If you are really into models and you want to have a man cave that shows off your love for your favorite hobby, there are a couple of different ways you can go when you are decorating.
Some people will want to go all out and make sure there are models everywhere. Some other people might want to go with something a little more understated but still have the ability to show off what you love. Obviously, the amount of space you have to dedicate to your man cave is going to dictate some but we’ve brought you the top ten man cave ideas for model collectors to get your started.
10. Wall Prints
Wall prints that hang from your man cave walls will be a nice addition to any room. If you’re someone who is a military collector you can get some prints that show off a particular era you like to focus on.
Not surprisingly, if you are putting together a man cave you are going to want some models in the room. Go for diecast models that can actually be touched and moved around, or models can be put up in a place where people can’t get to them and will just be there in order to show off your favorite hobby.
While a TV isn’t directly tied to models, there isn’t a man cave in the world that is going to go without a TV. This will allow you to spend more time in that room and you can also watch specific shows about your favorite hobby or the real life objects the models are based on.
7. Corner Display Shelf
In your man cave, you are going to want to have some way to show off the models you’ve worked so hard to collect. The best way to do this is to come up with a display shelf that will take up the smallest amount of space possible. Using a corner display shelf will help save that space.
6. Framed Pictures
Some people might not want to have such a rustic appearance as using a wall print. Instead, they might want to go with a framed picture. You can go with any kind of picture or size of frame you want to hang on the walls and as long as you have the picture of models you’ll be having something that fits into the broader theme of the man save.
5. Wall Shelves
If you don’t want to have to go with a corner display shelf, you can always go with a wall shelf instead. This will take up less space than other display areas and will certainly allow you to show off your models easily.
4. Display Case
If you don’t want to use shelves, but would rather use a display case, there are a number of different designs you can go with. You can then either have the display case against the wall or in the middle of the room.
If this is going to be a true man cave you are going to want to have someone be able to sit when they are visiting. You’re also going to want to have somewhere comfortable to sit when you’re visiting your models. A recliner is certainly a great choice in this regard.
If you really want to have your man cave looking like a modeling cave you’re going to want to have a theme running through the whole room. In order to finish this out, you can get a rub that is fun and folksy or you can get one that has a nice picture or design geared towards your model.
1. Work Table
Decorating is always a plus when you are putting your modeling man cave together but for this kind of hobby you might want to do some work as well. You can get all kinds of different work tables together so you can look at your work and put more models together.
