As we all know, men’s ideas of decorating can differ immensely from a woman’s idea of the perfect décor. If you are a man, or a wife decorating for your significant other, you may be looking for ideas on how to spruce up a den or other special room where men often gather to play cards, watch sports, etc. This article offers up plenty of tips and ideas for making any area where men gather to enjoy themselves more masculine.
Obviously, you don’t want to decorate a man’s den with florals, lace or other feminine accents. There are certain colors you will probably want to avoid as well, such as lavender, baby blue and pink. Woodsy, earth-toned hues are best for decorating a room with manly, masculine appeal.
The ideal furniture for decorating a man’s den can be anything from leather to rough, nubby fabrics in plaids or stripes. Wood furnishings upholstered in a plaid fabric containing colors like rust, brown and cream add a rich, comfortable appeal. Leather is always suitable; look for rough, worn textures in dark shades of mahogany or chocolate brown.
Tables and chairs used for playing cards can be anything from the metal, fold-out type to rustic looking wood with a worn look. Plain, simple lines free from intricate or elaborate details are best for decorating the den.
