Man Cave Furniture Buying Guide

Size

So, is there anything you need to consider before purchasing your man cave furniture? Well, what about size for a start. Do you have the space available and if so, is it limited? This can depend on whether your man-cave is just going to be a bar, games room or sports area. Certainly, a pool room, where you’ll want to feature a pool table or air hockey table, is going to require a large amount to space.

On the other hand, you may just be looking at a smaller area for drinking purposes and watching TV. This is where measurements are so important so take note of item specifications when buying units, cabinets freestanding bars etc.

Shape

Is your allocated space in an L-shaped room? If so this will also limit the size of furniture. On thing to keep in mind here is that when purchasing items such as a beer fridge, the door maybe on one side and not changeable to the other. This means you will need to consider where the unit will go so that the door will not be impeded when opened.

You may have a larger L-shaped room in which you intend to add a pool table. This is usually very awkward so make sure you have enough room to line up a shot with a pool cue in hand. Will the cue hit any walls when pulling back to play a shot? The shape of your room can be deceiving so make sure you measure correctly.

Surroundings

You may already have a man cave that you’re expanding or adding to. If this is the case, you will have surroundings that you should match into. To put this simply, if you have a blue room you’ll want to add more blue stuff. In other words try to buy man cave furniture that matches the existing features you already have. If you have a retro look, keep the retro feel going throughout your room. If your man cave is timber lined, you may want to add items that enhance the timber ambiance. This can still be achieved with unique man cave furniture but you’ll need to make sure it ties in.

Deviating away from a theme can make your man cave haphazard and feel half finished. You want the best man cave in the street, not the most erratic.

Budget

Finally, your budget is going to play a major factor in the man cave furniture you acquire. I don’t advocate over spending but it goes without saying that you generally get what you pay for. Stick within your financial limits but try to look for unique furniture to make your man cave features get noticed. This can be a balancing act but with a bit of due diligence and research, it can be achieved.

Is your man cave rustic styled with a good amount of space for a steel coat rack? You remember those cold winder nights when your mates bring around a nice warming bottle of scotch whiskey. They’re all rugged up with multiple layers to keep them from freezing their bits off!

Well, they need somewhere to hang their thick layered coats and what better that a coat rack with hooks that look like they’ve come from a fishing trawler. Seriously, you’ll love these industrial steel hooks that are mounted on a strip of steel, which is bolted to a pine strip that has been given the distressed look.

Pro’s

? Welded chain links & gears
? MOPAR emblem
? Urethane protective finish

Con’s

? Possible waiting period

When was the last time you saw a clock like this one? No need to answer that, you’ll probably never have seen one like this as they are very rare. But if you’re into cars, engines, mechanics or just intricate ornaments then you’ll love this timing gear clock.

Although they are aimed at ‘rev-heads’, these clocks would suit many a man cave due to the uniqueness of the clock and the oddity of such man caves. You couldn’t really put one in your kitchen, now could you?

The full size of this gear set is approximately 7”W x 10”H x 1”D. Made from steel, you’ll find each link in the chain has been welded, and the chain is welded to the gears. This creates stability, and therefore the timing gear set clock will never lose its shape. You’ll love the deep glossy protective finish that comes from the applied urethane. Several coats of urethane have been applied after the steel is polished using a grinder.

Completing the finished product sits the ‘MOPAR’ emblem in the center of the timing gear. And the clock numbers, they’re CNC machined (pre-programmed manufacturing process where computer software dictates the movement of machinery) from billet aluminum. What a nice piece of work.

If you like this clock but would prefer a slightly different design, they have more available to check out, just click the ‘Check it Out’ button to see them.

Great features include:

  • MOPAR emblem
  • Welded steel for stability
  • Size 7”W x 10”H x 1”D
  • Urethane protective finish

Some of these clocks are already in stock which means they can be shipped out to you immediately. Others will be built after placing your order and could have a waiting period depending on the backlog quantity.

Note: all these clocks are made with genuine automotive components and will astound your guests when they come to check it out.

#4 - Wooden Hunters Themed Stool

Pro’s

? Hand carved
? One-of-a-Kind
? Racycled materials

Con’s

? Personal taste (not for everyone)

Ahh, okay. We’ve really included this as a bit of fun, although it is still considered man cave furniture. It must be mustn’t it? Where else would you put a stool like this! Not that it’s of great taste and or style but there’s got to be a hunting cabin out there that would suit one of these unusually themed stools.

No, the legs weren’t chopped off a huntsman, as my son asked me when reviewing this! Although the likeness is extremely good. It’s a handmade item from recycled materials such as boots, clothing and of course the wooden legs etc.

Your hunter’s legs are even covered in camouflaged pants, and the boots as authentic as ever. There’s 5 hand carved Oak wood branches arranged for the seat and the stool legs are also crafted from Oak wood. It sure is unusual to say the least.

Standing at 20 inches, the stool is 14 inches wide and 15 ½ inches deep.

Unusual features include:

  • Hand Carved Oak wood
  • Recycled materials
  • Authentic
  • Fast delivery

This is a One-of-a-Kind Hunters stool so if you’d like it then take a look. It certainly isn’t for everyone and you’d require a certain type of place to store it. However, what a talking point. Imagine the laughs you’ll get when the guys come around for a beer. So unique.

#5 - Sazerac Rye Whiskey Bottle Lamp

Customer Reviews

Pro’s

? Bourban filled lamp
? Wooden pine base
? Brass fittings

Con’s

? No exchanges or cancellations

I know the attached image looks like a sultry scene from ’50 Shades of Grey’ but this lamp will provide your man cave with so much more ambience than most other lighting. That’s if ambience is what you are after, other’s may prefer full on downlights. There are however, some single men that own man caves, and lamp lighting like this may just prove to be a exactly what they want!

The main bulb of the lamp is made from an upcycled Sazerac Rye Whiskey bottle and can you believe it, filled to the brim with authentic Bourbon Barrel Char. It’s then attached to a reclaimed pine wooden base which has been hand carved. It is completely handmade and features a 6-foot wire that has been covered in black twisted cloth.

You’ll love the brass fixtures which encompass an easily accessible keyed socket, heavy duty brass socket with harp and vintage reproduction plug. These brass fittings go extremely well against the dark Bourbon bottle lamp. Take note though, there is no lamp shade included but you may inquire with these guys as to acquiring one.

The size of the lamp is 1’10” tall x 4” wide x 6.5” long. Yeah, it’s a really good size and any bottle of Bourbon is going to get noticed in a man cave. Your guests will love it and look on with envy. The supplier also has other bottle lamps available so if you’re not a Bourbon fan, you may find a different liquor type.

Great features include:

  • Handmade Bourbon filled lamp
  • 1’10” tall
  • Pine wooden base
  • Brass fittings

Note that exchanges or cancellations are not accepted but returns are
