Game room, pool room, recreation/ rec room—whatever you call it, why not devote a room or a space in your home solely devoted to the purpose of having fun? The good news is, with a little planning and creative thinking, you can do it! You don't need an entire basement or bonus space to start dreaming up creative game room ideas (though it would be nice if you can spare the space!). An unused corner of your garage or living room can easily become a gaming area. Or, if movie nights are more your thing, a portable projector or a giant-screened TV can transform your living room or backyard into an epic home theater… just don't forget the popcorn. Get started with these tips:
Avoid a Theme
Your home is not a theme party, so try and keep it inviting, comfortable, and chic. Just like the rest of your home.
Any Space Will Do
Whether it’s a space in your garage, a loft, an extra bedroom, or a full bonus room, creating this family fun game room will bring years of enjoyment. If you’re short on space, even a tabletop option will beckon your family and friends to gather and make memories.
Add Bar Seating
To make the most of your square footage, hang a small shelf or picture ledge along an open wall and pull up a few bar stools to give everyone a place to perch.
Invest in Quality Pieces
Whether it’s a pool table, a coffee table for board games, or a poker table, a great way to elevate the look of a recreational space is to select game tables, , that are well-built and interesting. Try to avoid plastic and anything plastered with logos and instead look for pieces that are hand-made, vintage, or one of a kind.
Set up a Pool Table
A beautifully designed pool table can instantly elevate the look of your recreation room. Plus, is a rec room really a rec room without one?
Cater to Your Hobbies
Prefer pool over ping pong? Playing guitar over watching movies? Poker over Scrabble? Forgo a traditional game room in favor of a space dedicated to the things you truly love.
