How to Design the Ultimate Man Cave
Crown Can Design a Media Room for the Ultimate Entertainment Experience
Everyone should have his or her own special space for fun and relaxation. A “man cave” is a dedicated den where guys can just hang out, play games, and get away from the stresses of life with some entertainment. But exactly how do you create this space in your Allen, Texas home? Here are some design ideas to get you started. We think it’s important for you to know exactly what’s entailed in creating the man cave of your dreams.
What is the focal point of the room?
The first step is determining what the main purpose of the room is. Will you be mainly watching movies or playing games? Is this a space for entertaining guests, or is it a more private room just for yourself and family? If you’ll be using the room for playing games, you could make a large flat-screen TV the focal point and place plenty of seating around it, and then put a pool table on the other side of the room with a bar and dining area for enjoying drinks and snacks. If you’ll be using the room for listening to music, you could place a nice set of speakers near some comfy chairs and the fireplace.
What is the theme?
Your man cave can be darker, warm and inviting, or lighter and bright and energizing. If you have a favorite sports team, like the Dallas Cowboys, you could use the team colors as the theme and hang sports memorabilia on the walls. Crown can even install custom theater seats in any color you choose so they match the theme. Or if you want to keep it casual, you could place a sofa and bean bags in front of the large screen, but customize the framing around the TV so it ties into the colors and décor. We have a CNC machine that can cut any design or shape. Our team has the ability to cut out logos and designs, build custom entertainment center furniture or encasings to make all of the technology in the room look super stylish.
Which controls are the most important?
Usually the remote is the most important control in the room. But which channels or games do you use frequently that need to be the most prominent? With a Control4 system, you can create a scene that will set up the entire room for your favorite activities. For example, if you watch sports games on Sunday afternoons, you could create a scene called “Sunday Sports” that turns on ESPN, adjusts the thermostat to a comfortable degree, dims the lights down, lowers the solar shades, and turns on the speakers. If you want to focus a scene on entertaining guests, you could call it “Game Night” and then make sure your favorite games are on a playlist, like Halo, Madden, or Mario Kart. Then create a music playlist for shooting some pool or playing cards. Every scene you save can be called up again in an instant using the Control4 remote, touch screen, or on a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet. We know you’ll have tons of fun in your very own man cave with custom audio video controls by Crown.
