Custom Home Essentials: The Man Cave


After a hard day of work, you deserve to come home and relax. In fact, you deserve your very own room dedicated to your relaxation and entertainment. You need a man cave. When building a custom home and/or a retro fit-remodel, you have the opportunity to incorporate a man cave right into your floor plans. Once your home is built and ready for you to enjoy, it’s time to start decorating your man cave with the top essentials.

Comfortable Furniture

Let’s be honest. You’ll be taking plenty of naps in your man cave. In addition, you’ll probably be watching your fair share of movies and television. Therefore, you’ll need some dynamite furniture to accompany your man cave. When choosing your furniture, make sure the sofa, recliner or chair matches your color scheme and passes the comfort test! Don’t be scared to try out your furniture in store to determine just how cozy it is.

When you’ve finally chosen your furniture, you have to decide how to arrange it. Many man caves employ the rising affect with two levels of furniture. This will allow all who enjoy the man cave to have a great view of the TV or entertainment center from any seat in the room!

A Stocked Bar and Fridge

Before you can begin thinking about stocking your bar and fridge, you need to get one first! When designing your bar, think about the layout of your man cave and how the bar will add to the overall atmosphere. Do you want the bar to be a nice addition or the main focus? How big should the bar table be? Do you need a mini fridge or a full size fridge? The answers to all of these questions will help you make your man cave a masterpiece.

A Jaw-Dropping Entertainment Center

From a flat screen TV to the game console of your choice, your entertainment center will very likely be the main focus of your man cave. Make sure your entertainment center has organized bookshelves, drawers and other features that will help and add to the overall feel of your man cave. Many entertainment centers now offer a variety of styles, textures and appearances, so you’re sure to find one that matches the style of your man cave.

Entertainment centers can also be built right into the walls of your man cave. Your custom built in entertainment center will be crafted exactly to your specifications and desires!

Incorporate Your Hobbies

Whether you’re passionate about sports, music, writing or the arts, be sure to add your personal touch to your man cave. From posters to pool tables to whichever musical interest you enjoy, add all of these aspects to your man cave for a complete experience.
