The modern sanctuary of masculinity that is the man cave can take many forms and exist in a small space just about anywhere.
A simple and safe space for sports memorabilia and treasured keepsakes from the past, a man’s man cave is also a place where he is likely to spend a lot of his personal leisure time. It should be a place where simple pleasures are close to hand, where there is a place for everything, and everything is in its place.
Here are five cool additions for your man cave that will make it a better place to be and give you more to do than just watch sports or listen to music.
The Perfect Chair in the Perfect Place
No man cave is complete without the perfect chair, the most comfortable throne possible for a king in his castle. Don’t underestimate the importance of your chair when outfitting your man cave, and don’t settle for a ‘computer chair’ or spare stool from the kitchen.
The quest for the best chair for you can be long and arduous, but don’t give up; there is always help available online to guide you in the right direction. A recliner is probably the most popular choice, but also look for something that rocks and swivels for more positioning options.
A Fridge for Your Favorite Beverages
Without the addition of cool beverages, no man cave is complete. Having a small refrigerator lets you keep chilled sodas and beers close at hand, and a surface to store snacks or other bar supplies in your man cave.
You may think that there aren’t many options in the small refrigerator market, but you may be surprised. Have a look for wine coolers that are glass-fronted and backlit. Their interior can be rearranged to suit and display soda or beer cans and bottles, giving the interior of your man cave an extra feature.
A Dartboard and Darts Fits in Any Space
You don’t always have a lot of space in a man cave, and not everyone can afford a pool table, a foosball table, or a pinball machine. Having a dartboard and some darts is a smart choice, giving you a game that can fit into just about any space.
All you need is enough wall space to hang a dartboard, and maybe the space for a chalkboard to keep score, and enough space to throw your darts from. Dart regulations say that a dartboard should be hung 5 feet 8 inches from the floor to the center of the bullseye, and darts should be thrown from a distance of 7 feet and 9- and three-quarter inches away. When not in use, all you have is a board on the wall and some darts in a drawer.
