I saw this great article that PoolTables.com posted up on Twitter about ideas for a game room and it really got me thinking. What are some of the best ways to set up a game room or recreational room. Of course the first idea was to put a pool table in the room ( my first idea as well). However, if you don’t have an extra room or the space to bring in a full size pool table try turning your dinning room into the next game room. Utilize your space by adding a tabletop kit where you can use the room for multiple purposes. It’s a great way to make the most with the space you have. Of course if you have that great table you can always use it for some great card games including poker, texas hold ’em which are always crowd pleasers. The garage is also a space that can be used as a game room. With a few clean up tips and remodeling for different seasons the garage could be the next best hang out spot.
Of course if you do plan on adding a pool table to your game room make sure it functions first. Check the dimensions of the room with the dimensions of the pool table (here is an article that will help you make sure it fits). Make sure the space is a good place that will allow for traffic flow between games. Don’t forget about seating some of the most fun I have had is watching pool. Invest in storage and accessories to keep the room neat and organized.
