Ten Must Have Man Cave Accessories You Have to Own
Did you know that man caves have been a ‘thing’ for as long as 800,000 years! Manthropologists think that men built small enclosures just to hang out with other males- which is effectively what a man cave is in today’s terms!
So, it’s not surprising that most guys want one, it’s virtually in their DNA.
This begs the question what do you need to create the perfect man cave?
Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. During this blog post, we’re going to list our favorite man cave accessories. All of which are necessary for creating the perfect man pad!
Let’s dive in.
1.) A Mini Fridge
The man cave aims to create an environment where you can completely relax and unwind.
This means you’ll need a place to stash your beer and keep it cold. There’s nothing worse than having to leave the comfort of your den to go and get a drink.
There’s a simple solution to this problem, and it’s called the mini fridge.
This piece of kit is especially essential for when you have your bros over!
2.) Novelty Coffee Tables
In our experience, the best man caves have some kind of novelty coffee table.
We especially love ones that feature whiskey barrels, old kegs, or wine crates (pretty much anything related to alcohol!)
The more authentic, the better. So, try and source a table made from recycled whiskey barrels.
This accessory usually gives a rugged yet classy slant to your den.
3.) Beer Cap Map
There’s nothing better than sampling beers from across the globe.
What better way to cherish these delicacies than by saving your beer caps and displaying them on a specially designed map.
We encourage you to proudly display them on the wall so you and your mates can marvel at your beer drinking experience.
You can opt for either a state or world map depending on how adventurous you’re feeling!
4.) A Decent TV
Most men (especially those living in a household of women) struggle to tune into their favorite TV programs- especially when it comes to sports!
The man cave is a perfect place to chill out on a Sunday afternoon and watch football.
Naturally, when it comes to TV’s, size matters. The bigger, the better. There’s nothing better than a sizeable flat screen TV for watching sports or your favorite movies.
Then, once you’ve got that sorted, all you need to do is grab a bowl of popcorn, a can of beer, and kick back and relax.
5.) Rack and Pour Liquor Dispensers
Do you want to enjoy the swank of going to a high-class bar, without having to queue for ages and spend a bomb?
If so, you need a rack and pour liquor dispenser! It’s the perfect way to store your liquor in a way that’s tidy and accessible- win-win!

6.) Movie Posters
If the walls of your man cave are looking a bit bare, then movie posters are the perfect solution.
A poster of your favorite action movie is a great way to round off your hideaway. Popular choices include The Godfather, Bad Boys, Blues Brothers, etc.
Having a small tribute to your favorite film is an excellent way of personalizing your space. You want your den to reflect the ‘real you’.
Not only is this an area for you to relax and unwind but it’s also a perfect opportunity for you to express yourself.
After all, it’s the only room in the house where you have complete control. So, make the most of it!
7.) Pool Table
Sometimes (albeit rarely) a TV just doesn’t cut it when it comes to entertainment. A man cave is a perfect place for a pool table- in fact, it’s essential.
It screams class, and it’s an excellent sport to help you relax and unwind after a long days work.
Naturally, you and the lads can still chill out and watch football. However, a pool table really rounds off the room- and has done for decades. It’s always a welcome addition!
8.) Darts Board
On a similar note, a darts board is ideal for adding a bit of fun and activity to this special room.
Debatably, this is the most fun out of all of the man cave accessories.
It’s a great accessory for when you have guests over because let’s face it; there’s nothing better than a good old-fashioned darts tournament.
Let the games begin!
Let’s circle back to point number four. Watching TV is a massive part of what makes a man cave. However, there’s no point having a separate space for this if you’re not comfortable.
Cue, the reclining chair. Arguably, the most important out of all of the man cave accessories.
Admittedly, not all dudes enjoy watching TV. However, this accessory is by no means limited to just that.
It’s ideal for chilling out with a good book, taking calls from clients, or just taking a much-needed nap!
10.) Sports Memorabilia
This one is for all the sports fans out there.
If your man cave aims to provide a place for you to watch sports (in peace), then we recommend adorning your den with some kind of sports memorabilia.
There’s a high chance you already have a couple of pieces lying around.
So, make your partners day by removing it from where they can see it and put them where they belong- in the man cave.
