Maintaining a bachelor pad is not an easy task. As the bachelor himself has declared many times on this site, there are certain key elements every bachelor pad should have. But I am here to tell you how to make and how to keep those elements presentable and stylish.
Gentlemen, there is no bigger turn off for a women who comes back to your place for a nightcap than seeing a disheveled apartment, a disorganized living area and a fortress of clothes in your bedroom. Style does not just encompass your clothing choices. Rather, it is the entire way you express yourself as a man; as a bachelor. It includes the music you listen to, the car you drive, the food you eat, and the way you keep your bachelor pad.

From her perspective, the first thing she will notice are the shoes she trips over while walking through your front door. Men, keep your shoes out of the foyer, but if you must keep them there due to lack of space, keep them very organized in a row against the wall or preferably in shelving completely out of the walk way. The next thing she will notice is your living room. Before you head out for the night, make sure the throws and blankets (a Bachelor Pad Essential) are folded, cushions are placed on either ends of the sofa, and all food and utensils are off the coffee table. But don’t just transfer them into the sink. Make sure all dishes are clean and put away. Remember, she wants to stare at you making her a drink, not the Jenga-like pile of dishes in the sink. Keep your closet organized with matching color wooden hangers (a Bachelor Pad Essential) and your shirts, slacks, blazers, etc. hanging neatly and straight. Never should anyone ever use a wire hanger to hang clothes. Invest in the wooden ones. They help keep the shape of the garment better, and won’t leave those pesky bubble-like wrinkles at the shoulder seam of your shirts. Lastly, your bed should be made neatly. Some are not as good as others in hospital corners – guilty as charged – so invest in a bed spread or coverlet. It covers the entire mattress almost to the floor. And men, add some. Grays, silvers, reds, and rich blues are great colors for multiple seasons. But at the same time, make sure she doesn’t have a flashback of her college dorm years with childish prints, team logos, and itch inducing fabrics. Lastly, keep your condom stash in a nightstand (a Bachelor Pad Essential) close to the bed so there is no need to get out of bed. Men, if there is a woman in your bed, stay there as long as you can. Don’t waste valuable minutes by walking to get your protection. And yes, gentlemen, having condoms in your bachelor pad is stylish. It lets the woman know that you are careful, that you are trustworthy, and that you are prepared. Being prepared means you are confident. Being confident helps your chances of getting lucky. And luck, my friends, is just preparation meeting opportunity. Keep that in mind the next time you head out for the night.
