A man’s room vs a woman’s room: interior design tips and ideas

Men and women are very different, some might say even opposites. It’s not anural for their rooms to be different as well. Even though men tend to have priority in this case with their man caves, a woman also needs her privacy, a place where she can be herself. Let’s what exactly defines a man’s room in comparison with a woman’s room and how you can successfully adapt these ideas.

The man room or man cave

We’re all familiar with these terms. We also know that most men get scared when hearing the word “decorating”. Still, a man needs to decorate his “cave” so whether he replaces this term with the word “planning” or “designing” the idea remains the same. A man’s room needs to be first of all well-planned and organized. The man cave can be anything from an office, a study to the basement of your home.

It’s a space where a man can relax and enjoy himself, where he can read, write or share beers with his friends.When decorating a man’s room you have to think of quality and comfort. If you want to furniture to last more than just a couple of year, maybe you should consider buying vintage furniture. The style suits a man and the quality it offers or superior to the one offered by current manufacturer standards. The furniture you choose then needs to be comfortable.

There are a few items that a man’s room needs. One of them is the sofa. Something covered in leather and with a timeless look would be perfect. The shelving is also important. There you can store things like books or collections.

The room also needs a coffee table. Even though it might seem like a girly item, the coffee table can also be a great place to rest your feet after a hard day at work. And we saved the best for last: the lounge chair. This is definitely a must-have. A leather lounge chair will last for years, not to mention that it’s extremely comfortable. Finally, a man’s room also needs some wall decorations. These need to be personal things, such as collections, trophies or a particular item that the user really likes.

The woman’s room

If a man can have his own space, a woman has the right to do the same thing. If for the man the key words were quality and comfort, for a woman there words are style and elegance. Not every woman falls in the same category that describes them as delicate creatures that love the color pink and usually stay home taking care of the children. Each woman is different and thus needs to personalize her space in her own way.

A woman’s room needs to be, first of all, relaxing. It should be like a sanctuary where she can retreat whenever she needs to regroup herself or to simply take some time for herself. This room can be a study, a studio or any other space. It doesn’t even need to be a room. For example, some people enjoy to spend time on the terrace or in the balcony, admiring the trees and the little people walking on the street, looking at the sky and the clouds.

This space should be decorated with the color that you like best. It needs to reflect your personality and your character. Try to figure out your style and to choose furniture and accessories that represent you. You can include there items such as your favorite books, magazines, some paint and brushes if you like to paint or any other items that you can use for your hobby. Try not to fall pray to stereotypes and try to be original and creative.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8}.
