Many of our previous blog posts examine how to maximize your backyard space during the warm months, but what about your indoor space? Although reading a book under a gazebo, enjoying a morning soak in a home spa or laughing with friends you’ve invited over for a barbeque, are all fun ways to spend the summer, there will be days when you want to beat the heat indoors. Does this mean the fun has to end?
At Canadian Home Leisure, we recognize the value a well-planned game room brings your home and want to suggest how to go about realizing yours!
Where Will It Be Located?
Before you start planning out how every inch of your game room will be used, you must first choose a room! Is your basement a free space that can be transformed or maybe you have a spare bedroom or den that can be utilized.
When picking the right space, keep in mind, you’ll likely want your game room away from busier parts of the house (e.g., the kitchen or living room) to help achieve a more relaxed atmosphere for the space.
How Do You Plan to Use the Space?
No two game rooms are exactly the same. You may plan on dedicating your space to poker night with the boys or include other table games like a billiards table or shuffleboard. Maybe your vision for the area goes past table games, to incorporate video games or even a dartboard. Whatever your ideal game room will consist of, it’s crucial you have a clear vision so you can plan accordingly.
Are You Going to Incorporate a Bar?
Having to go up to your kitchen for cold refreshments is a real nuisance. If you have space and the budget allows it, look into incorporating a small bar area into your game room. This section can serve as another section with seating and give all users of the space a place to have drinks and talk.
