Man Cave & Man Rooms
Although the latest rage in man cave ceilings is the open joist option, I have to tell you, I completely disagree. Yes, the look is industrial chic and has a “rough” appeal, but it lacks the practicality afforded by a standard plaster or drop ceiling option. We highly recommend you consider faux tin or polystyrene ceiling tiles for your man room. They are affordable, the installation is simplified and their PVC or polystyrene material has the additional advantage of being lightweight, virtually maintenance free, with superior sound absorption. Yes, proponents of the open joist plan seem to have forgotten about the practical acoustical issues fundamental to man cave requirements. A man cave must be a place where you and your buddies can get loud, blast the tv or stereo and not worry so much about disturbing everyone else in the house.
The ideal man room may very well resemble this “man cave” found on zillow with a stunning tin tile inset and yes, you too can buy the house for a mere $7 million or better yet, DIY and create your very own man cave — who really wants to maintain 24,000 square feet of perfection, anyway?
