Man Cave…simultaneously one of the most overused terms of the 21st century (right up there with “misspoke” and “like”) and a top requested new home feature. What exactly is a man cave? It is different things to different guys—some don’t even know what they want their own man cave to be. More often than not, the man cave becomes a billiard room while others see it as home to the mother of all entertainment systems. Almost any man cave is going to be heavy on media and technology. Let’s layout some essential man cave accessories that will form the foundation of your dream room:
Turntables and Swivel Plates
Your man cave is almost certainly going to have a TV. Whether it’s the grand poobah of TV’s or the black and white one from your youth, it’s absolutely essential that you not miss a single touchdown or homerun no matter what section of your man cave you occupy. Turntables and Swivel Plates will allow you to rotate that TV so that it’s viewable from all areas of your man cave. The turntables and swivel plates aren’t just for the TV though. Set your speakers on a turntable to optimize sound positioning for your media center. You can even build a lazy susan for your coffee table and optimize snack distribution.
Media Access Center
What’s the worst part of hooking up peripherals to your TV? Hooking up peripherals to your TV! You have to stretch and contort to get everything connected to your TV. And what happens if you upgrade your sound system or replace your old DVD player with a Blu-Ray player? The hunt begins to find the cable that goes from the DVD player to the TV through the twisted nest of cords and dust. Making a media access center a priority in your man cave will neatly organize your peripherals and save you the frustration of fussing with mangled, knotted cords and dust.
Motorized TV Lift
It’s a motorized TV lift. Need I say more? Actually, I will say a little bit more. The motorized TV lift conveniently stores up to a 50″ flat screen TV in a cabinet safe from dust and would be destroyers of your TV when it’s not in use. The motorized lift is remote control operated and frees additional surface area when the TV is not in use.
So there are a few of the man cave essentials that you will need to fully enjoy your new man cave. Now, the TV, pool table, and arcade games to buy you’ll have to figure out on your own.
