An area for the men of the house to migrate to and get out of the way of the women and children has always been a desirable thought, and with “man-caves” becoming more and more popular, it seems as if this desire is becoming more and more achievable. Man caves can come in the forms of sheds, out-buildings, spare rooms or even a garage conversion – but whichever they are, we believe that there are a couple staples that are a must when it comes to designing a man cave; and today we assess the priorities when it comes to building your mancave.

The first thing that springs to mind when building a man cave is that you need somewhere to go to enjoy a beverage – so a fridge, or even a bar if space allows is essential. There would be nothing worse for a man cave if you had to keep leaving to go a collect drink for you and your guests so a mini fridge would do just fine. If you are wanting to take it to the next level, a bar with working lager and/or ale pumps really adds to the aesthetic and makes it feel as if you are in a pub, accompanied with a fresh pint out of your own pump!
Next on the list for the man cave essentials is a TV in which friends and family can come around and watch all the big sporting events in the comfort of your man cave. This is essential for any big sports fan like me, we wouldn’t want to miss out on any big football match, especially when there is betting involved. Betting markets have been reignited now games have been able to be played behind closed doors and therefore betting sites not covered by limiting schemes such as Gamstop have seen a surge in traffic. We’ve seen this due to their huge deposit matches on all markets as well as unbeaten sign up offers for new customers – and the surge of traffic isn’t due to stop, especially now with the reintroduction of sport.

The final part missing to the jigsaw for the man cave is the other forms of entertainment provided for guests when there isn’t any sport on – we believe this can come in the form of a darts board, and if space allowed a pool table. Both give the man cave an element of competition to become King of the Cave and they can be used to spend hours of fun on.
