Build the Ultimate Football Fan Cave This Season


With the start of football season right around the corner, there’s no better time than right now to take action to build the ultimate football fan cave. Whether you love the Seahawks or the Patriots, the Steelers or the Bears—not to mention the 200+ college football teams that will by vying for the national championship this year—here are some must-haves for constructing the ultimate room where you can watch the game in comfort, and that all of your friends will wish was theirs:

A Big Screen TV

It goes without saying that in order to bring the game home to you, you’ll need a screen of epic proportions on which to watch it. If you have the room, consider a high-quality projector—preferably one that displays in high definition—so that you don’t miss a single moment, referee call, or bead of sweat. And don’t forget the surround sound speakers to complete the total package, ensuring that you follow every play.

Football-Themed Ceiling Fans

When things get hot on the football field, you’ll want to make sure that you and your pals are staying cool. With that in mind, there’s no better way to beat the heat and show off your team spirit than with a football-themed ceiling fan from Ceiling Fan Designers. These ceiling fans are available with a variety of decorative themes featuring both NFL and NCAA football teams’ logos, ranging from Arizona to Washington, Alabama to Wisconsin respectively. They also offer great lighting (60 watt candelabra bulb) and come equipped with a 120 volt, three speed motor to help you find just the right temperature. If your fan cave is in a garage or basement that feels cooler than the Frozen Tundra at Lambeau Field, a winter-reverse air flow feature on our fans recirculates rising warm air to help keep you warm.

Food and Beverage Storage

While what’s happening on the field may be the most important part of the game, what you’re eating and drinking is a close second. Don’t disappoint your group of football fans by failing to be prepared with adequate snack and beverage storage; invest in a mini-fridge, mini-bar equipment, and serving space. Then, stock it up with fan-favorite football eats. Really want to go all out? Consider investing in plates, napkins, and utensils complete with your team’s name.

The Best Seats in the House

Your football fan cave wouldn’t be complete without great seats. Whether you want sofas or loveseats, cloth or leather, choose something that’s comfortable, roomy, and can fit the whole crew. Tip: go for something stain-proof or easily washable – when things get tense or your favorite player scores the winning touchdown, there’s a good chance of food or beverage spillage. If the game is being watched in a room with nice carpet, invest in a throw rug to put under a table and couch (to collect spills) that celebrates your favorite team.

Building the ultimate football fan cave this season takes some effort, but it’s worth it. To create the perfect football watching area in your house, a big screen TV, football-themed ceiling fan, food and beverage (storage), and great seats are all must-haves.
