Incorporate An Entertainment System
If you are setting up an entertainment room you need to have an entertainment centre to the room. One of the first things that you will need is a good-sized TV – this will be the centre of what you are creating. A big TV is a must as it will be used for everything, from watching movies and TV to gaming.
The next thing you want is a good sound system, this could be retro with a vintage record player linked up to some big speakers or you can go for a more modern sound system.
With most sound systems you will be able to do CD and link your phone so you’re not short of options for music. If you can link the TV up to your sound system also so you can get that surround sound feeling when watching those movies up on the big screen.
As part of your entertainment room, you also want to consider incorporating gaming consoles, such as a Playstation, XBOX or Nintendo console. Another option is to consider incorporating retro games, such as an arcade pinball machine, for instance, or how about a Pac-Man or Space Invaders machine?
Get The Decor Spot On
When it comes to decorating, why not opt for a theme that suits your interests or sense of style? Let’s say gaming is a passion of yours, consider adding gaming memorabilia, like posters for the wall, or action figures from your favourite games, which you can display on shelves. You can even collect some retro gaming consoles or gaming art to decorate the room with – online is probably the best place to purchase these kinds of items.
Or, if it is movies you are into then there are loads of posters you can get to put on the walls in lovely frames to decorate and you could even go down the action figure route for films to as a lot of movies bring out memorabilia to go with it. Music is a nice one as you could get some special edition framed vinyl to go up on the wall or some signed music memorabilia from your favourite genres. There are loads of possibilities for decorating.
Make sure to get enough seating for having people over whether that be a sofa or armchairs to create a movie theatre vibe. You also need to think about how you want to display things like putting the TV on the wall or on a nice cabinet that you can store your DVDs, CDs and games in. Try not to take up too much room with furniture as that will cut off the room and make it cramped with will ruin the vibe you’re trying to create.

This will also give you a space you can just go and get away from life and lose yourself in it just doing what you love.
