Home Game Rooms
Games are not just for kids anymore! Adults want their fair share of fun too, and luxury homeowners are creating spaces where they never have to leave the comforts of home. In this series, we will discuss some of the top trends for luxury homes. Our first feature will focus on ultimate game room ideas from Parker Design Build Remodel to get you thinking about how to use these wonderful spaces!
One of the advantages of remodeling with the design/build approach is that you get to work with a designer to think through how you want to use and enjoy your space before construction ever begins. This approach can save you time and money later on. For example, many game rooms are designed to entertain a large group of guests. But, one television and a sofa will limit the number of guests you can entertain. So, you’ll want to design your space and your wiring plan with considerations for plenty of seating, multiple television locations, audio equipment, and any electric required for gaming devices. Planning goes a long way towards a job well done.
Lighting is critical in a game room. Whether you’re playing darts, pool, or shuffleboard, you need to be able to see to compete! Ensuring that the room is wired appropriately and that you’ve considered the placement of game tables will help you avoid costly change orders later. Choosing the right type of lighting goes hand in hand with this concept. Ensuring there are task lights above game areas and ambient lighting appropriately placed throughout is also important to functionality of the room.
A really competitive game of ping pong may be cause for celebration…except when it keeps the babies from sleeping. Not everyone in the home may want to be in the game room, so you’ll want to plan ahead by incorporating noise reduction into the design. There are a number of ways to accomplish this and Parker Design Build Remodel can provide you all of the options to help you make an informed decision.
While many homes now feature a home movie theater, you will typically find lavish luxuries like basketball courts, indoor pools, and bowling alleys incorporated into many ultra-luxury homes. Ready to get started? Let Parker Design Build Remodel’s design team help you create your ultimate game room!
