1. Use your space wisely
Pre-plan the space you have and how you’re going to use it. Decide what games, equipment and furnishing you’re going to have in your game room and establish the best layout for the room. Be careful not to have too many games and activities that will overcrowd the room and leave little space to move and play.
If you’re going to be gaming on the big screen, you’ll need plenty of seating. Choose furniture that doubles as seating and tables. Having flat surfaces that can double as chairs and tables will prevent the need to have additional table and chairs. Also ensure they are easy to move around the room.
If you want to be able to see what you’re doing properly you’ll want the space to be well lit. If your game room doesn’t have enough natural lighting, ensure you have plenty of ceiling lighting. You don’t want to have lamps around that have to potential to be knocked over and smashed.
4. Optimise on wall space
Most game rooms don’t have a lot of floor space so it’s important to optimise on wall space. A great piece to include in your ultimate game room is a place to keep score of all the games! Add a scoreboard, chalkboard and white board so you can keep score and have a bit of fun. Another game to put up on the wall is a dart board.
5. Personalise your space
Personalise your game room to give it your own personal style. Try to avoid hanging photos, art or anything that could get ruined. You want your game room to be the one room where you don’t have to worry about those kinds of things. Instead put up posters and things that are going to take your mind off the worries of the world. It should be a room full of fun, laughter and great memories.
