Man Caves are are all the rage and although they can be massive projects that cost a lot of money, they don't always have to. I transformed a basement into a chic Man Cave in one day with a vintage and modern mix that still catered to Dad’s love of hockey. You can create your own by following these 5 easy tips. Here's the clip of the makeover from start to finish and the tips!

Comfortable Seating Man Caves are not the place for tailored silk chairs.Think comfy couches and big, fluffy pillows. Deep, woodsy colors and soft fabrics and rugs. Not n uptight look!

Deck With Tech
Man caves need big screen TV’s, video games and music. This is a place for sports watching, movies and overall fun. I like the Sonos and new Sony PS4 Video gaming system for affordability and cool graphics. Perfect for the Man Cave!

Cold Beverages
Every man cave needs cold drinks. The Maytag Dual Temperature Zone Beverage Center is a compact refrigerator that packs the chill of a full-size fridge.That means, whenever the man cave is being used everyone can enjoy a chilled drink of choice. Sleek looking and if you ever wanted to, you could move it to your kitchen.

Cool Accessories
Nothing is cooler than real vintage items.Vintage suitcases and accessories mixed with inexpensive lamps create a chic, stylish vibe without feeling too girly. They are also very affordable.

One WOW Piece
A Man Cave should have one wow factor piece that highlights a passion..whether that passion is music, poker or sports. Ours was air hockey, so I got this gorgeous Brunswick V Force Air Hockey Table since they invented the air hockey table. It has an electronic scoring and scratch free surface that can stand up to the roughest guy play.

Man Caves that are created for husbands and fathers should have an element that caters to the whole family because the reality is most of the family will be enjoying that space, too!
