Creating a Bachelor PadA great way to make a super tall room feel more intimate is to choose a dark paint color. If the room gets a lot of natural light you don't need to worry about it becoming too dark.
When placing furniture in a living room consider "floating" the furniture in the center of the room. This creates a more conversational area that will allow guests to enjoy each other without sitting on opposite sides of the room.
An integral part of a bachelor pad is the serving bar. To create an inexpensive bar area, simply pair a credenza with floating shelves. The credenza will conceal the bar stock and allow for a serving area. The floating shelves above allow for open glassware storage with easy access.
