The Man's Cave

Who will deny that typically, the wife is the boss in most households, especially when it comes to the decor and interior design of the spaces throughout the home.  Well, where women are typically the boss in the majority of the home, men are now getting their own space.  A space where sports take the center stage of decor, and the TV's are large.  These spaces are called the Man Caves.  Most men want these spaces in their home, and space permitting, more and more of these spaces are popping up, including basement renovations.  So where would you go for inspiration on these spaces, surely not a dive bar?  No, these spaces are rich with design and features, well beyond that of a bar in a scuzzy neighborhood.  Here is just a collection of some of these great rooms.
