How to Create the Ultimate In-Home Game Room

Whether you are looking for the best way to make your home more entertaining for your friends and family, or trying to encourage your kids to spend more time at home, a carefully designed game room is a good way to entertain people of all ages. If installing an in-home bowling alley isn’t a practical choice for the space you have available, installing a couple of lanes for Wii bowling may be a better option. Although bowling has long been a leading pastime for people of all ages, the more variety you have to offer, the more entertaining your game room will be for a long period of time.

Choose the Location

If you are thinking of converting a den or extra bedroom into a game room, you may find that you run out of space quickly. If you have a basement, it may be the ideal setting for creating your game room and installing Wii bowling lanes, and anything else you want to use. An unfinished basement has just as much potential as one that has already been turned into a regular part of the home.

Create a Plan

Once you decide where your game room will be located, measure the space so you know what you have to work with. Draw out a simple plan to help you determine the best use of the space you have available. Allow for a generous amount of space around each game, to give participants the room they need to move freely. It will also prevent the room from looking cluttered instead of carefully placed.

Hire an Experienced Contractor

If you need structural work or installation of large equipment, get the services of a professional contractor. This is especially true if you will be installing an in-home bowling alley that requires the expertise of an experienced contractor. Doing the job right the first time will make your investment an even more enjoyable one.

The Final Details

Incorporating the right lighting is essential to being able to see every game well enough to play. Use task lighting over every game and include ambient lighting to light the rest of the room. Choose the right furniture and include gaming chairs for activities where appropriate. Add fun themed rugs and decals on the walls, and you will have a fun and inviting game room that everyone will enjoy! Call Murrey Bowling at 310-532-6091 to learn more.
