Every man deep inside would love to create his very own man cave. It could be built inside a spare room, garage, outhouse, the attic, or even the basement. After all, it will provide you with a personal space within the home that accurately reflects your personality and passions, and it will allow you to relax in both comfort and style.
Whether you want to watch a big sporting event, play a game or enjoy your favorite drink after a long, hard day, there will be nothing better than retiring to this space to enjoy much-needed downtime or the company of your buddies. If you have an area within your home you want to make your own, here are the must-have items for every man cave.
A Comfortable Recliner
If you plan to use your man cave to watch the biggest sporting events or the latest movies, you have to invest in a sleek and comfortable recliner. For example, you could purchase the Homall Single Recliner Chair, which offers soft leather padding and a budget-friendly price tag. Alternatively, you could relax in style with the Merax Barwick heated massage recliner chair, which offers eight vibration motors to melt away all stress and strain in your body after a busy day at work. You know that sounds good!
A High-Quality TV
Of course, every great man cave needs an XL TV. Don’t settle for a small screen or an inferior picture, as it will detract from your experience. If you want to impress your buddies when inviting them into your den to watch the Super Bowl or Champions League final, you should buy a superb piece of television.
For example, the LG B8 OLED offers a blend into wall design, so it will look as if it has been integrated into your man cave’s wall. The state-of-the-art TV delivers superior image and exceptional Dolby Atmos sound, so it’s perfect for immersing yourself in a sport, a movie video gameplay.
Another option is the Sony X950G that provides a brilliant 4k picture quality, with HDR performance and crisp images. There will be limited blur when watching fast-moving objects, so it’s an ideal choice for NFL season.
A Man Cave Fridge
Rather than running to the kitchen every half hour to grab a beer when watching an action-packed sport or fantastic movie, you should install a mini fridge into your man cave. It will ensure you never need to miss a moment of the action, as you can quickly grab a bottle or a snack.
Plus, it’s one feature that’s bound to impress your buddies when they come over to watch a major sporting event or to play a round or two of poker or pool.
A Poker Table
When there’s no sports on TV to pass the time, you could set-up a cool poker table and invite your friends over to host a game of home poker or two. It’s the perfect way to get some action after a busy week of work, as you can grab a beer, a bag of chips, and immerse yourself in an intense and competitive card game.
You also could increase your likelihood of winning by learning about the starting hands that will provide you with an edge over the opposition.
A Pool Table
Another option is a pool table, which could entertain you and your friends for a long time. It will allow you to unleash your competitive side and have some fun at home. Plus, it will also be an impressive addition to your interior, so your den will become the envy of your friends.
It is, however, essential to consider the size of the pool table before you buy. It will prevent you from buying a style that will dominate your man cave and could make it appear cluttered and claustrophobic. For example, you could purchase the 8ft Sam Magno American pool table, or you can opt for the slightly smaller Buffalo Eliminator II pool table, which is 7ft long.
Cool Sports Memorabilia
If you plan to regularly watch sports alone or with your homies in your man cave, you should create the perfect environment to do so by hanging cool sports memorabilia on your wall.
For example, you could frame and hang a signed NFL or NBA jersey on your wall, or you could create a photo gallery of selfies you have taken with your favorite players. It’s a great way to showcase your passion for a team or sport, which will make you feel right at home when relaxing with a beer in front of a big game.
A Sleek Bar and Stools
Make trips to an expensive local bar a thing of the past by creating one in your man cave. After a stressful day at home or work, all you might want to do is close the door on the world, pour yourself a drink and relax on a comfortable chair. If this sounds like your idea of heaven, you should install a cool bar and add some stylish bar stools into the space.
If you plan to invite your friends over regularly for a beer or glass of whiskey, you should ensure you provide plenty of stools to accommodate your guests. Don’t forget to stock up on yours and your friends’ favorite tipples, too, which will ensure they come straight over each time you invite them for a drink.
So, if you want to create a sleek, stylish, and comfortable man cave in the near or distant future, you should bear the above top tips in mind.
