Everyone needs a place to retreat to from time to time. A man cave is an ultimate retreat for a gentleman of leisure. Unfortunately, not everyone has space for a man cave in their home. Good news! There are other options for you. One unconventional but brilliant solution is renting out a storage unit and making it the ultimate man cave. Below we’ve listed some of the man cave essentials!
This is absolutely the most essential part of your man cave. Make sure there are electrical outlets to plug electronics into. Having a TV in your man cave will allow you to play video games or watch your favorite films. This will be an excellent way to kick back and relax in your impressive man cave!
Ice cold beverages are a must in your man cave. When you’re hanging out alone or with friends, you want to make sure that you always have drinks on hand. Make sure that you find a storage unit that has electrical outlets so that you can bring a refrigerator for beverage cooling and snacks.
If you plan on sharing the space with friends, a pool table is a great investment. You’ll have a lot of fun playing a couple of games of pool in the solitude of the storage unit. It’s a fun laid back activity that is the perfect fit for your storage unit man cave!
No good man cave has blank walls. The walls of your man cave are a canvas upon which to pay homage to your favorite sports teams. Make sure that you bring command strips or something similar so that, when you’re hanging your memorabilia, you don’t damage the walls of the storage unit. Fill the space with whatever makes you feel comfortable and at home. That is the point of this whole project after all!
Of course, you’re going to need comfortable seating. Maybe consider bringing in a big, comfy couch and perhaps a couple of chairs. A table might even be a good idea if you think you might ever host a poker night in your man cave. Think through the kinds of activities you want to do in your man cave and plan your seating arrangement appropriately.
If you’re going to be spending time in your storage unit, you’ll want to make sure you can control the temperature. Having a climate controlled storage unit allows you to control both temperature and humidity to assure that you’re always comfortable in your man cave.
