Man Cave - But Make it Chic: Basement Reno

Okay the words man-cave and chic are rarely used in the same sentence… usually when I think of a man-cave I imagine tacky signs, beer cans and video games. So, when my client (and dear cousin) came to me about transforming her existing unfinished basement into a stylish, masculine “man-cave” for her boyfriend, I was thrilled!


The first thing that came to mind was – dark walls. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to incorporate some dark accent walls and millwork…. They wanted an entertainment unit to house a GIGANTIC 80” TV, a full bathroom with a shower, a laundry room and a bar…
