For members of the Orlando Magic, preparation for the upcoming NBA season means several weeks of intense practice in training camp. For Magic fans, getting ready means preparing their “man caves” for several months of equally intense NBA viewing–particularly when those games involve the team from south Florida.
In your dad’s day, the “man cave” was the workshop in the garage. Today, it’s typically a finished room in the basement where the man of the house might work out, have an office, and, of course, watch sports—especially when it’s local NBA entry, the Orlando Magic. DirectBuy, the leading home improvement and furnishings club with direct insider prices, has some pointers for making the man cave guest-friendly for the upcoming NBA season and beyond.
“While being able to get away from the rest of the house and watch sporting events like basketball 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,” said Brian Cohen, owner of DirectBuy of Orlando. “Let’s face it, if you’re setting up a space fit for entertaining guests that’s something most men may want some assistance with.”
So what items might today’s man cave need to complete the perfect hoops-watching party?
- Kegerator, a man-cave essential for a beer-drinking crowd
- Wide Screen TV with HD; surround sound speakers also recommended
- 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 spillage
- Pool table, air hockey, or foosball for halftime 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 basketball marathons.
