If you’re tired of your living room turning into a sports venue every weekend maybe it’s time to do something about it! With a bit of paint, elbow grease, and ingenuity you can turn a spare room into a man cave and move the team there whenever there’s a big game. Here are some tips for doing just that.
First of all, if you don’t have a spare room get creative. A basement or garage can work just as well, you’ll just need to add insulation and perhaps paneling. The main idea is to have a big enough space for an extra sofa and a chair or two because the only other furniture you’ll need is side tables and a TV. Of course, you’ll want to add some team decorations when you’re done, and a trip to the local fabric store or a visit to NFL Shop can take care of the decoration details!
First of all, empty the room. Then you’re free to paint the walls the color of your choice; either team colors or a neutral shade you can later decorate. The main idea is to have a clean slate and add details as you go.
For furniture, as mentioned above you’ll just need basic seating. A dorm fridge is a good addition and in a pinch can be used to hold the TV. Ideally you’ll want to mount the TV on the wall though so it’s easy to see from every seat.
If you have kids or teens you might want to get a couple of team beanbag chairs; if your favorite fan likes to entertain you can add a bar and stools. With a NFL Shop coupon you can add throws, glasses, and wall décor; if you follow more than one team you can dedicate one wall to each team.
As a bonus, if your kids participate in sports your man cave is the perfect place to display their trophies. That way they’ll feel like one of the gang when it comes to game day!
