MAN CAVE DECOR IDEAS: We get it. You can’t let your man cave look too girly, even if a couple of the guys who frequent it happen to be girls.

The average man cave has to have that look of masculinity that indicates that this is guy territory and that you are entering at your own risk – and this means decor.

Here are our picks for the top five-man cave decor ideas to get that message across.

Any idea why guys tend to flock to the local sports bar? That’s because it’s sort of like the Mother Ship that keeps calling them home.

You can create the same atmosphere by taking a few tips from that sports bar and converting them to fit your man cave.

Flat-screen TVs, a minibar, shelving that displays all kinds of sports collectibles (including box sets of baseball, basketball, and hockey cards), and cold beer.

Sounds like a winning combination to us.

Nothing makes your man cave seem more like a time capsule than a rock ’n’ roll treatment.

This includes everything from a jukebox filled with classic rock 45s to music posters, concert t-shirts, even some music memorabilia like an electric guitar or drum set autographed by some major band from that bygone era.

If you and the guys have a band, a stage for impromptu performances would also be a nice touch.
