Unbelievable Things Guys Think About Home Decor

A friend showed me his Persian rug (no, that’s not a euphemism) and asked if he should do the rest of the house in a “maroon theme.” I thought he must be an anomaly. I was wrong.

2. You Expect Us to Believe This When You Can't Put The Toilet Seat Down?



A clean guy's house means you don't have to spend time at her place with four other loud girls and bathrooms filled with make up bags and trash ( as all girls bathrooms are messy).

3. You're In Your 20s If...



Parents! Antiques; they will last longer than you (vs. Ikea) and they will hold their value, if not appreciate (unless you ruin them by having irresponsible late night parties. Not that that’s happened…)

4. Bo Be Gone!



Well, I have an apartment with an array of posters and great thrift shop furniture. Although, I did get my bed at Ikea. My favorite item? My Bo Derek poster... Or a poster of the skyline of Las Vegas. No, definitely my Bo Derek poster.

5. Positively Elementary



Well, I’m a bit off. My pad was more Sherlock Holmes bachelor pad with a fireplace always going than frat castle with a natty-light stained beer pong table.

6. Form and Function Don't Have To Be Mutually Exclusive



Leather. Wood. No modern/abstract art. Big TV. I have old man taste though. Functionality is key, I won't always go for the cheapest thing but price probably plays a bigger roll than what women are going to think of it.

7. The Rug Definitely Doesn't Match the Curtains...



I have lived in the same apartment since 2010 and I still have yet to hang a single poster/painting/curtain in my bedroom.

8. As Explained By A Corgi


Vincent: Minimal, yet functional. Once it's in, it's not moving.

9. Take This War and Stuff It...



When I was single, honestly, I didn't care. Actually, I still don't care, but my wife does. There's a constant war on decorative pillows. They're everywhere and I'm not allowed to lie on them.

10. At Least It Wasn't A Dog


There was a time when I really wanted plants around, but I couldn't keep them alive.

11. Appliances Do Not Count As "Decor."


Cushy leather recliner. 47' flat screen. Wine fridge. Outdoor grill.

12. I Had To Google "Fatheads."


The more Fatheads the better, see attached example. Artwork taken from neighbors trash always goes well alongside the Fatheads. American flags are a good way to cover up holes in the wall and show your patriotic side. I second the "dead animals" idea.

13. I'm Not Sure Who Should Be Offended Here...


Tom: As long as it doesn't look exactly like her mother's house, I don't care.
