Want your home to be the neighborhood teenage hangout (so you can keep tabs on yours)?
Or maybe you’d love a quick game of darts after a hard day…whatever the reason, home game rooms are fun…and you could even say practical because they provide a great way to relax!
Check out these 10 game room designs. Let them inspire you to create your own fun space!
1. Game character theme
Minecraft crazy kids? You don’t have to have an entirely separate room for your game room…just add a few features to your existing living room and you’ll create a fun space for the whole family.
My favorite feature is the Creeper “breaking through” the wall!
2. Movie/Game night
A combination gaming and movie theater, this game room idea is perfect for a basement or garage.
3. For the “Big Kids”!
Any sports fan in your family? This pro baseball themed game room is the perfect choice for diehard fans to hang out, watch the game, and play a few of their own.
4. Doin’ it old school!
Bring back some memories…fill your game room with old style pinball and arcade games like this one. Check out the ball team rugs, jerseys and caps that add to the old time arcade feel many of us grew up with.
5. Wide open spaces
Park the car(s) outside…turn your garage into the perfect game room.
6. Hidden in plain sight
Create the ultimate “hidden” game room by purchasing multi-use furniture like this pool/dining room table.
7. Fun yet unassuming
While not a traditional ‘game room’, not everyone has the space to create a specific “game” room. If this sounds like you, think multi purpose.
The addition of bright, soft, and easy to move furniture turns this office/living room space into a place for the entire family to relax, unwind and have fun.
8. Bring back the memories
Who says you have to have a pool table, foosball and arcade games to have fun? Create a game ‘closet’ and prepare yourself to beat the family wordsmith at the next Scrabble competition!
9. Original ‘game room’
You don’t have to get fancy…just tuck two chairs and a small table in the corner of a room. This is the perfect spot for a game of chess, checkers, or even a game of Solitaire.
Who says you need a lot of space to play Foosball – use tabletop versions of different games instead.
No need to spend a lot of money or take up an entire room in your home to have fun playing your favorite games.
