The Ultimate Game Room
Game rooms or dens are an often-coveted feature of homeowners. Providing a fun and relaxed environment separate from the other rooms of the home, a game room can offer dwellers a play to kick back, socialize, and partake in some friendly competition. Here’s how to create the ultimate game room in your home today.
Plethora of Games – From board games, to cards, to dominos, to pinball machines. Make your game room a game room. Adding activities the whole family will enjoy will create a space inviting to all.
TV – What better way to spend time in the game room than watching a game! Find a TV that fits the space and set up some seating around it. Kick back and enjoy your favorite team take on their rivals in an area designated for some loud cheering!
Comfortable Seating – Nothing draws a crowd more than a comfortable couch or seat to sink into. Invest in some cozy chairs or brighten the space with a unique couch. Consider lighter pieces that can be easily moved when the room is full or to circle around different items in the room (TV, pool table, bar, etc.)
Bar – For adults, a bar is always a huge perk in a game room. Whether it becomes the main focus or just an understated accessory, having a bar stocked with alcohol, mixers, glasses, and garnishes is great paired with some stools or chairs around a game.
Memorabilia – What better way to liven up your game room than with memorabilia on the walls? Put up pennants or pictures of your favorite team. Hang old artwork from vintage games. Have fun with it! A game room is meant to be fun!
Lighting – Many people create game rooms in unused attics or basements. Be sure to think about lighting in these spaces that often do not have adequate natural lighting. Recessed lighting in the ceiling is always helpful or place floor lamps in corners to provide the light you need for a game night in.
Game rooms are a great way to bring people together for some laughs and entertainment. Build your ultimate game room up over time or dive right in. Put your own personal touches on it to create a space that is unique to you and allows you to unwind in a fun way.
