If you are spooked out every time you have to go down to the basement, you’re not alone. Most basements are bland, cold, used for storage, and not much else.
But what if your basement was transformed into a home game room where you could have parties, friends over, or even a romantic night?
We have a few basement game room ideas for just how you can make the most boring room into your favorite room of the house.
Most Popular Basement Game Room Ideas
Whether you’re looking to take a break from the rest of your house or you want to have a good time with friends when they come over, here a few of the most popular ways you can DIY your basement into an exciting place to be.
Install Arcade Machines
Nowadays, when we think of game rooms we think of online games played with large computer screens, headsets, and remotes. What could be more impressive and cool to your friends if they were to feel as if they stepped back in time when they enter your game room?
Arcade machines are a fantastic way to not only create a retro flair to the room but also can be fun to play. They can also provide a fresh feel of gaming when all the other games to choose from are online. Depending on how big your home game room is you may be only able to install one or two arcade machines due to their bulkiness.
Put some research into which arcade machine you would want most in the room and soon you’ll have an exciting, nostalgic aesthetic to your game room.
Build A Drinks Bar
With all the excitement that comes from playing games and hanging out with friends, it would also be a great convenience if you didn’t have to run up to the kitchen just to grab a snack or make a drink. Consider DIY building a snack and drinks bar!
You can easily do this, through woodworking or another method of your choice, by building a bar up against the wall and adding stools for the guests. Your friends will love the chance to maybe get some quieter space without away from the group without leaving the basement by making themselves a drink at the bar.

Make It Cozy
Sometimes you might have so many guests over that there just aren’t enough chairs for everyone to sit. It’s normal then for people to start sitting on the ground which is why the cozier you make the space, the better.
You can create this comfort by investing in a few soft couches, or even pillows and rugs. That way your guests can gather around on the floor to play a board game and still feel comfy.
