Yep, the Man Cave is the most sacred room in the house. It’s the room you watch the big games in from your best recliner, hopefully on a wall-sized television screen. This spot is all about comfort, enjoyment, alone-time, camaraderie. It’s the MAN CAVE. Of course, some Man Caves serve multi-purposes: manly Man Cave on Monday Night Football nights, family theater room on Friday and Saturday evenings, and kids play-room when they have friends over… Either way, it’s a sacred room and meant for relaxation and fun.
That said, a successful Man Cave works well when it has the right window treatments in Wynnewood, PA. So, before your next big game day, steal a few of these important décor and window treatment ideas from the experts here at Blinds & Drapery Showroom!
- Cozy is the goal
The #1 rule for an effective Man Cave (or theater room) is that it must be cozy; literally, warm and cozy. You aren’t on the field cheering the game on with a big parka and scarf wrapped around you—you’re in your own home! You should not need to bundle up or pile on the blankets. Coziness starts with your windows. Do you have real treatments on them or are you counting on cheap mini blinds to keep out the cold? Consider plantation shutters from B&D. These help insulate your home better than any treatment on the market! The best part? They pair perfectly with curtains or drapes in your team colors!
- Keep it quiet…
The outside noise, that it. Your Man Cave is meant for cheers and loud referee calls, minus the traffic and construction and sirens going on outside. Plantation shutters help to keep the distracting noises from outside out and your excited voices and loud game/movie sounds So, if you know you are prone to getting a bit boisterous with your buddies during the playoffs—noise control is a must.
- Control the light
You don’t want glares on the television or reflections from poorly-placed lights in your Man Cave. Plantation shutters will keep the sunlight out, when needed. Also look into recess lighting and dimmers to maintain uninterrupted game/movie time.
A man Cave isn’t a Man Cave without some sport-like activity. A dartboard, chess table, poker set, and/or a pool table is a fantastic addition to your space—and, the whole family can enjoy these together, too! What about a vintage popcorn machine or a few bowls filled with your favorite guilty pleasure (chocolates, candies, candied nuts…)? Now, B&D can’t help you with this, but we know a good décor feature when we see one!
