What does a game room actually constitute? There is no fixed definition although there are several aspects that fit the description. It may be a conventional games room with a pool table, air hockey table, table tennis, or even a football table. However, it could be a modern take of a game room idea, with arcade games, game console with video games, and gaming chairs.

Furthermore, it may be an entertainment space too. Have you considered a basement bar? A wet bar can be perfect as an entertainment space and location for a game night. Card games in a purpose built environment can be a little more intense!

Another option is a home theatre with comfortable chair, alongside your recreation room. If you do go down this route, consider adding additional sound insulation to prevent the sound leaking to the rooms above. You also need tp consider the lighting in these spaces. You should consider the purpose of the room before designing the lighting scheme.
