The purpose of the room, basically, is fun and relaxation, so try to fit this theme. Choose colors and pictures, for example, which are not too garish, if you want to feel relaxed, or bright and fun for a playful feel. You might even be able to find pictures or posters with a games theme on them, to add to your theme. If you want a specific theme for your games room, how about sport, casino, traditional, or even retro. For retro, try including a juke box and 'Happy Days' posters. For casino, maybe you could get hold of your own slot machine! Don't forget the floor of the room. Comfort should also extend to the floor. A plush, thick area rug can be an excellent addition to any family room. It makes for a great area for the family to sit around for a few rambunctious board games or card games- Think scrabble, monopoly and rummy.
Game rooms are very popular nowadays and a great addition to any home that has enough space to allow one to be incorporated into it. The best thing about having one yourself is that it's personalized by being designed and furnished exactly as you would like it to be. Once you have decided to have a games room plan it out by measuring the room and deciding on what type of theme to base your decor on. Then the main decision to be made is what to put into your games room and the best tip for this is think about what you would use on a regular basis not just appearance. Here are a few of the popular choices for items to be considered for using in your games room plans. Billiard, snooker or slate pool tables - This is the most popular item generally found in a games room with the pool table being the most common off the three. The game itself is played by almost everybody and therefore a surefire success in the popularity stakes with both your friends and family. They can come in many designs from antique to contemporary or themed to match your games room's style.
However, the flat screen television has become more popular, especially since it doesn't take up so much space. A lot of homes have the flat screen television mounted to the wall, especially over the fireplace as the focal point of the room. You can even purchase different style frames for your flat screen television for added decor. In this case, when the television is mounted to the wall, separate storage pieces can be used for your movies and such. DVD/CD racks, or shelves which mount to or lean on the wall are great options for storage. But don't get too wrapped up in trying to make your television or media center the focal point in your family room. It isn't really necessary. Really, almost everyone has a television now, so why make it your focal point when it really isn't a special piece? It isn't the focal point in my family room. I just prefer to have a nice ornate mirror or large framed photos above my couch, with decorative candle sconces on each side. Having decorative lamps on end tables that are on each side of the couch help pull together the focal point. Large figures or statues, or large vases with artificial floral or bamboo stems can be used at one end of your sofa instead of having lamps at each end.
Tables and seating may be an obvious decision, but don't forget about the less obvious choices. Although you may already have your game tables selected, consider multi gaming tables. Poker tables that convert to a regular table surface are practical for occasionally dining in your game room. This way you and your guests don't risk ruining the felt tabletop and you don't have to cram around a small pub table. Another attraction to consider is a bar. Having a your own bar means guests won't make frequent trips to the kitchen, keeping them right where the action is. Also, nothing is quite as impressive as having your own bar at home, and it will look great with the rest of your game room furniture.
