What associations do the words “bachelor pad” conjure in your mind? David Hasslehoff’s slick pad from Knight Rider? Or perhaps a Bond movie penthouse overlooking some water…full of designer furniture and art? If that’s what you’re thinking then you are stuck in the past. In today’s day and age, the reality is somewhat different. While we single men like to have fun and socialise, where we live – be it a small studio or 1500 sq ft apartment, is our sanctuary. With the average working week consuming …. hours, add the time spent to commute on top, and really – there isn’t much time left for enjoyment. More and more young professionals choose to be self-employed and work from home. So in a word – your pad is more than a playpen. It is your living space as well as office, a place to play and a place to rest.
It should entirely represent you – the one who lives in it. Your hobbies, preferences in terms of art, ways of entertaining guests, style, colors, furniture, all this should tell your story, offer comfort and above all be practical.
