Men’s Bedroom Designs: How to Create a Guy-Friendly Space
When it comes to designing a bedroom, many people think that it should be a feminine space. But what about men? Let us guide you on your search for men’s bedroom ideas.
Men have just as much of a right to have their own designated space in the home, and that space should reflect their personal style. In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to create a guy-friendly bedroom that he will love!
What color palette should I use when planning men’s bedroom ideas?
There are a few colors that work well when it comes to designing a man’s bedroom.
One of those colors is black. Black is a very masculine color, and it can make the space feel more powerful and dramatic.
Another color that works well for men’s bedrooms is gray. Gray is a great neutral color that can help to create a calming and relaxing space.
This grey color from Behr is also a great choice for a masculine bedroom. The color is called Shark Fin.
And last but not least, white is also a good choice for a man’s bedroom. White is clean and fresh, and it can help to make the space feel more open and airy.
Our men’s bedroom idea
For our design ideas, we selected black and white. The black paint is from a selection of blacks from Behr and is just called ‘Black.’ Be aware of what type of finish you are aiming for. The white is ‘Ultra White’ also from Behr.
For both colors, we went for an eggshell finish. Gloss could be too overpowering, and matte may be a little dull, so something with just a hint of a sheen worked in this man’s bedroom idea.
What is an eggshell paint finish?
An eggshell paint finish is a soft, velvety finish that is often used in a bedroom or a living space. It is a popular choice for those who want to create a warm and inviting space. It is also great for creating a focal point and using the dark color palette for just one wall.
Eggshell paint finishes are easy to clean and maintain, making them a great choice for busy households. If you are looking for an eggshell paint finish, be sure to ask your local paint store for recommendations.
Wood paneling for walls
Also, with our bedroom design, we have created a section with wood paneling to create a casual seating/reading area.
Wood paneling will add a touch of warmth to the area and is a lovely addition when placed over a black wall. We created this same paneling in our design ideas for Industrial Lounge – check out the blog post. The wood is warm teak and has clean lines.

How do you attach wood paneling to a wall?
Wood paneling can add a touch of luxury to any space, and it will look great in your men’s bedroom ideas; it is also relatively easy to install.
To attach wood paneling to a wall, you will need a few tools and materials.
First, you will need to choose the type of wood paneling you want to use in the bedroom. There are many different types of wood paneling available on the market, so be sure to do your research before making a purchase.
You may like a lighter wood such as teak or prefer a dark wood like Mahogany; make your decision based on your color palette and the furniture you are purchasing.
Time to measure up the walls
Once you have chosen the type of wood paneling you want to use, measure the area where you will be installing it. Then, cut the paneling to size and attach it to the wall using nails or screws.
Be sure to use a level when attaching the paneling to the wall so that it is even and level. Once the paneling is attached to the wall, you can then add any trim or molding you desire.
How do you set up a man’s bedroom
Work your design around your existing floor covering unless you are thinking of upgrading. This should also apply when choosing your paint.
Once you have these elements in place, you can start adding furniture to your men’s bedroom ideas.
How to select a bed for a man’s bedroom
When it comes to choosing a bed for a man’s bedroom, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
The size of the bed
First, consider the size of the space. If you have a small bedroom, you may want to choose a twin-sized bed. If you have a larger bedroom, you may want to choose a full-sized or queen-sized bed.
The style of the bed
You should also consider the style of the bed. For example, if you want a more traditional look, you may want to choose a bed with a headboard and footboard. If you want a modern look, you may want to choose a bed without a headboard or footboard.
And last but not least, be sure to consider the budget you have for the bed. There are many different beds available on the market, so be sure to shop around and compare prices before making a purchase.
our design ideas
Within our mood board design, we have incorporated a bed with just a headboard. This particular bed is Queen size and is finished in dark brown faux leather.
There is a small footboard with this bed, and box spring is not required. For further details, visit Walmart. Priced at just $305.54
The pros and cons of faux leather
Faux leather is a popular material that is often used in furniture and upholstery. It is made to look like real leather, but it is actually made from synthetic material.
The material has a number of benefits that make it a popular choice for many people.
