Some Bachelor Pad Decorating Mistakes
It’s interesting to note is that most bachelors do not believe that they have made any bachelor pad decorating mistakes.
The first thing that a bachelor needs to do is realize that he is not qualified to decorate any room except his private entertainment room for the boys.
Bachelor Pad Decorating Liberties
Every bachelor should have at least one room where he can set up the poker table, have an antiquated one door fridge, and have whatever posters desires on the wall.
Otherwise, the rest of the apartment should be decorated to normal standards.
Many bachelors are proud of what they call their man space or man cave. What they do not realize is that they will remain bachelors unless they get some help in how to decorate.
There are companies that have qualified designers that can come into your sanctuary and provide you with a unique style apartment that is both attractive and personal.
It should be noted that many of these designers are very affordable and if you ever want to attract a normal, loving wife, you should take their advice.
These designers are qualified to ask you all the pertinent questions that will make your man cave attractive.
One of the biggest mistakes that most bachelors make is choosing color. Bachelors do not have any sense of what colors go with other colors.
To them, orange and purple make a perfect combination. Or perhaps you have seen the bachelor pad that utilizes black, white, and one other color.
Bachelors love to use primary colors that are both unsophisticated and outdated. They also have no idea on lighting techniques.
Their idea of a decorative lighting scheme is to use black light with fluorescent wall posters. They also prefer fluorescent lights which will kill any romantic mood.
Most bachelors do not have a clue about floor lamps or wall lighting. The only type of lighting that they use are from overhead lights.
While you do need some overhead lights it should be obvious that a room with only an overhead light is a boring room with no character.
A qualified professional designer will be able to incorporate a variety of lighting schemes utilizing various sources of light such as a floor lamp, or a table lamp, or a wall light fixture.
They will also incorporate dimmer switches which will allow the bachelor to change the mood of the room with the turn of a knob.
A qualified and reputable designer has been trained with all types of tips and tricks to help the bachelor eliminate bad habits and replace them with good ones.
For example, how often does a bachelor change his bath towel? What type of glasses, cutlery, and dinner plates does he have? Where does he watch TV?
All of these things plus others are important when changing your bachelor man cave into a home.
