Although designing a bedroom gaming room is tricky, you need to divide the space available in your bedroom into a fully functional bedroom with an integrated gaming room. And to do that you need to decide on a few essentials, like what kind of furniture you want in your bedroom? What colors do you want for your gaming bedroom? What theme should you give to it? And, if you want a small battle station or an enormous high-tech gaming setup?
Important Tips for Designing a Bedroom Gaming Room:
1. Take Into Account the Total Area of the Room
If you have an option, choose a room other than your main bedroom, which is appropriate in size and can be converted into a gaming bedroom. But for people who live in studio apartments or do not have any extra space available in their homes, they can certainly design their existing bedroom into a bedroom gaming room.
Foremost, consider the space available in your bedroom and then decide on how to use every corner efficiently to integrate an excellent gaming setup and not compromise on the comfort level of the bedroom.
The average size of bedrooms in America is 132 square feet which can accommodate pretty much all the amenities of a bedroom with a full-size bed; having more space in your bedroom will make it simpler for you to set up the battle station with a dual or even a triple monitor setup for gaming and live streaming and home theater for cinematic audio experience.
Designing a gaming bedroom is utilizing space in such a manner that it reflects a perfect blend of comfort and functionality, and for that, you need to give special attention to a few things such as, a gaming chair with good ergonomics for prolonged sitting habits, plan an outstanding wall unit for extra storage of gaming consoles and other gaming related items, and you can also make the corner of the bedroom gaming zone sound proof to avoid any outside interference.
You can even incorporate some shelving or perhaps closed cupboards to carry all of your favorite games. The Stormtrooper figurines from the epic Star Wars triplet area unit are an excellent addition to rec room decoration ideas.
2. Comfort Should Be the Top Priority of Your Gaming Bedroom
A bedroom is supposed to be a restful and relaxing place, if integrating it with a gaming room disrupts that peace, it may make you regret investing in a gaming setup. If you don’t want to compromise your relaxing and cozy corner then try shifting your gaming zone to another corner of the house.
Although if you feel like you have to keep your gaming zone and bedroom integrated then you better plan it accordingly.
Gaming Room furniture
It would be beneficial if you took into account that on gaming nights your bedroom room will welcome numerous visitors and players at once. As a result, there should be enough seats for a large crowd.
You ought to choose your gaming room furniture wisely as a multifunctional bedroom means you need to create extra seating space. And for that you will be needing multiple pieces of furniture, which can result in space congestion. You can also select multifunctional furniture or convertibles for your bedroom gaming room, like a convertible sleeper chair.
Use advanced storage options and leave an appropriate amount of space in the room for easy movement. Avoid filling up your space with too many things cause the less stuffed your bedroom is, the more relaxing it will be.
3. Plan and Design a Battle Station
While designing your battle station, you need to pay close attention to a few details, including the size of the unit that will hold your gaming necessities, the appearance of your entertainment center, and—most importantly—which gaming accessories you want to add to your collection.
The first and primary consideration when constructing a battle station is the unit or table on which your computer, game consoles, and other devices will be placed. You can install a simple computer table or get your own customized unit like in the above picture, depending on how you intend to use it to hold all your high-tech amenities.
Moving on to the appearance of the battle station, one can give any theme to it depending on their choice and creativity. Many people enjoy playing games in a space-themed cafe as it makes them get lost in the virtual world, which enhances their gaming experience. However, if you already have a theme in mind, by all means, go with it. Remember that whatever theme you choose for your battle station should also fit with the atmosphere of your bedroom. For example, the lighting effect you want to use should go well with the color of your bedroom.
Next and most important, what kind of video gaming consoles do you enjoy playing the most? Whether you like playing Fallout or NBA on Xbox, or FIFA on PS4, or you want to play all sorts of video games. Choose the gaming consoles very carefully as they are very expensive, and a lot of people have their preferences regarding video games.

The popularity of this subculture has increased with recent developments, and many are looking forward to forging a career out of it by means of creating their channels on You Tube and other social media platforms.
If you are a professional gamer investing heavily in the gaming setup, we would like to advise a few things to justify your investment.

- Flat or curve

5. Select the Appropriate Audio System and Soundproof Your Space
A gaming room setup is incomplete without the audio systems. The sound effects (SFX) used in games are one of the main components of gamers’ experience. Imagine playing a video game without any SFX, like the squealing noise of the tires on racing games or any other sound like splashes, hits, shots, etc.
To enjoy the SFX of the games, you need to have a proper audio setup, although not everyone can invest in home theaters. So you can install an audio setup according to the budget and the size of your gaming setup. But remember, the more you invest in the audio systems, the more enjoyable the gaming sessions are.
A heavy audio setup means a high level of noise, which will surely upset the other members in the house, or even your neighbors can knock on your door anytime they feel annoyed with the noise you create.
So, if you don’t want to get disturbed during the gaming sessions then you better soundproof your gaming room using multiple soundproofing materials available in the market, like acoustic isolation membrane, acoustic flooring, acoustic foams, fiberglass, etc.
6. Cast Some Light on Your Gaming Setup
New-era video games with high-definition visuals require the right environment to be fully appreciated. And while lighting is a crucial component of the atmosphere in a gaming area, natural lights are not at all a good choice for gaming rooms as natural light can create a disturbance with the visual effects and can also spoil your gaming experience.
