How to Design a Games Room

The first thing that you need to decide is the space that you will devote to your games room. Most games rooms are designed by males for males, but if you are sharing your space with a wife or a girl friend then it will almost certainly be necessary to get her onside, so include her in the planning right from the outset. Let her know that she can use it occasionally for entertaining her girlfriends, for instance offer to include a bingo machine.

Once you have the go-ahead then decide what games you want to include. One that is the top of most people’s list is pool or snooker. Work out how much space you have for a pool or snooker table and use that to determine the size of the table you will buy.

It is always worthwhile buying a quality slate bed table though you might be able to buy a used pub table, budget from £800 to £2,000. Table football is always popular and you can buy a decent setup for around £200 to £300. You will need a reasonable large screen for video games, and a dartboard. Comfortable seating is also important.

 You will probably want to include a bar and a number of casino games. Roulette, poker and blackjack like those at Gaming Club are the standard games. If you have the space, then add a dedicated poker table and don’t forget all the poker accessories. Poker tables are available for 5 to 8 players and for 8 to 12 players and although they take up a fair about of space you can use the table for other games such as blackjack and roulette by adding different table tops.

Alternatively, you could simply buy a number of alternative gaming felts and use them on any table. Some gaming surfaces have sticky rubber backings which are an excellent solution.
