Your man cave should be much more than a nondescript spot where you hide out from the world. Your man cave can and should be a reflection of your personality and interests. One of the best ways to decorate your man cave is to hang art or display collections on the wall. Wall art doesn’t take up valuable floor space in your man cave, yet adds a considerable amount of aesthetic appeal.
While it may be tempting just to tack up posters, you can enhance the quality of your man cave by taking the time to frame wall art and collection displays. There are several more benefits of framing pictures for your man cave.
A Mature Look For a Mature Man
As a college student, you may have been content to use thumbtacks or adhesive to hang posters on the wall of your dorm room. But even if you still have some of those favorite posters from your collegiate years, times have changed. You want your man cave to look like a mature man’s den, not a college student’s dorm room. Framing pictures – and yes, even those old college posters – will help impart a mature look to your man cave.
Display Valuable Collections in Style
Your collections may or may not have material value, but they most certainly have sentimental value. With shadowbox framing, you can display your most treasured collections in a safe housing that allows them to be viewed without risking damage. Shadowboxes are like 3D framing; they have space to hold your collections behind protective glass.
Demonstrate Your Commitment to Quality
When you take the added care and time to framing your pictures and collections, you demonstrate your commitment to quality. Taking care of your man cave means that you respect yourself and your environment. Sure, your man cave is a place to relax, but it’s also a place where you can show how you expect to be treated in the world.
Easier Mobility With Framing
When you take the time to frame your art and collectibles in your man cave, you will get easier mobility when it comes time to move or redecorate. Moving a framed piece of art is a cinch; moving a poster without damaging it, or having to roll it up with a rubber band is a much riskier way of moving and storing a piece of art that you value.
Added Opportunities for Style
There are a variety of ways that you can frame your art pieces, whether it’s a poster or an original piece of fine art. You can opt for matting, where there is additional space all around the piece, or metal or wooden frames in a variety of sizes and finishes. If you desire, you can even highlight certain pieces of art with an overhead lighting fixture. The point is, when you frame pictures for your man cave, you open yourself up to a world of opportunities for self-expression and style in your favorite room in your home.
The décor for your man cave should be taken just as seriously as any other room in the house. Use framing to help express your style, quality of living, and personality.
