5 Fun Game Room Decor Ideas

After you purchase a gorgeous new pool table, shuffleboard, bubble hockey or air hockey table, ping pong table, or dart board, what comes next? Your game room has its main element, but it needs more. Have no fear! Your friends at HotSpring Spas & Pool Tables 2 are here to help. We’ve compiled a list of possible elements to add to your game room. The great thing about game rooms is that they’re all about FUN, so you don’t need to stress too hard when decorating. Go with what speaks to you! If you need a little help getting started, here’s some ideas:

Funky Overhead Lighting
Everything else about your game room is fun, so the lights might as well be too! Nobody wants to play games in the dark so having effective overhead lighting is important, especially directly over a pool table or shuffleboard. We suggest keeping it trendy and modern with some overhead lights that nobody will expect!

Signs & Marquee Lights
Signs really have the power to dress up your game room! Whether you spell out your last name in marquee lights, buy a neon sign representing your favorite sports team, or score a deal on a vintage cafe sign on CraigsList, these pieces add character and interest to your room. Make it your own!

Shiplap or Brick Walls
Creating some texture on one (or several) walls of your game room can create a whole new atmosphere! Brick can create a more modern, eclectic feel while wood shiplap can create a more rustic, cozy feel. What do you want your game room to say?

Snack Station or Bar
Nobody wants hungry/thirsty guests! Creating a small snack station or bar in your game room will both “wow” your guests and allow them to help themselves if they’re needing a refreshment or snack. This addition to the game room can be built-in or simply just a cart with a mini fridge! The possibilities are endless, but it’ll be a hit no matter how you do it. It also just may distract your guests from the fact that you didn’t cook anything…?

Finishing Touches
Your game room is the one room in the house where no rules apply! Add touches of your personality and have fun. It’s the perfect place for quirky, novelty pieces that don’t necessarily fit anywhere in the rest of the house. Look for the kind of things that will make your guests say, “Woah, where did you get this?!” We’ve listed a few fun pieces (with links!) that we think would go great in a game room. Just simply click on each image to shop. At the end of the day, it’s all about creating a space that you love and want to hangout in. Happy gaming!
