Some of the top most desired items for the best male living spaces are gadgets. Men love them, and they love their homes more when they’ve got some toys to show off. In addition to the usual TV with the biggest screen you can fit, Xbox, PlayStation, etc., some high tech additions that could really impress with your home are:
Once you’ve got the tech accessories locked in, consider investing in some next level appliances in your kitchen. Black stainless steel is the current winner for the most sleek and stylish appliance material. If you have the budget, consider going for the full matching kitchen with: black stainless fridge (smart fridge with clear view and internal camera of course), microwave, dishwasher, and oven/stovetop range. This will elevate your cooking game and make your kitchen look amazing.
A current look for men that never fails to impress is a combination of shiny modern elements such as metal and glass with rough natural wood pieces intermixed throughout. Think: black stainless appliances with natural wood barstools, dining table, or wood floors. In each room throughout your space, think about combining shapes and textures in each room to keep things visually interesting.
Do not neglect the details. One mistake that a lot of men make is to think their place is “done” as soon as they have the main elements. In a living room this might mean getting a couch and a TV and then leaving the rest of the room bare. To really fill out a living room, you’ll want a multitude of items that make the room feel cozy and comfortable. Think ottomans, a throw blanket on the couch, side chairs, end tables, shelves for books, video games, records, knickknacks, plants in various sizes, artwork for the walls, and a rug.
Details to complete the space in your bedroom might be: a real bed, complete with frame and headboard, an area rug tucked partly under the edge of the bed, a comforter with at least four to five coordinated pillows, nightstands with lamps to provide multiple light sources, more plants, and blackout curtains (these are an essential for guys who like to sleep in on the weekend). Also do not neglect to hang some items on the walls. Art that shows off your personality would be a plus for your bedroom. A tall, floor standing mirror would be a functional and stylish addition.
Extras that will make your dining room feel great include: another light source, such as a standing lamp near the dining table, a buffet table if you have the room or a well stocked quality bar cart, a centerpiece on the table (a medium sized succulent in a pot would look great), and placemats for each seat at your table. If you have a large combination kitchen and dining area, a rug under the dining table will help separate the two spaces and can cover ugly flooring.
Neglecting to fill in the details of your home will leave your space feeling empty and not quite comfortable. And don’t forget to infuse your personality into each room. If you like sports, incorporate some items from your favorite team, or if you took a once in a lifetime vacation to a foreign country, hang some of the souvenirs or art from that place to have a focal point that makes you happy to look at.
