Have you ever dreamed of transforming your home into the ultimate bachelor pad? Well, thanks to this post, now you no longer have to dream, because we’re going to show you how to do just exactly that!
Keep Everything Fresh
We’d never dream of stereotyping men in any way, but even we admit that there are some who could do with a little helping hand in the house cleaning department. Now we’re not saying that you should put on a pair of rubber gloves and an apron. But make sure that everything is tidy and smells fresh and clean. After all a smelly and untidy house isn’t going to impress your female friends any more than it will your male ones.
No self-respecting bachelor pad would be complete without lots of gadgets and high-tech features. This is as much for entertainment as it is about the aesthetics. You don’t have to worry if you don’t have a fortune to spend. But a good sound system, and at least one games console are absolute must-haves.
Now when we say artwork, we’re not talking about Van Gogh or Michelangelo. But a few well-paced movie posters, for example, can make an equally bold statement. Try and find a print that’s original and expresses your personality. Don’t just opt for a typical ‘Scarface’ poster or photo of a sports car. Also, we advise that if you are over the age of 21 that you ensure that any artwork in your home is displayed in frames. Unless you want any potential love interests to mistake you for a teenager.
A Throne Fit for a King
We quite often refer to our own homes as being our fortress or our castle, so that automatically makes us the king! Every king needs a suitable throne, so make sure that you’ve got a chair that’s suited to long video game sessions, and watching endless hours of TV.
Avoid Overused Color Schemes
A mistake that many men make when decorating their home is by opting for color schemes that are either outdated or overused. So try and steer away from red and black, and opt instead for neutral colors, that are unlikely to go out of style. Plus, if ever you choose to move on from your home and let a 3 bed house in Harborne instead, having a neutral color scheme will make the property easier to sell.
Create Different Spaces for Different Purposes
Above all, you want your house to be functional and practical for your lifestyle. One way you can do this is by using rugs and different kinds of lighting in the various areas of your home. Creating different spaces in this way works particularly well in open-plan living spaces. You’ll find that by designating different parts of your living space to specific purposes, your whole house will function more efficiently.
We believe that every man on earth deserves to have a place that he can retreat to, and a space that he can call his own. So, just follow our amazingly simple tips to help you make the very best out of yours.
