Getting the right blinds for a man cave
You swing your legs over your recliner throne and kick your shoes off without a care where they land. Steve passes you an ice cold beer. You clink your glasses. The familiar sound of snooker balls clacking into one another is swiftly followed by a triumphant roar. You turn your head. Paul’s victory dance is usually an eyesore, but in your new, personalised man cave you can’t help but chuckle at his flailing limbs. He bounces over to the sofa with John trailing not far behind. You all settle down, legs spread out in every direction, but eyes all firmly focused on one thing: The crème de la crème – the 45 inch 4K Ultra High Definition gloss black bezelless TV. As you reach for the remote, you can’t help but feel a little smug. You’ve created a man cave masterpiece; a phenomena of interior masculinity. You press the power button on the remote. The TV flicks on. Game time.
But that’s when you see it.
A bead of sweat trickles down your forehead. Steve, Paul and John turn to you with a condemning look. You panic, eyes darting around the room, frantically trying to find an explanation, but the world around you has become blurry and foreign. You feel your heart pounding in your chest like a trapped animal desperate to escape. You attempt to take a deep breath but only muster a feeble gasp. The walls feel like they’re slowly enclosing – smaller and smaller and smaller. There’s nowhere to turn. Nowhere to run.
And that’s when it hits you.
You forgot to buy blinds for your man cave windows.
At Kingston Blinds, we understand the importance of your man cave, and that every detail matters. That’s why we’ve developed the following guide, ensuring you obtain the best blinds for your man cave.
Blackout blinds are aptly named as such because they prevent natural light from entering the room. Although they may not completely block out all light, blackout blinds will prevent any glare appearing on screens – allowing you to enjoy your movies and sports in the best quality.
Another benefit of blackout blinds is that they provide total privacy. The opaque fabric covers your windows in their entirety, and prevents any prying eyes from peering into your man cave. With blackout blinds you can feel fully relaxed and enjoy your personal space in peace.
The neon signs and artificial lights scattered around your man cave may look cool, but the utility bill they rack up is no joke. Save yourself a little money by installing cellular honeycomb blinds. Cellular blinds are the best blinds on the market for insulation. Their unique honeycomb design traps air inside the folds, thereby blocking cold air from filling the room. The result is a warmer room and a saving on your energy bill – meaning you have a little more budget to spend on that lightsaber night light.
Picture this: you’ve come home from a long day at work. You’ve got your shoes off and your feet up. You’ve just managed to find the optimum level of comfort when you realise you haven’t got the blinds down.
Luckily, you’re now able to operate your blinds without needing to get up. Motorised blinds offer an unrivalled level of futuristic innovation by extending and retracting at the touch of a button. The remotely operated blinds come in a variety of colours to blend in seamlessly with your man cave design. With some blinds even operating via mobile phone or tablet, you’ll never need to get up to close your blinds again.
