Huge man cave with sectional sofa, bar, recessed lighting and hard wood floor

Welcome to our epic man cave gallery.

We collected and put together a massive collection of 63 man caves (basements, garages, etc.).

Man cave is a tongue-in-cheek way of referring to a finished basement, garage space converted into a lounge or game room… or any space used predominantly by the men of the house.

Basements and garages are often under-used spaces left for storage.

The growing popularity of the man cave idea is a great way to use what’s often a large space.

Yes, finishing a basement can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be.  You can also plan to do it in stages, starting with a basic design and improving on aesthetics and features over time.

The finished basement (and man caves) have humble beginnings consisting of a TV room or family room and maybe a game element such as a pool table.

Now they’re elaborate, expensive and loaded with all kinds of features and designed in various themes.

However, as you’ll see below and you’ve no doubt seen elsewhere, the finished basement has evolved to include many styles and functions and include a variety of man cave furniture.

From games rooms to themed-rooms to incredible media rooms, the basement in many homes is a space that adds fun and function as well as unique style to many homes.

Below is a series of pictures of man cave designs to give your ideas for your ultimate finished basement.
