Don’t get carried away by all the glossy inspiration you see ever so often while flipping through bachelor pad ideas. While aesthetics are important, try and amalgamate them with ergonomics in a balanced manner. To put it in simpler terms, comfort comes ahead of style! A bachelor pad is primarily your personal refuge where you rest, recuperate and relax after a hard day at work. Never let go of the cozy, snug appeal simply to bring in some eye candy. But comfort does not mean a poorly kept, shabbily decorated living room. Pick out a quality couch to kick start the makeover of your own bachelor pad.

Decorating a bachelor pad can be really challenging for any of us, even if at first it doesn’t seem to be so complicated. A bachelor pad should entirely represent the one who lives in it. Hobbies, preferences in terms of art, ways of entertaining guests, style, colors, furniture, all of these plus tones of other details should outline the owner’s personality.

If you have a room with a view to showcase, turn that view into the focal point of the bachelor pad. Most modern homes are quickly shifting toward designs that bring the outdoors in. Why not adopt a similar style and let the view become the room’s biggest asset? The bachelor pads showcased here present views that vary from the iconic New York City skyline to the distant waves of a vibrant Miami Beach. Even if the view outside your large glass window is simply a quiet little street, let it become a part of your living room.

Want to enjoy a round of pool or poker along with your buddies over the weekend? Why not create a little nook and add some game tables to your living room? That’s one of the charms of the single life, and if you want to invite some friends over for a fun night, a small home bar and a dart board might be the way to go. Expand the horizons of your living room and make it an inviting, engaging space. Any home, bachelor pad or not, should reflect the styles of the people living in it. Don’t become consumed with creating a picture-perfect look.

Large sectional sofas are a great idea for the bachelor pad living room. With friends flocking to the apartment each weekend and sometimes crashing for the night, the sectional also doubles as a plush makeshift bed. If your couch can transform into a bed with ease, even better! Add a stylish coffee table to complete the core of your living room. Since most of us grab a bite in front of the TV, the coffee table is an absolute must indeed.
