Men don’t really have the best reputation when it comes to keeping a tidy bedroom, in fact there are whole portions of the internet dedicated to Men’s horrible bedrooms from the disgusting stuff known as Neckbeard Nests to a bevvy of articles about why some men don’t have a bed in their bedroom (seriously guys?).
So, it’s safe to say, as a gender, we’re not known for keeping our bedrooms prim and proper, while some Men are happy living in pits, as you grow older and leave your early 20’s ‘bro’ phase and enter adulthood, you’ll find having a messy or unkempt bedroom can be quite embarrassing, especially when you have guests over.
How can you take your bedroom from looking like a bomb went off in a college dorm and change it so that you have a stylish and clean bedroom, fit to be the crown jewel of any swanky bachelor pad? If you’re asking that, you’re in the right place as we’ve consulted some Décor experts to give you the lowdown on how to end your bedroom embarrassment!
Clean and Tidy Up
For some, this is a no-brainer, but for some other men, this may be a bit ‘out there’… Tidy up and keep your bedroom clean, no one on Earth wants to come home with a man that has 3 months of empty takeaway containers around their bedroom.
Just by cleaning your toom and keeping it tidy, your room will look much better. After a clean, it’ll be lighter, you’ll have more floor space and you’ll look like a functioning adult to anyone who sees your room. While we could all live in our own filth as teenagers or in college, it’s time to grow up and tidy up!
Stop Your DIY Bodge Jobs
If you’re a man with your own home, it’s likely you’ve done a few horrible DIY bodge jobs in your time. Whether it’s using a blanket as window blinds, using the box your TV came in as a TV stand or something equally as cheap and weird. While it’s cheaper to bodge something, rather than buy, you’ll find your home ends up looking like a squat house.
The solution to this? Just stop doing horrible DIY in your home and pony up some money for the real deal, just by having some proper wide blinds, TV stand, etc, you’ll find your room looks a lot better without all of your DIY monstrosities in the bedroom.
Have Appropriate Bedroom Furniture
We’ve already mentioned how some men are perfectly content just sleeping on a mattress that’s on the floor. If you’re one of those guys it’s time to stop it and buy a bedframe and other bed furniture. Sleeping on a mattress on the floor is okay for a few days after moving house, but if it becomes a permanent fixture you’ll hurt your back & scare away guests.
So, make sure that you buy a bedframe, you don’t need to spend a lot of money to buy a bed frame. Nowadays you can find bedframes that cost only a couple hundred bucks, so it’s not like they’re ridiculously expensive. By just putting your mattress on a bed frame, your room will look a lot more adult and approachable.
