Are you considering getting serious about your gamer room? You might be thinking about starting to stream and starting your own channel or simply want a fun place for your playtime. If you are looking for tips on creating your gaming room, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve covered the basics, but the rest is up to you. Where your lifesize figure of Link goes is up to you. Take a look at our tips for creating your gaming room.
Consider the whole room
There is a general pet peeve of gamers and streamers with their horrendous bedrooms behind them. Yes, we can see your bare mattress and the Monster piles in the trash can, which is a distraction. You could be making a profound speech about democracy, but we’re only noticing that the rest of the room looks like it has been inhabited by a child that can’t look after themselves.
If your room isn’t rented, opt for color. We’re begging you, any color. It doesn’t have to empty your renter’s deposit. Implement it in temporary items, like bedding, curtains, sofas, etc. If you’re interested in playing a PVP game, you might have guests over, so invest in an affordable seating arrangement, like bean bags, a daybed, or squishy chairs.
You don’t need to get rid of your stuff, just buy a display cabinet for them, and let them breathe rather than being stuck in a box. It’s just little moves that make you look professional and don’t distract you from what you’re doing.
Invest in the chair
Office workers and gamers have little in common but this: a lot of long hours at a desk. That results in a bad back over time. Being a PC gamer is already an investment, but I’m afraid you’ll need to spend more money. Prioritize getting a chair that supports your back over an expensive mic or webcam. A better one can come with time, but you must prevent damage to your health.
So, put down the energy drink.
Lighting is everything
The calling card of a gamer room is one with good mood lighting. Neon and LCD are gamers’ best friends. You can set lights to coordinate with the look you’re going for and the style of the décor with strip lights around your screen and room and give your gamers room personality with a neon sign. If you want to splurge, you can even get a customizable sign that says your username or logo on it.
One big light, again, is considered a distraction. You’d be better off mood lighting, especially if you’re playing horror games, to keep your watchers and yourself immersed.
Consider the neighbors
Even with your headphones in, things are likely to get loud. If you’re someone who has a movie playing on your monitor, or monitors, while the controller is away, or you don’t take losing too well, you might want to think about soundproofing.
Games are designed to shock you in one way or another, so invest in some foam soundproofing panels to keep that excitement or horror in your room. Some of them are stylish, coming in patterns like a honeycomb for more fun. If you install them well and replace them if they fall down, it will look good.
And if your gaming room is multi-functional, involving Pictionary or Dungeons and Dragons, soundproofing will be essential. Invest in heavy curtains that will help your heating bill or air con bill, and put down rugs to absorb the noise.
