Father’s Day is fast approaching. You’ve given him way too many novelty socks, he’s already got a favourite watch and there’s only so much footy paraphernalia a guy needs. So, what about gifting him an exciting beginning of something new – get him started on his very own backyard Man Cave!

Outdoor rooms are a huge design trend at the moment, so there’s plenty of inspo out there. From simple, upcycled Man Sheds to innovative he-cabins, we’ve collected our favourite backyard designs to spark your creativity and get the ball rolling.

Simple, modern, elegant.

This gorgeous architecture is a true work of art. Mixing expert, cutting edge design with plenty of natural light, this is a dream Man Cave to aspire to.

Loving how this design incorporates a deck for outdoor lounging, and large glass doors to let in the beautiful day.

This innovative pod mixes a unique, futuristic design with a classic decorative exterior; a great example of using creative wall art ideas to add character and texture.
This backyard Man Cave definitely holds some wow factor!

A step up from the up-cycled Man Shed, this beautiful backyard cabin looks like the perfect lounging space that could even double as a guest house! Furthermore, the inclusion of the outdoor fireplace has made it a great area for winter outdoor entertaining.

This simple yet stylish outdoor room design allows natural sunshine to brighten the interior, giving it a beautiful mix of indoor and outdoor comforts.

Man Shed meets greenhouse – this open-air workshop is perfect for the green-thumb. Add some climbers to wrap around the posts and a cooler under one of the work benches and you’re set!

Mixing creature comforts with fresh air, this modern indoor-outdoor design really does look like a cave!

A carport can be a great existing structure to turn into a Man Cave. This elegant design looks stunning against the natural landscape; all that’s missing is a tranquil water feature to complete the jungle oasis vibe!

Sometimes, less is more. This shed has been expertly turned into an outdoor cinema – perfect for a backyard BBQ and some footy.
