Whether your home is large or small or whether you have a basement or not, a game room can be established. Simply use the amount of footage you have wisely. Begin with a couple of game tables and arcade games to fit into your spacial area. Game tables, at the most, need about 3 to 5 feet of space around them. Game rooms help to bring families together and all ages can participate.
Setting up a game room for all budget types is easy. There are a few simple steps that can be followed to have people feel comfortable in using your game room. A television set is one of the critical elements in creating a game room, especially during sport seasons. A television should be set up high, like on a wall or a tall mounted stand so that everyone has a clear view of the screen. Some people prefer a projector instead of a TV, but that’s really only a good idea if you’re setting up the room as a home movie room as well.
Deck the walls with some cool art to give it a personal touch. If you can graffiti or paint, then you can just paint directly on the walls. Or, you can look for posters or other artwork that you enjoy for the room.
Game rooms are an exciting time for everyone, but there should be some form of soundproofing. Homeowners can invest in adding sound-proof insulation panels, for both the walls and floors. Sound-proof panels are also designed so that they are thick enough to feel comfortable under your feet and helps to muffle the excitable sounds of the game participants from other rooms in the home.
Typical games that fit seamlessly into a game room and which can be fitted in a game room at 2 or 3 games at a time includes a mini air hockey tables and arcade games. Air hockey table games must be plugged in, therefore place them near an outlet so that extension cords are not needed and that people are not stepping over them. Another popular game for your game room is the arcade game – Pac-Man that has many new fun features.
Depending on the type of sports games you enjoy consider an electronic basketball game which provides plenty of friendly competitive action. This type of home game is a little physical, so plan for extra arm room. Arcade games are narrow and tall that can fit simply into small spaces.
Another action-packed game which doesn’t require a lot of space is a billiard table or table top tennis game. One to four players can play using paddles, a net, a cue stick, and ping-pong balls.
Factor in extra space when using your cue sticks because you need elbow space when playing close to other players. For the home game room, there are card table top games in shapes that include rectangular, vertical, round and octagon shape.
To keep your home game room a lot of fun, choose multi-game tables as the perfect choice. Multi-game tables can work in all size rooms and holds several different games in a flip top table or a rotational table or a convertible table top.
Convertible tables give players the ability to convert one style into another, for example, a billiard game can become a ping pong game. Flip top table games has two games – one on either side.
More games can be played with flip top tables and they contain a locking mechanism to keep the table from accidentally flipping over and to keep them level. Rotational multi game tables include more than two games. Each rotating piece features a different table game like pool, air hockey, foosball, and billiard.
