How to create a fantastic man cave on a budget – words Alan Woods

Man Cave, The Dude Den, Husband’s Hideout, whatever creative name you decide to call it, it’s a space dedicated to you and your hobbies.

It should be a place you want to show off to your mates which means it needs to be filled with awesome designs and envy-inducing gadgets to get people talking.

First things first, since there’s probably a high chance you might be sleeping in there, whether planned or otherwise, you should definitely invest in a sofa bed – and not one of those flimsy futon’s you’d sleep on at college. You’ll find a range of undeniably comfortable sofa beds from Arlo & Jacob here.

A pool table is the holy grail of man cave paraphernalia. Not only can you brush-up on your own skills but you can play host to weekly game nights. Fusion Tables have a range of excellently designed convertible pool tables. It has to be one of the ultimate man cave accessories.