One of those benefits is that it is more affordable than real leather. It is also more durable, so it is a great choice for those who want furniture that will last for many years.
However, there are some drawbacks to the material as well. One of those drawbacks is that it does not breathe as well as real leather, so it can be uncomfortable to sit on for long periods of time.
Additionally, it can be difficult to clean and care for.
If you are considering using faux material in your men’s bedroom ideas, be sure to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision.
How to clean a faux material bed
Faux leather furniture is a popular choice for many people because it is durable and easy to care for. However, it is important to know how to properly clean faux furniture.
The first step is to dust the furniture with a soft cloth. Then, you will need to mix a solution of soap and water. Be sure to use mild soap, such as dish soap.
Apply the solution to a clean cloth and wipe down the furniture. Be sure to rinse the cloth frequently so that you do not damage the material.
Once you have wiped down the furniture, you will need to dry it with a soft cloth.
Bedroom furniture and storage ideas
Within our men’s bedroom ideas, we also wanted to incorporate storage solutions. Obviously, we are not aware of whether you have any built-in wardrobes or other storage facilities, but we have included some in our design ideas.
The bedside table
We start with two simple bedside tables.
We chose this particular bedside table because it fits in perfectly with our men’s bedroom ideas. A strong grey color with a hint of brushed gold on the handle, no fancy lines, just strong lines, and masculine.
These units have a drawer for storage and a shelf for a book, colognes, etc. These are very reasonably priced at Ashley Furniture for just under $150 each.
Modern men’s wood furniture
Adding more storage to our guy’s bedroom, we located a dresser that actually matches the bedside table.
This modern men’s dresser has six smooth gliding drawers and is made from engineered wood and finished with a laminate. A great choice when considering the interior design as it fits within the decor and space beautifully.
For more details on the dresser, visit Ashley Home. Priced at $289.99
What is engineered wood?
Engineered wood is a type of wood that is made from multiple layers of wood veneers. The veneers are glued together under high pressure and heat to create a strong, durable board.
What are the benefits of engineered wood?
Engineered wood has a number of benefits that make it a popular choice for many people. One of those benefits is that it is more stable than solid wood.
Additionally, engineered wood is less likely to warp or cup than solid wood. Engineered wood is also available in a variety of thicknesses, so be sure to choose the right one for your project.
You will also need to decide what type of finish you want on your engineered wood. Some people prefer a natural finish, while others prefer a stained or painted finish.
What are the drawbacks of engineered wood?
Engineered wood does have some drawbacks. One of those drawbacks is that it can be more expensive than solid wood. Additionally, engineered wood is not as strong as solid, so it may not be the best choice for certain projects.
If you are considering using engineered wood in your home, be sure to weigh the pros and cons before making a decision.
What is an accent chair in a men’s bedroom?
An accent chair is a piece of furniture that can be used to add style and personality to a room. In a men’s bedroom, an accent chair can be used as a place to sit and relax or as a decorative piece.
When choosing an accent chair for a men’s bedroom, it is important to choose a chair that is comfortable and stylish. There are many different types of accent chairs to choose from, so be sure to take your time when selecting one.
When selecting an accent chair, you will first need to decide what type of chair you want. There are many different types of chairs to choose from, including recliners, armchairs, and lounge chairs.
Once you have selected the type of chair you want, you will need to select a style. There are many different styles of accent chairs to choose from, including traditional, contemporary, and mid-century modern.
In the interior design for our men’s bedroom idea, we picked a very sleek modern chair with a gold finish.
The gold finish was to complement the other items within the room, including the cabinetry, art, and lighting.
The Mira lounge chair has a deeply upholstered seat with matching cushions in a rich velvet fabric, adding a luxury feel to a men’s bedroom.
The chair measures 31.1W x 27.17D x 31.5H in. and will look great in the corner of a room, next to a floor-standing lamp. The chair will also look great in other rooms, such as a living room or an office.
How do you light a master men’s bedroom?
There are a few things to consider when lighting a master men’s bedroom.
Create a mood in a men’s bedroom
The first thing you need to do is decide what type of mood you want to create in the space. Do you want it to be a relaxing retreat or a more energizing space? Once you have decided on the mood, you will need to choose the right light fixtures.
