How to Make Your Place a Better Wingman

No matter how smooth you are with a woman, it can all fall apart if your apartment or home doesn’t play along. Just as your behavior needs to make her feel safe, comfortable and sexy, so does your place. Having sold high-end real estate in Southern California for the past several years, I’ve seen all manner of living arrangements, and the truth is that no matter your budget, a few simple changes can transform your place into the ultimate wingman. Whether you own or rent, here are 10 easy ways to spruce up your TV area, kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom. Stay true to your style, have fun…and don’t be surprised if your property value rises, too.

 

TV Area

Owners
The number one must for any TV area is a surround sound system with a flat screen mounted on the wall. Bulky speakers and wires everywhere can be very distracting when watching TV. An integrated surround sound system will not only give you a great TV experience, but your dates will want to get extra close during those intense action scenes.

Renters
The last thing you want to do as a renter is start drilling through walls, unless you want to lose your security deposit when your lease terminates. My best advice is to create a relaxing environment with a double-sided ottoman. This serves as a coffee table and a footrest. Comfort is everything, especially when making a first impression.

 

Kitchen

Owners
I encourage anyone who owns a property to spend their money smartly when updating their home. Believe it or not, you actually can update a kitchen for a very reasonable price. Stainless steel appliances are key, as everyone likes a very clean, sleek look. I recommend Bosch appliances, as they are energy efficient. The ladies will see that you care about being green and will want to stay home and cook dinner as opposed to eating out. The rest is up to you.

Renters
To make your home an entertaining venue for friends and dates, The Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker is a must-have. Your friends will coin your pad the official home for Monday Night Football, and the ladies will get extra excited when you invite them back for drinks.

 

 

Dining Area

Owners
A custom-made diner booth and tabletop is a great addition to any dining area. It gives a home personality and your guests will enjoy hanging in this casual yet relaxing space.

Renters
As a renter, a great way to enhance your dining area is to compliment the space by spicing the mood with wet bar furniture—also known as “places you can store booze.”


Bathroom

Owners
A small flat screen in the master bathroom is a smart idea for any homeowner. Your girl will definitely want to relax in the tub with you while watching your favorite movie. Or her favorite movie. Let’s not be picky here.

Renters
An iPod docking station is a great accessory for any bathroom. Listening to music while getting ready will pump you up for a night on the town, and a woman certainly won’t mind hearing her favorite tunes while you are, say, helping her soap up.

 

Bedroom

Owners
No bachelor wants to interrupt a special “moment” in bed to dim the lights. Make sure to invest in a wireless lighting system you can control via your smart phone. Trust me, guys, it’s worth it.

Renters
Apple TV for just under $100 is an excellent addition to any bedroom, as you can stream movies and listen to your favorite iTunes playlist. This will instantly set the mood for a memorable evening.
