Everyone needs a space to call their own. For guys, that space is ideally a man cave. It’s a place where they can be themselves, watch football, or get extra work done. A man cave is a place to unwind, where he can retreat to for some quiet time. Or, he can enjoy spending time with his pals or playing video games.
Most guys dream of having the perfect man cave. After all, it’s more than just a spare room or the basement. Man caves have been around longer than you might think! Throughout history, they’ve been known as cabinets, dens, or studies—places where a man could retreat, think, and read or write. Some famous men in history had man caves! Some examples include Thomas Jefferson’s study, Mark Twain’s writing hut, Henry David Thoreau’s cabin, and Thomas Edison’s library.
If you’re putting together your own man cave and need some tips on how to transform your space, consider the items below!
One of the first things to consider is the seating arrangements in your man cave. If you’ve got a large TV and enough space, theater style seating is ideal. Don’t have a lot of room but still want to relax in style? Consider a recliner. Check out our picks below!
Looking for comfort with style to match? Our handsome Darshmore Power Rocker Recliner is perfect for napping, watching your favorite shows, and simply relaxing the day away. Featuring a gentle rocking motion, pillowy cushions, and plush upholstery, the Darshmore recliner is a must-have for your casual living space.
Our Gregale Recliner boasts a sporty design and handsome rugged looks. But it’s not all about looks with this rocker recliner—it features soft, inviting comfort. Classic black has never looked better than with brown subtly aged faux leather. Decorative jumbo stitching brings together the two-tone design with a touch of refinement.
Put on a movie and sink into this supple, plush McCaskill 3-Piece Reclining Sectional. Seating areas are wrapped in our highest quality leather for a luxurious experience, while perfect leather-match upholstery on the exterior saves you money without sacrificing style. Prominent stitching, linear track arms, and a goes-with-anything gray hue add stylish touches. Keep beverages and remotes close at hand thanks to the loveseat’s center console and cup holders.
Another great choice is the Gamaliel 2-Piece Sectional with Chaise. Distinctive elements include a charcoal-hued upholstery, wonderfully supportive UltraPlush seat cushioning, and pampering back pillows.
If your man cave doesn’t have a wet bar installed, there are plenty of other options for your space. For instance, this Fold Away Bar is loaded with shelf space for bottles, glasses and stemware and includes two roomy drawers for utensils and serving essentials. The Jadonport Bar Cart on casters is perfect for mobility—plus it features a 5-bottle wine rack. Its mixed media wood-and-metal construction gives this bar cart’s clean, simple profile standout flair.
TV Stand/Media Center
If you’re not putting your television up on your wall, you’ll need a nice TV stand or media center. Consider the Tyler Creek 74″ TV Stand—it features standout rustic style. Framed doors with crossbuck detailing and clear glass insets bring a touch of modern farmhouse to the scene. If you’ve got a TV that’s up to 42” wide, the affordable Cooperson 42″ TV Stand is ideal. Designed with your enjoyment in mind, this open shelf-styled stand offers two shelves that are perfect for holding your media equipment. The large lower shelf with open ends can accommodate a pair of speakers, or you can use the space to display large accessories.
