The Man Cave: Why Every Man Should Consider These Six Items

Man caves are considered to be the ultimate place for a guy just to chill out. Many people argue that a living room can essentially serve the same purpose, but any dude that’s spent time in a man cave knows there’s a huge difference. Whether you’re looking to create a man cave with a spare room or improve the one you already have, these are several items you should consider adding.

Mounted Flat Screen TV

What’s better than a 60 inch flat screen TV mounted on the wall? Not much else. Mounting your colossal TV will free up room in your man cave for other stuff, and you’ll likely enjoy the optimal viewing angle. Throw in the latest gaming console, and you probably won’t ever want to leave your man cave again.

Dart Board

A dart board is a simple and inexpensive addition to any man cave, but it can provide hours of entertainment. Use it during TV commercial breaks or when you want to spark up a bit of competition between you and your friends.

Comfy Sectional

Possibly one of the most integral parts of a man cave is comfortable seating. Without a great couch to kick back on, what use is a man cave anyway? Go for a sectional so that you can seat all your friends when they come over to watch the Super Bowl. If you still want to have your own seat with optimal comfort, consider adding a reclining chair, but don’t give up the sectional for this.


No guy wants to periodically return to the kitchen from his man cave to grab drinks or grab more chips and dip. By adding a refrigerator to your space, you can have your drinks and food within feet of the couch. A mini fridge is a cheap investment that is very practical for any man.

Hot Tub / Spa

A man cave just isn’t complete unless you add a hot tub or spa. You can use it whenever you want to unwind after a long day at work, or when you have friends, especially girls, over for drinks. Hot tubs and spas can be used year round too, making it a perfect investment for your home. With professionals to help with water services, you can have a one of a kind hot tub up and running in no time.

Movie / Band Poster Decor

Of course, you don’t want to leave the walls of your man cave barren, either. Find posters of your favorite movies and bands online, and then hang them around your man cave to liven things up a bit. For a classier look, go with unique photographs or paintings from places you’ve been or want to travel too. Keep the wall décor simple to avoid distraction form the real purpose of the area.

Overall, it’s a great idea to personalize your man cave as much as possible. A man cave exists for comfort and relaxation, so it’s your job to make it as inviting and comfortable as possible. Also, be sure to check out pictures of others online for inspiration.
