There is no being quite like the single man. Single men live an entirely different lifestyle than any other type of human on the planet. They live for the day, focusing on anything that catches their fancy, often switching their interests more frequently than they do their underwear. Most men do not enjoy decorating their house. Sometimes they decorate with things that were purchased for them, often by a parent, and sometimes they live with whatever an ex has left. Most often, however, they throw a few things in a room and consider that their master bedroom furniture.
Single Men, Single Bed
A typical single man’s bedroom furniture consists of a bureau, often fairly beat up and over-stuffed with clothes, a night stand which serves to hold the lamp and the alarm clock, and a bed. Some single men have televisions in their bedroom as well, but many simply fall asleep watching television in the living room.
A single man’s bed is an interesting thing. You would think that they would need nothing larger than a twin, but must single men enjoy having as much space in their bed that they can get. Most men’s bedrooms will have a full-size bed and some get really luxurious and get a queen or even a king sized bed! When it comes to men and beds, bigger is always better.
To Decorate or Not?
Men, it is entirely possible to decorate your bedroom so that it gives off a masculine feel while still being attractive. For starters, contemporary bedroom furniture means having furniture that is younger than twenty years old. It’s entirely possible to have some great older pieces in your bedroom, but no one wants to have a yellow bureau that was old even in the seventies! Decide whether you want to have wood bedroom sets or metal bedroom sets. A nice metal bedroom set can look very masculine, especially if the metal is burnished instead of polished.
Wooden bedroom sets can look very stylish, especially if you use a dark colored wood like Mahogany or Oak for the pieces. Here’s a tip: if you have too many clothes to fit into your bureau, start using your closet, get a larger bureau or get a second bureau. There is no rule that states that you need only have one bureau, and your room looks much more organized if all of the drawers and doors in your room are closed the way they are supposed to be.
What About Walls?
What about the walls in your room? You can put nothing on them, but then you are looking at an extremely dull room. If you’re planning on leaving the walls bare, you may want to splash some color on them. A nice dark brown or dark blue should work perfectly to match with your contemporary bedroom furniture. If you would like to put something on the walls, go for photos of your family, your pets, or your favorite sports team. These will add a personal touch that will show any potential guest who you really are.
