When we think of design inspired rooms, we most often think of living rooms and bedrooms with color coordinating throw pillows and eye-pleasing wall art. We don’t usually think about baseball bats on the wall, or used tires doubling as a coffee table. Wrenches certainly never play into a design scheme. But a simple search of man caves on Pinterest can inspire even the most traditional of decorators to use their DIY skills to transform the most unlikely items into a guy getaway.
To help, here are our favorite basement and garage man cave ideas and themes on a budget. These are pulled from Pinterest and pinned to our aptly named “Man Cave” board. We had a lot of fun pinning these creative ideas and we encourage you to check it out!

Is your man a Motor Head? Your inspiration will tach out at 100 mph with these engine revving ideas. Consider starting your man cave renovation with used tires, with or without the rims.

Take it a step further and insert a piece of board between the tires for a handy storage space or display case. Or, cut out a cushion and fabric to fit the tire and turn it into a chair. There are so many upcycle ideas for tires out there!
