In an uncertain world, one of the underlying truths that anchor possibility to reality is that consulting two interior designers will always result in two very different plans. So strong is this rule that by the time you increase the number of designers consulted to five or more you are well on the way to understanding the principles of quantum physics.
The trouble is that a home is a multi level three dimensional space and by the time you’ve looked at walls, floor, ceiling, colour, fabric and contents, even on a modest budget there are an infinite number of variables. Most homes finish up being an amalgam of taste, practicality and style; effectively a fusion of inhabitants and their lifestyles.
When it comes to designing a masculine interior for a home, the same rules apply. Whilst the glib answer may well be that the prime rule for male interior decor is the relationship between size of TV and distance to sofa, in truth the same rules apply whether designing for one man or a large group of people or family.
Ignoring budget considerations, top of any interior design decision tree is the question of who is actually going to be using the space. One person living alone who is immersed in their work and only uses the home to eat and sleep in will have very different needs from the single male who regularly invites the entire team back after football. In the first instance, prime considerations will be ease of use of kitchen appliances and a restful bedroom. In the second, lots of comfy sofas, a robust carpet that will stand up to party wear and a games room might be on the menu.
