Since the beginning of the new decade, many homeowners have started to embrace the world of DIY and interior design. Unsurprisingly, casino-themed rooms – and games rooms for generally – have been at the top of the list.
Designing your own casino-themed room isn’t easy. It takes significant planning, care, and execution. Not to mention, you also need to get the budget right. However, after a few weeks, you should be able to get everything completed. Before you start, though, you’ll need a helping hand. Luckily, this guide is here to provide you that.
Let’s dive into the details surrounding how to design a casino-themed room, from the lighting to the walls.
Start with the Games
Before anything else, you need to figure out what games you’re going to include. Common examples include:
• A poker table (and kit)
• A roulette wheel
• Slot machines
For further inspiration, it’s recommended that you take a look at online gambling sites. Each site offers a different variety of games, some of which you might have never heard of before. When this is the case, you can test them out and consider adding them to your casino-themed room at home.
Furniture, Furniture, Furniture
Furniture plays an important part in any room in the house – especially a casino-themed one.
Although you don’t need to go overboard, you should focus on luxury (yet still affordable furniture). A nice couch would be a welcome addition, as well as a glass table for food and drinks. Also, don’t be afraid to add some artistic décor for a more luxurious feel.
Consider Adding a Bar
Speaking of drinks, you should consider adding a bar if you’re feeling really ambitious.
Contrary to popular opinion, adding a miniature bar to your home isn’t as difficult as it sounds. Generally, you’ll need a bar table, stools, and a wall shelf (or rack) for the drinks. If you take a look on Amazon, you can get most of these at an affordable price, which is good to know.
Include a TV
In your at-home casino, you’ll spend most of the time playing the different games that you have. However, it’s also a good idea to add a TV so that you have some side entertainment to use in-between times. Plus, a TV will also add some extra atmosphere in the background, which is great for when you have any friends over.
Use Smart Lighting
If you ask any casino design expert, they’ll tell you that the lighting is one of the most important factors of a casino.
For maximum flexibility, you should add a smart light bulb to the ceiling. This way, you can connect your smartphone to it and change the color (and tone) any time you like. For example, if you’re playing in your casino at night, you’ll probably want to dim the lighting and choose an atmospheric color, such as dark red or a vibrant blue. With a smart light, this is easy to do.
Last but not least, make sure to add some speakers to the wall. This will enable you to play some music while you’re playing, whether it’s relaxing instrumentals or rap playlists.
Remember, it’s best to use wireless Bluetooth speakers so that you can control them via your smartphone, which makes life a lot easier for you.
