Moving on to the living room, Men’s Fit Club’s Editorial Staff gives three helpful tips to make your bachelor pad more inviting:
- Keep it clean...but not too clean. You don't want guests feeling uncomfortable.
- Make sure you keep a color scheme of three or four hues in mind. This will help to declutter the room visually.
- It’s time to bring out the art curator in you. The Editorial Staff says a great way to find good, inexpensive art is to go to a small, unnamed gallery that showcases local artists’ work. Finally, keep your juvenile accessories hidden; you’re a man now, not a boy, and the only thing people want to see on your coffee table is the morning paper.
Lastly, the interior designer for several A-listers, Mike Valles, gives some last-minute touches to your pad. Bring privacy by hanging black curtains, keeping both window neighbors and the sun from peeking in. Also, appeal to the senses -- all of them. Mike says a great way to appeal to both touch and sight is to mix up the texture of your furniture. Another way is to make the best of a great view, if you have one, by opening couches and chairs to the window. Mike’s final note is stay up-to-date on the styles of the day, which is as easy as changing out old throw pillows or appliances for sleek, new ones.
