6 Things That Your Man Cave Needs

Ideas for a man cave – Every man deserves a place in the house where he can showcase his prized possessions, whether that’s anime figures, sports memorabilia, retro video games, or something else entirely.  Often referred to as a “man cave,” this space is where a man can relax for a while and just be himself.

Each man cave is unique. You should fill yours with the things you love. There are some things that every man cave needs, however. Here are a few to consider.

Man Cave Ideas

A Television

A TV is a must for any man cave. While you might have a television in your living room, you might want to watch football or baseball while the kids watch their favorite shows. You may decide that you want to spend the afternoon playing a video game online with your closest buddies without interrupting your wife. Maybe you want to host the guys to cheer for your favorite team. Or, perhaps you want to invite the rest of the family in for a cozy movie night. A large, flat-screen TV lets you do it all.


Sure, you have a big-screen TV, but to make the experience even better, you need to have some quality speakers. Hook them up to the television to make it feel as if you’re right in the stadium, cheering on your favorite sports team with the rest of the crowd. Or, if you’d rather have some music with a drink or poker game, hook up some music and fill the space with your favorite tunes.

Comfortable Seating

Of course, where would you relax if you didn’t have someplace to sit? You’ll also want to make sure that you have places for any guests you invite into your man cave to sit as well. Place a sofa, some recliners, lounge chairs, or any combination of seating that works best for you. No matter what you choose, just make sure every piece of furniture is comfortable. After all, if you want to spend any length of time in your man cave (and you probably will want to spend a lot of time in there some days), the place needs to be cozy.

A Mini-Fridge or Bar

There’s nothing worse than getting comfortable in your man cave than realizing that your thirsty or hungry. A mini-fridge and bar are the perfect additions. You can stock up on all of your favorite beverages without having to worry about taking up room in your kitchen fridge or leaving drinks you don’t want your children having access to in places where little hands might be able to reach them. When you get thirsty, you don’t have to go far to make yourself your favorite drink.

A Secure Place to Store Valuables

No matter how big or small your man cave, a place to store valuables is essential. It doesn’t have to be just your belongings that you store there, either. You can keep vital documents and belongings for your entire family stashed in one secure location. Consider a small wall safe or custom gun safe that no one will be able to access but you. You may also want to share the code with your wife in case you need her to get something for you.

Something Fun

What’s a man cave without something fun other than the television? Sure, if you love video games, you can always play on your favorite console. Other interactive activities are also great to have.

Here, the options are limited only by your imagination (and the size of your man cave). If you’re not sure what to include, consider some of these great additions:

  • A pool table
  • A foosball table
  • A ping pong table
  • A dartboard
  • A poker table

Your man cave should be a reflection of you. No matter what it’s size or shape, decorate how you see fit and be sure that it has everything you need to feel completely at home!
