Creating the Perfect Man Cave or Ladies Lounge
February 14, 2013 § Leave a comment
Whether you call it a man cave or a ladies lounge, every home needs a room where friends can get together to watch sports, play games or just hang out. Many people focus on the design of the room to achieve a casual feel. However, the foundation of a comfortable room is comfortable furniture.
Reclining furniture has come a long way. In fact, new lines from furniture stores in MA and RI ensure that no one ever has to compromise comfort with style. Couches and chairs that are soft and adjustable will invite guests to stay for hours. Leather is a great option for man caves because it has a rugged look, but is also easy to clean. Sophisticated canvas chairs come in a wider range of colors, which makes them a great option for a ladies lounge in any style.
The room should also be ready for entertaining. A bar can hold beverages, snacks and glasses so that watching the game doesn’t have to be interrupted by trips to the kitchen. Bars can also store items like decks of cards and poker chips or a selection of books and magazines. Keeping these items out of sight will make an entertainment room looking neater and cleaner without a lot of extra effort.
For a room that truly feels like a sanctuary, consider a fireplace. Electric fireplaces don’t require the effort of traditional fireplaces, but they still provide the ambiance and coziness of a roaring fire. A fireplace in a man cave can give the room a rugged feel, while a ladies lounge will seem more cozy and welcoming.
Once a man cave or lounge has been outfitted with the basics in RI and MA furniture, then it’s time to build up the room’s decor. Building off of the foundation of comfortable furniture and enjoyable amenities, consider adding a lot of smaller tables or shelves to make entertaining easier. Lots of smaller table lamps will make it easier to adjust to level of light in the room from soft and romantic to bright and clear. Finally, add items like artwork or sports memorabilia to set the theme and mood of the room.
Whether a den or lounge is intended as a place to watch sports, connect with friends or simply spend some time alone to unwind, comfortable furniture mixed with personal style will create the ultimate sanctuary. Visit Cardi’s Furniture today to start outfitting your man cave or ladies lounge.
