A kitchen might bring families together for meals and conversation, but a game room adds laughter and teamwork to the mix. If you want to strengthen your relationships with family and friends, consider adding a game space to your home. Dedicate a room for a more permanent hangout. Or incorporate good game room elements to your family room and pull out Twister when the gang’s in the mood.
We’ve created two designs. Which one suits you?
We think our Lucky Collection was made for a game room. Just look at the dice-inspired ottomans! The powerful combination of black and white creates a statement, and the extra thick seat cushions provide comfort. These pieces easily move around to create just the right layout for whatever game you’ve got in mind.
Sometimes game night is video game night. Or maybe your family loves to play along with Alex Trebek on Jeopardy! You’ll need a media center to hold your television and supplies. Our Hampton Bay Entertainment Center features two open compartments for your electronic components and two drawers to stash games as well as controllers. The ivory finish provides a nice complement to the room’s darker furnishings.
Finally, you’ll need a place to break out the board games. Tucked in a corner, our Bay Front Table is a fun choice. It’s also a great place for hosting the neighborhood Euchre night. With a tempered glass table, you won’t worry about spills. And the bar height is convenient for entertaining.
Keeping Your Options Open
If you plan to use your room for more than gaming, you’ll love the look of this sectional. The Fontaine Collection by Cindy Crawford is comfortable enough for a rousing game of charades, and stylish enough to fit in with the rest of your décor. Its neutral color alleviates worries about stains, and the ottoman provides a place for the popcorn bowl.
For video game night – Wii bowling, anyone? – choose the Hudson Media Center to hold your console and games. When the games are over and it’s time to unwind, the piece has enough room to conveniently hold movies and CDs. Storage behind the wooden doors includes four pull-out drawers. And three sections at the top hold your DVR, Blueray player and gaming device. Sizes are available from 36” to 62” (shown.)
If you have room, our Larkspur Collection Gathering Table provides a convenient spot for the family to play checkers. Or use the table for craft or school projects. It also makes the perfect snack break area. The self-storing butterfly leaf makes it a versatile addition to the room, and the burnish finish and dark cherry stain make the handsome piece a welcome design addition.
