Man Room Makeover

A fellow Nestie wrote to me recently about her husband's man room:

I would love help with DH's office/jam room/man room! We were just talking about colors today. We're definitely going to paint - we're thinking a shade of green. Maybe antique moss by Olympic? It's a long narrow room at 19.25x9. We haven't done anything but hang curtains. Here is the space:

He's into scary movies, music (I'm sure you can tell by all the equipment) and food! He doesn't like how everything seems pushed to the walls. I told him we need to move some things up to vertical storage and get rid of lots of stuff.
Thanks for the ideas!

A music-movie man room with lots of storage? Sounds like a plan. Here's the visual version:

(Click to make larger)

  • The television will stay in between the windows with a new stand for more storage
  • Floating shelves will be mounted above the television for more storage/decor
  • On the opposite wall this desk will provide storage for CD's/DVD's/books/decor
  • To the left and right of the desk will sit leather chairs, which will be angled toward the television (I liked these chairs because they look like director chairs and go with the movie poster theme)
  • Bench shelves will go beneath each window to house books, etc. and for additional seating
  • Movie posters/wall hangings should be pared down and those that are kept should be matted, framed and hung on the walls for a gallery effect
  • A rug on the floor will help to lighten up the room and break up the green
  • The guitar will be mounted on the wall for easy access
