Father’s day is near and so it seems like the perfect time to share some tips for the ultimate man cave! Typically I would talk about the kitchen when it comes to indoor entertaining and so I wanted to focus on the men today. Every guy deserves a dedicated space where he can rock out on the guitar, hang out with his buddies to watch the big game, proudly display his trophies and collections, and just kick back, relax and watch action movies. Whatever the occasion, Sheely’s can help you make sure the guy in your life has all the essentials for his awesome “man cave.” Here are our top five essentials:
1. The Entertainment Center
A nice, large entertainment stand is our number one essential for the Man Cave. The bigger it is, the better – so he can have the largest screened, highest definition TV out there! Don’t forget storage space. Every guy needs a place to store those video games, DVDs, and comic books and plenty of shelves to display the things he loves! We love the Magnussen Home Harper Farm Industrial Entertainment Wall with Sliding Barn Doors. Hip, functional, and enviable, this wall unit is a great way to customize your home without a costly and permanent remodel. It’s brimming over with storage space for your TV, media players, and game systems, including deep, bin-style drawers in the console base for storing your DVDs and extra components. When not using the TV, the barn doors slide closed to cover it and protect it on billiards night!
2. Cozy, Reclining, Theater Seating
It’s game day – or movie night and nothing beats kicking back in a nice reclining sofa with plenty of cup holders for soda or other beverages. We love the Best Home Furnishings Brinley 2 Seven Piece Power Reclining Home Theater Group with Three Drink Holder and Storage Consoles. It has a masculine look yet fashionable with nailhead details and mailbox arms. Not only that but the high-density foam cushions makes sure the seat and back have a soft support that lasts for years of use.
Your entertainment center has storage for games, movies, and video game consoles – and if your husband is anything like mine – DVDs alone can take up most of that space! Bookcases are a great way to store those trophies or other items that he wants on display yet out of the way! We love these Liberty Furniture St. Ives Traditional Executive Open Bookcases. This bookcase comes in 48″, 60″, and 84″ so you can choose the size that’s best for your space or stack them together for a unique look.
4. The Bar
The bar is the place where friends can gather, share drinks, play cards or watch their favorite teams. A place where they can battle it out over whose team is going to win the championship. It’s also great for all the adults in your household who wanna sit back and unwind. We love the rustic/industrial look of this casual multi-color bar with iron footrest by International Furniture. It includes a ten bottle wine rack and concealed shelving behind the bar to store all of your entertaining accessories. A great mid-sized bar that won’t take up too much space.
5. A Beverage Cooler
You can’t have a bar without a beverage cooler! A smaller, more efficient alternative to a larger refrigerator – the under the counter beverage cooler fits conveniently behind the bar so your guy can store his favorite beverages and keep the beer out of the kitchen! We love the 24″ Under Counter Beverage Center by Electrolux.
