Gaming rooms are great, but if you want to take things to the next level, you should create a gaming house. Here’s what you should do to get started.
As a gamer, having a space dedicated to your pastime is important—a place where you can get into the gaming mood and enjoy some of your favorite titles. However, so many articles already discuss how to create the perfect gaming room. We want to take that to the next level by telling you how to start turning your entire home into a gamer’s paradise. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to achieving this goal.
Devote Each Room to Something DifferentWhen you have only one room to dedicate to gaming, you’ll typically have all your gaming devices crammed into a small space. Once you expand to your entire home, it opens you up to more possibilities. You can have entire rooms devoted to specific things.
For example, the living room can be where you sit down and relax with some casual console gaming. If you want to get competitive, the back office with your gaming PC will be your go-to spot. If you’re into VR, you can set up an entire room specifically for that—plenty of open space with no breakable items. In the end, what you decide to do with each room is up to you.
Set Up Dedicated Gaming Display ShelvesAnother thing that tends to get a bit crowded in small gaming rooms is collectibles. Expanding throughout the rest of the house can open up your display possibilities. You can have one set of shelves for everything Nintendo, while the one in the next room is the holy grail of your favorite PlayStation properties.
Plus, you can now show off your entire collection of physical games. While you might not play them as often, letting your friends see all the games you own is a point of pride in the gaming community, and now you have the proper space to do so.
Come Up With a Color SchemeOf course, none of these changes that transform your home into a gamer’s paradise will mean much if you don’t pick the right color schemes to go with them. You need to set the tone of each room, and the best way to do that is through color. However, the method you choose is up to you. One of the best ways to make an impact is to paint the walls. A vibrant paint job can completely alter a room’s feeling.
If you live in an apartment or don’t have the time to paint your walls, colored lighting is another solid option. By installing RGB bulbs and light strands, you can achieve nearly the same effect that painting the walls does. Plus, lights are much easier to change if a color scheme isn’t working for you.
Find Comfortable Seating OptionsFinally, we come to your seating options. Since you’ll spend a lot of time relaxing behind a screen, you need the right gaming chair or couch. Whatever you decide to go with, make sure it’s something you’re comfortable with.
Once you’ve picked out your new furniture, it’ll be time to organize it. Knowing how to arrange your living room furniture is somewhat of an art. However, once you get it right, you’ll be able to achieve maximum comfort.
