Congratulations, you’ve decided (or been granted permission) to build a man cave. Now you need to ensure that you have the best man cave ever. Here is a list of the essentials you’ll need to get started.
A Neon Sign
Nothing announces “you’ve officially entered the man cave” like a bright neon sign. You can find these at flea markets or specialty stores. If you can’t find a neon sign advertising your favorite brand of beer, then at least make sure you have at least one sassy quote on the wall.
When it comes to an entertainment system, bigger is always better. If you can have an entire home theater system, then you’ll get major points. Whether you’re watching the big game or playing your own games, your TV is going to be the focal point of the room, so that boxy one from ‘95 is not going to cut it.
Something Comfortable to Sit in
Since a majority of the time spent in your man cave will be done in a lounging position, you’ll need something super comfy to sit in. This could be a recliner decked out with cup holders and a mini-fridge, or a giant couch, or even a hammock.
One of the best parts about having a man cave is being able to decorate just like you did your college dorm. Don’t even bother getting frames for your Pink Floyd and Reservoir Dogs posters—just adhere them straight to the wall. Sports memorabilia is also important. Of course, you want to make sure your man cave is personalized, so whatever your favorite hobby—be it buck hunting or guitar playing—make sure to incorporate it into the décor.
Yes, you will of course have a TV and a gaming system. But what happens when your eyes need a break from the screen? What do you do with your buddies after the football game is over? Most men tend to put pool tables in their man caves. Don’t feel obligated to do what everyone else does. You can focus your attention on a dart board, a poker table, or even your favorite hobby.
If you’ve gone through all the trouble to make your own man cave, you might as well have access to draught beer 24/7. You can install a full bar, a kegerator, ice machines, and more. The most important part of a man cave is ensuring that you have a cold beer in your hand at all times.
