So you landed a great job and are ready to move out of the house. Now, you are ready to build a bachelor pad! All said and done, it will be worth it.
The living room is a very important element of a bachelor pad. Afterall, you will be spending most of your waking time in this portion of your apartment. Here are the things you should consider for the living room
Every living room should have a quality entertainment system so that you can play some music while getting entertaining guests or relaxing.
The Boston Acoustics Tvee Model 26 ($199 on Amazon) is a nice choice and replicates 5.1-channel surround sound with an included wireless subwoofer and connects directly to your TV.
Home theater in a box systems like the Sony STR-DN840 make a good choice for the value ($449 MSRP). It has standard AV receiver features such as 7.1 channels and six HDMI inputs, but it’s also packed with wireless connectivity, including built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay.
A good L shaped sofa is great, especially when watching that expensive flat screen you just bought.
A good apartment has a bar that can make these three essential drinks:
- Gin and tonic (1 part gin, 2 parts tonic, and a splash of club soda)
- Old Fashion (1 sugar cube, 3 dashes of bitters, club soda, 2 parts whisky)
- Gin martini (2 parts gin, 1 part dry vermouth)
Decorate your plain bare walls with art. Make sure your house reflects your personality so that you can really leave a positive impression with your guests. Make sure its tasteful and it’s something you like. When in doubt go abstract.
