Basement games room ideas – 7 looks for family night's in

1. Add A Bar Area To Your Basement Games Room

The basement is somewhat detached from the rest of the house, and as such benefits from being self-contained. Consider incorporating home bar ideas into your basement games room so that you don't have to leave the den to fix yourself a drink or a snack.

2. Add A Neon Sign For A Bright Glow

Lighting can be a challenge in basements, however, there are plenty of basement lighting ideas, that can help to brighten the space. 'Games rooms are a great use of basement space, as they don't necessarily need windows or natural light. The neon sign is a fun way to create lighting and adds a zing,' says Samantha Todhunter, founder of Samantha Todhunter Design.

3. Invest In Seating That Has All The Hi-Tech Elements

If you're hoping to incorporate elements of video games room ideas into your basement then, consider a purpose-made gaming chair. 'Smart tech has enhanced the next generation of luxury seating. Easy-to-use control buttons require little more than a simple hand-swipe to adjust the headrest and footrest, make for effortless entertainment,' says the design studio team at KING Living.  There are even designs that feature inbuilt surround sound speakers and drinks trays to add to the experience –  for example, this GTRACING gaming chair with speakers from Amazon.

4. Opt For Patterned Flooring Underfoot

Basements can feel cold and unwelcoming. One way to deal with this is with carpet ideas. A popular choice of basement flooring ideas, carpet provides comfort, texture and a valuable layer of insulation.

5. Keep The Walls Bright And Airy

Bright colors are a must in a basement – with no windows, you need to make the most of all the light in the room. Incorporate as many white room ideas as you can and try decorating with mirrors to lighten the space.

6. Split Level Design Offers A Cozy Game Zone

The 1970s trend for conversation pits is making a resurgence. While we wouldn't recommend them as part of your living room ideas, they are a great addition to your basement.

7. Make The Most Of All Available Space

It is the dream of many homeowners to have a home gym, and the basement games room offers the perfect opportunity. Make the most of all the available space by hanging equipment from the ceiling, as seen in this basement design. Why not go a step further and add a clever understairs seating area that could also double up as invisible storage helping to keep your basement organized?
