The place you live in usually reflects who you are as a person. If you live alone, that is, lead single’s life, you are bound to decorate it the way you feel it is right, and make it feel warm and welcoming when you come home.
We all know that there are some stereotypes, and when someone shows us a picture of an apartment we would immediately know if there is a girl living in it or a guy. When you were in college, the only difference was that boys’ room was always messier and full of junk and dirty plates, whereas girls always keep their rooms fresh and clean, with the smell of vanilla in the air from one of those scented candles and sticks.
When they grow up and get their own places, both guys and girls spend a little bit more time and imagination when it comes to decorating their home to suit them, their needs, and personality.
In a bachelor’s apartment, you are bound to see more darker tones, from the walls, hardwood floors to furniture, and it is probably because one of the stereotypes that start as early as ‘baby boys wear blue and baby girls wear pink’. That is why a guy will always have black, grey, dark brown or olive things surrounding him, making him feel manlier.
Even though you are a guy, if you are a true bachelor at heart, you will always look neat and polished, and your wardrobe will have to be full of high quality suits. Trust me, a good walk in closet is not just for girls.
The most important thing every guy needs is a corner in his apartment where he will keep his gaming gear, with a comfortable couch where he can lay back, relax, take a joystick in his hands and stare at the screen all day. Here he will spend a lot of time with his other single friends, but also invite the ones who have already tied the not, but are looking for an hour break from the real life.
On the other hand, girls will have livelier colors in their apartment. They are much bolder with colors, and if it is not on the walls, then there are a lot of red, yellow, orange and pink details that give the space that warm feeling.
In a girls apartment you will always have that one corner with comfortable couch with a coffee table in front of it, where they gather with their gal pals for a regular Sunday gossip session. There will be many cushions, colorful covers on the furniture, and most commonly flowers or scented candles on the table.
In a single girl’s bedroom you will find the most comfortable bed ever, covered with colorful linens, and way too many cushions. Above the bed, if there are not any shelves with books, then she will undoubtedly decorate it with interesting pictures and paintings.
And like in the guy’s apartment, girl will also dream of having a big walk-in closet filled with designer clothes, shoes, and accessories. She will need a big mirror so she could try out different clothes and combinations when preparing for a night out with her single girlfriends.
Probably one thing that will differ the most when it comes to girl vs. guy’s place is the bathroom. Men tend to have only the most necessary things like shampoo, shaving cream, razor, perfume and maybe, but just maybe, some would have a comb. However, in a girl’s bathroom you are bound to find a lot of different beauty products, and a guy could not identify at least half of them.
Things change as we grow up, and stereotypes that say how guys do not worry about their looks, or design of their apartment break. Both girls and guys spend a lot of time thinking about decorating, the only difference is color, the amount of details used for decorations, and how they spend their free time in there with their friends.
