During football season, a man cave is used for one thing, and one thing only, and that’s for watching football. The average armchair quarterback’s media room, recreation room, or game room likely has some essentials in it already, like a recliner, mini fridge, and bar stools. Maybe you even have a dart board or billiards table for taking a breather to shoot a game of pool during halftime. But this year, it’s time to move your man cave from the regular season to the playoffs with something more. From watching multiple games at once, to lighting that truly sets the tone for game day, we have man cave ideas that you’ve been dreaming about ever since you watched your first Super Bowl in your old college roommate’s living room that didn’t even have a big screen TV!
Use a projector to bring the players to life.
Feel like you’re actually in the stadium, cheering from the sidelines by projecting the game onto a screen. We can also set your man cave up with a projector and two TVs so you can have the main football game on in the center while watching other games or sports at the same time. Not only can you root for your team, but you can cheer on other conferences or leagues, or, of course, keep an eye on your division rivals.
Video walls take watching multiple football games a step further.
Say goodbye to channel surfing and missing the big plays, and put and end to recording a second game to watch later, only to have someone text you and unwanted score update. A video wall typically consists of four TVs squeezed together to look like they are one big screen TV. We can allow you to program it to have all four TV screens show one large image, or you can change it to play a different game on each individual screen. This means that if you don’t want to watch your team’s game on one big screen, you can watch either four different channels on four screens, or even two games taking up two screens each. There are many options for how we place the TVs for video walls, ensuring that you can watch the sports you want, how you want. No more waiting for highlights to see who won or how your playoff pools or Fantasy Football players did. You get all the action and excitement live and feel like you are in the stands at every stadium at once.
Light the way with your football team’s colors.
Are you wearing your team’s colors while you watch? Shouldn’t the whole room be a shrine to your favorite team? Further enhance your man cave for watching the football game with theater lighting and proper ceiling light fixtures. Our team can install theater seats that actually have LED lights underneath them, so they light up the walkways or steps, just like in a movie theater. We can even add ceiling track lighting and trim with lights inside that go around the room. Of course, these lights can be whatever color pattern you want, such as your team’s colors, and we can even program these lights to flicker your team’s colors after they score a touchdown.
Automatically draw the shades and show your team spirit.
In football, you know that winning a Championship is all about details. When you’re watching the big game, the last thing you need is a glare on the screen—even the smallest one can bother you like a mosquito buzzing in your ear while you try to sleep. Ensure that everyone has a clear view of all the action with motorized blackout shades. At the touch of a button, you can lower the shades and black out the room, getting rid of that glare once and for all. Plus, when drawing the shades reveals a huge logo of your team, you will be surrounded by team spirit that will make you be the envy of the neighborhood.
