Game room decor ideas

Movie lovers have home theatres, a library for bookworms, and what do gamers have? A creative game room. 

All you gamers out there, this one’s for you! Wouldn’t you want a space to call your own where you can game, rinse and repeat? You don’t need an entire attic or a basement to create your creative game room. An unused corner, a makeshift pool table, a wall can quickly become a gaming area. Many gaming enthusiasts take the opportunity of showcasing their love for popular books, movies and other forms of entertainment. Other game rooms are more traditional with board games, pinball machines and non-electronic games of yesteryears as part of it.  And some can be an extravagant video game room that’s fun to bits and cherished forever. Whatever your budget might be, there are ample ideas to design and decorate a gaming-inspired room. So use every chance to indulge freely in art design, fun colours, and plenty of collectables and memorabilia.

Install A Climbing Wall

When designing a game room, you must use every nook and corner such as the wall as seen in this image here. We all have that Spiderman moment where we try to climb walls isn’t it? So why not give your kids one they are allowed to climb on? A climbing wall is a fantastic project that will have your kids busy for hours. This room has put the corners to good use with a climbing wall installed. Various pops of colours make it visually appealing too. Just make sure there are adequate safety measures – throw in some fluffy cushions and pillows on the ground so your kids might not get hurt even if they fall.

Fancy A Card Game

Devote a section of the room to board and card games for a fun-filled family affair. A table in the kitchen or a living room can act as an area to indulge in some board game madness. If you fancy rolling some dice, it can serve as a poker tabletop as well. Green cloth on the tables, overhead lights, and a healthy stock of cards and poker chips can transform your card game into a scene straight out of a casino in Las Vegas.

Mini Foosball Anyone?

Want to get competitive with your friends and family? How about a mini foosball table right in your living room? It is an excellent game for many reasons and takes less space compared to a pinball machine. There is limited movement of the body as only the arms move during play. This means you do not need any extra space around the table. We can see how a mini foosball is kept in this living room that also acts as a coffee table. Smart isn’t it?

Chess Or Battle Of The Brain

A game of chess falls under the category of board games. Now, who doesn’t want to tickle their brains with a good strategy? A chess table may seem old school but is super practical. If you have a corner to spare and have no idea what to do with it, here is a cool idea. Set it up as a place for battle of the wits. As we can see in the image, two chairs and a chess table have been placed together. The space is accessorised with an old transistor giving it a bygone vibe.

A Gaming Setup In The Bedroom

The bedroom is the most comfortable room to set up a gaming area. If you have a spacious bedroom you can install a large television and your gaming consoles like Xbox or Playstations. You can now play in this video game room while resting in your bed. Lighting is crucial, so make sure you have a good source of illumination. As we can see in the image, this bedroom is a gaming haven. A big TV screen to play all your favourite games, floating shelves to display figurines, a comfortable bean bag and enormous windows for ample natural light.
