Men when it comes to home interiors are more straightforward in knowing and wanting what they want and need. Their choices are succumbed towards practicality hence style and trends. While every home is different from its needs for interior pieces, there are just simple home staples that a man prefers to see at his own home. Elle Decor discusses ten things about this on their article .

1. A PLACE TO SIT AND EAT (THAT'S NOT A COFFEE TABLE)

A "small scaled table" lower than a dining table is suggested for a more comfy eating and relaxing experience.

2. A BEAUTIFUL CHEST OF DRAWERS

For smaller homes, this option can be "a great investment piece." Oliver Furth suggests to never skip "quality."

3. A RISK

While men are not risk-takers when it comes to design, it would be hard for them to choose "bold" designs for their home. There are just a least no. of them choosing "bolder" designs.

4. A DESK THAT'S PART OF YOUR HOME-NOT SQUIRRELED AWAY IN A HOME OFFICE

Miller suggests a "multitasking" and "stylish" desk to incorporate a great piece that also is functional for work.

5. WHITE SHEETS

"Percale" is a great option for this. Furth says that "white sheets" are always get a "very clean" feel and also are a "great investment."

6. A WELL-DEVELOPED LIBRARY

Great pieces of books in your bookshelves adds in "texture and personality" according to Geller.

7. SOMETHING ELSE IN THE ROOM WITH YOUR TV

Making the TV part of the setting. Adding pieces such as crisp furniture, collection of periodicals or books, great fixtures along with the TV.

8. A BATHROOM THAT'S YOUR SANCTUARY

Geller said that men loves bathroom that has amenities which are comforting. Examples of which are "shower bench," "well-placed mirror," "plush bath mat" while for high-end customers, the options are "a steam room," "radiant floors" and "jets in the shower."

9. LIGHTING OPTIONS

A lighting option that is used appropriately in parts/areas of the house. Like a lighting that can brighten and dim at the same time are to be placed in the kitchen. While a flattering light is great placed in the bedroom and the dining room. Functional lights on the other hand are needed in the living room and bathroom.
