Civilized Cave Men?

Hello DIY Community!

GoToGregg and I helped a community member with his home theater recently and on the heels of that solution, Glidden introduced their "Top 10" colors series. 

I was so surprised when I walked into the store and saw their brochure "Top Ten Man Cave Colors."

What outstanding options for a home theater!

Women, if you've been holding back from allowing your man to dwell in his own "cave," you can feel confident with Glidden's scheme.

These color recommendations are Right On! 

Not simply flat black, but rather a selection of deep- and mid-tones that are very pleasing.

Now, even if he still drags his knuckles on the ground, you can justify making your cave man a little more civilized!

Check out Glidden's Top Ten Man Cave Colors and other Top Ten schemes that will be satisfying in most any room in your home.

I was just thinking about what a great topic that could be for the How To Community.  The Wall Street Journal yesterday had a section that highlighted some examples of Man Caves.


Regarding colors, my wife is an interior designer, so I deferred to her for color selection.  In fact, now that I think about it, that was my birthday present 1 year....Now that is a clever way for her to incorporate her color selection into my Man Cave...  :smileywink:   hmmmm

Hey bladefrog,


I've attached a brief video to show the brochure and two of the colors. 


If you would like to see samples online, click here for the link to Glidden's site. HINT: if you click the color samples on their site, there is a "Full Screen" display function.


And above all else, make us guys proud and SHOW US YOUR MAN CAVE!

Hey Fletch,


I didn't mean to overlook your addition to the Man Cave thread.


The WSJ article was outstanding!


I certainly appreciate several points of view shared in their interviews.

I'm sharing my man cave. I'm quite pround of it... considering it is larger than our house, has 3 levels, a dj booth, a PA system and a light show, and fog! Okay, so it's really a "party barn", and not a "man cave", but perhaps they are close cousin?


Party Barn



Here's some more photos: More photos of the "Party Barn" on Flickr

I LOVE this picture of your "party barn"! The link to additional photos are awesome too!  When can we come over and party in the party barn???

Okay, Tara, truth in advertising.... The party barn has been TEMPORARILY converted to a staging/work area as we remodel our kitchen and mudroom. Next spring the party barn shall open again in all it's glory! I'll send you an invite... But actually it's quite nice to, as a giant workshop. :)

Whooops, just realized this is the paint area of the forum. Ummmm... hmmm... well the barn needs paint, and lots of it. Okay, this thread is back on track! :)

Hello Community Members!

Man Caves have become a bit more refined since the original post.

Today, we see "Woman Caves" and Home Theater that most likely exceeds any expectations we ever had for our homes ... virtual game stations where we play internet challenge matches on eighty-inch flat screens with surround sound that thunders around us with every maneuver.

The man cave has given way to a renovation craze that exceeds anything most of us ever imagined.

What makes your man cave outstanding?
