Painting a Man Cave - Part 1
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Friday, January 15, 2010
The “man cave” or the “media room” is becoming a popular addition to many homes. At Sundeleaf Painting we can help you transform your new space.
Media rooms and man caves are often in basements or sometimes part of a garage renovation. It will be important to begin the renovation or makeover process by checking for moisture or mold and resolving these issues before painting. Ask us to evaluate the condition of your walls during your estimate.
Man caves are typically more private spaces away from the entry and formal living areas. Be bold with your color choices. What are your favorite teams? Would you like Trailblazers red & black, Oregon green & yellow or Oregon State orange & black? The sports lover will have no trouble choosing a winning color combination for their room. Of course not everybody may agree that Seahawk navy blue, white & neon green are the best colors for their media room. You may choose neutral but rugged colors like forest green or brown (both of which are associated with the environment and nature) or a dark red shade (which evokes intensity and power). Whatever the color choice, Sundeleaf Painting will work with you to carefully coordinate your colors.
The Sundeleaf Painting team will then properly prepare the walls before beginning the priming and painting process. Once the wall color of choice has been applied, consider creating a focal point. A flat screen television mounted on the wall could be bordered by an accent color, or sports memorabilia could be encased in a cabinet painted in a striking complementary color or carefully stained in a dark wood stain.
Once the painting is complete, overstuffed chairs, pillows, game tables, sports jerseys and photos can provide the finishing touches, guaranteeing that the owner of this “man cave” will feel quite at home while cheering on the team! Add black-out drapes to get the best color from your TV.
