Amazing Game Room Designs
The kitchen may be the heart of the home, but the game room is the hub for fun central. The best game rooms are engaging, versatile and easily set up for your specific needs. Whether your tykes are into arts and crafts, or you host a weekly poker night, your game room can be your go-to space. Recreation or relaxation, it’s all up to you.
Here are some ideas to help you get going on your inspired game room:
Who doesn’t love movie night? Turn your game room into a mini theater with movie posters on the walls, comfy seating and a popcorn machine. Add a compact refrigerator for cold drinks and candy. Grown ups and kids alike will love this movie room setting, but it might prove especially nice for kids to host sleepovers. Grab some sleeping bags and pillows; the tots will be set for the night and at least seven viewings of “Frozen.”
Turn your game room into an actual game room. Think about plentiful storage solutions like DIY shelving or built-ins for housing family favorites like Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble®. Make sure you have a roomy table with plenty of cushioned chairs for all of your family or guests. Create a perfect space for watching the big game or playing video games with a large screen television and appropriate seating. Kids may enjoy lounging on slouchy bean bag chairs. Or, push the furniture aside, and make room for a Wii Sports tournament. For more ideas, check out our Man Cave Pinterest board.
For a tranquil getaway right in your own home, transform your game room into a comfy lounging area. Make room for overstuffed couches or other cushy seating to keep everyone comfortable. Think about an oversized chair for ultimate lounging or seating to read storybooks together. Go soft with plenty of plush throws, blankets and pillows. Enjoy your favorite TV shows, or listen to music you like via a home entertainment system. Keep calm, and carry on.
For adults or teens, a more sophisticated game room vibe is in order. Consider a billiards table or poker table as the centerpiece, and include a wet bar. For teens, opt for an air hockey or Ping-Pong table and a small self-service bar with sodas and snacks. Keep a deck of cards and games such as Yahtzee available, and dial up the competition on family game night.
