The five essential items for your mancave

You want to put together a mancave? Your own personal sanctuary where you can retreat from the worries of the world. And if you are going to the trouble of creating a room like this you should make it really special.

Here are the essential items you’ll need in there.


There are recliners, and then there are electric recliners.

What’s the point in skimping on the piece of furniture you will be spending the most time using while inside your mancave.

Having an electric recliner adds a touch of luxury to the room.

It’s something people only get to experience by paying top dollar to watch a Gold Class session of a movie.

Whether you’re watching movies, binging TV shows or your favourite sport – it’s important to be comfortable and an electric recliner can help you.


Who doesn’t love a snack when you’re watching a movie or watching the game?

Having a little storage area to keep your snacks close at hand is a great way to go.

So you don’t go thirsty, another idea would be to buy a small bar fridge that can be filled with your favourite drink – to relax while watching TV and to wash down the snacks you have so carefully stored.


A lot of man caves can double as a games room, if you’ve got room for a pool table or a pinball machine, or a home theatre you can watch the latest movies in high-quality.

To decorate the room, we recommend framing a few cool movie posters to add to that cinema feel.

That’s what we did – our posters include Star Wars The Force Awakens and the original Rocky.

If you are a sports or music fan, the posters of your heroes and favourite band members can also decorate your wall.

If you like collecting memorabilia, the mancave is the ideal place to put it.

You might have autographed sporting jerseys, an original or replica film prop and other exciting collectables.

In our case we’ve got plenty of Star Wars merch including replica lightsabers, life-size Star Wars characters, framed autographed pictures and other recognisable movie items like a replica of the Grays Sports Almanac from Back to the Future Part Two.


A mancave is a great place to show off whatever it is you collect.

If you’re movie lover then you should proudly display your entire collection.

There is something about seeing a healthy movie collection in this age of Netflix.

One thing about your discs, they will always give you a repeatable high-quality experience – especially if you’re watching 4K.

Something you don’t get from Netflix if you have a poor or inconsistent broadband connection.


Your motto in your mancave should be “go big or go home” and that phrase couldn’t be more applicable than when we’re talking about televisions.

The Hisense Series 9 TV is available in either 65-inch or 75-inch models with both offering an amazing viewing experience.

It’s got you covered no matter what you want to do.

If you want a kickback and watch a movie or Netflix – there is actually a dedicated Netflix button that will take you directly to the app.

If you want to watch a movie on disk, the TVs menu system is simple enough to find your source and start playing.

If watching sport is more your speed, you’ll be pleased to know there is a football/sport picture mode that optimises the refresh rate of the TV so all the action is smooth and without judder.

If you prefer to be gaming, the Hisense’s Series 9 has also got your back with a game mode that will reduce lag and make gameplay really responsive.
