The Bachelor Pad/Man Cave

I recently read an article on the Eagle. It is one of the most outstanding animals on earth. It builds its nest on a rocky cliff using thorns, twigs and feathers. After its eaglets hatch, it slowly removes the padding of feathers and twigs until the grown chic cannot stand the thorns and finally learn how to fly.

We live in one, we’ve visited some and crushed in others…Let’s share about the bachelor pad.

It’s a Mantuary. I feel every man needs a place to retreat and kick back every once in a while. A lot of activities go on in the pad; from watching sports, playing video games and being on auto pilot lol.

I think this is a stage not to be missed by twenty-somethings. We can relate to the eagle and learn that our parents need us to be out there and be somebody. Move out! Hell Brad Pitt purchased a $1.13million bachelor pad recently (research has it that pads help sort out marriage issues too!)

Friends come together, unmarried men, students and the early-employed…and set up a sanctuary where they can live in as they wait to step up their living standards towards obtaining a more luxurious house.

What do you find in a bachelor pad?

The Man’s space is completed by awesome furniture, a bar, some piece of art; where the decoration is done by men with little to no female influence. A Hi-Fi complements the pad for entertainment and when comrades decide to throw a wild party.

We agree we didn’t accept the lady’s help hence things can be a little messy. By this I mean the occasional sight of old, moldy food in the fridge, dirty dishes in the sink, some dirty socks strewn about the floor etc.(Sharing the pad with  rommie can make the list endless)

We are not after a playboy mansion; it’s the comfort and freedom that we appreciate. A sanctuary. Tell us about your cave, memories and what is/was in it. Ladies, what are your takes? Share experiences in pads that you fortunately or unfortunately visited.

Cheers! *fist bump*

    I like the bachelor’s pad-minimalist in its decor, functional furniture and almost countable stuff in the pad. No teddies, overstuffed bathrooms, a million pillows on the bed and other knick-knacks you’d find in a ladies crib. But the dirty things strewn all over the pad is a bit of a damper
    That’s my take…

    I visited my pal’s pad recently and I loved, it had black seats and a niiice surround system-only! I think i’ll model mine after his when I get my own place 🙂

    When I move out, I’ll establish a bachelorette pad. Believe me, even women in their early to late twenties with no plans of marriage need their own space…but it could be a lil different than a bachelor pad. Overstuffed and overdecorated, ultra clean..I wouldn’t mind that.

    I like bachelor pads since they are an expression of freedom.However the occasional mess may ruin it but.. the HiFi and the parties should make up for it.

    I admire men who have their own space..they seem so responsible [well, despite the mess sometimes] *grin*

    a bachelors pad is a sanctuary for man. freedom is found in the cleanliness and simplistic design of a guys home…

    Savvy Ultraclean – thats the word.

    Guys we understand the cleaning bug does not bite everyone but all the same we don’t want to come to a smelly house. You gotta try.

    I miss the pad!
    some freedoms have to be sacrificed eventually

    Been to a couple of mantuaries and i have to say guys seem to be alot better at this interior decorating business. Theyve embraced the ‘less is more’ concept with great results. Girls, lets de-clutter.:-)
