Large open spaces around your home are always ideal for parties and of course they also make the perfect playing space if you’re hoping to get your friends together to play bingo or a brain-testing quiz. It’s more and more common to find that many homes now come complete with a dedicated games rooms, a little haven in our properties where we can all escape too and get away from the hardships of everyday life. And for some when it comes to creating the perfect gaming environment no expense is spared so we’ve decided to unearth the most lavish ones we could find.
THE CLASSIC GAMERS ROOM
Retro gamers and fans of classic arcade-based titles can always find plenty of imaginative ways in which to create the perfect lair. Old school classics are often celebrated and there is plenty of merchandise out there to cater for those wanting to indulge a little bit of 70’s and 80’s nostalgia This particular gaming fan managed to turn his pad into a cool throwback to one of Nintendo’s classic arcade games ‘Donkey Kong’. And it’s an ingenious way in which to not only pay homage to the famous platformer but to also show-off your game collection.
THE MINIMALIST’S GAMING ROOM
Not everyone has the option of turning a spare room into a gaming haven but that doesn’t mean you can’t simply repurpose an existing room and give it more than just one function. Many players enjoy gaming time in the comfort of their living rooms and if you have spaces where you can keep your consoles or board games out of sight and behind cabinet doors then you can still have fun whilst maintaining that relaxing aura.
THE BOARD GAME ROOM
Whilst literature may not be your favourite pastime and you would prefer to spend a quiet evening playing a board game then liven up your décor and create a game-playing area with a classy touch. There’s no shame in preferring Top Trumps over Tolstoy and proudly displaying your board games to your visitors can really give your home a new dimension. If stacked neatly and displayed on a shelving unit each game will jump out at guests and hopefully get them in the mood for a fun evening in.
THE PUB GAME ROOM
Many people invest thousands into creating their idealistic game room. Top quality pool tables, neon signs, retro arcade games, pinball machines and even collectible jukeboxes. And those who have a particular fondness for pub and bar games such as darts, pool, foosball and cards will often attempt to recreate that bar essence so it gives you and your mates somewhere to hang out and have fun without having to even leave the home.
