The dictionary defines a man cave as; " A room or space (as in a basement) designed accordingly to the taste of the man (or superhero) of the house, to be used as his personal area for hobbies and leisure activities."
It is practically every man's dream to have one; A space just for them to watch the big game without interruption, to play poker with the guys on Friday nights, or just a place to sit back, relax and admire the memorabilia decorating the walls. The great dads in our lives deserve a space where they could unwind after a long day at work. What better way to show some appreciation for them than offering them the option to design their very own man cave!
The first step is to make sure part or your whole basement is finished with strong durable walls that allow you to hang all of those keepsakes, neon signs, big screen TV, and most importantly, your very own " Man Cave " sign. Our EverLast Wall Panels are not only durable and allow you to hang the heaviest of souvenirs on them, but they are also pre-finished.
So this means no worrying about picking out paint colors! With the pre-finished panels, the walls are easy to clean and even easier to maintain. Durable and reliable-now that's a great start for a room that will get lots of use.
