If you have a basement, you can use it for different purposes: make a basement bar, kitchen, bathroom, family room, home theater, or make your dream come true – create a playroom! A basement playroom is a great idea for everyone: both adults and children can play various games and video games there, a man can use it as his man’s den and invite his friends there. A playroom should be a combination of comfort and technological assortment – from the latest consoles to a cool, relaxing couch.
Properly insulate your basement – do it yourself or hire specialists, otherwise you won’t be able to spend time here on cold days. Remember that a basement can be a little damp. So treat him while isolating – you don’t want your consoles to be spoiled, do you? Consider adding a window-mounted air conditioner to eliminate some of the heating problems that come with merging large amounts of electronics. The general cooling effect makes your playroom the most popular room in the house.
Soundproofing the playroom should be your top priority so as not to disturb your neighbors or family. Soundproofing also helps in improving the sound quality in the room. You can either get a contractor to soundproof the room, or you can make a basic contribution yourself that can absorb noise. Add frames to walls and walls, and use layers of insulation foam or drywall specifically designed for building noise control. Carpets, thick curtains, and free-standing or wall-mounted acoustic panels also absorb noise.
A game room has space for all kinds of games – poker, table football and hockey, billiards, various table games, bowling and maybe video games. If you choose video, plan and do the wiring well. Cover or tie any wires under the carpet behind the shelves so they don’t spoil the appearance of the room. Get a good-looking, high-quality extension cord instead of running cords around the wall outlet.
For online gamers, there should be a dedicated wireless network that isn’t affected by speed issues. Get a gaming router to connect your console to.
The game room shouldn’t be overly well lit, but the lighting should be such that the space is both functional and stylish. Depending on your needs, lighting should be in different places or in specific areas of the room. Remember, when deciding on a projector setting, the room should be completely dark for the best output. A TV set should not have a light on the wall opposite the TV set. Prefer the remote control lighting for more fun.
