50 Awesome Video Game Rooms That’ll Make Your Friends Jealous

If you play video games a lot, then chances are you spend most of your time in just one room of your house. The thing is, if you are going to be in the same area of your home so much, why not make it the best part?

How to Create Your Perfect Gaming Setup

Let’s face it; if you’re an avid gamer, you’re going to want an entire room to yourself (unless you game with your partner). This means if the item is unrelated to gaming, it’s not going in the video gaming room! It will help if you start by considering these factors when setting up a gaming area.

Game Room Size

If you’re strictly a PC gamer, no need to worry about having a ton of space for gaming, you’ll only need a small room with an efficient organization to keep yourself satisfied during long gaming sessions. For places that will have video game consoles, movie streaming, and bars, you’ll want an ample dedicated space like an entire basement to fit all your gaming furniture and accessories.

Sound Proofing Your Game Room

If you live with others or don’t want your neighbors to hear your video game sessions late at night, invest in some soundproofing. It’s surprisingly inexpensive and very effective at lessening the amount of noise that leaks into neighboring rooms. Even if you’re not sure how to soundproof a room, you will find the review photos and product instructions informative and useful.

Comfortable Gaming Seating

Buying quality seating will prevent you from having back pain, something I learned the hard way! Search for ergonomic gaming chairs to give your back the support in need over long periods.

Gaming TV Stand

Console gamers should make sure they have adequate storage for their games and game consoles. I recommend buying a TV stand with open storage so consoles can receive maximum airflow. A few years back, I purchased a minimalist white media unit from IKEA, and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done!

Simple Gaming Desk

Buying a large desk to fit all of your gadgets is essential. If you’re a PC gamer, keep in mind that you may want more monitors in the future or a dedicated microphone for MMOs.

Cable Management

While cable management is usually for aesthetic purposes, I like to keep mine tucked away because I have a dog. Dogs love to chew, so if you have one or are thinking of getting one in the future, consider using cables to keep your pet safe.

Gaming Modem and Router

If you’re a PC gamer, I’ll always recommend hardwiring your PC to your modem for the fastest and most stable Internet connection. For other devices, make sure you invest in a good-quality router. You’ll experience better content streaming and better connections when in voice chats.

Must-Have Gaming Room Accessories

You are wondering what to buy to pimp out your new gaming room? Now that you’ve got all the practical plans out of the way, it’s time to indulge. Here are some techy staples that’ll make your new space cool.

Speakers and Headphones

Even if you opt for a smaller gaming space, surround sound speakers will do wonders for helping you immerse in whatever you’re playing. If you’re sharing your game room with someone else, good quality headphones are essential. My favorite brand that I recommend is AKG for their over-the-ear headphones.

Headphone Amplifier

Want the best sound quality out of these headphones on a budget? I recommend using an ODAC and headphone amplifier combo. I am currently using the Mayflower Electronics Objective2. Trust me; it’s worth every cent.

Gaming Room Lights

Lighting is crucial for setting the mood. If you want your gamer’s room to feel like an escape, try using smart light bulbs. I use Lifx bulbs as they are way ahead of the competition in terms of quality. They are brighter and have more vivid colors compared to Philips Hue. See below for an example of how you can use Lifx bulbs in your gaming space. You will see how you can add color to a white gaming room.

Gaming Headset or Dedicated Microphone

If you’re on a budget, a gaming headset will work for your casual music listening as well as chats via Discord. A quality but affordable headset will cover all your bases if buying dedicated headphones aren’t for you.

For maximum sound quality, you should invest in a solid dedicated mic. The Blue Yeti microphone is very easy to set up. You plug it into a USB port and can start online chatting.

4K Projector for Small Spaces

Whether you have a small gaming room or a large living room to fill, projectors add to the cool factor. You can easily store away your projector screen when not in use or keep it up as gaming room decor. You’ll want a good quality projector to get the most enjoyment, so I recommend this 4k projector.
