspired wall murals to give his man cave that wow factor!
2) Football fanatic
We love you football, we do. We love you football, we do. Oh, football we love you! If your dad’s idea of a wild Saturday night is Match of the Day, beers and a room built around his passion for the sport, then our football inspired interiors will do the job. We have a selection of fabulous football borders, murals and wallpapers available to order in time for Euro 2016.
3) Designer dad
For the classy dad, give him a space that will make him feel like the king of his castle. Deck it out with a mini bar, cocktail glasses and some of the finest decor from exclusive design houses around the world! Whether it’s Versace from Italy you’re after, Lars Contzen of Germany or Julian MacDonald from Wales, we’ve got a vast collection of styles suitable for your fashion conscious father.
4) Car obsessed
Step your decorating up a gear this Father’s Day and surprise your dad with a high quality garage space where he can work on his next big project. The most important aspect of this particular type of man cave is maximising the space for dad to work on his cars. You can also hang up pictures of classic car projects reminding him of the days spent transforming his latest down-at-heel project into a gleaming head turner. Shop our fabulous photo frames and find the perfect size, colour and style to document those memories.
Struggling to please your fussy father? We have a huge selection of wallpapers, cushions, lighting, wall art, borders and homewares to add the finishing touches to his man cave in time for the big day.
