Building a Man Cave? Here's How to Give it a Modern Industrial Vibe

Over the past year, people have taken time to indulge new hobbies and fixations at home. For many, though, home itself was the fixation. Repairing, redecorating, and rearranging our living spaces have been helpful pastimes recently, because we actually get to enjoy our homes now.

If you’re looking to get in on some long-overdue home improvements—that man cave you've been meaning to build, perhaps—know that there’s no better time to get started than now. Consider giving your space an industrial-style overhaul, for example.

To design an industrial-themed pad, you will want to lean towards darker tones for floors or walls, and use vintage decor, wood, and leather pieces, as well as cozy lighting. If you feel a little lost at first, don’t worry—Wilcon Depot can walk you through. Here are five different areas in your home that qualify as "man caves," and how you can make each an industrial-style space.

Gaming Rig

For game enthusiasts, having a cool and calming room with great lighting is essential. Create your customized gaming room by adding a wooden table from Heim paired with a comfy gaming chair. You can also place a table lamp from Alphalux beside your gaming equipment for that industrial style and better lighting. To spruce it up, hang some paintings on the wall, as well as string lights on different corners, for more dimension.

Theater Room

As for the film buffs, a proper home theater setup is mandatory. Naturally, a kickass home theater needs a good soffa, like those by Natuzzi Editions. This particular sofa is elegant but simple, with a nice smooth finish. To complete the setup, add a metal center table from Heim as well as carpet tiles from

Home Bar

Perhaps the quarantine project you’ve been waiting for is a home bar. Incorporate the industrial theme by installing chic metal pendant lights from Alphalux, and wood and metal bar stools from Heim. You can also add vintage wall decor from Heim to complete your bar area.

Living Room

In the living room, achieving an industrial look is all about picking out small, subtle decor. A Natuzzi Editions industrial-themed sofa and a Heim geometric-designed center table can serve as the focal point of the room. To accentuate the whole space, add industrial-style centerpieces from Heim and a stylish chandelier from Alphalux.

Home Gym

Style your personal gym by installing rubber tiles from These are made of highly durable materials that can withstand heavy impact. (Plus, they're very easy to install and maintain.) To keep your gym essentials neat, grab high-quality metal shelves from Home Basics. You can also install wall tiles from Eco Ceramica to achieve a rustic industrial look.
