Do you have a room in your home that's not getting much use? Maybe it's a guest bedroom that rarely sees guests or a home office that's become more of a storage room? If you're a gamer, pool shark, or board game aficionado, we've come up with some easy ideas to make your game room the best on the block. 

Keep it Comfortable- Whether you're planning to host your friends or want a space for some me-time, make sure you have comfortable seating and practical tables. Puzzles might be best enjoyed on a bar height table with matching chairs and gamers might appreciate a coffee or side table to hold their drinks. 

Game Room, Billiards, Entertainment, Billiard, SnookerCreate a Versatile Space- Have a small guitar collection? Love board games from your childhood? Combine both passions with well organized space for everything. Consider hanging guitars on the wall and shelving for the games. A pool table with a hard cover transitions well into a table for poker night. 

Remember to Refuel- Whether you're more of a wet bar with mixed drinks or a mini fridge and cabinet of snacks kind of person, the convenience of having drinks and food available is a must. 

Showcase the Focal Point- Is your tv going to be the main entertainment in the room or will be you be spending more time listening to your vintage record collection? Make sure the focal point of the room gets the space it deserves. 

Let Loose Your Inner Sports Fan- Love baseball, football, basketball, or golf? Channel that love of the game into the design of your game room. Highlight your favorite team or player and don't be afraid to hold back and finally put that memorabilia on display. 

Get Creative with Decor- Consider using sports equipment as decor, especially if space may be an issue. Hang table tennis paddles and pool cues. Complete the look with a chalkboard for keeping score. 

Invest in Good Speakers- Whether you're a gamer, movie fan, or music lover, speakers can make or break the experience. If a custom sound system isn't in the budget, consider going with a quality surround sound system. 

If your dream home has a dedicated game room or there just isn't enough space in your current home, it may be time to find a home that better fits your lifestyle.
