When the house is all decorated, you're often left wondering what to do with the spare room. There are a lot of options, but it can be difficult to make that final decision. I've always thought that devoting a whole room to storage is a big waste. And you don't want to be left regretting your decision later on. One thing that you probably won't regret though is making a games room! What's not to love about a games room? If you're a gamer, there's nothing to regret. It'll give you a great, relaxing space in which to kick back at the end of the day and play the latest games! Here's what to do if you're thinking about going for it!

Choose the Room

Most of us have no choice in this matter. We'll take whichever room is available. If you have a family and are lucky enough to have a spare room, then you've found your gaming room! If you don't have a spare room though, it's a bit more difficult. Consider converting the loft or basement into a gaming room. If you're single and have a flat to yourself, there's nothing stopping you from converting your bedroom into a gaming room. Whichever room you choose, make sure it's big enough to house all your equipment. 6

Install the Gaming Equipment

It's important to get the basics right first. You've got to get a good TV for the best gaming experience. Bigger is better up to a point, but you've got to take the shape and size of the room into account too when considering which TV to buy. Finding a high-quality gaming hdmi cable is also important as this is what connects the console to the TV. If the connection keeps dropping out you're going to quickly become frustrated and so it's always best to choose a good one from the get-go. You'll then need to put in your games system and add any extras you might want. I'd recommend adding a surround sound home cinema system. It'll make the gaming experience a lot more immersive, so why not splash out? If space is an issue, a quality soundbar can be a good alternative to multiple speakers - you can look here to see an option from Vizio.

Make it Comfortable

Your gaming room has to be comfortable. No one wants to sit around on an uncomfortable chair when playing games. It should become a place of relaxation as well as fun! The most important thing is a great chair. Try a big foam bean bag, see more at Or you could get a specialised gaming chair, but they're quite expensive. You might want a bigger sofa though. That way you can have lots of people joining in the gaming, rather than just sitting there alone. You could get creative and repurpose some old furniture and make something new!

Invite Your Friends Round

Once the games room is all set up and ready to go, you can try it out! You can't fully test a gaming room until you have a bunch of friends round and try it out properly. Get everyone to bring their controller and have a games marathon. I've had ones that can last all night. Have fun with it! You deserve it after all the work that went into converting the room. Hopefully, this guide will have helped you out, and set you on your way to having a top-quality gaming room in your home. This link was provided by
