Everyone knows all about the quintessential sports-themed Man Cave, and that’s great, but if you’re not a sports fan, you should still be able to reap the benefits of having an amazing room dedicated to your passion too! Here are five ideas from Man Cave that have nothing to do with sports and everything to do with awesomeness.
1. For the player
For this idea, you will want to have at least one (if not all) of the current generation game consoles, an HDTV, a surround sound speaker configured, and a dedicated ethernet hub near the consoles or a wi-fi connection for fragmentation. online. Hanging posters of your favorite games on the walls is also a great advantage.
2. For the home theater fanatic
The focal point of the Man Cave home theater is the TV screen, so make sure you have an HD TV with a nice picture and built-in Netflix (an interface to stream Netflix directly to your TV). Second, you need to make sure you have a great sound setting that you can fine tune so that you never miss any dialogue or detailed sounds (like the clink of glass in an explosion). Some other must-haves for this man cave theme are a Netflix subscription, a Blu-ray player, and a popcorn popper.
3. For the game room enthusiast
Some of the best Caves of Man are actually arcades in disguise! Whether you like billiards, table football, table tennis or darts, you can find a lot of different ways to decorate and distribute the room. This Man Cave idea doesn’t rely on a TV as the spotlight, so you’ll want to build the spotlight around your favorite arcade set. Pool tables, as well as dart boards, make great focal points for a game room. Go the extra mile and splurge on a wall-mounted bookmark for a nice finishing touch.
4. For the crowd of old English pubs
Home bars are amazing for obvious reasons, but if you are a true English pub enthusiast, you should take this idea to the next level and choose a pub table with matching bar stools. That, and there are places where you can buy old wooden English pubs that you can install in your home. Of course, this is the kind of design idea that screams for classic wooden pub signs and beer logo glasses.
5. For technology lovers
Similar to the Home Theater theme above, Hi Tech Man Cave revolves around a web-connected HDTV, Blu-ray player, and a great sound system (if you really want to go the extra mile, you might even spend a few bucks on first users a 3D ready TV). You’ll also need a wi-fi internet connection and a Netflix subscription (again, so you can stream content directly to your TV). The main component that brings all of this together (besides the TV) is a media server. I would recommend the recently updated Apple TV. It is smaller and more powerful than its predecessor and allows you to stream all kinds of content from the computers on your network, YouTube, and of course the iTunes store.
So, you see that there are many ways to get all the benefits of having a room dedicated to your hobby without it having to be related to sports. I hope you enjoyed these five quick ideas for Non-Sports Man Caves and can put some of them to use in your own bar or game room today.
