Your shopping cart is empty!
You've just graduated from college, secured your first "real" job, and signed the lease on your first apartment. Congratulations!
You know you want your new space to be welcoming, but aren't totally sure where to start.
If you want to build the perfect bachelor pad you'll be proud to show off, there are a few essentials you'll definitely want to invest in.
Find out what three things you need to make your space feel like a real man lives there below.
The smell of your bachelor pad can be a huge turnoff to guests...whether they're friends, family, or your significant other.
If your place smells like the inside of a locker room, no one's going to feel welcome or want to hang out there. For a quick, easy fix, pick up a few candles.
Get one for your living room and one for your bedroom. You'll be pleasantly surprised by how good they make the old bachelor pad smell.
Not sure what kind to buy? Steer clear of anything sickeningly sweet.
You might think a sweet-scented candle will please the lady in your life, but honestly? No one wants to walk into an apartment that smells like a Cinnabon.
Try a muted, earthy scent, like Cedar + Fig.
Believe it or not, investing in a set of good quality, high-thread-count sheets (and keeping them clean!) can help you fall into a peaceful slumber with ease. And it doesn't hurt that they'll definitely impress any overnight guests you may have, either.
Make yourself and your guest more comfortable by outfitting your bed with a nice set of sheets. You'll be thankful you did. Seriously.
And once you've got your sheet situation sorted out, you can start to think about the decor throughout the rest of your bedroom too. Add some framed photos to your walls, nightstand, or dresser, and you can elevate the ambiance in your room with minimal effort.
As important as keeping the bathroom at your bachelor pad clean is, having a nice hand soap for guests (or bae) to use when they come over is, too.
It might seem inconsequential, but having a solid hand soap by your side will convey to guests that 1) You place importance on personal hygiene, 2) You want them to feel comfortable, and 3) You have good taste.
You don't have to splurge, either.
As much as the 14-year-old boy inside of you wants to hang out pants-free with a bag of Doritos in one hand and a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon in the other, at some point, every man needs to grow up.
Whether you start with just a candle or some fragrant hand soap, any progress to make your bachelor pad more livable and welcoming is good.
You should be proud of that!
And, with these easy tips in mind, you can make your pad infinitely more inviting without doing a whole lot of work.
