Loft conversions already have the potential to increase the property value of your home by 21%. Residents in the UK said that they would consider paying more for a home with a games room, according to a recent article in Moneywise.
Reasons to Turn Your Loft Conversion Into a Games Room
Sony research has also revealed that 46% of UK adults play video games, and that 9 out of 10 gamers would like a specific room dedicated to this popular hobby. Consider a games room for your loft conversion. They offer a place of recreation and respite that the entire family can enjoy. It can also be a place one or two adults can get away and relax.
Decorating Your Games Room
You’ve decided on a games room for your loft conversion and now you have some design decisions to make. There are several options such as whether to install a billiards or football table.
You may also want to consider whether or not to install an ensuite bathroom to save you time between games. Don’t forget to add plenty of seating for your fellow players and a television that is well positioned and of adequate size for viewing.
Choosing the Games for Your Game Room
Choosing the games is the easy part. Many seasoned gamers will already have a collection. If not, there are several options such as investing in the classics such as Pac Man and Donkey Kong, and including the modern requirements such as Mortal Combat and Assassin’s Creed. Wii games can also be fun for the entire family, with a range of both recreational and physical challenges.
Add an Old Fashioned Sweet Dispenser
Sweets are fun to have in any games room. One option is to invest in a streamlined, yet functional old fashioned sweet dispenser such as this one. Take a break and enjoy!
It’s not all about the score but gamers do love to keep track of who’s winning. Consider decorating the game room walls of your loft conversion with a modern LED scoreboard. If you wish to go the traditional route, there are some great chalkboard scoreboards that look amazing and are fun to use. Who doesn’t love chalk?
