As a guy, there are tons of different ideas you can implement when designing your room. But we don’t always have the time or enthusiasm for every single design detail. Then again, there are some timeless ideas that bring comfort and class to your man-room that are definitely worth the effort. And today, we want to share these ideas with you!
Your taste can range from minimalism to mystery to vintage or industrial. But these design ideas will fit into pretty much any ambiance and structure. Some of these ideas are conceptual, while others are real tangible items. But each has a distinct place and purpose in your man-room. They’ll add utility as well as aesthetics. They’ll simply change the way you see, feel, and experience your room. Let’s get on with it!
Start with the Bed
When it comes to beds, keep it simple and clean. Minimalism should be the mantra for every guy’s bed space. Get a bed with sharper angles and straight edges. ALWAYS get a quality mattress to go with it. You never know who’s joining you for the night! But if you’re forever alone, at least be forever alone in comfort.
The Treasure Chest
One of the simplest storage solutions for a guy is a sturdy chest. You can pile in the extra towels and bed linen in it. Place it at the end of your bed. Add a few cushions, and it instantly becomes a bench.
The Leather Chair
Besides the bed, this one’s arguably the most crucial piece of furniture. The chair, it’s where you can relax and “chill” when you’re not in the mood for a sprawling bed. Try to invest in a good leather recliner. They have the best look for a man-room, as well as ultimate comfort.
Keep textures simple
Do not add too much design and style to your texture. “Textures” as in wall designs, mattress choices, furniture styles, etc. Try to keep them uniform and simplistic. Go for geometrical patterns if you must have a few.
The Rustic Rug
Nothing adds warmth and wholeness to your room like the right rug. Pick a pattern and color that complements the bed and the walls. You can use animal rugs if that’s your thing. Place it off-center for the best visual effects.
Wood paneling is a go-to option for many interior designers doing rooms for men. They require some investment. But they’ll spruce up your man-cave with a masculine tone. Pair it up with dark tones and window shades.
For the musically inclined, hang your instruments on the wall for display and to optimize space. The wall will feel like a separate space on its own. Add a Marshall speaker or upright piano to complete the look.
For the creative soul, consider hanging art pieces around the room to express your personality. Bold paintings or abstract designs can both work equally well. They’ll add color and life to a dull bedroom any day.
Curved seats can create corridors and living spaces within your bedroom. Arrange some rounded furniture away from the bed to create a personal lounge/movie-space.
Feel the Future
Futuristic décor items can add a new lease of life to your man-room. The items can depend on your own taste or interests. Whether it’s utility gadgets or décor items, you can use stuff that fits your preference.
Light it up
If you have big, long windows, make use of natural light. Go for darker textures indoors, which can brighten up with the natural light. When the right amount of light enters a room, the darkest hues can become classier and more tasteful.
If you’re a man who loves to travel, implement this personality in your room too. You can have clusters of souvenirs in one corner of the room. Alternatively, you can scatter them across different corners. Either way, it will show your guests that you’re someone who’s been around.
Close to Nature
If you have greenery or natural surroundings, structure your room around the view. Sliding glass doors are a great way of retaining the view without exposure. If full glass doors or walls are too expensive, you can always go for bigger and wider windows.
Go Bold with contrast.
A great way to play around with the colors in your man room is to contrast the colors. Opposing colors often give shape and distinction to different spaces in the room. A dark bed cover and rug can go well against a lighter wall around it.
Keep it Neutral and Gray.
If you’re not a fan of contrasts, you can go for a more neutral tone. Neutral tones naturally exert a masculine and manly vibe. To completely capture this, go for a grayish tone that can keep things simple yet classy.
The Dark and Dim Cave
For a lot of men, the darker themes work really well in the bedroom. Go for charcoal-themed furniture so that they can blend in. Use lights that are dim and warm so that the room remains cozy.
These ideas can be stand-alone concepts or inspiration for a bigger vision. But each tip and idea discussed here brings a unique element to your man room.
Remember, you can use these tips for inspiration, but the originality lies in you. Don’t hesitate to express your personality and the true nature of who you are!
