You can also transform the basement into your game room by giving it that rustic look with pieces that remind you of the good old days. These items could range from video games to billiards and board games. Here are some tips on how to decorate your room with DIY models of old school games.

Mount a Dart Board

A game of darts is always refreshing. It gets better when you compete with your family members or friends. You don’t need a lot of space to enjoy playing darts; you can place the board in a small area. It will serve as not only a gaming object but also a decoration for your room.

To protect your wall from stray darts, consider doing a DIY protective barrier. Build a darts cabinet using wine corks. The cabinet will add a dash of glamor and style to your room and keep your walls protected.

Use Pixel Art Decorations

Using the 8-bit artworks of the 80s and 90s popular games to decorate your room will give you a nostalgic feeling.

Turn Your Basement Into a Casino

You don’t need to turn your basement into a real casino to achieve the feel of being in one. Get a craps or poker table and set it up in your basement for the perfect adults’ game room. Complete the look by printing your favorite casino game’s characters in giant banners.

Do you fancy the Mega Moolah slot? If so, consider hanging wall decorations of the African savannah theme from the game. If you are great with art, you can also paint a mural to create a gaming atmosphere in the room.

Also, add some giant poker cards wall hangings. You could also have them come in rugs, curtains, or throw pillows. The whole basement will look and feel like a casino.
