Let’s face it… home design can be a challenge for some guys. A typical bro pad consists of an old comfortable sofa (more than likely a “craigslist free-stuff special”), an Ikea coffee table, a bunch of random Star Wars posters, and busted cabinet that proudly displays an 86-inch 4K HDR Smart TV. C’mon bro… you can do better than that! Let us help you design an epic bro pad that will be a great spot for you and your bros to bro out, but that will also impress on date night.
One common misconception we encounter when working with guys, is that they think to make the space look nice, we’re going to suggest that they get rid of all their “cool stuff.” No worries, bro! You can keep your Star Wars memorabilia, guitars, and gaming console. We’re just going to help display all your cool stuff in a way that will convey how much you truly treasure these items. Putting all your limited-edition Star Wars posters in custom matching frames or getting your guitars off the ground and displaying them proudly on proper stands is a great place to start. These items will become the artistic focal points from which we can design the entire space.
Color plays a huge part in the way a home looks and feels. Cooler colors, such as grays, blues, and browns, will help to create a more masculine vibe. Another great way to keep the masculine energy flowing through your space is with texture. Natural wood elements, like a coffee table or bed frame, paired with a leather sofa or chairs will do the trick. Introduce some metal finishes with shelving or secondary side tables and you’re in business!
Now that we’ve given you some ideas for your living areas, why don’t we take this into the bedroom. If there’s one area in your bro pad that you want to appear elegant and inviting, this is it. Keep your bro stuff out of this space! This is where you’re going to be spending most of your time, whether in dream land or making magic. It should feel comfortable, luxurious, and adult AF! Bite the bullet and invest in a set (or two) of soft, high-quality linens for your bed. Nothing kills the mood faster than scratchy, cheap sheets.
