Whats a True Man-cave without a Big Flat Screen TV and Craps Table

Several things including the number of current rooms in the home, the ability to add on to the existing structure, and the amount of money you are willing to spend, determine the size of the room. Although many people opt to finish the basement and transform it into a gameroom, other options are quite viable. Don't allow the fact that you don't have a basement stop you from creating your own personal gaming arena.

Customizing the location

If there’s some construction or renovation involved such as knocking out any walls, incorporating windows, adding electrical outlets, or installing plumbing, plan them ahead of time. Once this is all done, it’s time to figure out what will go into the room. If you’ve got plans for a billiards table, air hockey machine, or foosball set, make sure to allot enough elbow room for you and your guests.

Man-cave equipment

You can’t have all the big boy toys in the world, so prioritize the hobby or game you indulge in the most. Will it be the huge flat screen television for watching the big games, or the old-school arcade games? A custom poker table from businesses like Pharaoh Manufacturing would make your poker nights the highlight of everyone’s week. If you like rolling the dice but can’t spring for the custom job, there’s definitely a quality craps table for sale somewhere out there.

Décor and furnishing

If you plan to establish a theme for your man-cave, start with the room color then work your way down to the decorations, then the furniture and accessories. If the NBA or NFL are what you’re into, hang sports uniforms or team pennants on the wall. If automobiles are your thing, car-themed furniture and scale models should create the perfect atmosphere. Your passion is what will fuel your creativity, so go ahead and have fun with it.
