How to Create a Game Room

Are you the type of person who enjoys gaming or hosting game nights? Do you happen to have an extra room in your home? Then, you need to consider creating a game room. Check out this guide to learn how.

Go With a Theme

One of the first steps you need to take when creating a game room in your home is to pick the theme. Many game rooms have a specific theme that goes with the homeowner’s interest. There are many different themes you can choose from, including video games, computer games, board games, card games, and more. For more inspiration, scroll through Pinterest.

Install New Flooring

Since you are renovating the extra room in your home into a game room, you might as well go all out. That includes updating the flooring in the room as well. Since it is a game room, you do not necessarily need specific flooring. Instead, you can go with the type that works best with your wants and needs. If you need help finding the right flooring, you can check out our hardwood, laminate, luxury vinyl and waterproof product catalogs. Valor Home Services can also help you install the flooring.

You can easily change the atmosphere in your game room with a fresh coat of paint. Depending on the theme you decided to go with, there are a variety of colors to choose from.

Add Cool Lighting

Since you are going to be playing games and hanging out with family and friends, you want the atmosphere to carry throughout the time. And how do you do that? Through cool lighting, of course. Go to your local home improvement store or check online to find the latest fixtures.

Build Storage Units

As a game room, it will hold many different games. Therefore, you need to have space to store it all. That is where storage units come to play. There are a variety of ways you can create storage units, including shelves, cabinets, furniture, drawers, racks and more. Play around with the items you want to store and the amount of space you have to find the perfect storage units for your room.

Mount TVs & Consoles on the Wall

Utilize your game room’s space to the fullest by mounting televisions and gaming consoles to the wall. This keeps all your gaming equipment organized and concise.


The last step to take in creating a game room is to decorate. Follow the theme you picked in the beginning and find pieces that go with it. Luckily, there are thousands of shops you can look through to find pieces.
