The bachelor pad, man cave, manland, mantuary or man space – whatever you call it, has long been synonymous with tiny living quarters, disorder, clutter and outdated furniture.
In order to avoid this stereotype, you need to think about striking the right balance for your pad. It needs to be somewhere that’s optimal for both a guy’s night watching the football and for those times you want a quieter night, or are looking to invite the family round etc.
The perception that guys need not bother with interior design and can continue to live in their untidy floor stained havens is thankfully outdated. The modern bachelor pad is all about immaculate flair.
When it comes to striking the right balance, think about introducing some softness to calm the look against the hard edgy vibe of your space. Consider some of the most important things like your interior design style, colours, your preferences in terms of art and hobbies – and let these factors stand out in your home. Having a home that reflects the man living there is a great way to showcase your personality and give your home a welcoming feel.
If you’re unsure about what will work with the rest of your ambiance, then have no fear – we’re one step ahead of you!
The beauty about the design of the system means that anything from bookcases to cabinets, to shelving can be constructed to fit almost any space in your home – under slanted ceilings, into tight alcoves and even overhead where floor space is at a premium. The colour of the Shelfstore system is also perfect to align with what’s on trend in the décor and DIY space and is the ideal solution for that contemporary and stylish finish for your pad.
It’s true what they say – that the place you live tells a story about you. So start writing your story and make your bachelor pad a place that’s welcoming to everyone.
