Turn Your Room Into A Stylish Bachelor Pad When Living In A Shared House

Stylish Bachelor Pad

Living in a shared house is difficult. There are obvious privacy issues, and you are at the mercy of your housemates when it comes to cleanliness and tidiness. Your room is your own domain, however, and with a little work it will be transformed into an attractive, modern room where girls and guys will enjoy chilling out. Let’s face it; no one likes a smelly, dirty room.

Here are the secrets you need to know.

Decorate First

If you do not make a good backdrop for everything else in the room, the whole project is a waste of time. The decor does not need to be anything fancy, just paint the walls a neutral colour to make the room feel more spacious. If you prefer, wallpaper one wall with a modern design, or better still, think about using a mural paper depicting a city lit at night, or the city skyline in the morning sun. There are hundreds of murals from which to choose that will suit your personality and bring a thoroughly modern touch to the room.

Change The Carpet

There is a good chance that the carpet in your smelly room has seen better days. Think nothing of ripping it up and throwing it in a skip. Hip young dudes, today, are turning towards laminate flooring; the ideal choice for this situation. A rented room is the place where you eat and drink, so stains are bound to spoil the carpet there. Laminate does not stain; it is easy to wipe clean, and looks modern; perfect for you. Laminate flooring is simple to put down if you have even the slightest ability to use a hand saw. Once the laminate is down, your pad will look completely different.


Satellite television is a requirement for a single man. Once you have experienced it, it is difficult to go back to the confines of terrestrial stations. It is most useful to have a channel for all occasions and moods.

Get connected! In the modern age, socialising doesn’t end when you shut the door behind you. People are expected to be in permanent contact with their friends and acquaintances, so a fast internet connection is a standard requirement. Laptops take up much less space than desktop computers, so unless you are into powerful gaming applications they are the best option for your room.

Cool Furniture

What do you need in your room? The most important item is a bed. Modern sofa beds are not the rickety contraptions they used to be, and are well suited to this room. Slip covered pieces are a brilliant solution for you setting because they are washable, or simple to renew when necessary. Using a sofa bed frees up  valuable space in the daytime for relaxing and socialising.


Accessories are important in the overall ambiance of the room, and nothing says bachelor like the timeless lava lamp. They were common in the 1950s and 60s but have found new popularity of late. Ordinary table lamps work better than overhead lights for creating a romantic mood that you seek.

By following the above advice, you will have a cool crib in to time at all. Your life will change for the better, and all because you learned the secrets here. Buy a lottery ticket, this has been your lucky day!
