Few men go through a stage in their life where they are lucky or unlucky enough to live on their own and have expendable income. But when this happens, you may have the opportunity to create for yourself something that many men would do their best for, a bachelor flat.
First you need to be single, second you need some money and third you need a pad. Your only limitations are your imagination, funds, and free time. Look for an apartment in the city, this is the ideal place for a bachelor, if you can afford to buy that is great, if not, you can usually find what you are looking for to rent. Please note that a rented apartment cannot be overly modified. You’ll have to go through the usual stuff, location, size, price, etc., but you already know what you want, so go for it.
Once you’ve planned your property, your notepad should reflect your personality, unless you’re a jerk, so start thinking about color combinations, whether you want high-tech sci-fi cubism or luxurious patterned shagedelia. leopard. You are the one who will be living there, so choose what you want, but keep in mind that if you want people to hang out there, especially girls, it must be cozy and comfortable. Small rooms benefit from light and minimalist colors, but if you have a large space at your disposal, try mixing in some dark and masculine colors.
Choose furniture that makes an impact, in an apartment one of the most outstanding things you will have will be your sofa, choose the largest you can and preferably L-shaped, as it is elegant AND an efficient use of space. Choose a color that matches or complements your décor; black and white are usually safe options, but red will have an even bigger impact and rarely clash with other colors. Definitely go for leather, there is no real substitute, it must be leather. You’re not a girl so you don’t need a lot of cushions, but some funky here and there might work.
Some apartments have decent lighting, but if yours doesn’t, be sure to choose our original mood lighting. Don’t go crazy about colors, you’re not hosting a nightclub, but dramatic low-level lighting with a few feature pieces should do the trick. No pad would be complete without an excellent entertainment system; it is a status symbol and the electronic equivalent of your manhood. Pick the biggest and best TV you can afford – don’t just go big and cheap as your fellow singles will pick up on this and ridicule you for it. Go just as great with your surround sound, in an apartment it doesn’t really need to be that loud, but go for quality, some good stand-alone speakers really do trigger a system. Make sure you get the latest game console so you and your friends have a chance to fight for the alpha-nerd.
Don’t even start thinking about doing this without having your own bar, preferably with some stools. This will act as your bait of seduction, lair before drinking, and the venue for every after party. It will give you girls, friends and consolidate your social status as the party animal that you obviously are.
Lastly, every single flat needs that obscene and unnecessary indulgence that sets it apart from the rest of us idiots. It could be a pinball machine, a golf simulator, a hot tub. The more ridiculous the better, you shouldn’t need it at all and you will hardly ever use it more than to impress people. If you have a balcony, maybe you could invest in a barbecue with twelve separate grills and a kebab machine. Imagine the look on your friends’ faces when they discover you have the front half of a Ford Mustang as an office desk, “Yeah I found it on eBay and I HAD to have it, I couldn’t buy food this month, but it was worth it! “Lastly, sit back and enjoy it, because you can be sure it won’t last.
