Home Decor For Men

Home Décor for Men

For the everyday man, what is the number one goal in home design he’d like to achieve? Comfort. When some women decorate their home, they put looks before comfort, but a lot of men tend to think differently. They want a place that’s low-maintenance, relaxing, and simple. Lots of women may opt for this as well, but the main difference between the two gender’s décor is how it looks overall.

No matter where a man lives, whether it’s a condo, house, or loft, they all have one theme in common – functionality. Normally, the most important factor of their home is the electronics. They may not necessarily add to the décor, but a big screen TV,

Big TV Stands , laptop, or video game system may be considered their focal point!

When it comes to furniture, a piece that’s definitely the ultimate in comfort is a recliner.

Match the recliner’s cushy, oversized look with a sofa set that’s in the same style. If you’re worried that oversized pieces will make a room seem smaller, that’s actually the opposite of their effect – they can actually make a room look bigger depending on how you arrange them.

To add even more comfort to the living room, try an ottoman instead of a coffee table. Its padded top can act as a footrest, as well as a tabletop and even storage.

If you’re looking for a dining room table, less is more. A table with little to no details, in a dark shade, represents masculine style.

A desk can also work in the same style. If you’ve needed one for your home office, depending on the amount of storage you need, there’s a masculine desk out there for you.

Lots of men really don’t care about a bed frame or headboard – they feel like all they need is a comfy mattress and sheets to fall asleep. So, the simpler the bed frame, the better – and usually no headboard is required.

What about paint colours? Some men can’t be bothered to pick out paint colours because it may be considered an unnecessary detail, but it will tie the whole masculine design scheme together. Colours that are associated with men are the dark, deep versions of primary colours – navy, red, green, and of course black & white for accent. Here are a few samples from Benjamin Moore to get you inspired:
