Once you decide on a theme, you may want to choose accessories that will accent that theme. If your room is centered on football, you can add oval rugs to the room that look like footballs. There are also lamps and wall hangings that can accent the theme. If you want a room that is centered on the pool table, you can accessorize with billiard balls around the room. Black rugs may work best with this theme. While you are decorating your game room, you may also want to look at the furniture you are placing in there. If you are going to be spending a lot of time watching sports on television, then you may want to look at couches and recliners that will make the room a comfortable place to spend time. If your game room is simply going to be a place to play games, then you may want to have chairs and tables set up to make game playing easier to do. The furniture you add to your game room will determine how often people want to hang out in there.
You can also place a mini bar in one side of the rec room with a couple of bar stools. Place a small gum machine on the bar, or a table top popcorn machine. Behind the bar, you can have a vintage coke cooler or small bar fridge to cool beer or wine. Hang a mirror or wine themed canvas prints behind the bar. A game room will never be complete without a wide screen TV with a cable connection. You and your friends can watch sports shows on TV while having some drinks and playing a game of pool. Other essentials are a sound system, solid speakers with surround sound, a CD and DVD player. If you and your friends play poker, then a poker table in one corner would be a great addition. Place comfortable chairs and a couch facing the wide screen TV. Use fluffy and soft throw pillows for the couch and don't forget a plush area rug in that part of the rec room.
Whatever style or color scheme you use to decorate your family room, be sure to keep it comfortable. I wouldn't recommend formal style furniture in your family room since it is a gathering room where people want to relax. And remember, in a room where many gather, there are more spots and stains. Choose furniture with upholstry that is stain resistant or with covers that are easy to remove and wash. Upholstry with dark colors or having leather furniture are great choices for a family room. Adding ottomans or foot rests are also nice pieces to prop your feet up, and they provide extra seating when you have a lot of people filling the room.
For upholstered furniture, you can go a number of ways. If you want the room to feel fun, you may want to choose more brightly colored hues. Perhaps you can match the color to your favorite game table to tie things together. Another option is to match the upholstery to other upholstery in your home decor, thus tying the spaces all together and creating a flow in the home. When it comes to choosing home accessories and decor to accent the place, it's best to consult the people who use the room most often. Though you may have chosen to blend the furniture with the other furniture in your home, you may want to be a bit more open to color palettes and overall decor for the space. This is particularly true if you're hardly ever in the room, but your children or spouse use the game room often. Of course, that doesn't mean you should bend to your children's choices of neon pink or green. Instead, find ways to compromise by incorporating a softer hue of their choice, one that better blends into your home decor. If your son says he likes green and he happens to the person who uses the room most often, then consider using a shade of green that suits your tastes while still giving him a shade of green that he requested. You could easily use moss green or forest green and have the look of green without going overboard.
