Ten Must-Have Design Elements for your Man Cave

Ten Must-Have Design Elements for your Man Cave

Been thinking about turning that extra space in your home into a man cave? We can help you brainstorm ideas to match your personality. We break down the ten must-have design elements and details to consider here:

  • Location – Have a bonus room, attic, basement, or garage you’re not using to its full potential? Consider turning it into the man cave you’ve always wanted. Scouting the location is your first step.
  • Theme – Next, you will need to select a theme. What are your hobbies and how will you spend your time in your man cave? This will determine the design and overall look of the room. For example, if you’re a wine enthusiast, consider incorporating a wine cellar and perhaps a more sophisticated design. Some common themes include the “sports bar,” “rustic/hunting cabin,” and “music fan” man caves. Furniture, paint selections, and fixtures will all be determined by your room’s purpose.
  • Functional Layout – Let us help you plan this in advance. First, choose the room’s main focal point. It’s typically one wall where you’ll place your TV(s), music stage, or anything that requires construction elements for example. Once this is determined, it’s easier to map out the rest of the room.
  • Entertainment Center/Wall Built-Ins – Time spent in your man cave will likely center around watching sports. So, it makes sense to have at least one wall for an entertainment center or wall built-ins for your large flat-screen TV or multiple TVs. Easily watch all your favorite teams at the same time!
  • Bar/Beverage Station – When you think of “man cave” one of the top things that comes to mind is the bar setup. Elaborate or simple, we can help you plan the placement of your bar’s counter space, cabinets, refrigerator, cigar humidor, and more. Invest in a roll-around cooler for those extra lazy days.
  • Bathroom – There’s never a reason to leave if you incorporate a half bathroom in your design. We suggest keeping it simple but don’t skimp on this feature.
  • Proper Lighting – For the right ambiance, accentuate the room with soft lighting and dimmer switches so that lighting can be controlled when watching movies or sporting events. The right lighting can usually be achieved with overhead cans. Add a masculine light fixture above your billiard or cards table for a fun touch. Consider adding backlighting to highlight your prized possessions and your bar’s drink selections. If you have the option, strategically add windows so the natural light’s glare doesn’t take away from the big game.
  • Comfortable Seating Select comfortable couches, a few recliners, and don’t forget bar stools for the bar. Think about the number of family and friends you normally entertain to determine if you have enough seats for everyone.
  • Wall Decorations These should match the theme of your man cave. Sports memorabilia, posters, artwork – Whatever your hobby, present us your items before the work begins and we’ll create some solid ideas to display them properly.
  • Games – You want an interactive element to keep your guests entertained. Popular choices for a man cave include a billiards table, poker table, and dartboards.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
