Not all men have a sense of design style! However, with a little research and a penchant for good living a man can create a fabulous looking home that oozes style. These 10 tips are the main things every man should bare in mind when choosing his décor.
Mismatching – it’s fine to mismatch furniture and furnishings, just so long as they have a common theme.
Match your home to your personality – it’s your home after all, so your choice of décor should reflect who you are. Don’t be afraid to show your feminine side.
Add accessories just for show – you may think accessories are pointless, but you’ll need to include them to stop your home becoming dull, boring and bland.
Old works well with new – just like mismatching, it’s fine to have old and new in the same room if they have common ground.
Dressing up the sofa – sofas without cushions, and even a throw, are like beds without sheets! Cushions can be masculine, try using ones with solid colours, leather or suede.
Get an accent chair – be the master in your own home and allocate an accent chair that’s strictly for you!
Add greenery – plants, especially those without flowers, can add visual impact, texture and in some cases height to a room. If you’re not very good at looking after plants go for low maintenance cacti or air-plants.
Include some artwork – bare walls are eye-sores! Add some designer artwork to show that you have a taste for the arts.
Include a rug – think large and chunky if you want a rug with masculine appeal.
Have a bar – home bars are bang on-trend; they don’t have to be large and OTT just as long as it’s well stocked!
