What is The Ultimate Bedroom Gaming Setup?

Bedroom Gaming Setup

Ever since video gaming arrived in our homes in the 1980s, many households have struggled with the problem of providing the ultimate gaming environment without having the house overrun by cables and games controllers.

So we are going to take a look at how you can provide a superior gaming experience in your home. Whether it’s a compact gaming area in a child’s bedroom, or a mammoth battle arena space in a man-cave, it shows that you can have plenty of fun when designing the ultimate gaming set up.

Screen considerations

As video gaming often requires a large screen, it’s clear that you will have to tailor your room design around this important feature. If the gamer in your household spends their time playing on the small screen of a Nintendo Switch, then this shouldn’t be too much of an issue. But if they like to play explosive first-person shooters like Counter Strike Global Offensive, then they will probably want more of an immersive experience.

In order to fit everything in the bedroom around a larger screen, you might need to downsize some pieces of furniture like beds and desks. But obviously, you shouldn’t skimp when it comes to quality as all gamers seem to spend an inordinate amount of time in bed. Check out some of the single beds on the Bedstar website to see how you can get a smaller bed that’s capable of providing plenty of rest without blocking that all-important computer screen.

Dealing with cables

Regardless of whether the gamer is using a PC or a console like the PlayStation 4, then there will be plenty of cables to deal with. Not only are these massively unsightly, but they are also surprisingly easy to trip over. But everything from a decent power strip to some handy cable ties can quickly keep things a little more organized in an unruly gamer’s bedroom.

So think about investing in some coaxial cable nail-ins to stop those wires from roaming free, and make some simple headphones hangers to stop them being trampled on. A nice footstool with a storage space can be a great place to stash all of those games controllers, and even a good ottoman bed has often proven to be helpful in hiding all of those Xbox games boxes.

Suitable designs for gaming

There’s a strong chance that the avid gamer in your household won’t be too fussed about implementing the latest Scandinavian design trends. But just because they are into fantasy battle arena games like League of Legends doesn’t mean that the bedroom has to look like the set of a Lord of the Rings movie.

So think about implementing some neutral color tones to keep things from feeling too gloomy on those long nights of gaming. And even if the gamer in your home insists on putting up a poster of their favorite Overwatch character, make sure they put it in a nice frame as there’s nothing worse than messy blu-tack for ruining the overall look of a room.
