If you, your children, or your partner are somewhat of a self-described avid gamer, then a gaming room is one of the most amazing ways to transform a spare bedroom or even a corner of a room that is designated a gaming-only zone.
With that in mind, continue reading to learn of five ‘game-changers’ for your gaming room in 2022 that will make you the envy of your online and real-life gaming friends.
- Gaming Chair
Aside from the obviously mandatory screen and computer or video game system, perhaps the second most important item within your gaming room is a chair, unless you plan on spending hours on end standing up.
However, investing in a specialized gaming chair is an absolute must for a really impressive gaming set-up. Be sure to spend time choosing the right material, be that fabric, leather, or plastic-covered, and it is always worth spending that little bit extra to make sure the chair provides good neck, shoulder, and back support.
- Giant Bean Bag
Just as important as a structured and aesthetically impressive gaming chair, a breakout space to rest your eyes, not to mention your fingers, and relax in between rounds and battles is an absolute must.
A giant bean bag is a fantastic investment. For children and adults alike, the comfort, durability, softness, and choice of available colors mean that there is a perfect option for everyone. The beauty of a bean bag chair for adults is that they are lightweight and therefore easily movable. You can also use your new purchase for relaxing when reading a book or even snuggling up to watch a movie in the living room once the children have gone to bed.
- Blackout Curtains
Social media is saturated with posts and photos of gaming rooms across the length and breadth of the globe that boast brightly colored and even video game branded curtains and drapes on the windows.
Unfortunately, although these designs are very much in keeping with the rest of the gaming room aesthetic, these drapes are virtually ineffective at blocking out lights and reflection from the windows, which can seriously hamper gameplay. Blackout curtains are a much better option for your professional gaming room.
- LED Strip Lights
Customizable LED strip lights will serve to bring the whole room design together, and what is more, such lighting packs are incredibly affordable and even more effective.
Regardless of age, everyone will love to play around with different light settings and color groupings, and it is even possible to set a light show to play out for each of the different games you play, which will add to the drama.
- Artificial Plants
To prevent your gaming room from existing as a completely dystopian and futuristic technological collective, the addition of artificial plants and succulents is still in keeping with the design aesthetic. Still, it will also add an element of nature to the room.
These days, there is a wide plethora of beautifully designed and exceedingly natural-looking artificial succulents, flowers, and plants available in a range of sizes, colors, and species.
