The Man Cave.
A simple yet misunderstood idea, the beginning origins of the man cave can be traced back over centuries. Many famous men throughout history had their own versions of man caves: Thomas Jefferson had his study at Montecello, Ernest Hemingway had a writing room and even Winston Churchill would be seen with a brush in hand at his very own art studio.
For a long time, men have needed these solitary confines to take respite from the burdens and responsibilities of everyday life. Today, many men decorate spaces inside their homes or garages to give themselves this much-needed area. The décor often reflects the things that these men hold dearly: sports, games, music, television and many other items that pique their interest. Outfitting today’s man cave requires thought into the man himself, and we are here to help. Here are the things men need to make their man cave great:
Undoubtedly the centerpiece of almost any man cave, the kegerator is perfect for dispensing brand name or homemade brews to your friends during game days or just when you’re hanging out. Kegerators can be installed in a wet bar or run freestanding; either way you set them, the result is the same: delicious, cold draft beer.
One of the best tools for your man cave is the beverage refrigerator, which can easily hold all that a man needs to survive. Able to store drinks like sodas and beer, as well as some food items that can last in low temperatures, the beverage refrigerator is an integral necessity to make your man cave even manlier.
Something that is often overlooked in most man caves is an appropriate snacking machine. Men who forget this small but important detail generally have to leave the cave and head to the kitchen, which is a task that is unnecessary and avoidable if you stock your cave with essential foods and machines that can produce delicious snacks in little time.
Wine Cooler / Racking
Wine collecting, tasting and drinking have become hobbies and pastimes for many men throughout the ages, and today’s modern, refined man is no different. For those man caves with a cultured palate, wine coolers are perfect for keeping your reds and whites chilled to perfection, while wine racks help you to store your collection during the aging process.
If there is one thing men love eating more than steaks, it is a deep fried steak. Men have deep fried everything from Oreos to butter, and modern technology allows your man cave to be suited with the latest in food frying machinery. For game days or just snacks, you can be sure to deep fry anything you want when you want it.
