3 Reasons Why You Need Posters For Your Man Cave

Winter is upon us, so that means less outdoor activities and more indoor isolation for you and me. That's not necessarily a bad thing, if you've got that special place inside of your home that's uniquely tailored to fit your needs. 

Your man cave is more than just a separate room filled with meaningless trinkets and funky smells.

It's your safe space, a safe space that lets you express yourself in the way you want without judgement from anyone else.

Let's be real, relationships can be a challenge to maintain and as such, they need constant work to survive the ups and downs in life especially when you've got kids.

Kids aren't easy to manage, but always are worth it in the end. Sure they get into everything you have, and ask you a ton of questions, but that's just the way it is.

On top of that, you've got to balance your work-life situation with your partner to prevent things from going downhill. 

Life can get a bit hectic at times, and as men, we all need to find an outlet to help us deal with things.

That's why it's important that you style your man cave in a way that's true to your nature.

You've got a sacred place that nobody is allowed to enter into, without your explicit permission.

A place where you and your friends can just "kick-it" and be free to be men.

No worries, no cares of this world, just your ultimate expression, enjoyment and, relaxation.

Your choice of wall decor has the power to elevate your cave forward in the most unique and satisfying way.

It's the one element you should pay close attention to, because images are powerful.

A picture is worth a thousand words; you've all heard that before, but it's true.

Take a look at your man cave, and see where you can improve upon things a little.

Here are three simple reasons why you need posters for your man cave. 

1. Helps You Be Optimistic About The Future 

Helps you be optimistic about the future, what? Just hear me out for a second.

I view posters much in the same way as I view art, because art takes on many different forms.

I love printing posters, making beats, and putting together tracks, that's always been a part of me. It's one aspect of artistry in another form.  

Chefs view fine cooking as an artform to be respected, and it is.

Posters are the same way in as much as a laptop in an extension of a desktop computer.

Posters are the natural extension of an art piece.

Whether you draw or photograph images, you are creating a visual expression composed of ideas.

The original Terminator movie is a perfect example. There's a ton of Terminator movie posters available.

These posters aren't meant to compete with traditional fine art prints, but rather they represent not only our current reality, but the future.

Terminator is all about the rise of the machines, and what can occur if we let killer robots take over.

A dystopian future devoid of hope and humanity.

But we're looking for optimism, and not murderous machines for inspiration.

Our reality is that, machines are an integral part of our daily lives. 

The amount of computing power in your smartphones is probably much more than you realize.

The technology behind adaptive cruise control in your car can all be attributed to A.I and machine learning.

 

How many of you used to dream of owning supercars as a kid?

How many of you remember this popular poster from back in the day? It was something you thought could be possible for you in the future

It gave you a reason to hope for a better future for yourself and your with a greater sense of optimism. 

 

2. Makes Your Man Cave More Stylish

Who wants to stare at bare walls? You certainly don't.

You've spent all this time and effort setting up your TV, your video game system ,and your bar.

Why not hang up posters that compliment what you're trying to accomplish with your man cave?

I say there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to posters. Some of us love sports, eSports, animals, abstract posters etc, the point is to put something up that you vibe with.

We're naturally drawn to visual stimuli because it's much easier for our brain to process images than words. 

  • Hubspot: “90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.”

It's important to note that 60,000 times faster can't be traced to the original source, so I can't verify the truth behind those facts, but you get the picture.

Likewise, nobody ever went to an art gallery to stare at barren walls. Visit any hall of fame gallery and you'll see photos all about the place.

A photo tells a story when taken right, and your man cave is telling a story about you whether you know it or not.

Posters give an insight into what you like, and what you're about. 

So if you've got blank walls, then you ain't saying nothing which leads us into my next point.

 

3. Tells Your Story

There are many major events in history that are worth remembering. Posters of photographs do an amazing job at detailing events not only in your personal life but in general.

The American South was a terrible time for Black Americans, especially you black men.

Dr. Martin Luther was a symbol of hope for many Americans, white and black.

One of the most popular Canadians in our country who's been called the greatest hockey player of all time.

Steve Jobs, the man responsible for the iPhone.

When you're decorating your cave, go for what inspires you. You don't have to listen to anyone else, it's all about you.

I think we can all agree that every man caves needs posters. Posters help give your cave a bit more life in addition to the other things.

They are personable, unique, and most of all fun to look at.

I always get a kick out of watching videos of guys doing up their caves. The amount of time you spent making things just right, is on another level.
