When your kids have moved out from the house, there must be a room or two left unused. If you’re not too fond in using it as an office area, why don’t you try to change that extra room as your play room a.k.a. the game room. After all, you deserve it after spending a long time to work.

Since now is the tech time, a wide screen TV and a game console with tons of game choices would be a good idea to fill in the room.
Since it’s supposed to be a family room, you can add a jukebox, a soccer table, and a game board table to increase the variety of he fun. After thinking about everything that you want to put inside your game room, you can start to put some personal touch to build the fun mood.
