Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means Dad has probably been dropping some serious hints about finally getting that man cave. But if visions of bean bag chairs are making you think about a nice tie instead, we’re here with solutions that make everyone happy.
Because as it turns out, man caves can actually be stylish while offering Dad all the perks of his very own space. The trick is giving him everything he wants while steering clear of the cliché over-stuffed furniture and sport posters taped to the wall. Instead, try some of our recommendations for the minimalist man cave.
