6 Items You Should Have when Decorating a Man Cave – Have you ever heard about man cave. What do you think it looks like?

A place where men can hang out, play some pool, and just have fun with their friends. That’s what I thought before I did some research…

Turns out, the game room is an important part of a man’s life and culture.

And if you’re going to spend time in your man cave and not just use it as storage for old things that don’t fit in your house anymore (like my husband does), then there are some things about decorating a man cave that women should know!

6 Items You Should Have when Decorating a Man Cave

Card table

A card table is a versatile piece of furniture. It can be used for poker, blackjack and other card games.

A card table also makes an excellent makeshift bar. With a few bottles of beer, some glasses and some ice you’re good to go!

The same goes for dinner; this inexpensive piece of furniture can be used as your dining room table or desk when you don’t want to eat off the floor (which happens occasionally).

A card table isn’t just limited to its intended use: it’s also great for playing board games like Monopoly or Risk, as well as other tabletop games such as chess or checkers.

Dart board

A dart board is a great addition to your man cave. A dart board makes it easy for you and your family members to play games in the comfort of your home, with no need for a trip to the bar.

Darts can be played by one or more people, making it fun for everyone. This game is also great because it encourages communication; players must talk about their strategy before taking their turns.

TV lounge

A TV is a must-have for any man cave. The size, style and brand of TV you choose will depend on your budget and personal tastes.

The most important thing is that it’s big enough to see from across the room—and if you have multiple guests over, they can all watch comfortably while sitting on the floor or standing up.

Bar cart

Bar carts are a great way to display your favorite bottles of liquor and mixers, as well as store any other bar accessories you may have.

They can be purchased at most home stores and furniture shops, but if you’re looking for more of a do-it-yourself project, here’s how to build one yourself:

  • Start by cutting the legs off an old table. Make sure you leave enough room so that it will still fit in your game room (this usually depends on the size of your television).
  • Use a saw to cut pieces out of some 2×4 boards. Assemble them into a rectangle with diagonal braces on either side. Attach these pieces together using wood screws and finish nails (if you want them looking professional).
  • Cut plywood sheets into rectangles that are slightly larger than the tabletop surface area; this will be what covers up the top when it’s all put together! Screw these down onto both sides of your open-air box frame so they’re seated well but not too tight or loose. Now place another piece overtop of those two layers—this will serve as an extra “covering” for your finished product!

Wall-mounted bottle opener

The wall-mounted bottle opener is a great way to open bottles, especially when you have limited space.

This is because it takes up very little space and can be mounted anywhere on the wall. It’s easy to use and looks great in any man cave!

Foosball Table

Buy a foosball table. It’s an easy way to add a little bit of fun and competition to your game room.

And the best part is that you can play it by yourself! Just set up your team against yourself and see who wins!


We hope you’ve enjoyed this list of ideas for man cave items.

Whether it’s your basement or a spare room, there are many ways to make the space more comfortable and convenient for hanging out with friends.

You don’t need any special skills or equipment—just some DIY know-how, some inspiration from our list (and maybe a little help from us), and an open mind!

The best part about creating your own man cave is being able to express yourself through what goes into it: whether that’s sports memorabilia or other personal touches like photos from past vacations, every piece adds personality and tells a story about who lives here.
