The best way to find game room ideas is to take a cue from your favorite activities and the things you do for fun. Every home needs a space where family members and guests can gather to spend quality time together, maybe play a board game, pool or compete with each other in video games or Kinect Adventures. Sure, the living room is nice if you want to chill and relax but for the type of activities we have in mind you’d need a game room or an entertainment area.
Multiple Functions In One Space.
by Ian Cummings Photography
A game room has to have a flexible design. It’s why you should try to include a variety of functions in one design. For example, there can be a foosball table in the center, a table for board games, a seating area for those that need to take a k and a variety of other features.
Give The Backyard Barn New Uses.
The game room doesn’t necessarily have to be a room in the house. For example, if you have a barn in your back yard, you can give it a makeover and use that as a meeting place for those that seek fun and relaxation.
Dedicated Play Areas.
You don’t necessarily need the whole room to have fun with your guests. You can create a dedicated play area as part of your living room or home office. A comfy banquette can fit perfectly in the corner. Add a simple table and you have the perfect spot for playing cards or board games.
A Room With Views Of The Mountains.
by Roger Wade Studio
What could be more beautiful than taking a break from your game of pool to admire the gorgeous views of the mountain? Build window nooks and seats to take full advantage of the views. A stunning design idea for holiday homes.
Cherry Wood Ceiling.
Create a relaxing and comfortable ambiance in the room with a wooden ceiling. Cherry wood has an especially beautiful color. It will make the room look bright but also cozy, the perfect balance and excellent for rustic decors.
Game Room And Theater In One Space.
by Jeri Koegel Photographer
Both a game room and a home theater are space where you meet with friends to spend time together, whether it’s playing games or watching a movie you have in mind. In a way, it makes sense to combine the two functions in one space. This way everyone can enjoy their favorite activity.
A Fish Tank In The Room.
If you only use game and entertainment-related features in the room, the décor can become a little too dynamic and somewhat disturbing. You also need something relaxing to balance out the design, something like a fish tank.
Around The Bar.
We’ve taken care of the main aspects related to game room design. The only thing missing would be a bar. Games and drinks go hand in hand. A home bar would tie everything together and the whole design would start to make sense.
