What Can Be Done with a Man Cave in the Basement?
Many people who are looking at finishing their basements are also looking at husbands and partners who can’t keep their feet off of the coffee table and starting to believe that the T.V. in the living room is being used all too often for games. They’re also starting to realize that the likelihood of them reasonably being able to entertain in that room keeps going down. So, what’s the solution? It’s what many families out there look to give that man a place to go that’s all his own: a man cave in a finished basement!
The decision to create one is fairly easy to come to choose its location, but then the question rapidly becomes what type of man cave does he want to have? At this point, it is up to the people who are going to be using the man cave who should decide exactly what they want. Here are a few of the man caves that are in fashion right now to pick from:
The Media Mogul is one way to go with an emphasis put on lots of comfort to watch games, play games, and have a few while they are at it! These rooms tend to have more leather furniture in addition to a big-screen television, poker table, and a tasteful bar.
The Vintage approach involves concentrating more on the aspect of having a drink in a great space with lots of friends. This is as close to having a bar in someone’s basement as is humanly possible! These tend more towards the concept of bar stools, long counters, and lots of spirits.
The Golf Aficionado style makes a man cave into everything golf with an emphasis on practicing that putt inside and being able to watch the game on the big screen with fellow fans. Get used to seeing green in these spaces!
The Theatre Experience can be a family affair but can also be set up to favor a group of guys on deep, leather chairs watching the game on a theatre screen.
All-But-The-Garage involves making a basement into a place where cars are to be talked about until the wee hours of the morning! Emphasis on posters, pool tables, and all-things that burn fossil fuels.
It’s All About the Game makes a man cave focused on lots of screens so that everyone can watch just about every sports game that’s playing at that moment! Here a bar is a must, as is comfortable seating.
Poker Paradise focuses on the game and nothing else! This is for the person who wants everything in their spare time to involve poker chips, cards, and the bluff. These caves have plush, comfortable seating and large poker tables for groups to sit around and while away the night looking for the perfect hand.
These are just a few ideas for a good finished basement that begs to be turned into a man cave. As always, though, consult with professionals to ensure that man cave is something that everyone involved will be happy with!
