Choosing the ideal furniture and arrangement for any room can be daunting. Deciding on what works best in your space while trying to save money can be challenging!

If you have a game room, the process of finding the room design that provides the most fun shouldn't be a frustrating experience. It's supposed to be a fun room, right? Whether you have a new game room to outfit or you're upgrading the game room furniture in your current room, use our guide to find the right furniture and arrange it for the ultimate play space.

What Do You Play? Start Big

You might use your game room for entertaining, but your game room should feature your favorite games more than what your guests might like. What games do you play? 

Depending on the size and shape of your space, you might need to limit the "big" games to your favorites. 

  • Ping-pong is an excellent game room choice that anyone can play, young or old
  • When it comes to billiards, you need a table that looks nice and can hold up to intense games of pool with family and friends
  • Foosball is also a standard game room piece that you'll find in many game rooms
  • A shuffleboard table can complete a well-stocked game room for one-on-one or team play

Can your space handle all of these large games? If so, choose these tables to coordinate with each and the other furniture in the room. 

Not All Furniture is For Play

Your game room must also offer comfortable seating for those waiting for their turn to play. Do you have a bar? Choose bar stools that complement the floor and wall colors while syncing well with your big game tables. 

A dining table with seating is the perfect place for snacks or playing card games. If you have a big screen TV for video games or movies, make sure you have a comfortable couch or a couple of recliners with space for setting drinks and snacks nearby. 

Don't Forget the Lighting

From lamps to overheads, set the tone of the room with the right lighting. Natural lighting gives your game room a light, fun feel—plus it's good for you. However, if you're working with a "man cave" setting for your room, you might prefer lighting that provides just enough light to see the cue ball on the pool table. 

Arrange Furniture for Flow

Arrange the furniture in the room for good flow between games, food, and conversation. Don't forget the accessories! Make sure your game room has plenty of space for pool cues and room to make good shots on the pool table and play other games without running into walls and other furniture.

Set Up Your Game Room Furniture for the Most Fun!

Your game room furniture should provide maximum fun! Choose the best pieces and set up the room for family fun or entertaining friends.
