With the economy being so slow and many people choosing to stay home for their entertainment instead of going out, contractors are experiencing an increase in people finishing their basements to suit their entertainment needs. This article will describe the ways to transform your unfinished basement into a great game room complete with game room furniture and a pool table with billiard balls where you can entertain yourself and your friends and family for years to come.
A lot of people that want to create a game room usually have a specific vision for what they would like for space. If they are huge poker or blackjack players, they may wish to put the card table as a focal point whereas if they enjoy playing billiards, they may want the pool table to be the main center of attention. Whatever you want, make certain to include all of your ideas to your builder before the renovation begins\starting so you can use the space in the best way possible.
Once you have created a plan and have a good builder or contractor, who has thought of everything like the electrical wiring that you may want to house several 70’s and 80’s video arcade games or maybe even a large screen television Bank of viewing screens. It is much easier to put all of those things in before the drywall, and finishing touches are installed than afterward, obviously.
A wonderful example of someone who finished their basement for a game room is a man living in Chicago that was a proud Irish American who wanted to recreate an Irish Pub complete with gaming tables. He still has relatives living in Ireland, so for several years on his trips to Ireland he collected different pub things for his planned room including having some old Irish beams and old pub flooring from a tavern that was being destroyed to be shipped over. His builder used the old beams on the ceiling and the floor boards to make it feel like an old Irish Pub. He had a gorgeous handcrafted bar installed with a tap of Guinness of course as the main beverage offered. He had a beautiful pool table with green felt to pick up the colors of the Irish flag to coordinate the entire theme. He also has a special satellite to receive all of the Ireland out bol games on his large plasma TV screen as well. He plans on living there forever because he loves his Irish game room and pub so much as do all of his Chicago friends and family.
