But there is one room left and you are unsure what to use it for. Well, let us help you with this one; we think it should be a games room.
Now, hear us out. You may think that you do not need a games room in your house but there are many reasons why families are now choosing to have one. Why? Well, it is a way for your family to spend time together and enjoy playing games. It also provides entertainments when you have guests round or if your children have invited their friends over.

Plus, let’s not forget that arcade machines are a fantastic way to practice hand-eye coordination and your reactions, as well as making you think about strategy.
Choosing a theme & kitting it out
Decide on the style you want. A really popular theme is country and western, like the old taverns where the men would sit on wooden stools and the beer would be in wooden barrels. Passion 4 Events has a lot of furniture that you can hire out, such as their Barrel Tables! If you prefer something a little more classy, you can try the Poseur table or the Champagne Table . If you are looking for some alternatives to boring seating, and want to fit in with a retro arcade theme, then have a look at an unconventional chair like the Pacman Seat. It’s highly likely that you will have friends round to relax and socialize, so these bean bag lounge seats are perfect for a games room!
Don’t forget the Pool table!
No games room is complete without a pool table. Friends will flock around for a game of pool and a few beers, especially since most of the pubs have nowadays removed them.
