As avid gamers we have to admit that we spend an awful lot of time in our gaming rooms. That’s where it all goes down after all, it’s like our command center. It’s the place where we can unplug from the world that we live and get into the worlds that we create.
Since we spend so much time there it goes without saying that we should put a little effort into making it a comfortable and accommodating place to spend our time. Here are some things you can add to make your gaming room a bit more comfortable and even impressive for when your friends come over.
Your Gaming TV
We’re going to be spending a ton of time looking at our gaming television, so why not make it a good one? If you only have enough money for a single upgrade, this is the one you should focus on. A larger TV is always the way to go, and if you can get one with a really high frame rate that will perform best with today’s fast-paced games.
Your Gaming Chair
We’re also going to be doing an awful lot of sitting. This is why our parents always used to get mad at us. We can sit in front of the TV all day if we’d like. That said, don’t you think it makes a little sense to put some thought into the chair that you use? It can have a big effect on your posture and made sure you don’t have a sore back or rear. They even make specialized gaming chairs that integrate with your game room seamlessly.
An Electric Fireplace
We’re always looking for ways that we can bring a little extra ambience to our gaming room. Whether it’s black lights, lava lamps, or aquariums, as gamers we all like having cool stuff to look at when we lift our eyes from the screens for a bit. One cool upgrade that you may not have considered is an electric fireplace.
The great thing about electric fireplaces is that you can turn them off and on with the click of the button. And if you leave them on for an extended period of time or forget to turn them off you won’t burn the house down. They can also add a little bit of heat when you need it.
A Mini Fridge
We need to drink and eat to stay alive, but isn’t it such a pain to have to run to the kitchen when you’re in the middle of a game? That’s why it makes perfect sense to keep a mini fridge within reach. You can keep sodas, snacks, or even a couple of beers on hand for when things get a little out of control.
A Stereo System
What good is a game room without music? Sure you can listen to it on the speakers from your TV, computer, or smart phone. But why not up the ante and get a dedicated sound system. It can even double as the sound system for your games when you’re not in the mood for music. Just hook it up to the TV and you’re good to go.
