Ideas for Painting Your Man Cave
The man cave might just be the last respite, the last place where you can completely relax. When you’re decorating your man cave, think about creative painting options to make your room your own.
The Location of Your Man Cave Will Help You Choose Paint Colors
Deciding what to paint your man cave in part depends upon where the room is located in your home. If your man cave is in your basement, painted stripes can help delineate spaces. Ask to have stripes painted or have a painted chair rail added to break up a long room into cozy small spaces. If the man cave is in the garage, it’s especially important to mark off one area that’s dedicated to games, reading or media. Choose 2-3 shades of one color, like dove gray to charcoal, or a neutral, muted orange punctuated by a pop of tangerine color. An awkward space, like a converted attic or a bonus room in a Cape Cod home quickly becomes a man cave when painted in shades of Wedgewood blue accented with navy.
Painting a Man Cave in Bold Colors
Have your man cave painted in bold colors to refresh and rejuvenate visitors. Shades of red, blue or green or boldly painted modern stencils will give your man cave a new energy. Painted walls in different colors can coordinate without clashing- deep chocolate brown is set off by turquoise blue or orange; charcoal gray will pop with azure blue trim. A stylized use of color for every wall can work well, when the colors complement each other.
Man Cave Painting Ideas Include Deep Notes of Color
Deep notes of color work well in a man cave. Having your walls painted hunter green, navy blue or burgundy brings a hint of elegance and a lot of warmth into the room. The dark, bold colors will provide a restful place for reading and relaxing after work or on the weekends.
