The classic bachelor pad is a masterpiece in interior design. You need somewhere to relax, and somewhere to entertain. Most gentlemen are looking for something practical and easy to clean, but full of style. It’s not an easy combination to get right, but we think we’ve got the secrets up our sleeve. It’s all about choosing the main function of the home, and building everything else around it. Are you looking for cosy place to unwind or an entertaining hotspot for you and your boys? Do you want a gaming cave, or a sophisticated penthouse? The trick to nailing your bachelor pad is matching form and function. Here are some more essential things you need in your new place.
As guys, we tend to like things practical and straightforward. We don’t need additional frills or accessories. We need things in the right place, and things that serve a purpose. You can get away with a modern, minimalist style with a bachelor pad. Use empty space as a feature, and only put furniture and decoration where you really need it. Keep things simple to maintain, and easy to clean. Best of all, a simple apartment will keep your life free from clutter.
An area to socialise
The best thing about having a bachelor pad is inviting the guys over. The fridge is stocked with beers, and you can order food in to watch the game together. If you’re a tech savvy gentleman, you could set up a classic gaming championship on the big TV. If you’re feeling a bit more sophisticated, you can host a dinner party with your close friends or invite the neighbours around for a drink. However you choose to socialise, you need a place to entertain. You can section off a small part of the living room to sit and relax or invest in a decent dining table for the dinner party.
Home entertainment system
No bachelor pad is complete without a home entertainment system. This is your chance to install a huge TV, and let it take centre stage. Hook it up with powerful bass speakers and surround sound. It’s also worth wiring up a multi room audio system. You can then play music into every room of the house simultaneously. Great for parties and social events. You can put the radio on first thing in the morning, and send it to every room in the home. Last of all, get yourself a big selection of games and movies to keep you busy!
Well equipped kitchen and bar
A guy’s gotta eat! You need a well-equipped kitchen that’s perfect for grilling up those gourmet steak meals. Again, try to keep it simple and practical. Kit it out with essential appliances, and keep everything in one place. As for the drinks, why not install a wet bar in the kitchen, so you’ll always have cold beers at the ready? It’s a great way to impress your friends when they come around.
