They often say that a home needs a woman’s touch. But where does that leave a man? Isn’t it reasonable for a man to have some say, too? After all, a home should provide comfort for all who reside within.
With this in mind, we’d like to take some time to flip things around a bit and address the need for a masculine touch when it comes to luxury home design.
More Than A Man Cave
Let’s face it…a man cave is a great idea. Men need a place to call their own where they can be, well, men. Throw in a pool table, a gigantic flat screen TV, and a comfy couch and you’re good to go, right? For some guys, this is enough. But, if the rest of the home is full of flowers and fluff, the man of the house may never come out of his cave.
Gender Balance In Home Décor
There are many ways to create a home that is appealing to both men and women. The main idea is to start with a neutral palette that can serve as a backdrop for décor enhancements. Keeping things clean and simple is one way to appease either gender. If you choose to incorporate patterns, minimize the floral and stick to solids and subtle stripes. Additionally, the colors you choose should reflect the style of your home and your collective taste.
His Rooms and Hers
When determining a general color scheme throughout the home, you can create a sense of consistency and cohesiveness. But that doesn’t mean that every room as to look the same. If you choose a theme that includes two or three complementary colors, you can vary the intensity of shades and hues in different rooms of your home. A man’s office, for example, can be defined with richer and deeper colors, while a sitting room or sunroom can be dressed in softer tones.
For The Collector
Many luxury homeowners are proud to display their valuable collections. Whether a collection of fine artwork or classic cars, connoisseurs of the finer things want to have a place to showcase their prized possessions. Men have taken the lead in this realm when it comes to such experiential home amenities. High-end car galleries, for example, are more than just garages. They honor the art of automotive excellence. With rotating turntables, state-of-the-art lighting, and upscale entertainment and relaxation features, these ultimate garages rival any high-end car showroom. Other man-driven home amenities may include a gentlemen’s cigar lounge, a billiards room, or a sports-themed retreat for games of poker and watching endless hours of sports with the guys.
