Designing a Manly Bedroom: 5 Winning Tips for Men
Are you a man who wants to make your bedroom look like the kind of place that would make you feel like a king? Do you have an eye for design but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got five tips that will help you create the masculine bedroom of your dreams.
Choose Bold Furniture
If you want to create an impressive man-cave vibe, pick furniture pieces that aren’t afraid to make a statement. Think big and bold - oversized armoires or dressers, or a bed with a statement headboard. Choose muted colors like grey, brown or black for your furniture pieces to create an inviting and cozy atmosphere in the bedroom.

Keep Clutter to a Minimum
To show you're a disciplined man, you’ll want to keep any items that don’t serve an aesthetic or practical purpose out of the bedroom. This includes things like stacks of old magazines and piles of laundry. Keep things neat and tidy by investing in storage solutions like ottomans with removable lids, shelves, and cabinets to store away items when not in use.

Invest in Quality Bedding
When it comes to comfort and style, you can’t go wrong with quality bedding. Splurge on a comfortable mattress and invest in high-quality sheets and pillows. Not only will this help create the perfect place to relax after a long day, but it also adds an air of sophistication to your bedroom.

Add Interesting Lighting
Good lighting can completely transform the look of any room, so why not take advantage of this when designing your masculine bedroom? Try adding some floor or table lamps to create interesting shadows and highlights, or even some rope lighting around the walls. The options are endless, so don’t be afraid to get creative.
