Do you have a spare room or finished basement that you want to transform into a unique space that will bring your family together? A game room is a great idea for families with kids of all ages. It can provide a place for the kids to relax with their friends after school, or a gathering place for extended family get-togethers. However, while the rest of your house may have been easy to decorate in your personal style, you’re drawing a blank when it comes to designing a game room. Don’t worry, our team at Gemini Wallcovering and Renovations Inc. has you covered with these three tips.
1. Use Your Space Wisely
A great first step when designing any space is to get a clear vision of your ideal layout. Depending on what you want to include in your game room, you may be limited in your available space. For example, most standard game tables (like a pool table) require at least three to five feet of open space around them. Therefore, you will need to take that into consideration when planning your layout. Therefore, we recommend making a list of which games you’d like to include, determining if your square footage will allow them, and going from there.
2. Choose a Theme
Once you know your layout, the next step is to choose a theme, which will make your furniture and décor selection much smoother. A cohesive theme will also create a fun and social vibe that will go hand-in-hand with the typical game room environment. Maybe your family loves sports, or old Western movies, or you’d like to feel like you’re stepping into the 1950’s every time you enter your room. Whatever you choose, also consider incorporating a custom wall mural to truly take your game room to the next level.
3. Make It Comfortable
Finally, remember that if you truly want your game room to be a success, it will need to be comfortable. Therefore, as you choose furniture to fit with your theme, you should also prioritize comfort. Think cushioned, upholstered sofas and accent chairs. You may even want to consider a large sectional sofa for ample seating and a recliner for guests interested in kicking back with their feet up as they tune into the big game.
