Thinking of buying that condo for sale along EDSA and turning it into a swanky bachelors pad?
If you’re ready to transition from a college boy lifestyle into life in the fast lane, then here are 5 tips on how you can prevent your man cave from looking like a bat cave. After all, a true gentleman knows that keeping a house isn’t just a lady’s job.
Invest in real furniture
The first thing that you should do for your modern man cave is to invest in real furniture. Gone are the days of the all around futon, because now you actually have the income and the space for real furniture. Look for practical pieces that convey your sense of style and function. If you’re working with limited space, make the most of dual purpose pieces. If budget is a concern, you can always get into refurbishing.
Keep your space clutter free
Just because you have your own condo doesn’t make it okay to turn your living area into a pig sty. Just imagine what your guests will think when they see the clutter everywhere. Go against the male stereotype and actually put effort into keeping your condo clutter free. Set aside a few minutes every morning to make sure that everything is in their rightful place before you leave for work. It’s small habits like this that will help you keep order.
Have a fully functional kitchen
Even if cooking isn’t really your thing, you need to have a fully functional kitchen to survive. Make sure to have the basics around like pots, pans, knives, plates, and whatnot. Don’t just rely on a microwave and rice cooker to get those instant meals ready. Work on creating your very own specialty dish. And the only way that you’ll be able to whip up your own culinary delights is by having a real kitchen.
Know the basics of home repair and maintenance
Men, there is nothing sexier than a man who knows how to do minor repairs. Go beyond changing a light bulb and work your way to unclogging a sink or getting your electrical fixed. Not only are you going to save cash on doing simple repairs yourself, but it’s also going to earn you some serious ‘pogi points’ with the ladies.
Keep it clean
Last but not the least, always make sure that your condo is clean. Part of growing up is knowing how to take care of your own place so it’s important that you have one day each week to do your cleaning. Vacuum the floors, put away your laundry neatly, keep your bathroom spic and span – these are all things that a real man should know how to do on a regular basis. If you have time to go out with your friends for drinks on the weekend, you have time to clean your condo.
