When it comes to decorating the dining room for the bachelor space, they want stylish and multi-functional pieces that offer the right amount of space. The look should show off their masculine side, yet also be welcoming when he invites guests over for dinner or playing a poker game on Saturday night. The furniture should also offer the right amount of working surfaces without being overbearing and taking up too much room in the space. Here are several ideas for dining room furniture that will have men eager to invite guests over for a great meal and a fun time.
Dark wooden furniture gives that bachelor dining room that right amount of sophistication. Select a long wooden table with leather or upholstery padding on wooden chairs as it will nicely show off the room while also offering a comfortable place to sit. With the right pendant lighting or sconces, the room can look elegant for the romantic time with a sweetheart and then quickly change over to be practical for daily lifestyles.
Expandable tables work well in small bachelor room settings where space is limited. The table surface can be lengthened when you need more for dinner guests, parties or poker nights. Add a bench for additional seating as a table that seats four can easily be expanded to accommodate 6 people comfortably. After the guests go home, you can shorten the table and stow away the extra chairs to keep your bachelor pad neat and organized.
Some bachelor spaces simply don’t have a formal dining room. You can still create a dining room area for yourself so you aren’t standing in the kitchen eating over the sink or spilling food on the rug in the living room. Dinette sets work perfectly in that unused spot in the living room as you can have a nice place to eat your meals. It allows seating for 4 people as you can easily take away two chairs when you will be dining alone for the evening.
Nothing makes the meal complete without a nice drink to pair with your dinner. Home bars are becoming popular in bachelor pads as you can fix up your favorite drink the way you like it without having to deal with the noise of crowds at the local dive bar. Home bars come in varying sizes that can fit perfectly in the dining room. Match the look and color of the wooden bar with the dining room table and chairs to have a uniform look in the room.
