Five Essential Items for Your Man Cave Design [PHOTOS]
There’s nothing quite like throwinga party in your custom-designed, world-class man cave.
Wait – what’s that? You don’t have the world’s best man cave? No problem. You don’t need a walk-in humidor, a hand-crafted wine cellar or custom-built leather recliners to have a great “man cave” to make your friends drool.
What you do need are a few helpful tips from Peter Salerno, the creator of “Man Cave Classics”, one of the world’s foremost interior designers and recipient of an unprecedented 23 NKBA design awards over the last decade.
With these five helpful tips, you can transform your den or media room into a man cave so amazing, your friends will drool with envy. (Then, your only problem will be getting them to leave after the party’s over!)
5 Tips to Create an Awesome Man Cave
1. Make your bar unique, eye-popping and memorable.
This tip is a Peter Salerno specialty. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this 1959 Corvette that Peter transformed into the most amazing bar in the world:
All it takes is a little creativity and a personal touch. Take something you’re passionate about and use it as the basis for your very own custom-built bar. (And if you need some assistance, Peter Salerno and his team will be glad to help you design the bar of your dreams!)
2. Make sure you have plenty of comfortable seating.
Your man cave should be a place to hang out, crash and relax. Make sure there’s plenty of space and seating for you and your buddies to lounge around without feeling cramped or uncomfortable.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on recliners and sectional sofas – just make sure that there’s at least one more seat than the amount of guests you expect (just in case someone brings a friend). Oh, and as far as your own seat? Make sure you designate a chair of your own – every master of a man cave should have his favorite place to sit!
3. Make the decor personal to you.
When you think of a prototypical man cave, a few things instantly come to mind: animal heads mounted on the wall, tacky bearskin rugs, and so on. Don’t go the conventional, “over done” route – make your man cave your very own!
A great idea is to personalize the decor in your man cave with items, art and designs that showcase who you are and what your life is all about. For example, Peter Salerno designed one of his man caves with a professional graffiti artist, who “tagged” the walls with an awesome city skyline as well as the initials and names of his family, friends and loved ones.
4. Offer more entertainment options than just TV.
At some point, guests to your man cave will want to do something other than sit around and watch TV. At this point, you need other forms of entertainment to keep them occupied. Peter Salerno and his team suggest a form of physical activity: pool table, air hockey, old-school pinball machine, etc.
Keeping your guests spread out around your man cave also ensures that everyone mingles, no one feels cramped, and there’s plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable, relaxed and never bored.
5. Add the element of surprise.
What if a bookcase in your man cave hides a hidden door to your garage, a cigar room/humidor or the rest of your house? How about having your TV hidden behind a large mirror? Or perhaps you could have secret shelving units for your liquor, games, or other man cave “treasures”?
These are just a few ideas to take your man cave to the next level. The element of surprise will not only entertain your guests, but take the “Wow” factor of your man cave through the roof. Imagine giving your friends the man cave experience of their lives, and then springing one last secret on them – how great is that?
These are just a few ideas to make your man cave the envy of your friends (and neighborhood rivals?). If you want even more great ideas regarding custom man cave, wine cellar, cigar room or game room construction and design, then you’re definitely going to want to contact Peter Salerno and create your very own Man Cave Classic!

Scooby Doo and Slimer Visit The Peter Salerno Inc. Showroom
When Peter Salerno walked into his award-winning design showroom in Wyckoff, NJ, this morning, he thought something seemed… funny.
Maybe it was the flickering lights. Maybe it was the chill in the air. Or maybe it was the weird creaking noise coming from the 1959 Corvette that becomes the world’s most amazing bar.
Anthony, Tracy and Gabrielle Salerno soon entered the office, and the four of them tip-toed into the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom quietly. The La Cornue showpiece kitchen seemed normal. All the fixtures were in working order. Nobody could seem to figure out what was wrong.
Finally, Tracy turned to the group and said, “Hey guys… maybe it’s the humongous green ghost that’s hanging out in the Cadillac.”
It seems like Slimer, the famous ghost from “Ghostbusters”, decided to take up residence in the hood of the 1959 Corvette wet bar. (Whether he liked the car or wanted a martini, we’ll never know.)
Either way, Peter Salerno and his family quickly called Scooby Doo and the gang to solve the case. Sadly, all Scooby and Shaggy wanted to do was hang out in one of the showroom kitchens and order a pizza.
On second thought, maybe Peter should have called the Ghostbusters instead.
Happy Halloween from Peter Salerno Inc.! Be safe, be spooky, and have fun!
