VANCOUVER, COQUITLAM, VICTORIA, AND OKANAGAN, BC…
In your dad’s day, the stereotypical man’s domain, or “man cave,” was the workshop in the garage. Today, the man cave is often the basement den or office. When it’s time to watch the Canucks and the resident “caveman” wants to entertain other cavemen and their better halves, he’ll likely realize that his sanctuary might need a little upgrading. DirectBuy, the leading members-only showroom and home design center, has some pointers for making your man cave guest-friendly for the regular season and upcoming NHL playoffs.
“While being able to get away from the rest of the house and watch a game in peace may have been the genesis of the man cave, what might not have been taken into consideration initially was the desire to someday invite others to watch the game with you. And setting up a space fit for entertaining guests is something a lot of men may want some assistance with,” said Jade Allen, owner of DirectBuy of Vancouver.
So what items might today’s cave-gent need to complete the perfect indoor tailgate party?
Kegerator – a man-cave essential for a beer-drinking crowd
Wide Screen TV with HD; surround sound speakers optional but highly desirable
Sectional sofa to accommodate multiple visitors; reclining chair with cup holders for the host.
Full-size built-in bar area or free-standing, mobile bar station
Tile or wood flooring that’s particularly resilient to potential spillage
Pool table, air hockey or foosball for between-periods recreation
Mini-kitchen with microwave to reheat buffalo wings.
Home gym equipment—e.g. treadmill, elliptical—to work off the excess calories consumed during man cave weekend marathon.
