Setting Up Your First Bachelor Pad

Setting Up Your First Bachelor Pad

Living single is a hot topic these days. The whole concept of a Bachelors Pad has been around for decades - it’s a staple of TV shows and movies, and it usually involves a great number of pizza boxes and general messiness. Fear not - it doesn’t have to be that way! 

If you’re the bachelor (or bachelorette) in question, or if you’re simply trying to help your favorite singleton set up their first apartment, there are some awesome ways to employ one of the hot metallic finishes - stainless steel. Not only does it blend handsomely with a variety of decor schemes, it’s tough enough to stand modern life, with all its messiness and gear. 

 

So, What’s Your Bachelor Style? 

You could be setting up a tiny home, a loft, or an apartment, but your style is your own. For your first solo living space, think about what you want from your home base. Deciding on your personal likes and needs will help you choose everything from sofas to storage. 

 

I Need an Oasis of Calm 

If the rest of your life is a whirlwind of activity, and you long for a space that is a self-cleaning refuge of tranquility - stainless steel is your new best friend. Although it doesn’t clean itself, it’s unbeatable for its ability to resist all kinds of abuse and stay looking fresh with little maintenance. 

If you’re lucky enough to already have stainless steel appliances, adding some shelves to your kitchen or laundry space will increase your storage without taking up precious counter space. Stainless steel shelves are terrific for handling bulky items like laundry soap, extra linens and bulk food items - and they are easy to wipe down and keep clean. 

If your closets are a bit lacking in storage space, our closet shelf brackets are a quick and attractive way to add both shelving and room for hanging clothes. Simply add the shelf and dowel rod in the length you desire, and you’ve multiplied your options.

Overall, one of the best ways to avoid clutter is to keep things up and off the floor, and easy to find when you’re in a rush to get out the door. Adding shelving is the easiest way to achieve this.

 

I Want to Express Myself 

Your first real place is a great opportunity to find your look and show off your interests. Whether your hobbies extend to music and instruments, building your own urban jungle, or just expanding your personal library, our floating shelves are a perfect way to display your favorite things. 

Clean edges and a look that doesn’t compete with your prized possessions are just a couple of the features that makes stainless steel floating shelves desirable. We also have shelves that will fit almost any configuration of your home - and that will allow you to use your space effectively. 

You’ll never have to worry about dampness, corrosion, or scratches on stainless steel. It will handle your favorite potted cacti, pieces of pottery, or your collection of antique oil cans with no problems and the strength of steel.

 

I Need to Get Organized 

Does your new place have lots of charm, but little storage? This is a common problem with first apartments. Take a page from your favorite home designers and start sizing up your home for missed storage opportunities. 

Commonly missed spots are around the kitchen, in the bathroom, and anywhere there’s open wall space. And, you don’t need to sacrifice style for storage. When you use our shelf brackets to create custom shelving, you aren’t limited to any one configuration. You’ll still be able to hang up your oversized artwork, and arrange your shelves around it. Likewise, our picture ledges can provide a smaller, secure spot to highlight a favorite piece in a place of honor. 

If you have little closet space and need to work with open shelving solutions, stainless steel is attractive, blends well with any decor, and is ready for any application. It handles heat, damp and hard use in any room of your home, and is so long-lasting that you’ll be able to take it to your next home - and the one after that. 

Stock up on good-looking bins and containers, and you may find that open shelves are the best thing that has ever happened to your lifestyle. They keep everything at hand, easy to locate, and are easy to quickly organize -and their smooth surface makes them easy to rearrange. 

No matter what your style, bachelor and bachelorette living can be improved with the help of strong, easy-to-maintain stainless steel. It’s one of the best-kept secrets to improve your life, and our products will help you express your personality and organizational skills with a variety of styles. Even if you’re just starting out with a touch of stainless in one of our shelf bracket sets or a picture ledge, you’ll find out why this material has become a classic design staple.