The right light fixtures
For a relaxing retreat, you might want to choose soft, diffused lighting. For a more energizing space, you might want to choose brighter, more focused lighting.
You will also need to consider the size of the room when choosing light fixtures.
If you have a small room, you will need to choose smaller light fixtures. If you have a large room, you will need to choose larger light fixtures.
When choosing light fixtures, you will also need to consider the type of bulbs you want to use. LED bulbs are a popular choice because they are energy efficient and long-lasting.
However, they can be more expensive than traditional incandescent bulbs. If you are on a budget, you might want to choose incandescent bulbs.
Once you have chosen the right light fixtures, you will need to install them. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Once the light fixtures are installed, you will need to add light bulbs and turn on the power.
Finally, you will need to adjust the light fixtures to create the perfect lighting for your space.
Be sure to experiment with different heights and angles to find the perfect lighting for your master bedroom.
Our men’s bedroom ideas
For ceiling lighting, we have chosen a brushed brass semi-mounted ceiling light which has been designed with an industrial vibe. With the addition of vintage bulbs, it creates a perfect focal point in men’s bedrooms.
By just changing the bulbs, you can create a more modern look for your bedroom ideas.
This particular ceiling lighting fits well into the interior design and will add brightness to the room if needed.
For more subtle lighting, we have included two table lamps next to the bed.
The table lamps are again in brass which matches the materials in another lighting that we have chosen. The light is topped with a classic white drum shade and adds subtle accent lighting to the men’s bedroom ideas.
As we continue with the men’s bedroom, we also add additional accent lighting in the form of a floor-standing lamp.
Again our interior design features this light because it has a brass antique finish, matching the other lighting. The tripod design again adds an element of industrial design to the bedroom.

Soft furnishings for our men’s bedroom ideas
Any interior design bedroom ideas should feature soft furnishings. These accessories soften any hard areas, like a hardwood floor, dry-lined walls, etc.
For this men’s bedroom design, we want to add a rug to add some texture and contrast to the wooden floor.
This particular rug that we have chosen for our design has been inspired by a desert landscape. Made from polyester, it is around one inch thick and is very easy to clean.
The rug is available in a variety of sizes and is definitely a statement piece in any bedroom ideas for men. Shop the Look below and download your free Mood Board
How to clean a polyester rug
Polyester is a synthetic fiber that is often used to make rugs. Polyester rugs are durable and easy to care for. However, they can be difficult to clean if they become stained.
The first step in cleaning a polyester rug is to identify the type of stain. If the stain is fresh, you should try to remove it with a damp cloth. If the stain is dry, you will need to use a vacuum cleaner to remove it.
Once you have removed the stain, you will need to decide what cleaning solution to use. If the carpet is only lightly soiled, you can use mild detergent and water. If the carpet is heavily soiled, you can use a stronger cleaning solution. Be sure to test the cleaning solution on a small area of the carpet before using it on the entire carpet.
Once you have chosen a cleaning solution, you will need to apply it to the rug and scrub it with a brush. Be sure to rinse the rug thoroughly after scrubbing it.
drying the rug
Finally, you will need to dry the rug. You can either air dry it or use a fan to speed up the drying process. Once dry, you can vacuum it to remove any remaining dirt or dust.
Curtains come in all different sizes and styles. You can purchase curtains that are lined with the ability to totally black out a room, or alternatively, a sheer curtain that allows more light through. The decision is yours.
Our men’s bedroom features full-length black curtains as we are hanging these against a white wall.
These particular curtains come in a size of 52 inches by 82 inches and are semi-sheer faux silk. They also have grommets for easy hanging. Not great for blocking out light, but you can always purchase thicker curtains or install a blind to add an extra element to your window.
How to measure for curtains
When measuring for curtains, you will need to take several factors into consideration, including the size of the window, the type of curtain rod, and the type of curtains you want.
The first thing you will need to do is measure the width of the window. You will need to measure from one side of the window to the other. Once you have the width, you will need to add four inches to account for the curtains.
Next, you will need to measure the length of the window. You will need to measure from the top of the window to the bottom. Once you have the length, you will need to add four inches to account for the curtains.
