There is nothing more important for a man cave than purchasing the right chair. Chairs should be comfortable, fit into your space well, and have all of the features that you require for the activity you will be doing in this space. The best living room chairs aren’t always the best man cave chairs.
Some additional considerations are whether to get a single or double seat. If it is for entertainment or home theater, then dual seating is preferable. Some great chairs can fit three people or turn into a two-person with storage in the middle.
All chairs are designed differently. Some have heated massage, some have a 360 degree swivel, some are powerlifters, and some are designed for gaming. They do not all have the same purpose, which is something to be aware of when looking for furniture for your man cave.

Selecting the best chair for you
When considering a chair, consider how it will be used. Are you just going to be sitting in it while watching TV? Or will it be used for gaming?
Second, make a list of things that you would like it to have. Is lumbar support important? Is it all about comfort, or do you want it to add to your man cave décor?
Also, determine what your budget is. A good man cave chair will be the most important piece of furniture in the room, but everyone has a budget.
Leather seating will cost more than fabric. However, it will probably last longer, it’s a comfort and style combo, and spills are easy to recover from. If real leather is out of your budget, you might want to consider faux leather.
You also need to consider what your height and weight are when purchasing the perfect man cave chair. While most will probably be able to handle your weight, not all can adjust to someone taller. When purchasing online, make sure that it fits.
