Everyone has a hobby. Check out these key steps for man cave ideas if you’re addicted to gaming and technology!
Everyone is different and every person has their own tastes and activities they love the most. Just like bookworms have libraries and movie lovers have home theaters, gamers and tech addicts can have their own video game/technology rooms. Today, we will be giving you 6 essential tips to create the perfect man cave for geeks – guilty as charged!
1 – Comfort
Let’s be honest here. It’s a man cave and that means you’ll spend way too much time in there. Well, we can’t really blame you for that. But if you’re going to be sealed most of the time, you might as well spend it comfortably. You’ll need a good sofa, armchairs, soft pillows and carpets.
2 – Cooling
In an isolated room filled with technology, a lot of heat is bound to be generated. You will have to find a way of either let it escape the room or refrigerate the room itself. If you have windows, they should provide some much necessary ventilation. In any case, AC or fans are the best instruments to keep your man cave cool (temperature-wise, of course). But perhaps the most important aspect to consider is to choose a large room to install your man cave. The larger the room, the more heat will dissipate.
3 – Storage
A room for true gamers or tech geeks will be filled with all sorts of gadgets, merchandising and, of course, boxes! You don’t want these things to be spread all around in an untidy fashion. Be sure to get yourself plenty of shelves and cabinets. We all love a shelf filled with a collection of game boxes!
4 – Technology-friendly
No, we don’t mean you. The room itself has to be technology-friendly, meaning it has to prepared with all the essential tech companions you can find, such as adjustable TV stands, cable organizers, cooling pads, speakers, headsets, gaming chairs… you name it!
5 – Lighting
Gaming rooms are set up in spaces with little light coming through, so you might want adequate light fixtures around the room. That being said, be careful with the lighting you use, as light generates heat and you don’t want a room filled with technology to get too hot, as we’ve mentioned before. Also, gaming room ask for cool ambience lighting, so don’t forget about that!
6 – Nourishment
Admit it, you’ll spend so much time in there that you’ll eventually set up a fully equipped bar corner in it. Get your small fridge ready and perhaps even a water dispenser for quick access to water. A bar cart would be nice in order to just move your food closer to your preferred seating place.
