Coming up with game room ideas for remodeling can get your creative juices flowing. Next to the kitchen, an in-home game or recreation room can act as the key focal point for family activity. There are a number of different ways to remodel the game room with a creative design. Consider the following ideas when planning your game room remodeling.

Pool Room Décor

Including a pool table in your game room can act as the jump-off point for creating the décor. The pool table may be the focal point of the room, but the overhanging light can set a certain mood in the room. Answering an echo to an old-fashioned pool hall, an antique-looking stained glass fixture can evoke a different era.

It can also be customized to suit your personality–favorite sports team, automobile or motorcycle, animal and hunting themes for example. Pool table supply stores also offer a number of accessories for chalk dispensers, cup holders, side chairs, and other accouterments that compliment the table design.

Sports Theme

Your game room can take on the theme of your favorite sports team. Sports memorabilia is available for almost every team imaginable – and in an assortment of items. You can design the room with your favorite team in mind using logos and other identifying symbols in every imaginable way. Not only can you adorn the walls with ream pennants and photos, but everything from cups and tumblers to swizzle sticks and wastebaskets can display your favorite team.

And, if the room has a bar, there are endless possibilities for all bar-related accessories to follow your chosen sports theme. Adding a pool table with accompanying sports theme designs such as a logo table cloth or team-themed side chairs can also be a fun way to go. Add a sports-themed dartboard and hoist a sports-themed beverage mug whenever a bulls-eye is thrown.

Casino Style

If your family and friends enjoy gaming as a recreational activity, you may decide to remodel the room like a mini-gambling casino. Themed furniture is available as roulette, dice, and poker tables that can add a spirit of gaming competition to your rec room ambiance. Your style choice might include a throwback to an Old West saloon or a Roaring 20’s SpeakEasy. Furniture can easily be found at bargains in used retail locations or possibly found at garage sales or flea markets. Furthermore, searching antique stores may present a bargain or two finding a genuine period piece to help accent the look.

Family Fun

Don’t overlook the kids when remodeling your game room. Include enough family fun entertainment that could include multi-use game tables for checkers, chess, and backgammon. Folding card tables that seat four are great choices for board gameplay. Include the design of a specific board game shelf for easy access.

Check with a commercial bar or restaurant supply store for furniture and other product ideas to fill your remodeled game room.
