There is nothing wrong with a man Cave even if women often say differently. The problem comes when the man cave screams frat-boy, then it’s “oh no!” But if you tweak it a bit with some adult elegance, a man cave can be perfectly “yours” and still say, “I’m a full-fledged male adult,” rather than decreeing “I’m the eternal bachelor boy.”
Here are a few tips:
Vinyls are a do. Posters are a don’t. Vinyls are back in y’all. So if you have a Pink Floyd record Collection or Dylan on Vinyl, that’s great. But whatever you do, don’t put up a Pink Floyd poster or an Ozzy Osbourne wall rug. Um no, please don’t.
Alcohol is OK. Maybe you want a bar or some of your fave alcohol and refrigerator. That’s fabulous. Old whisky, Aged Scotch, even expensive Belgian beer – good call. DON’T display a beer pyramid. Um, no.
A really expensive cigar collection or hey, go all out and display the Bey-Berk International Flask and Cigar Set. This says man-cave but I’m elegant and I know about the finer things. DON’T put up a bong collection. Yeah, um no.
But listen all that being said, you can still have fun. A ping pong table, an X-Box, a comic book collection or the complete set of the Godfather movies or whatever you love. Those are all fine. Just remember you finished college for a reason. So when in doubt stay away for nudie posters and pens that go from the Statue of Liberty to naked ladies. OK maybe one – but only as a novelty!
