mancaveThe appeal of man caves are undeniable. The ultimate man cave does not require a lot, but it does require your own individual touch. A place to call your own, with furniture and decorations appealing towards your interests. A sanctuary where you’re free to be you. There’s something special about having an area that’s uniquely your own; no one to tell you otherwise on how you want it to look. The best man cave is the one you make. The idea of the man cave came into prevalence just a little over two decades ago. Some believe the phrase starting coming into recognition starting in 1993 with the popular publication, “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus”. At the time, the school of thought was that a typical house is predominantly a place where women ruled the roost, in a manner of speaking. Through time and contemporary sensibilities, a man cave is just now a place where anyone can go to be alone. They’re also a great place to gather with a group of friends to hang out and watch the game, enjoy a movie, play video games, or revel in a tabletop session. Originally, a man cave may have leaned more towards male sensibilities, but today they’re a little more open to both genders. Depending on your interests, a recreational room is a great addition to any home as a place to escape or relieve everyday stress.

mancave3A man cave works in any attic, basement, den, spare room or garage. Wherever you can find a corner to call your own would suffice in starting your ultimate man cave. No matter where your private retreat is located, the psychological benefits for having one is important. Historically, male only groups or social clubs have been around for a long time. Quite recently, there has been a steady decline in male-centric social clubs, such as, Masonic lodges. The tradition for men to come together seems to be embedded in our DNA as there are some anthropological studies which indicate that primal groups of men dedicated a space to come together and bond before going off on a hunt or to battle. Nowadays, the trend seems to be moving towards the home, where men are dedicating a section or space as their own.


Whether it’s a place where you keep a big screen TV or a place where you keep your gaming tables, a man cave is a sacred space where you’re free to have fun. There are limitless options in decorating with wall art, furniture and filling your living space with various prized possesions for your man cave. Depending on your plans, you can create a man cave that’s simple or exemplify extravagance, Appliances Connection can satisfy the look you’re going for. There are a few variants of a man cave out there, but a man cave will generally fall into one or a combination of five categories. In no particular order, here are some of the best ideas for a man cave:

1. The Sports Fan

Additionally, you may find an assortment of their favorite team’s memorabilia decorated and adorned throughout the space. A big screen TV is great, but only if comfortable recliners are available. The look is completed with a bar area equipped with a mini-fridge and/or beer dispenser.
