In this post, we discuss how to decorate our man cave cheaply so that it looks good and feels comfortable. We’ll show you how easy it is to do this with inexpensive or free items and even what you can do using items from home that might be otherwise abandoned. Remember – anything goes as long as it’s not too expensive!


  • You can use inexpensive or free items to decorate your man cave. For example, you could cut a hole in the wall and put shelves up so that they cover it. When someone walks into your man cave, all they will see is an awesome bookshelf full of stuff!
  • Make your own furniture out of scrap wood from around the house. If there are some pieces left over after building something else for schools like a desk or chair, use those scraps to build new things for the man cave! Remember – anything goes as long as it’s not too expensive!
  • You can also use things that you already have in the house to make a man cave. For example, if there are some old suitcases laying around unused, turn them into shelves for your books!
