Having a special room where you can just play and have fun all day seems like a bachelor dream’s come true. But don’t let that thought fool you. There’s nothing wrong with having a game room when you’re a family man or in pretty much any other case. In time we’ve gathered some amazing game room ideas which we shared with you on occasion. It’s now time for some fresh ideas so let’s see what we have for you today.
All pool tables are more or less the same, or so you’d think. But that’s only true while you’re looking at classical tables. There are plenty that stand out and break the pattern. This one, for instance, from Teckell, is quite unusual. The design stands out with its form, material palette as well as details such as the perfectly stretched cloth that provides a flawless surface, the soundproof polyurethane layer below that or the custom and highly flexible polyurethane pockets which can hold three balls and then return to their original shape.
Foosball tables are classic game room furniture pieces. However, they’re usually not the most stylish things you can put in there. That’s when unusual designs come into play, designs such as the 90° Minuto from Teckell. This is a foosball table with lots of charm. Its design is simple and chic, putting an attractive spin on the traditional models. The tapered Canaletto wood legs give the table a luxurious look. The table also has a gorgeous crystal top.
This is another wonderful table that basically reinvents the classic game of foosball, giving it a stylish edge. The Cristallino table is an exclusive work of art. Created using modern technology and design techniques, the table has a clear glass structure with beveled corners. The players are made of aluminum, one team featuring a shiny chrome finish while the other has a dark nickel finish.
If you’re looking to get more than just your usual pool table for your classic game room, Design Billiards has some really interesting things to offer. Some of their designs offer unique features that no other billiard table has. For instance, the luxury models are fully customizable and modular and some can double as dining tables, meaning that you don’t really need a separate game room and you can just put them in your living room.
MBMBiliardi is also a top name when it comes to luxury pool tables and everything related. One of their products is the Ziggurat table which takes inspiration from pyramids. Another gorgeous piece is the B_ig which stands out thanks to its simple and sculptural design. Other designs such as the Class or the Bruzelles impress with their architectural charm, soft lines and sinuous curves.
This luxurious and glamorous piece of furniture/ accessory is the Blacklight, an amazing and unique pool table with a few very intriguing characteristics. It has a one-of-a-kind shape which would be enough to make it stand out. In addition to that, it can be configured and customized down to the smallest details. You can even opt for the overhanging top which lets it double as a dining table.
Modularity can also be a characteristic of the Megeve billiard table, if you choose to add a tabletop that is. In any case, the table is customizable from start to finish, ensuring that each piece is unique. First, you get to choose the type of wood and the finish, then the feet and after that you can get creative and cover your table in leather for a touch of originality. The design itself is simple.
Meet the New Vintage table, a wonderful materialization of contrasting styles and design details. The table has a unique and easily recognizable design and a memorable style which blends modern and traditional elements with sober and original accents. The result is an unusual harmony. Notice the striking contrast between the reclaimed wood body and the industrial metal frame and the way everything can be hidden under a solid top.
Sure, pool tables are fun but they’re also pretty common so you might want to opt for something different if you want your game room decor to really stand out. One way to be a bit original is to choose a ping pong table instead. It has more or less the same size as a pool table but it’s a whole different story. So where would you look for a ping pong table that looks elegant?Well, James de Wulf has some pretty great designs you should have a look at.
Chess is a really old game and its history goes back almost 1500 years. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s outdated. In fact, that will probably never happen so if you want a chess table for your game room you don’t have to worry about being trendy or out of style. Something like this is timeless and vintage and antique designs are always appreciated.
Whatever type of table you choose for your game room, make sure it’s a quality piece and, if possible, take modularity and multifunctional designs into consideration. Pool or ping pong tables can easily double as dining table and something smaller like a chess table can double as a cocktail table.
Of course, if you’re serious about having a game room that really stands out and makes you feel great, you might also enjoy vintage arcade games or pinball machines. You should check out the Games Room Company for really cool pieces and some inspiration for your space. As you collect stuff and your game collection gets bigger and bigger, the decor will start to take shape and will transform.
If pool tables or foosball tables are a bit too mainstream and vintage arcade games are a bit too serious for you, maybe a casino table would be just the thing your game room needs. Check out the Maxx Tables that impress with their simple and modern designs and wonderfully planned details.
And speaking of casino tables, we just found a really awesome piece. It’s a Casino Drum Table and it has four hidden drawers which can hold everything required for a great game night at the end of which everything can be concealed inside the table’s frame. The design is a mixture of modern and traditional and the table has a strong personality which allows it to fit nicely in a variety of settings.
