Top 5: Man Cave Essentials

The man cave. A goal for most modern men but, for those in relationships at least, its a difficult sell but if you’re lucky enough to have an understanding other half or to be flying solo, there can be no better room in which to relax and unwind than that of a man cave. When it comes to kitting out your man cave there are a few essential elements that you will need to get right in order for all the other pieces of the puzzle to fall into place and we’ll look at these man cave essentials below:

1. Television

When it comes to man caves, there are few components more important than that of the television because, let’s face it, you’re most likely going to be watching films, sports or playing videogames in there and you’ll need an awesome television to make this all the more enjoyable. It will be difficult to top the 105 inch bendable Samsung television above in the awesomeness stakes and it offers jaw-dropping pictures, a curved screen to increase the viewing angle and some really fantastic features that will make it the most impressive item and focal point of your man cave.

2. Seating

If it’s good enough for James Bond, it’s good enough for our man cave. Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair above is the sort of seating that Rob Burgundy would have if he had a man cave and it will superbly compliment the array of leatherbound books and smell of rich mahogany that you’ll try and cultivate in your man cave. The Barcelona Chair has been around since 1929 so you know its of good stock and will make a very welcome addition to your man cave and, if you can stomach whisky better than I, you’ll be able to pretend that you’re Don Draper as you sit back and enjoy your bendable Samsung television.

3. Gaming 

Choosing a gaming system for your man cave has come all the more difficult due to the awesomeness of the next generation of consoles recently hitting the market but we think that the Playstation 4 is just edging things at present so if you’re planning on adding a gaming system to your man cave, Sony’s offering may well be the way to go. With over 100 games set to hit the market for PS4 in 2014, you’re not going to be short of entertainment over the next 12 months and the graphical capabilities of the console coupled with your awesome television will mean you’ll be picking your jaw up off the floor a lot.

4. Pool Table

If you get sick of the crystal clear definition of your Samsung television or weary of the comfort of your Barcelona Chair, you’re going to need a few other sources of entertainment in your man cave – and what better than a pool table crafted from the all-American icon, a Ford Mustang car? If you’re a bit of a pool shark, you’ll be able to perfect your potting with this immensely striking offering which offers the sort of uniqueness and awesomeness that will really make your man cave stand out from the crowd.

5. Bar

Nothing will get the party started better in your man cave than some good old fashioned alcohol and you’ll obviously need an alcohol storage receptacle that is in keeping with the pervading awesomeness of your assembled cave and, for that, you need one of these awesome reclaimed oak cooler above. It starts its life out as a French oak wine barrel but will be treated to the ultimate in retirement gigs in the form of your cooler of choice in your man cave. Capable of holding up to a hundred pounds of ice and booze, you’ll not have to make many trips to restock it during the game.
