At this point, you have been searching and brainstorming on what theme best fits you and what you want to be surrounded by. The most common theme nowadays revolves on the ever growing sport industry. Sports man cave ideas are endless, as most people can find autographed items anywhere they look for a given price- but what else is there? Outside of your wall space for these autographs, you have a large area that needs a little TLC too! Whether you are choosing sports as a whole or narrowing it down to a particular sport, we have some recommendations that may help further boost your sports themed man cave. Here is an example of what is to come from youtube user super1matt:
America’s most famous sport that is growing as you are reading! for four months straight, weekends consist of professional and college football games, tailgate, and watch parties ranging from one game to an all day event. The common items for these events relate to food and drinks, but what else is there?
Before we dive into that, let us look at sports man cave ideas that relate to serving food and drinks related to football. The most unique item I have seen through searching the internet are miniature football helmets with two slots, one for salsa dip and one for any other dip. It is a unique twist on hosting finger food that relates to your overall theme! Additionally, there are a plethora of variations of different mugs, beer glasses, or coasters that relate to football- it is a mater of finding the one that fits your desire and budget.
You have you serving decor, now it is time to get the permanent sports related decor present. Lamps that look like field goals, billiard tables with a football field cover, or even bar stools with your favorite football team design are perfect ideas to bring your sports themed man cave to the next level! There are simple version of decorating man cave tables as well, like this 49’s one that can be changed to any team.
Chances are you have seen a baseball game and the friendly banter that comes with it. The benefit of a baseball them is that it is filled with so many sports related decor that pertains to ever facet of a man cave. We won’t touch the drink-related options as those are the same for most themes, but let’s delve into what other things we can do.
From the ground up, you can decorate your man cave with unique items that could potentially make your man cave feel like a baseball field itself. From a rug in the shape of the infield to walls covered in decorations that mirror that of an outfield wall, the possibilities are endless once you know where to start. End tables made from bases, bar stools and chairs made from bats, or even lamp stands made from baseballs can lift your man cave ranking from 0 to infinity if done correctly. If you are feeling like buying a chair with your team’s logo, you can do that too, giving it a more classy feel. This yankee chair is perfect for a man cave, except if you are a Red Sox fan like me!
If you are feeling the baseball them in totality, you can even get seats that have been retired from the baseball stadiums. Imagine you and the boys sitting back watching a World Series game or College Championship Series while sitting in the seats from your favorite team’s stadium! The only thing you will be missing is someone walking about yelling PEANUTS, GET YOUR PEANUTS!
The world’s most popular sport. As I mentioned before, the drinking options are universal so we won’t go much into that. Except…the world cup! Having a drink or food out of the world cup would be an instant hit for any man cave theme revolving around soccer. Having the ball on top of a miniature world cup replica mug/snack holder would enable you and who you are hosting to have a taste for being at the actual game!
What’s that? You want more? Done. Let us watch that game with a soccer goal back splash over your bar, creating the lighting and atmosphere over the main location you will go to get snacks and drinks in your man cave. If that isn’t enough, you can create a lamp with the appearance of a soccer ball half as the lampshade! I won’t spit out too many ideas, as the man cave is your own, but remember to pick out the unique features that you want and go from there.
Lord Stanley’s Cup. Ice Skates. Hockey Sticks. Goals, pucks, and helmets with visors- all famous items that pertain the biggest blue collar sport around.
Drinks from a Stanley cup replica? Done. Chips from an upside down helmet replica? Check. The possibilities for hockey themed man caves is so exciting and endless, but that is coming from a huge hockey fan. A lamp with the stand itself made from hockey sticks or a hockey skate would be a huge upgrade to any hockey theme, as would a bar with a hockey net as the lighting cover. A coffee table or end table made from sticks is a huge plus as well.
Don’t forget that you could always do something easier as well. Hockey player cards can be used to create a collage on any table or bar counter top that would be unique and effective as well. Hockey puck coaster are a must as well, or even lamps created from pucks stacked in whatever pattern you can find! Now that we covered a gritty sport, let’s move on to some finesse.
From the fastest on ice game to the fastest change of pace game on a court, basketball related man caves provide a lot of opportunities to mold your room into that special something. Basketballs, like soccer balls, can be fitted into lamp shades and chip or dip holders, but there are many other options too (BAR STOOLS being the most appealing).
Converting a rim into a lampshade with the netting hardened to create a shade is a unique item that would make any sports related man cave stand out. Flooring is another option that stands out, as teams like the Boston Celtics and their unique parquet floor would be the centerpiece for any basketball man cave.
Don’t forget about March Madness too, as that is a huge tournament with a variety of ideas for basketball related decor.
Tennis, Golf, and More!
There are so many sports and so many ideas that can be crossed between them, or ones that make your man cave theme sport specific. Don’t forget to research what ideas are out there and what products/designs may be available to fit your man cave theme.
