Whether it is to relax after a long day of work, getting some alone time, or having a space to share with your friends, a man cave is worth the investment and can bring a lot of satisfaction into one’s life. To build the ultimate man cave, it is crucial to invest money into having a home theater. Most of us cannot imagine a man cave without a large television with entertainment features, which is why it is important to understand the current trends in technology.
The Dimensions of the Cave
Before beginning the project, you must have a good understanding of the room’s dimensions. The distance from the screen to the seating area is one of the most important things to consider. If your man cave is on the smaller side, you might want to avoid an 85-inch television and settle for something in the 60 – 70-inch range. This makes it so you can enjoy all of the pixels without having to strain your neck or eyes. Before beginning the project, it is also important to determine if the project requires electrical work since the wiring and project will require some extra space.
The Seats in the Cave
The seating arrangement can then be focused on once the distancing is figured out. Most man caves have a general rule of there being an open seating plan that fills unused space. If you are dealing with a large room, placing seats in the middle can ruin the feeling of a cave and gives it a “just another room in the house” vibe. To prevent this from happening, the seats should be placed against the walls. Storage containers can also be used to fill the open areas and make the room more compact. This open seating arrangement gives the man cave a comfortable place to relax in and helps form a connection with those around you.
As we have mentioned, the size of the TV is dependent on the dimensions of the room. It is also wise to install a high-quality sound system that adjusts to the amount of space. The man cave is a great place to install a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system. However, it will take time to determine the ideal location for them and how you will run the speaker wires if they are not wireless. We strongly recommend that the TV has smart features, such as Amazon’s Fire TV, where you will have access to tens of thousands of channels along with streaming services like Netflix, and Amazon Prime.
