If you think of a dark and dingy space when you hear the term “man cave,” think again.

Just be sure to create a room that lets you show your passion. Think about all the themes you can choose from to express your personality. If you enjoying hunting or have a hobby or sport you’re devoted to, display it. If you like being a spectator and a collector, hang a large monitor to watch the games, or display framed memorabilia on the walls. Remember to add accent lighting to give your collection a dramatic look. [Read more…]
