Depending on the size of your man cave, you can add as many or as few items as you like to make it personalized to your preferences and tastes. Whether your tastes include a rugged look, a formal look, or a more sporty or casual look, you can easily find the items you need to make it look extraordinary in the end. If you’d like to add a bar to your man cave, this is a lot easier to do than you might think. If you do your due diligence online, you can get a lot of ideas that will make the room look extraordinary when you’re done. Below are just a few of those ideas.
Add Some Shelves for a Little Ambiance
Shelves not only are a great way to keep your bar glasses and bottles of alcohol in a convenient place but you can also make the shelves as fancy or as casual as you want them to be. Thick, wooden shelves make your man cave look especially rugged and masculine and you can install as many of them as you like so that you can have a lot of room to store these items.
Man up with the Right Pictures
The walls of your man cave near your bar area can include framed sports jerseys and photographs of your favorite sports figures. This gives it a sporty, casual look that not only complements the bar area but also makes it more accommodating and comfortable for everyone. If you like, you can include photographs of alcoholic beverages and champagne glasses instead of something sports-related because anything along these lines gives your bar area a great look.
Saving Space the Attractive Way
Installing built-in bookshelves is a great way to give your man cave a wonderful look and to hold quite a few bottles of liquor as well as glasses, shot glasses, and many other items needed to enjoy cocktails now and then. You can install one shelf or a dozen of them, depending on the space you have available, and you can find them in many different designs, styles, and colors.
Don’t Forget the TV Set
A man cave is practically useless without a television set and if you add a big-screen TV set to your bar area, friends can enjoy a good sporting event or game show while they enjoy a few beers. Even if you’re enjoying time with a few friends and you can’t find anything to watch on TV, you can switch over to a music channel and enjoy some lively music while you drink and chat with one another.
Create a Bar Area without Spending a Lot of Money
If you don’t have a separate bar area but you’re on a budget, you can easily add one without spending a fortune. Use some empty crates (with or without paint on them) to construct a bar that looks rugged yet attractive. Then add a sink and some casual-looking bar stools in a bright or rugged color and voila — you have a great-looking bar area that is both practical and attractive. Whether you enter your man cave once a week or once a day, you deserve a separate bar area and this is one way to get it without breaking the bank.
Try a Unique Type of Bar
If you want something a little unique and different, try adding a bar using an old truck tailgate. You can paint the tailgate, use it as a shelf, and then set the bottles of liquor on a built-in shelf on the wall above it. You can paint the shelf and the wall area the same color as the tailgate or colors that match it. For some extra character, add a few old stop signs to the wall surrounding the bar area or anything else that expresses your interests so that you get the perfect bar area every time.
Make the Area Your Own
Adding items to your bar area to make it your own is quite simple so if you enjoy hunting or fishing, add a deer or large fish you got from the taxidermist to your walls or add a bar made of stone for a fancier look. You can add books, mementoes, photographs, or anything else that shows off your interests to others, making the area truly your own.
