If you have a spare room in your home and some fun friends and family members then what you may be in need of is a games room!
A games room makes a great addition to the home, whether you have a large family or live alone, it provides fun and amusement for all. Today we are going to go through the game room essentials to make sure you have covered all of your basics to make your games room one to be enjoyed all year round!
Every games room needs a jukebox because it needs to look and feel like a playful atmosphere. Jukeboxes come in various styles and shapes and so you can choose one that is customized to the look that you want it to have.
You can also buy jukeboxes that are coin-operated, or have a stereo that looks and operates like a jukebox, but doesn’t require coins to get started…a games room must!
2.) Bold Colours
A games room is unlike any other room in the house, in that it is designed to be stimulating rather than relaxing. For this reason, bright bold colors, (often more than one) in reds, greens, and yellows mixed with blacks make excellent shades for a games room.
3.) Pool Table
A games room is not complete without a pool table, and pool tables come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles. UK pool tables tend to be smaller and so will leave you more space for other things, whereas American pool tables are bigger and brighter.
If you do need a pool table for your games room, you will also need a pool cue hanging that can be fixed to the wall, or sit on the side as a stand. The one you go for is really up to you.
4.) Play Centre
Whether you are more of a Nintendo Wii, a little bit of Xbox, or 100% Playstation in your gaming style, there is nothing more enjoyable than a dedicated gaming space to play with mates. Games rooms that have a dedicated corner or space for computer games can look and feel fantastic – all you need is a decent flatscreen, or projector with some comfy bright-colored bubble sofas and off you go!
Computer gaming areas in a games room work best when they are modern: so you will need sofas that are close to the ground and allow sitters to lean forward, and a good spongy matt on the floor between the seats and the screen to make sure that you can jump out of your seat and rock around whenever necessary.
Games rooms have lighting that highlights the entertainment parts of the room, and the more control you have over the lighting the more favors you do to the mood of the different parts of the room. This means pool table lighting over your pool table, spotlighting over your play center, and general lighting for the rest of the room.
You cannot and must not have a games room without refreshments nearby, as the last thing you need whilst you are playing is a reminder that the rest of the house and all of the associated chores that go with it is still there. Keeping some drinks in the games room is a great way to enhance the room.
Whether you install a full-blown bar, or simply add a large, brightly colored oversized SMEG fridge: drinks have to be present in all games rooms.
