It’s your crib, your man cave…..your “man”ctuary – and chances are, it could use a little help from the experts. Here are some investments you can make to take your bachelor pad to the next level.
1. Invest in good sheets.
Time to throw away those superhero sheets and invest in some high quality, high thread count sheets. Every penny spent toward good sleep (and, ahem, other activities) is worth the investment. Check out the masculine colors and textures offered by Area Home.
2. Consider Candles.
Do you associate candles with floral, feminine scents? It’s time to rethink the candle. 2550 degrees has an entire line of masculine scents, including “Joe” which is described as “A smoldering bonfire, a well-worn leather jacket & sling of whiskey”. We think Hemingway would approve.
3. Don’t skimp on the rug.
A good quality rug can pull the whole room together, and last for years. We love these classic and fun cow hide rugs from Surya.
4. Invest in a piece of original artwork.
If your “art collection” consists of an Animal House poster leftover from your college days, it may be time for an upgrade. A piece of original art is a great investment, a great talking piece, and an important contribution to the art world. Check out local galleries in your area. We love this piece by one of our favorite local artists, Rusty Walton.
5. Control your cords.
We know you are proud of your entertainment system, but that jumble of cables, power strips, dvds, and game consoles is giving us a headache. There are many store-bought and DIY options for getting the mess out of sight. We guarantee even the guys will be impressed come game day.
