The Top Five Man Cave Must-Haves

ORANGE, Conn. (WTNH) — Having your very own man cave is just about every guy’s dream come true.

“I think guys are just in love with the idea of having their own space, and also a place they can just go and relax, watch the big game on a Sunday, have a couple buddies over,” said Jeff Heitmann, owner of Porch & Patio in Orange, Conn.

Heitmann says there are five items every man cave should have. Number one?

“Well the first item that I would start with in my man cave would be the pool table,” Heitmann explained. “Every guy is going to want that centerpiece for the room.”

From cue sticks to racks, Porch & Patio has just about every accessory you could need. Plus, they can customize your pool table to suit your taste and budget.

“We can do a lot of different variations in styles and designs with the pool table as well,” Heitmann said.

Man cave must-have number two?

“The wow factor for any man cave would have to be the bar,” Heitmann said. “To have your own bar in your house I think is mostly every guy’s dream.”

At Porch & Patio, you can create a custom bar that’s sure to impress your friends.

“We can do many different types of woods, many different types of designs, different colors of leather and things along those lines,” Heitmann explained.

And what man cave would be complete without lighting? That’s Heitmann’s must-have number three. Whether you’re looking for a neon light to jazz up your bar, or one to put over your pool table, Porch & Patio has you covered.

Man cave must have number four?

“A spectator chair is a nice accessory piece — a nice chair to go along with the pool table,” Heitmann said. “When your friend is taking his shot, his turn, it’s a nice place to just sit back and relax. We actually have ones that recline, hold your drink, hold your pool cue.”

Last but not least, man cave must-have number five is bubble hockey.

“You always had that one friend in your neighborhood that had maybe one of these,” Heitmann recalled. “It’s loud. It’s quick paced and I think you’ll have a lot of fun playing with it.”

So now that you’ve got the list of the top five man cave must-haves, it’s time to head to Porch & Patio to start creating yours. For more information, visit
