Just a few years ago, man caves were dark dungeons, a no woman’s land, of television and a pony keg. There may have been some team paraphernalia dotting the walls but who could see it with the poor lighting? Today’s man caves are modern and have more design elements in them than some people’s living rooms offer. The lighting is bright, the spaces are utilized in a smart manner and the area is more contemporary than ever before.
When it comes to residential interior design, trends come and go and those who want a home that is stylish and following the latest trends need to consider the above.
