When it comes to creating a welcoming and inviting home, many men may feel unsure about what women want to see. However, the truth is that us ladies are just as diverse in our tastes and preferences as men!

That being said… 

There are certain elements that can make a man’s home more attractive to women. 

Here are some tips to get you started:

Cleanliness and Tidiness

Before clocking any decorating decisions, one of the most important things women want to see in a man’s home is cleanliness and tidiness. 

A clean home shows that you value your space and take pride in your surroundings.

Make sure your space is clutter-free and well-organized, and pay attention to details such as dusting and vacuuming.

Comfortable Furniture

Comfortable furniture is key to creating a welcoming and inviting space. 

Invest in a sofa or armchair that feels like heaven falling into it, and add soft furnishings such as cushions and throws. 

This will make your home feel cozy and inviting, and show guests that you value their comfort.

Personal Touches

Personal touches are important in creating a home that reflects your personality and style. 

Decorate with items that showcase your interests and hobbies, such as artwork, books, or (yes) sports memorabilia. 

Tasteful, thoughtful decor shows women that you are passionate and interesting, and gives them something to share with their friends later (“He had a framed Cindy Sherman print..I’m in love!”).

Quality Kitchenware

A well-stocked kitchen is essential in creating a welcoming home.

And we’re not talking about that pile of chicken breasts in the freezer that you keep meaning to meal prep with. 

Invest in quality kitchenware like beautiful wine glasses, sustainably sourced cloth napkins, or a really great coffee maker and cups that actually match. 

This shows women that you are capable and thoughtful, and also give you the ability to entertain should she decide to come back to your place after the next date.

Adding plants and greenery to your home can make it feel more alive and inviting. 

Choose easy-to-care-for plants such as succulents or snake plants, and add them to the rooms you spend the most time in.

The tl;dr?

Creating a home that is welcoming and attractive to women is about more than just following a set of rules or guidelines (even if these are some good tips, if we do say so ourselves!). 

It’s about creating a space that reflects your personality and style, while also being clean, comfortable, and inviting – for yourself and for others. 

By thoughtfully investing in your home decor, your home will inevitably make any woman feel comfortable and at ease.
