5 Ideas For Masculine Spaces
Whether it’s a man cave or a bachelor’s pad, here are some decorating tips to make it stylish
Is your hubby planning to allot one room as his den? Or has a guy friend of yours just bought his own condo? Or do you feel you lean more to the masculine side of the decorating spectrum? Check out these tips that will elevate your space to more than just basic:
1. Provide comfy seating in your home theater.
If your private spot is a mini movie house at home, invest in cozy seating, like butter-soft leather chairs or recliners. Soundproof the room using upholstered wall panels and carpet floors. Choose neutral colors that will appeal to both men and women.
2. Let the room have its own style.
Give it its own look, regardless of how the rest of the house looks like. This man cave, for instance, is like a mini residence of its own—it even has its own refrigerator! It is a far cry from the feminine details that dominate the rest of the house.
3. Display things that reflect your interests.
Are you into biking or skateboarding? Showcase your bikes or skateboards—doing so will make your space you. Display your trophies as well or your precious vinyl toy collection.
4. Organize your entertainment system.
Even if you have your own man cave, it doesn’t mean you can let it thrive in neglect. Provide racks for your DVD collection and keep your TV console neat. Also, tie and conceal wires to avoid clutter.
5. Create a statement using iconic pieces.
Masculine spaces don’t have to sport dark colors all the time. White walls characterize this bachelor pad, and even if there aren’t a lot of accessories, the Arco Lamp and Womb Chair are enough to command attention.
