All that and a bag of chips

The family gameroom is one of the few places in your home where design ideas are almost limitless. Whether you are looking for a 50’s diner feel or a wood paneled, cigar-jacket ambience, it can be accomplished with ease in a gameroom with a little planning.

The first step to proper planning and a successful outcome is to determine the needs your gameroom should fulfill for you and your family. Some things to consider are the size and location of the space as well as what needs your gameroom will fulfill for the family.

Even with a small space available, you can successfully plan a fun gameroom. For space saving try two tables; a pool table and a multi use round or octagonal table. Pool tables can become table tennis, dining or buffet tables.

Round or octagonal tables can be poker, bumper pool and checker tables. They can even be used for dining, board games or even homework...the options are endless.

Actual décor options are nearly endless. We see everything from Harley Davidson refrigerators to bull dog butlers to 50’s style payphones and Elvis Presley Wurlitzer Jukebox Replicas to deck out the space depending on your style. You can also feature your favorite NFL or MLB team from top to bottom including pool table felt, neon signs, cues, billiard balls and pool table lights. If you want a fun and lighthearted space, keep the colors bright including white and primary colors. For a darker more sophisticated style, look to heavy fabrics like velvet and leather and colors like coffee, evergreen and wine. You can even throw in some leopard print rails on your pool table, in-wall cabinets for your pool cues and accessories and dark colored furnishings.

Finally, if you plan to do lots of entertaining in your gameroom, the latest trend in gameroom gear are home bars. Home bars add a great place for people to "belly up." It will become the focal point of any party affording opportunities to share drink recipes and stories. In addition, kegerators or beer dispensers are a popular option to have your favorite draft beer at home. Your friends will say your "All that and a bag of chips"
