Design tips for decorating a stylish game room

Here’s how to achieve the aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a game room?

A well-planned game room design should promote ease of movement, comfortable seating, and adequate storage, while also accommodating the specific gaming and entertainment activities you enjoy.

When designing a game room, it's essential to create a versatile and inviting space that caters specifically to the type of game or games you want to play. Whether you're in the process of designing a new game room or looking to revamp your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the game room and complements the style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Game Table: A must-have for any game room, designed specifically for your game of choice. These tables often feature built-in storage or special surfaces to enhance the gaming experience. Game tables come in all shapes and sizes: from card tables to pool, ping pong, and air hockey tables.
  • Sofa or Sectionals: Comfortable seating is key in a game room for relaxing and socializing. A plush sofa or sectional can provide a cozy spot for guests to sit back and enjoy video games or watch movies.
  • Accent Chairs: These can add extra seating and a pop of color or style to the room. Accent chairs are especially useful for creating flexible seating arrangements that can be adjusted based on the activity or the number of guests. For ultimate relaxation, a chaise lounge or a couple of recliners can be a great addition, offering a comfortable spot for extended gaming sessions or movie marathons.
  • Bar Stools and Counter Stools: If your game room features a bar or a high table, stools are essential. They offer a casual seating option and encourage interaction among guests.
  • Coffee Table and Side Tables: Useful for holding snacks, drinks, game controllers, or board games, these tables combine functionality with style, anchoring the seating area and providing convenient surfaces.
  • Storage Units: To keep games, accessories, and equipment organized, consider incorporating various storage solutions like shelving units, cabinets, or credenzas. These can also serve as display areas for collectibles or décor.
  • Entertainment Center or TV Stand: For game rooms that include a video gaming setup or a home theater system, an entertainment center or TV stand is crucial for housing your electronics and media in an organized manner.
  • Area Rug: Besides adding warmth and texture to the room, an area rug can also help define different zones within an open space, such as a separate area for board games or a lounge area.
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light and provide privacy but also serve to tie the room's design together. They offer an opportunity to inject color, texture, and pattern into the living space, making it more inviting and personalized. Whether flowing and sheer for a light, airy feel or rich and textured for a more luxurious look, curtains play a pivotal role in setting the tone and atmosphere of the game room. Don’t forget the curtain rod!
  • Decorative Accessories: Now for the fun part:). Decorative accessories are the finishing touches that bring depth and personality to any game room. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall color scheme and style to bring your design vision to life.

By incorporating these furniture pieces into your game room's floorplan, you can create a dynamic and enjoyable space that caters to various entertainment needs and preferences​​. If you need an extra hand in your design process, check out our step-by-step guide on How To Design a Room.
