How to design a game room

Everyone has that one room in their house that doesn’t get used for anything. Make use of yours by turning it into a fun game room for the whole family!

Measure out the size of your room

Once you know the square footage of the room, you can determine how much you can fit into it. Create a wish list for what you want to have in your room, then once you determine what fits then you can buy your items.

Entertaining layout

The layout of your room will determine how effectively your game room will serve its purpose. Separate your tv and couches from the games like a ping pong table, pool table, etc.

Adequate lighting

When playing games, you must be able to see clearly to make the best move.  Arrange for lights to be installed over your tables and countertops.

Advantageous furniture

When designing your game room, the furniture you choose will affect the vibe of the room. Gamer chairs will allow you to create a room perfect for video games. If you have game tables, bar stool chairs or couches are good options to allow others to watch while people are playing the games.

Wall accessories

For a sports bar theme, buy some neon lights, fathead stickers from your favorites teams, and more! Add in a scoreboard on the wall for whatever games you purchase.

Soundproof your space

Playing all sorts of games can create a lot of noise for people in other rooms. Soundproof your game room to be courteous to others in the house.

Small games

Everyone loves the big game tables like foosball and ping pong, but don’t forget about little games too. A dart board or even a deck of cards is the perfect addition to any game room, without taking up any space.
