Known as an undefined -- yet important -- aspect of any home, the man cave has grown in popularity due to being a dedicated space for the king (or queen) of the castle to relax and enjoy some of their favorite things.
The usual man cave will consist of sports memorabilia, a flat screen TV and a leather reclining chair or sofa, however this doesn’t provide the most exciting visual presence that one should demand from their one true space in their home. We at Octo Lights think you should take your man cave decor to the next level, and further showcase your personal interests in the one room meant for that very purpose. How do you achieve this? By installing decorative lighting, and more specifically, decorative light covers! Continue reading to learn about our innovative man cave lighting ideas.
Introduction to Decorative Light Covers
If you haven’t shopped our site before, you may be wondering just what we mean by decorative light covers. These innovations in decorative lighting cover any existing fluorescent light fixtures in your home, office, or business and transform any space into a work of art.
Consisting of a light diffusing panel, decorative light covers display a wide range of images to create an amazing effect while instantly expanding a room, making the most cramped of spaces feel more spacious.
For instance, if you have a cramped bathroom in your home, you can make it feel larger by installing cloud light covers on the ceiling, which will give you the same effect as a real skylight without the cost or hassle.
Now that you’re a bit more familiar with what decorative ceiling light covers are, let’s explore what they can do when it comes to finishing off your man cave.
Astronomy Light Covers For Your Man Cave
If you’re obsessed with the great sci fi movies, like Star Wars and Star Trek, then your man cave is the perfect place to showcase your fandom with space-themed decor and furniture items.
This means your space should be filled with sci fi movie memorabilia, futuristic furniture and, of course, our astronomy light covers. These light covers can be the icing on the cake for your sci-fi man cave, as they display gorgeous galaxies, nebulae and star systems, and will act as a backdrop that ties the entire man cave together.
You can even take it a step further and install multiple astronomy light covers on your walls to create the illusion of having a window into outer space. This will not only wow you but your guests will be thoroughly impressed as well every time they enter your man cave (with your permission, of course). Click here to shop our entire selection of astronomy light covers.
Ocean Light Covers For Your Man Cave
Are you a sucker for all things fish-related? Is your one favorite past time involve fishing on a boat somewhere with the relaxing water swaying you until you make a big catch? Then this is exactly what you should pander your man cave after.
Hang up your prized bass fish on the walls, alongside some fishing rods and use nautical themed area rugs and pillows. You could even install a fish tank (small or large) in the middle of your man cave to act as an appropriate focal point to your dedicated space. To finish it off though, why not try installing our ocean light covers on your walls or ceiling?
These light covers depict vibrant fish and other sea life, such as dolphins and sharks, which will have you and your guests in awe. Much like our suggestion with the astronomy light covers, you can install multiple ocean light covers to create a faux window in your man cave with a gorgeous view of the mesmerizing sea life.

Beach Light Covers For Your Man Cave
If you’re idea of an ideal day consists of laying out by the beach, with the sound of the ocean drifting by while you bathe in the shade of a looming palm tree, then you certainly deserve a tropical themed man cave.
In order to truly showcase your beach-bum sense of style, you should deck your man cave out in tropical decor items, such as fake palm trees (the small variety), tropical wallpaper, and maybe even a hammock, as opposed to a couch. Tie it all together with our beach light covers, which display beautiful images of several different beach settings, each providing the most relaxed and mellow atmosphere no matter what room you decide to use them in.
You can create a faux window into a tropical setting, which is perfect during the winter months, when the real weather outside your door isn’t so beach-like. Have your guests feeling relaxed whenever they decide to visit your man cave by shopping our entire selection of beach light covers here.
Custom Light Covers For Your Man Cave
While Octo Lights offers a wide range of light covers, we understand that we may not have the theme you, in particular, are looking for. We’ve solved this problem, though, by being one of the only companies to offer our customers custom light covers!
By creating your own light covers, your possibilities for personalizing any room are endless, which means your man cave could truly take on whatever theme or interest that suits you. For example, if you’re a diehard sports fan, you can combine your sports memorabilia with custom light covers that showcase your favorite players and teams. You could even create multiple light covers, that, when combined, make up one large image of a particular player.
On top of the fact that your options are literally limitless, Octo Lights makes the process for creating custom light covers extremely quick and easy. You simply choose an image based on our image requirements, upload your image to our website, and await a link so you can purchase your order. Learn more about creating your own light covers here.
