In small spaces, it can be difficult to provide enough proper background illumination to prevent the eye from being overwhelmed by the light coming from the main playing screen. In this room, a large light bar has been installed above the viewing screen, adding energy and brightness to what otherwise would be a very cramped space. The clever use of light colors and pale earth tones adds an additional layer of airiness to this small room, while two dedicated gaming chairs allow for hours of uninterrupted play enjoyment. The speakers have been mounted to frame the main screen, nicely complimenting the light bar above, adding an additional subtle focus on the action unfurling on the screen.

Everything from headphones to gaming-themed merchandise adds a subtle emphasis to the action on the screen, while an existing hemispherical couch and two screens allow the whole family to enjoy an enhanced spectator experience. By taking advantage of an existing recess in the wall, the room is exposed to plenty of natural light without shining directly on the gaming screens.

Even in small spaces, the right use of video game room furniture can transform an otherwise neutral corner of the house into an immersive arcade experience. While keeping the decor to a bare minimum, the use of multiple screens and side-by-side driving simulators allow for competitive gaming excitement in this otherwise bland games room. Light pastel colors and flooring design in this brightly illuminated room help draw the eye towards the wall-mounted screens, while a minimalist use of the space allows it to be quickly transformed for non-gaming use.