Finally, you will need to decide what type of curtain rod you want. There are many different types of curtain rods to choose from, including tension rods and spring-loaded rods. Once you have decided on the type of rod you want, you will need to measure it.
Once you have all of your measurements, you will be ready to purchase your curtains. Be sure to measure twice to ensure that you have the correct measurements.
The ever so cozy fur throw
Soft, fluffy, and full of texture, this throw is an interesting choice in a men’s bedroom. It has a faux animal print on one side and a solid print on the reverse.
There are a variety of colors available, including grey, brown, and blue, and both sides feature the fur finish. The manufacturer boasts that the throw resists color fading, wear, tear, and stains, and you can even wash it in your washing machine on a cold wash.
The blanket measures at 50 inches by 65 inches, and our particular design features a chocolate-colored version. Add this to the bedroom ideas for men but still keep that masculine style.
Decor and wall art accessories
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The same applies to any pieces of decor you put in your men’s bedroom. Our decor and wall accessories are just items that we feel pull the room together.
Abstract Wall Art
For a strong masculine bedroom, you really need a strong piece of wall art. You may have chosen the wall art prior to starting your men’s bedroom idea.
The pieces we have selected are black and grey abstract pieces of art. Although not original, these do come on canvas and also need to be framed.
These three pieces can be positioned above the bed as a focal point in the bedroom and encapsulate the whole black, gold, and grey theme that is featured in this men’s bedroom idea.
Each piece is available at around $13 each, or buys all three from Walmart. More details can be found below in our Free Mood Board and Shopping List.
How to choose a piece of art for a room
Art can be a great way to add personality and style to a room. However, choosing the right piece of art for a room can be tricky.
There are many things to consider when selecting a piece of art, including size, color, and subject matter.
What size picture should I choose?
The first thing you will need to do when choosing a piece of art is to decide what size you need. You will need to measure the wall space where you plan to hang the artwork. Once you have measured the men’s bedroom space, you will need to select a piece of art that is the appropriate size.
What colors will look good in a men’s bedroom?
The next thing you will need to consider is color. You should choose a piece of art that complements the color scheme of the room.
If the room is mostly neutral, you can choose a piece of art with brighter colors. If the room has more vibrant colors, you can choose a piece that is more subdued.
How to pick a subject to fit your men’s bedroom ideas
Finally, you will need to consider the subject matter of the piece of art. You should choose a piece that fits with the overall theme of the room.
For example, if the room is decorated with a nautical theme, you could choose a piece of art that features a seascape.
When selecting a piece of art for a room, it is important to take your time and choose something that you love.
Additional accessories and decor
There are many different table accessories and decor you can include in your men’s bedroom ideas. Just remember not to overcrowd the areas.
You may want a selection of books, an alarm clock, or a case for watches and other jewelry items.
We have added some personality in the form of interior design decor.
The golden orb is an interesting piece that can be put anywhere, such as on shelving, a vanity unit, or on top of a stack of books.
This stylish piece measures 9 inches x 9 inches and not only adds a touch of glamour but still keeps in the masculine bedroom theme.
A very good price at just $12.99 from Walmart. So why not add it to your bedroom design.
A touch of greenery
Next up is a touch of greenery. You can choose a large artificial plant or a real small plant, whatever you are happy with looking after and maintaining. It will bring life to your bedroom design.
These plants have clean lines and are elegant, and do not require water. They come on a stylish bamboo tray and probably just needs a dust down every now and then.
The top of the plant to the bottom is about 6 to 6.5 inches and about 3 inches wide. Available at Walmart.
A decorative vase
Vases do not always have to contain flowers or grasses. An attractive vase can be left empty.
Choose a vase with an interesting design that fits in with your men’s bedroom.
Our particular choice to fit in with this men’s bedroom is a hand-carved mango tree vase made with a chevron design.
The vase stands about 14 inches in height and is a stunning contrast against the wall in the men’s bedroom.
The final design for our men’s bedroom ideas
Once all of the items have been put in place for our final design, you can see how the elements all work together, giving a lovely warm touch to this masculine bedroom.
