Without wishing to upset the politically correct people who would suggest that you can’t consider furnishing a room specifically for a man or a woman, common sense will tell you that if you are setting aside a room that will only be used by a man, there are separate considerations.
The first consideration is to look at upgrading to aluminium sliding doors or perhaps bi-fold doors. If you are in Sydney a good option is to book your free consultation with BetaView. A new door will provide easy access for a pool table, large furniture and the biggest television available on the planet!
You will be obliged to begin your decisions about how to furnish a room for a man by looking at the individual. Mostly, you will be planning how to decorate and place furniture in a room for the person that is going to use it, but with keeping one eye on the potential future sale of your property so that you don’t make changes to your home that will make selling it either difficult or impossible.
Men do tend to look for more comfortable and larger furniture than women. This maybe based on the fact that men are generally taller and larger than their female partners, even though of course, everyone can point out situations to the contrary, but it does give you a starting point.
For tall men in particular, furniture that has a deeper seat is much easier to use and spread out on. The same size to furniture ratio is also important when you’re looking to purchase office furniture or upgrade your dining room furniture.
The politically correct brigade may not wish it to be said, but generally speaking, men wear and treat the furniture worse than women. Dropping into the furniture can be a difficult habit for the furniture to accommodate with over the long term so it’s better to buy furniture that is extremely sturdy.
Leather and other hardy fabrics are good choices as finishes, whereas delicate fabrics like silk may become easily damaged.
Coffee tables will appreciate a long life if they are built well from the beginning because they may have to withstand damage from feet on the table and probably from water and beer stains, which will probably direct you to good hardwood or metal furniture which can withstand rough use.
Aluminium windows and doors can withstand consistent force and will wear much better than wooden ones. Install the best windows and doors you can afford throughout your home, particularly in high traffic areas.
Colours that men understand how to say are much more useful than presenting an enormous pallet of options. Keeping the colours simple and neutral will always be better than looking at floral patterns or anything with a lacy finish. It isn’t difficult to furnish a room for a man, particularly if you consider all the options before you begin.
