So you finally got your man cave, your own private space for you and the boys to chill out and watch games in peace or be banished there when you are in the dog house with your significant other. Now let’s talk about furnishings for your case, which sofa to get and how to choose one. A sofa is a centrepiece in a man cave, it’s also the one piece of furniture with the most traffic, so among the things you want to consider, durability should be one of them.
The sofa and the TV will be the most used items in your man cave, so it needs to be functional. Firstly it should be comfortable enough to spend two hours watching a game or five hours bingeing on a series. Depending on your budget, you can keep it simple or ultra-modern contemporary with charging ports, memory foam, and bells and whistles. If your man cave will also double as a sleeping area, it’s best to get a sleeper sofa. Depending on the room size, you can opt for a sectional sofa.
Most, if not all, furniture outlets or online retailers have cheap living room furniture sets that are of good quality. Some stores will allow you to separate these sets and save some money on the selected pieces. You want a sofa that will last a good few years and be easy to clean, especially if you have pets and children. Leather usually is the go-to for a man cave, but it can get pricey.
Fits In With The Design
For most guys, design, fabric complements, and colours are not their things, but even so, you want to make sure your sofa fits in with the rest of the furniture. If it’s the first piece of furniture you have bought, you want it to be easy to buy the rest. Leather generally blends in with everything. If you use fabric, solid colours like blue, navy, brown, or black have more colour complements than bright colours.
You can add cushions, pillows or even throws onto your sofa, especially if it gets chilly at night. If you have pets, consider getting a rug.
