Ok so we all want a man cave, that’s why we’re here right? And I’m pretty sure most people have some common themes in mind – the pool table, that’s a given, the arcade machine – rude not to! The home bar? Might as well while we are at it.
But as each man cave is unique we’re going to need something above and beyond the norm, and that’s what we’re looking at today – five great ideas you might not have thought of which could actually make the difference between average and awesome! Let’s get started.

This is a man cave and we’re talking about what to hang on the wall? Most men when thinking of their ultimate dream cave pay more attention to what will be going in it there rather than what’s going to be on the walls – after all decorating isn’t for guys right?
Well we’re not talking drapes and color shades you’ve never heard of – we’re talking man-decorations! Maybe a shark head, or perhaps a singing moose, or one of the many other choices out there. Perhaps not the first thing you’d think to buy, but they can become a real talking point!
Ok so we’d all like Tony Stark’s iron-man-cave, complete with sports cars, but hey those classic cars aren’t cheap! And getting them into the depths of your basement isn’t always going to be an easy job.
So we’ve got one cheeky idea for you – why not just get a model? We’re not talking child’s-play here though, we’re talking full-on scale model replicas that look just like the real thing. Not only that they can be constructed in stages so people will wonder how you ever got them in the room.
Anyway it’s not like if you owned the real thing the insurance company would ever let you drive it, and these little wonders won’t be leaking any oil on your carpet. Still they can still reach into the tens of thousands so they certainly aren’t for the faint of wallet.
You might have the home cinema setup (and congratulations if you do!), but if you really want the true cinema experience (minus the other annoying people of course) there is one thing you just have to have – popcorn!
We’re not talking the microwave stuff either, for true man cave aficionados then there nothing will do but the real thing! Luckily you can get a full on commercial popcorn maker for less than one of the bulbs for your home cinema projector – so you’re not likely to break the bank.
Well this one might seem obvious – I mean of course after all those games of pool, and most likely beers from the home bar, you might need to take the weight off for a couple of minutes. Well this is where you can add another touch of cool to your man cave with a cool couch!
The one we’ve shown here is a Cadillac but there are plenty more of interesting, innovating designs out there, so why settle for a boring run of the mill seat when you can place your butt somewhere that truly stands out!

Ok so you might have that home bar installed and fully loaded, but you know what sucks? Having to poor yourself a beer! And until that lottery win a full time resident barman is out of the question, so what is the answer?
Well if you have half of that lottery win then the answer could be a robot barman! Loaded up will all the robo-skills to not only dispense drinks but also impress your friends, and never get tired of your bar stories. Plus we are have been guaranteed that it will not rise up and crush its masters in a judgment-day style rebellion.
So there we have it – five out of the box ideas for you to consider for your man cave. We’re sure there are many more out there, so why not let us know yours in the comments.
