Inspiring Man Cave Lighting Ideas
Man caves have become increasingly popular spaces in today’s homes. Here, the man of the house can express his personality and interests in a manner that doesn’t have to flow with the rest of the home. These designated manspaces are frequently used to showcase sports memorabilia and other collections, watch sports and movies on widescreen TVs, and host game nights with the guys. However, just because it’s called a man cave, doesn’t mean you need to stay in the dark. Strategically-designed lightning can really make a man cave come alive.
Man caves are often housed in the basement, making them the darkest areas of the home. Lighting not only illuminates the room, but can be used to create a specific atmosphere. For example, you could stick with one color for a more conservative and serene look or use vibrant LED light colors for something a little bolder and brighter.
Highlighting Your Collections
Placing small recessed spotlights above your prized collections is a great way to highlight them and provide additional subtle lighting to your space.
From rustic to modern, and everything in between, hanging pendants add practical lighting and style to a man cave.
Cabinet lighting helps highlight a man cave owner’s favorite hobbies and collections, and brings visual interest to the space.
Rope LED Lighting
Rope LED lighting, either around the perimeter of a mancave, or used as uplighting at a bar or other section of a space, can add a lot of visual intrigue. Using a control, you can change the level of lighting to suit your mood. Check out these examples to see what we’re talking about:
