Hottest Game Room Trends Right Now
Even in new home design, the home game room is seeing a big resurgence in prevalence as more and more people want to stay home to have fun (which is less expensive) and want to make their home game rooms the neighborhood's favorite. The hottest game room trends are not necessarily those that are more expensive, either. Let's look at what mainstream America is incorporating into the hottest home game rooms around the country.
Hot Game Room Trends: Signs
While you don't want a slouch mess of posters and signs splattered all over your game room, a few well-chosen game room signs are all the rage. Choose pub signs, neon signs, beer signs, and more. The market is huge for these signs, so you'll find a plethora of options out there. There are also trendy personalized game room signs, like "John's Man Cave" or the "Johnson's Getaway" for example, that can be customized with your favorite saying.
Hot Game Room Trends: Sports Themed Colors
No matter what team you're rooting for, enjoying the game in a sports team themed game room is the ultimate fan experience - even if it's your son's high school football team. Choose the colors of your favorite team, and incorporate those colors throughout the room with throws, pillows and accessories in the shade of the team's colors as well as pain and trim on the walls. Posters are great - as are autographed baseballs and other memorabilia.
Hot Game Room Trends: Great Flooring
The home game room is no longer limited to the hard concrete of the basement; quite the contrary. Many of the hottest game rooms have a variety of flooring options, including bamboo, hardwood, cork, ceramic, or even carpet. Race fan? Go for black and white tile to make the room a checkered flag theme. Make sure that the flooring you choose for your family's ultimate game room is easy to clean, however - because we all know how messy those Super Bowl parties can be.
Hot Game Room Trends: Furniture
When choosing the furniture for your home game room, the sky is the limit, really. From pub chairs and accessories that are made more for the club scene than the home, to pinball machines and custom bar stools, decorating your home game room with fun furnishings adds to the pleasant atmosphere of the room. Keep little ones in mind, however, if you have kids in the home - and choose kid-friendly furnishings that are easy to clean and easy to use.
Hot Game Room Trends: Lighting
Lighting can really set the mood for your game room, and since many game rooms are in the basement where lighting is minimal, you'll want to make sure you have sufficient lighting for all of your activities. From pub lamps and bar lamps to over the table lamps made specifically for pool tables, there are tons of options for you. There are also personalized options when it comes to lighting for your game room - so choosing a coordinating sign and lamp is a great way to make the room come together.
