If you already have an extra room in your home, the you can renovate it to make it an ideal place for storing your gaming gear and accessories. The gaming room should be well-ventilated, insulated, soundproofed, and has enough space for all your items. There are no rules on how big the room should be, but it should have enough space for your television or projector, personal computer, consoles, games, chair and tables, and other items.

Soundproofing

If you are planning to invest in a good sound system, then you should make sure that the room is soundproofed so you don’t wake up your neighbors in the middle of the night. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to soundproof the room because a cheap alternative is to install soundproof foam.

Make sure that the quality speakers are placed strategically so that you can still hear all the explosions and gunshots without disturbing your neighbors. Most gamers recommend a surround sound system for this setup.

Insulation and Ventilation

You will be investing a lot of money on the room, that is why you need to make sure that there will be no heating issues or damage to your consoles, PC, and games. Invest in quality ventilation and air conditioning to protect your items and gadgets from the elements.

Wiring

A tangle of wires will not only look messy, but they can also be a source of fire and accidents. Make sure that you cover the wires properly or place behind shelves and tables or under the carpet, so that they do not make the room look disorganized. You should also have enough power sockets to avoid using too many extension cords, and don’t forget to tie all the cables that cannot be hidden under decor and furniture. An organized gaming room also makes cleaning and maintenance easier.

Decor

Try to make the place look aesthetically-pleasing besides placing your collection of action figures and gaming posters. Invest in quality chairs that are comfortable and easy to clean, quality lighting, and in sturdy shelves or storage cabinets to hold your collection. You can also decorate the walls with gaming wallpaper or removable vinyl and install arcade gaming machines for a complete experience.
