Updated: Feb 23
Garage man caves are the perfect space to spread out and relax. Here are the best design and decor ideas for your new retreat!
As we've all grown accustomed to being home more, homeowners can’t help but look for ways to expand their livable space. That’s where the garage man cave (or woman cave!) comes into play. Los Angeles homes don’t have basements, so the garage is often converted into a bonus space perfect for anything from working out to vegging out. To maximize design and functionality, here are the ultimate garage man cave ideas for 2022.
We like to think of this as the quintessential man cave seating. Perfect for sports, movies or gaming, this feature is made complete with a massive TV or projector, and a row(s) of plush recliner chairs (with cup holders!). Such man cave seating is ideal for quiet movie nights or a gathering to watch the latest blockbuster.
Man Cave Golf Simulators
Since getting to the links isn’t what it used to be, a man cave golf simulator is the next best thing. From inside your man cave garage conversion, you can easily practice your swing and pass the time with a virtual version of a golf course.
A fireplace can be costly to build from scratch. To create a cozy vibe, we suggest an electric fireplace insert, which is easy to install and effortless use -- and nixes the clean-up of a wood-burning fireplace!
A full bar goes hand in hand with the ultimate garage man cave, right? And no bar is complete without beer on tap. A built-in kegerator allows you to add your favorite draft(s) to your wet bar.
Need another boozy man cave bar idea? A wine dispenser allows you to serve vino at your leisure and cater to your craving. This feature gives oenophiles and guests variety, while keeping the wine from spoiling.
When you don’t want the functionality of a wine dispenser but love wine, a wine wall rack could be the ideal middle ground. Plus, it doubles as a visually interesting man cave décor idea.
Custom Neon Sign
Speaking of wall art, forget neon bar signs. Go custom. A custom neon sign can come in any words/phrases you want, along with any color and font you want. A feature like this is the icing on the cake when it comes to creating a garage man cave with top-notch interior design.
Be it for guests or a late night, a Murphy bed saves valuable space, contrary to a standard bed. Even better, a custom Murphy bed can be designed to match the rest of the space, and it can include shelves and storage.
Vintage-style arcade games are perfect man cave accessories. Not only are they entertaining, but they also give the space tons of personality. And, some are even collectors’ items your guest will ogle over!
Speaking of man cave games, it’s time to take poker night off the folding table and chairs. A luxury poker table can be used for the game as well as for everyday garage man cave seating for work or play.
