The man cave has become a popular addition to the home – a place where the man of the house can watch football, hang out with the guys, play pool, or whatever else he enjoys. Now that football is in full swing, hockey has started the regular season and basketball in pre-season, there is no better time to discuss the man cave. Whether you want to turn a guest room, an attic, or the basement into the perfect man cave, here are some great furniture tips to keep in mind.
Design before you shop
Take some time to walk through the space and visualize what you would like your man cave to look like. Be realistic. Pick objects that you would like to make part of the room as your inspiration, for instance, a pool table, or jukebox, perhaps you have a jersey collection that you would like to feature.
Measure your space and using graph paper, draw a floor plan of your man cave, placing your objects comfortably within the space. Make a list of all the materials that you will require. If you are working within a budget, make sure to leave yourself an extra 10-15% allowance for any unforeseen expenses. Make a list of all the tools that you will require. Save money and borrow what you can from friends, or rent from a local home improvement store. Try to get some friends to help with the project. This should be a fun experience and there is nothing better than bonding with friends while building. Especially if they are going to be enjoying the man cave with you.
Consider Comfort, functionality and style
Men want comfort. This is not a secret. On top of comfort though, men want something that is very stylish as well, so keep that in mind when shopping.
Leather is a great choice because it is soft, durable, and masculine. If your budget is tight, you could also go for bonded leather furniture for the same benefits at a lower cost. Recliners are another popular furniture item for a man cave, especially for guys who want to kick up their feet and watch the big game. Functionality like storage space, cup holders, and added lighting built in to furniture adds a special touch and is perfect for any room.
