The man cave used to be a sacred space and concept. But somehow, the sacredness of this piece of heaven was reduced to something trashy and ridiculous.
Some the society has found a way to reduce all male enthusiasms to the sexes most childish equivalent. This has made all men to appear as eternal boys who are stunted emotionally, play games, and never grow out of their adolescent obsessions. Truth be told, everyone of us would want to have a bit of space that they can decorate according to their will and use for their personal needs. When you cohabitate with a woman or get married, the space you once saw as yours alone becomes shared space. So, there shouldn’t be anything wrong with you having a small spot where you can do whatever you desire. Here are some tips on how to equip a man cave.
Equip your man cave with gadgets and gizmos that you are into. Remember it is your space, so make it as personal as you want. Suggestions for some of the stuff you should consider include:
Most guys play cards when they meet up at the man cave. So why don’t you deviate a little big from the norm and try out foosball. Apart from a poker table, a man cave should also include a foosball table, ping pong ball table, and pool table, and if possible an air hockey table.
So, why foosball? Well, foosball provides some high-energy and exciting fun. For this reason, do not choose just any table. Go for a quality one because when things get too exciting, things tend to break. With a high-quality foosball table in your man cave, you can keep the excitement and fun going long after the game you were watching on the TV has ended.
We have mentioned a pool table above. This is also another way to keep things exciting in the man cave. Men love challenging each other and there is no better way to prove you are better than your guys than through defeating them in a game of pool. Decent budget pool table would be the Rack Scorpius 7-Foot Billiard/Pool which you can get for under $900 but as you know elegant Pool tables can run you in the thousands.
The bigger the TV the better. Remember that TVs keep getting larger, so the larger the television you get, the longer the size of its screen will be acceptable. You do not want the guys complaining about your TV being small, so go big. If you want to be the envy of your neighborhood spring for the new 98″ Class Q900 QLED Smart 8K UHD TV which is the ultimate in luxury TV quality and screen size with unprecedented 8K HDR picture quality and it also includes AI-powered intelligent upscaling so that even lower resolution video is enhanced and just looks so much better.
Wireless Media Streamer
Most modern TV sets have the capability to handle DLNA server built-in. This allows you to stream your favorite videos and music directly from your other compatible devices over the Wi-Fi network. But if yours is an older model and doesn’t, consider purchasing a wireless media streamer. A Roku Stream stick is a great choice since it supports so many channels including linking to Plex if for you to have your content served from your own PC media library or the Plex cloud servers.
Buy new furniture such as plush couches or recliners with cup holders. Remember to furnish the room according to your taste. The Seatcraft Omega Sofa has powered headrests, trays, drink holders, storage and is the ultimate in sofa luxury for watching movies or gaming while in your mancave!
A refrigerator is one of the most important items to equip your man cave with. Choose one that has both a fridge and a freezer. No need to go big on this. Just choose one that will satisfy you and the guys needs. Also, consider adding a microwave. It will make things very convenient in there. Now look on Amazon and they even have a category for mancave fridges, and you can find one like the NewAir AB-850 Beverage Cooler and Refrigerator which has up to 5 racks and can support 84 cans, or remove racks for storing large items.
How else would you deck out your mancave? We didn’t cover painting colors, artwork to hang on the walls or of course having a PC / Console gaming center but what other ways would you furnish your mancave?
