Firm Belief:  Everyone needs a personal space to call their own...a room or area in the house where they can be away from their spouse, kids, aunt, mother-in-law, or what have you just to think and have some alone time..or if you so choose, to have a friend over to speak about common interests or hobbies away from those uninterested parties. 


It's essential to one's well-being!  In this instance, we will be talking about the "man of the house" and his must-haves/essentials for the particular space that's all his own.  THE MAN CAVE.



As with most rooms in the house, and especially this particular one, we should start with comfort. 


After all, a man needs to be able to relax ... let's talk chairs ... particularly chair/ottoman combos and great recliners.  Some of the best ones for easy, no fuss comfort along with a rugged style would have a worn or distressed look and feel.  


Worn leather recliners are great for this, ones with studded nailheads along the seams for a great, masculine finish or without if you choose.  Recliners such as The "FLAGSTAFF" by flexsteel or the "SADDLE", that has a great, manly burgundy hue to it should fit the bill.


Or to go with something more sophisticated, a nice grey flannel or printed upholstery may be more to one's liking.  Extra bonus for ones with added on amenities such as cup holders to place safely that imported beer or glass of scotch while pondering life's questions.


 Or one can go with more simple yet comfortable seating arrangements such as a classic club chair that's is tufted on the back facing.  Check out the "TUFTED BOMBER" chair and ottoman combo that has that same worn, unpretentious look to it or the upholstered "TUFTED CLUB" for a cleaner look.


If your man cave has the room for it, a good sectional or living room set, standard or reclining, can be great also or along with a solitary recliner to stretch out on or for extra seating when you have buddies over for poker night.  There are so many to choose from in various colors that would suit any man's taste...brown, sand, burgundy, forest green, or deep tan or even black...just pick the right one for essential comfort.


Of course, entertainment consoles is another must, ones that not only holds a large screen TV, but has areas for your xbox and cable box along with cabinets to hold whatever else you might need for your entertainment purposes down there. 


Ones such as the "URBAN LODGE" console totally has the look and feel of ruggedness about it...or again, if you choose, something more sleek.  the look of this piece should coordinate with the look and tone of your seating furniture to create a consistently coordinated and stylish area.



Lastly, what's a man cave without a bar and bar stools??  Whether youre alone and want to escape into your cave to enjoy a quiet glass of single malt after a hard day at work or having the guys over for shots, a good, fully stocked of course, bar/liquor cabinet is the finishing touch for your in-house getaway. 


Check out the whimsical yet rustic "CELEBRATE" bar or the sleek, mirrored "SMOKE & MIRRORS" drink cart for this last essential piece.





Hope you create and enjoy a well-furnished, comfortable man cave!
