Editorial Create the Ultimate Dad Cave

Posted on 20 August by Lakeside Joondalup

Create the ultimate zone for your Dad!

For those of us who are choosing to stay home this Father’s Day, and still looking for something fun to do for Dad, why not create the ultimate Dad Cave!

It’s a great way to make him feel extra special, particularly if you need to stay local this year. Simply select an appropriate location in the home, or if weather permits, set one up outside in the backyard.

Here are some of our suggestions to create the perfect place to escape and hang out with dad or treat him to some well-deserved ‘Dad Time’!

Comfort & Theme is Key

Dad’s space will have to be comfortable, so if you can, move his favourite chair to the room or set up plenty of pillows, blankets and even good old bean bags to lounge around in. For extra fun if the kids are joining, why not create an indoor fort! You could also theme the space based on dad’s interests and his personality – think sporting, movies, outdoor, technology, art, music, the possibilities to decorate the space are endless! For a special touch, maybe add a piece of artwork or special messages from the kids. Remember to also consider storage if the space ends up used being longer term.

Make it Fun!

A Dad Cave isn’t complete without plenty of entertainment! Bring out the television, board games, gaming system, favourite books, music and any other activities that you might like to do as a family. Dad may also want to include some of his favourites for the times where he’s on his own and putting his feet up. Games World has you covered!

For our tech dads, this space is also perfect to test and try the latest gadgets and easy to install activities such as pool tables, ping pong or retro arcade gaming would also work a treat!

Other possible entertainment ideas include family game or movie nights, gaming tournaments, dinner or a picnic in the Dad Cave or even a dance party! Grab what you need from JB HiFi!

Dad’s Menu

Pick out all of dad’s favourites and make sure they’re well stocked – think fun snacks, drinks and perhaps lunch or dinner ideas for the times when you’re hanging out as a family. Candy Alley and Farmer Jack's has all you need. For ultimate convenience, order ahead and collect or have delivered from his favourite restaurant or café. Try 2 Fat Indians or Coco Cubano.

What to Wear

A Dad Cave is all about comfort, so pyjamas and loungewear are the perfect attire! Treat dad to a brand new pair so he’s feeling relaxed head to toe. Peter Alexander only stocks the best!
