Well it’s that time of year again…. when men (and some women) start upgrading their smart TVs, overloading their refrigerators with every brand of beer imaginable, and placing their hot wing orders well in advance. Yup you guessed it, it’s Super Bowl time.
Super Bowl is a national American phenomenon. Donning their preferred team’s jerseys, football fans and wannabe football fans gather to watch a televised version of the best football game of the season (unless it’s a blowout), dine on pepperoni pizza and wings, and watch the wittiest commercials money can buy.
This year, the Philadelphia Eagles take on serial Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, and you can bet your bottom dollar that men everywhere are scurrying to get their man caves ready for primetime. But just because you’re a diehard Eagles fan, doesn’t mean you have to slap green paint on your walls and confine your artwork to pennants.
Creating an enviable man cave, starts with great materials, comfortable seating and a Super Bowl worthy TV. If space and plumbing allows, a kitchenette or full bar area make this room completely self-sufficient.
Today, I am spotlighting man caves that have transcended the theme-y vibe we have come to expect and made this environment classy and functional. Me and my wannabe football fan self would love to get caught in one of these man caves on Super Bowl night.
This man cave has all the fixings – a fully stocked bar, dark espresso moldings, a gorgeous stone wall in the background and some theatre chairs that say, “Come hither.” My only addition would be an additional area rug to combat all that sound that will be coming from ethos built-in speakers.
From those velvety black curtains to those sconces on the fireplace wall, this man cave screams luxury! And that rug is simply wowzers! I’m having a Lady Gaga moment over here!
Put me in a man cave like this and I would actually pay attention to the game instead of the commercials! And all those referees and their whistles would actually begin to mean something. Wait did you notice that those cushy seats are actually elevated on a carpeted floor? That’s ok, I noticed it for you. The only other thing I would need in this “I died and went to man cave heaven,” is an award winning mixologist asking me what I want to drink all night…
I love the dichotomy of light and dark in here. It isn’t your typical man cave but I would take it in a heartbeat!
Is your home ready for some football? Fortunately, you still have a few days to get your space ready to host! – Karina Jones
