Watching football with friends is one of the great joys of adult life, but when you have to do it in the living room with your kids (and significant other) tripping over you, walking in front of the screen and generally driving you crazy … well, some of the enjoyment just melts away. Even if you don’t have a lot of space for a man cave, as long as you have a wall for a room and a comfy chair or couch, you’ve got the basics! Get ready to take your sports room to the next level with these cool tips.
Officially Licensed Paint
Having just the right shade and sheen of paint for your team is everything, and when you use Atlanta Painting Company you can be sure that we have the exact NFL- and NCAA-approved team colors. It couldn’t be easier to get started — just let us know which team you live to cheer for and we’ll do the rest! Having a solid start with your man cave is great, and paint will certainly do that for you. However, you want to make it as comfortable as possible so you can enjoy the game from the comfort of your own home instead of trekking to someone else’s basement for viewing with friends.
Getting the right size television is step one (obviously!), but seating is every bit as important. As you’re planning your seating, be sure that there is an uninterrupted view of the TV from every direction or you’re going to have people scooting around their chairs to get a good viewing angle. Inexpensive seating is likely best, as it can be difficult to stay focused on keeping your beverage upright when your team scores a massive touchdown or extra points in OT. Go for something that can be easily wiped clean.
Framed football cards, jerseys, helmets and more will help set the tone for your team’s success, because it’s all about you as the fan, right?!? Just the right decorations can help your man cave be the place to be for your friends. Autographed collectibles are great as long as they’re not getting in the way of the main event. Wall hangings and souvenirs are great options, but try to limit the clutter or you’re going to be spending your viewing time cleaning instead of enjoying yourself! Pop a dart board on the wall to take out excess aggression when your team isn’t doing as well as you would like.
Perhaps one of the most important parts of the football watching experience is the beverages. A glass-front fridge leaves you room to promote your team, and you can sip out of massive mugs with your team’s logo on them to really add to the authentic feel of the adventure. There’s nothing quite like adding the clink of glasses to the shouting and cheers when your team wins big.
