Five Man-Cave Must-Haves

A man-cave typically refers to a refuge for men. These men usually live with women. These women are generally in charge of the home, from choosing the furnishings to furnishing the rules of the roost. While a guy will most likely mind his p’s and q’s in the rest of the house, he can let loose once he crosses the threshold to his man-cave domicile. It’s in this peaceful and playful retreat where the male animal can reboot and revitalize—so long as the cave includes the following:

  1. Privacy
    As its name suggests, man-caves are cavernous places often found in the basement or garage. While the cave doesn’t necessarily have to be dark, it should be somewhat remote. Designating an open-air family room next to the kitchen, for example, is more suitable for a child’s play-space than an adult’s man-cave.
  2. WiFi
    Just because a man-cave is isolated from the rest of the house, doesn’t mean it has to be cut off from the wonderful wide world of internet. How else can a guy legally play games, surf gadgets and stream entertainment…like football and the news.
  3. A Big Screen
    Whether it’s on a computer or television, a wide screen is essential for a man to zone in his designated man-cave zone. Check out the selections at,, or
  4. Comfort
    After a long day of hunting and gathering, it’s key to kick the feet up and relax in a comfortable seat—be it a recliner, beanbag or even a massage chair. A number of options await at,, and
  5. Décor
    As mentioned, the woman of the house is probably in charge of decorating the home (that’s why she’s called “the woman of the house”) but a dude can do what he wants with the décor of his man-cave. So, why not create a real cave by writing on the walls? It’s actually not as unruly as it sounds—so long as you use Whiteyboard’s Clear Dry Erase Paint (paint kit $35;markers $0.99 each).
