The first step in creating your very own ‘man cave’ in the home lies in convincing your partner that this is really the best use of the attic/basement/spare room. If you can swing that one then everything else should seem like plain sailing in comparison – with the next step being to decorate it. You don’t want to go overboard here, as it’s not likely that either you or your mates will spend hours wandering around it admiring the sense of light and space.

The table would also come in handy for games such as blackjacks and craps, so it would be a great addition.
