Game rooms of the past were often buried in musty basements with tattered and worn sofas and the sound of the washer and dryer humming in the background. Today’s modern game rooms, however, have not only made it to the main part of the house, they are also tastefully incorporated into a home’s real estate luxury décor.
Here are some innovative ways to bring gaming fun into your home while still maintaining a cohesive blend of style in your upscale game room.
Shades of White
If you’ve embraced the latest white-on-white trend throughout your home, there is no reason you can’t let that scheme flow into your game room décor. White walls, bright lights, and white barstools can complement any accent color you wish to include. An off-white rug resting on your rich, hardwood floors can add that touch of warmth you’ve created throughout the rest of your home. Your favorite game tables or video games can provide a “pop” to your pristine palette.
Cheering for the Home Team
Whether you’re a Cardinals or Dbacks fanatic or have a deep love for your alma mater, your game room can reflect your passion for your favorite team. Sports memorabilia, pennants, and framed autographed jerseys can display your pride no matter what sport is in season. Toss some throw pillows adorned with your team’s mascot on a couple of leather recliners, and you’ll be all set to watch the big game on your 65” mounted flat screen.
A Touch of Class
When your style is formal and elegant, your game room can be as well. Think Monte Carlo or a scene from many a James Bond movie…dark wood, crimson fabrics, and subdued, ambient lighting. Crystal drinkware, a mahogany poker table, and a red-topped billiards table can complete the refined look. Can you say shaken, not stirred?
Fun, Fun, Fun
The Beach Boys called it with this anthem of youth. Game rooms can be anything you want them to be…even if they depart slightly from the rest of your home’s interior design. Bright colors, wacky prints, and kitschy themes are all within reason when you’re in the fun zone. Plus, a game room where anything goes is the perfect place to bring back everything retro, from Pac-Man to air hockey to carrom tables. It’s all about having a good time.
As you can see, real estate luxury doesn’t have to stop with the living room and bedroom décor. In today’s modern home, you can create a unique game room while still maintaining your classic sense of style.
