Interior Design Guide: Creating the Ultimate Bachelor’s Pad

Not all men experience living the privileged life of a successful bachelor. So when one goes through this stage of combined singlehood and expendable income, men seize the moment and create their one of a kind domain – the ultimate bachelor’s pad.

Basically, men to have a bachelor’s pad should be – single and owns a considerable amount of money to create a bachelor’s pad with a luxury interior design that goes beyond one’s imagination. Still depending on your resources, you can either buy a pad or find the perfect place to rent – a place that you can modify a bit to suit your taste, needs and your personality.

Color Schemes

Who says interior decorating is a sole concern of women? Men have also become very particular when it comes to the look and feel of their abode. Though some color scheme ideas on pad decorating primarily falls on the wilder high-tech-sci-fi-minimalist or sometimes classy and elegant masculine feel, you should also be aware of what your guest, especially girls, will feel about your theme. Small rooms will go best with minimalist colors and a flood of light, but large spaces can benefit from a mix of dark masculine colors.

Furniture

When choosing furniture pieces for a bachelor’s pad consider those that make an impact on first sight. Go for the biggest L-shaped sofa with stylish mix of dark and light colors and soft leather feel. Black and white may be safe choices but red or black is great for impact and it rarely clashes with other colors too.

Appliance and Lighting

For highlighting and spot effect, have some mood lighting installed at strategic areas around your pad. A bachelor’s pad will never be a bachelor’s pad without a killer entertainment system. Keep in mind that this construes your status symbol as well as serves as an electronic equivalent of your maleness. Go for best and the biggest television you can afford and do the same for your surround sound system.  Don’t miss out on the latest gaming console too!

Lastly, don’t think about starting a bachelor’s pad without considering having your own bar! If you love throwing parties, a sophisticated bar unit is an essential. Moreover, you can also go get something truly obscene or any unnecessary luxury to set you apart from the rest. It could be a Jacuzzi, a huge barbeque grill on your terrace, a golf stimulator or a front half of a Ford Mustang in your living room!

    Totally agree. Men does have their own preference as well. The colors, furniture and lighting has a big overall effect thus planning is very important too.

    I think I need to design my pad like this since it’s now too cluttered.

    Those pictures you featured Ate Joy are really pretty arrangements for a bachelor’s interior. They sure do have a feminine touch to them like the coordinating colors and pillows with touches of flowers and not-so-masculine lamps. I think they will be great designs to have if a bachelor decides to marry. I’ll be an easy transition to a “couples” abode.

    Reminds me that my boys would be bachelors in a decade or two haha. I’m sure they’ll be wanting their own pad and will be designing it themselves. The gaming console is something that will not be missed. If hubby has his way, he’d be designing our home his way. :)

    Any bachelor would definitely dream to have such a lovely pad. Even hubby at this point is dreaming of having his own space at home.
