The interior design industry generates approximately $10 billion in revenue each year. As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to do everything in your power to keep your home looking great. Deciding where to place your furniture items, what color to paint the walls, and how your kitchen is designed are home interior aspects that were likely made very early on in your design process.

Because there are so many things to focus on early on when moving into a new home, some things can get pushed aside for a while, even though they are just as important when it comes to interior design. If you have children and your home has a spare room, you could leave it as a spare guest bedroom for when a relative stays with you once a year, or you could have a little more fun with that room.

Having a play or game room inside your home isn’t difficult to achieve and can be so much fun for not just the kids, but for you, as well. Sure, the kids will spend the majority of their time having fun inside the room specifically designed for fun, but you’ll be able to sneak in there every once in a while and play a game or two, as well.

Here are some great tips for turning your boring guest room into a new and improved, fun-filled game room:

  • Setup a nice TV and video game console — Approximately 80% of American households own a video game console and these items are a must for quality play and game rooms. You can even have multiple consoles inside your game room, as well, since it can be hard to choose between Xbox, PlayStation, and even the classic Nintendo 64.


  • Get some bean bag lounge chairs — You can’t have a cool and fun room without some cool and fun seating. With bean bag lounge chairs, your kids will be able to relax and enjoy themselves for hours on end. Additionally, there are bean bag gaming chairs specifically designed for playing games, staying comfortable, for extremely long hours.


  • Have some snacks and cold drinks nearby — In order to truly have the coolest room of all-time, all you need to do is have some tasty snacks put in and hook up a mini cooler with some delicious drinks. Try to limit the sugary drinks, however, because your kids really will play their video games for extremely long hours if they get their hands on that much sugar.
