The Perfect Man Cave

Blog by Joe Campbell | February 4th, 2021

Are you looking to upgrade your man cave? Or wondering what to do with that spare bedroom? Look no further! Keep reading to check out my man cave must-haves. With everyone spending more time at home than usual, creating a place where you are able to relax and unwind is more needed now than ever before.

Whether your a sports guru, gamer, movie junkie, or just love to relax with a cold drink at the end of a long day, your man cave is the perfect place to unwind. The men over at Man Cave Day recommend starting the planning of your mancave around a theme. Some popular man cave themes are Retro, Modern, Gameroom, Sports, Bar, and Music. Once you choose a central theme it will make designing easier.

The most popular, and in my opinion important part of any man cave is the TV - and I think we can all agree the bigger the TV the better! The men over at Improvnet agree it’s the perfect place to watch Sunday football with your buddies (or immediate household considering our current condition).

Comfortable seating is the next must-have in my books. Leather sofas are a great touch as they add a comfortable touch with the added bonus of being easy to clean. Family Handyman recommends when possible, putting seating against walls or using the space behind your gaming chairs for storage or display tables, and keeping the center space as open as possible.

Next up - let's discuss a bar area. A bar is a great addition to any man cave, if your room isn’t big enough for a full bar, try adding a bar cart. Here's a sample of an industrial style bar cart I think would go nicely in any space:
