It may sound like something out of the Stone Age, but a man cave is a thoroughly modern way to give men a space of their own and women a little peace and quiet. Armchair quarterbacks can be as loud as they like with their cheering and taunting, and they’re corralled and separated from the center of the home—it’s a win/win!
Adding one is simple, so make room in your basement, unused bedroom or even your garage. Here’s what you need:
The man of the cave needs a throne and a recliner is the perfect choice. Personalize the space by your upholstery choice, including leather or microfiber. Then decide on the bells and whistles, such as power settings, USB chargers and built-in cup holders.
A place for friends to gather
Anyone with a man cave instantly becomes the most popular guy on the block, so you’ll need furnishings that can accommodate friends. A reclining sectional is the ultimate in man-cave hospitality. Friends can kick back and relax. Or go with a more traditional sofa and loveseat combination. Choose durable upholstery and neutral colors that hide stains.
A place for your TV
Every man cave needs a TV and a place to put it. This is a great opportunity to show off your personal style. You’ll find consoles and entertainment centers to fit any type décor, such as this cool industrial-inspired piece. A larger wall unit allows you to show off your sports trophies and memorabilia.
A place to set your snacks
Now you need a place to set your nachos, wings and micro brew. A lift top cocktail table brings your food to you, or choose a table that has drawers that keep your giant foam finger and face paint handy.
A little man cave ambiance
And there you have it. A man cave that even a woman would love! Next project: a She Shed.
