It’s game time! If you’re fortunate enough to have a game room in your home but are stumped on how to furnish and decorate it, follow these suggestions from the professional interior designers and you’ll soon be selling tickets. Start with a budget, make a plan and prepare to execute.
The size and configuration of your space will dictate the amount of faming pieces and furnishings to select. Begin with the flooring. Choose a durable flooring material and lay throughout the space. Mixing flooring materials will break up the space. Gaming options can range from dart boards to custom billiards tables. The options are nearly limitless. Start with selecting the larger pieces. A ping pong table or billiards table will need approximately five feet around the perimeter to allow for play. In a separate area consider adding a pin ball machine and date board. These are games that the entire family can enjoy.
Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and select furnishings from Home Decorators Collection. A durable and comfortable sectional or sofa and club chairs are appropriate for the space. Consider adding a game table with four chairs for puzzles and board games. This will allow both adults and children to enjoy the space. Add a popcorn machine and movie projector for extra fun. Finally, select a color palette for the space. Consider a soft, neutral color for the main walls and a bolder complimentary color for an accent wall. Remind yourself that selecting a baby’s name is a huge decision. Selecting a $20 can of paint is not. Painting the walls will be the single largest transformation of the space. Window panels hung just below the ceiling level will draw the eye vertically and make the space feel larger. Add large throw pillows of the floor for serious lounging.
Prepare to have many fun evening in the space making family memories that will last a lifetime. Friends and family will enjoy the space and join in the fun for years to come.
