Father's Day Man Cave Infographic


News flash. Your father really doesn’t need (or want) another blue button-down shirt, or a tie, or more boxers for Father’s Day. And besides, is that any kind of way to honor the guy who’s always been there to fix things you’ve broken, solve your problems, and give you his old car when he trades up? We don’t think so.

What’s the one thing almost every father could use more of? A space somewhere around the house he can call his own, where he can keep his stuff, and do what he likes.

So, if you’re trying to show dear ol’ dad some love this Father’s Day, get him something for his man cave. And, if he doesn’t have one yet, find out what kind of cave he’d like to build and help him get started.


If you need a few more suggestions, check out The Home Depot Gift Center. You’ll find a ton of great gift recommendations for dads and man caves of all types. From grills and power tools to the latest HDTVs and and more, you’ll find a special gift that dad’s going to love you for (even more).

Man Caves is an exploration of cool spaces guys have created for themselves: everything from living rooms and bedrooms, offices and workshops, and media and game rooms, to garages, outdoor grilling areas, gardens and more. We dispense tips on décor, equipment, storage and organization, as well as share ideas, know-how and product info to help you hook up your own manspace.

We looked the historic spaces a few famous men created for themselves in an earlier Man Caves column, and saw how each reflected something of the character and passions of the men who hung out in them. And like great men in the past, men today want control over the look and design of their space, fuelling the great popularity of manly retreats in home.

The challenge for many guys is how to create a unique space with a masculine vibe that goes beyond your average converted basement. Traditional man caves with the flatscreen, kegerator, autographed sports jersey and pool table are no problem. But how do you put together a sleek, modern look for a cigar/wine room, or a bar/poolroom/study, or a living room?

Take inspiration from Mad Men, we say.
