Inspiring before and after bachelor pad

A bachelor’s apartment needs to be simple and comfortable. It doesn’t need unnecessary details or decorations and it also doesn’t need to be extra cozy. We have here a project that will help you visualize better these facts. This is a living room that got a makeover. It includes sleek and slim elements that make the room inviting but also imposing. The old TV stand suddenly didn’t seem like a very good idea for this room. Instead, the TV was mounted on the wall and this required drilling big holes in the wall. This way all the cables were hidden and the room was clean and clear.

The living room also got stylish IKEA cabinets. They have a wall panel system that minimized the number of holes required in the walls. The whole renovation process took three and a half weeks. The result was surprising and rewarding. The project required extra planning. Every little detail needed to be carefully considered and all the pieces had their own place.

The living room got a practical shelving system on the wall and all the electronics have their own place while also allowing room for future expansion components. Surround sound speakers were also mounted to the panels. The room has plenty or storage space in the cabinets and on the shelves. This ensures a clean and airy look.{found on apartmenttherapy}.
