How-To Create Masculine Rooms

houston mortgage texas - how-to create masculine roomsWhile “man caves” are increasing in popularity, masculine decorating does not mean you must resort to deer horn mounts and light-up beer signs. Rather, our team of Houston mortgage experts has provided tips on how to create an interior space that is both manly and mature. Follow our guide and you will quickly see how easy it is to design a room, or entire home, that reflects a masculine sensibility in its style and appearance.

Formulate a Plan.

Before you select a paint color or begin shopping for new furniture, start your man-cave decorating project by formulating a plan. Ask yourself, what is the main function of the room? What is his personality like? Will the masculine space be used to host friends for the big games or a quiet reading nook? Answering questions such as these will provide you with a starting point. They will help you identify what the room should look like and what function it will serve.

Incorporate Color and Texture.

Once you have a jumping off point, it’s time to consider colors and textures. Again, consider the purpose of the room. Is the room going to serve as a TV room, weight room or game room? Is there any furniture or décor you plan to keep in the room. If so, you will want to choose colors and fabrics that complement these pieces. Lastly, if you are completely stuck on what color to paint the walls, you can never go wrong with a taupe or gray. These iconic masculine hues fit almost any male personality.


Find Floors and Furniture.

Furniture, floor coverings and rugs are other areas where texture can come into play. For masculine rooms, it is best to stick with leather and tweeds since those fabrics are generally associated with men. Other fabric patterns that could provide a hint of masculinity include herringbones and plaids. Also, rugs that are solid or have a bold geometric pattern tend to be most preferred by men.

After picking out fabrics, it’s time to select the actual furniture. Always remember to keep the man who will be using the furniture in mind. The furniture should be comfortable for him and allow him plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Also, we recommend sticking with clean lines and darker colors for a more masculine vibe.

Always Accessorize.

While men may believe that accessories only make a room feminine, an interior space is simply not complete without a few finishing touches. Bring in a large piece of artwork to serve as the room’s focal point, or add a non-flowering plant in the corner of the room to bring in color and life. Stay selective when picking out knick-knacks; too many throw pillows can make a room feel stuffy and less masculine.
