Classic Masculine Basements

Are you considering remodeling your basement? Are you thinking of adding a mancave but prefer classic, understated sophistication to the standard (but fun) mancave? This post is for you! I have gathered inspiration for classically masculine spaces!

A classically masculine basement should be dark yet comfortable with rich woods and leather furniture. It should smell of cedar woods or sandalwood and remind visitors of a golf clubhouse, cozy pub or their grandfathers study.

Leather furniture and dark walls create a masculine vibe perfect for sipping fine scotch!

Creating this look and more importantly feeling is achievable! Start with a darker wall color and add rich wood to the walls or floor. This will ensure the space doesn’t feel like a basement!

Then focus on the main features such as seating or perhaps a desk. Alternatively, the centerpiece could be an antique bar!

A pub inspired bar such as this one from Echelon Homes is perfect!

From there ensure the accessories such as lighting, decor and other furnishings match your intent for the space!
