The Sofa is Always the Focal Point
Most guys spend their time on the sofa reading, working, chilling with friends, and even just stretching. You want it to be comfortable and big. For a bachelor pad, the ideal sofa is a leather seat. Let’s be honest, men don’t like cleaning. Getting a leather seat makes sense because it is easy to clean and has tough fabric which makes it durable and last longer.
Bring out your personality with the fabric
If you are a brooding or mysterious man, black furniture is ideal. For someone who is grounded, go for a traditional brown leather seat. If you are outgoing and approachable, dark linen and velvet will work well.
Create more seating space
The one thing you can never go wrong with a bachelor pad is having a sectional couch (joining two or more pieces together). The fewer pieces you have the cheaper it is to get this type of sofa. 2 important terminologies to remember about a sectional: RAF – Right Arm Facing which means that your arm is on the right side when you are facing the section. LAF – Left Arm Facing which simply means the arm is on the left side.
