For the most part, bachelor pads get a bad rap. We tend to think mirrored ceilings and round beds but in our experience, that just isn't the case. In the past, when we've come upon a bachelor pad bedroom, we've always noticed the hotel like quality of the space. There's usually impeccable bedding (silky, dark and comfy) followed by good lighting (3 to 5 sources of light instead of one overhead light). Artwork and knick-knacks tend to be sparse and often times a mirror (or two) will be displayed tastefully in the space. Bachelor pad bedrooms tend to be painted black, gray or white (no bright, bold colors here). Because we love the staycation vibe of a hotel inspired bedroom, we enjoy bachelor pad bedroom decor.
Apartment Therapy readers, in bachelor bad bedrooms that have been decorated tastefully, what qualities do you like and apply in your home?
