Speakers

When setting up your gaming room, make sure you consider the sound situation. Most modern games  produce immersive, multi-channel sound, so you may want to go for a five or seven speaker setup. Soundbars are also a good option, as they take up very little space.

Decorations.

Decorations

Gaming rooms are fun, recreational spaces that you can decorate any way you want. One idea is to think of a theme and then decorate the room accordingly. For example, if you’re a big fan of retro gaming, you could deck the room with 80s inspired furniture and wall art.

Gaming storage

If you have lots of video games and peripherals, you’re going to need somewhere to store them. There are lots of options. You could arrange them on a bookcase or cubby-style organiser. If floor room is limited, wall shelves help create more space.

Gaming beds.

Gaming beds

Don't have enough space for a dedicated gaming desk? Why not opt for a gaming bed instead? These are geared towards younger gamers, giving them a place to sleep as well as play. They will generally include a TV stand, game storage and space for multiple consoles.
