A Bachelor House Absolute Must-Haves

Written by Posted On Wednesday, 26 June 2019 04:02

Give a man the basement, and he will turn it into a liveable place with a TV and a sofa that is good enough for sleeping - the rest is not so important. True, men can live in accommodation with minimum conveniences. But a true bachelor pad needs a little more than a TV and a sofa. 

It is the 21st century and we do not lack supplies that make our lives easier. And that is what 9 out of 10 bachelors want - simplicity and minimum effort in the house. So, without further ado, let’s go over some of the must-haves that make a great bachelor pad. 

A High Table That Looks Like a Bar

  • We should totally buy a bar!

Take it from the two greatest bachelors of all time, at some point you are going to want a bar. While buying one is a bit of an extreme, you can definitely have your own bar in your house. All you need is a high table, bottles of your favorite alcohol, glasses and voila, you have got yourself a bar. 

High tables that resemble a bar are great not only for Friday nights but they are also very comfortable for quick breakfasts, lunches, and dinner. If the apartment is small (say a studio) then a high table can help you save space and separate the kitchen from the living room.

Smart Home Gadgets

A new smart home gadget is most probably entering the market as you read this article. It’s hard to keep up and analyze whether or not you actually need that product. It is still up to you to do the research and decide but here are our suggestions:

A Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

I’ll go out on a limb and say that you don’t like chores, especially the ones involving cleaning. Dishwasher, washer, and dryer are certainly good assets for a bachelor. It’s time you add a robotic vacuum cleaner to that bundle. Clean floors with zero effort, now, that’s THE dream!

A Virtual Assistant

The most known one is Amazon Alexa but any other brand that you find convenient will do the job. Virtual assistants are kind of new La-Z-Boy that every bachelor house should have. Virtual assistants can serve as speakers, newspapers, weather forecasts and more. 

Smart Coffee Makers

Yes, it’s a thing now. Smart coffee makers can be synced with your phone and you can make your morning coffee from your bed, through your phone. Definitely, a must-have!

A Lot of Shelves and Drawers

You don’t want to clean your house every day but you’d still like to have neat rooms? An easy solution is to have as many shelves and drawers as you can fit in the room without making it look stuffed. 

There will be a place for everything you have and nothing will be on the floors, counters or on your bed. You don’t have to keep your drawers super organized, just assign them categories, so you’ll know what is where. 


Gone are the times of toolboxes. We live in the century of “one item, multiple functions.” So, all you need to have in your house is a multi-tool. They come in different forms, shapes, and functionalities that you need to look at and pick the one that suits your lifestyle. 

A good multi-tool will cost you anywhere between $60 and $100 but it will spare you the cost of buying multiple tools. Get one, keep it in hand and find everything you need in one place. 

A Decent Chair

Last but not least, a chair - the most important piece of furniture in a bachelor pad. The choice of the chair depends on your hobbies and after-work activities. For example, if you like gaming then you should invest in a good gaming chair. But if you like watching TV then you need something like a La-Z-Boy. It’s your bachelor pad and your chair, so it can be as fancy or as comfortable as you want. 

The list of bachelor house must-haves can go on and on but you should really keep it simple and convenient.
