You are currently viewing 4 Key Considerations When Building a Casino-Style Game Room

Are you thinking about building a game room in your home where you can relax and unwind after a day at the office? Maybe you would like a place to gather with friends on the weekend? If you enjoy gambling games, a casino-style game room may be the answer. There are ways to give your hideaway the look of a professional casino without the risk of losing your hard-earned money. Here are some ideas to get you started.


The lighting used in casinos add to the atmosphere of the room. Neon signs, like the kind used in a tavern, work well in this type of room. Belt and rope lights also are a nice touch for accent lighting. Use mirrors together with lighting to add to the atmosphere.


A mix of different types of seating will induce guests to stay longer by providing a comfortable place to relax. Include a combination of sofas, club chairs, and bar stools to create areas for talking, eating and drinking, and enjoying some friendly competition.


There are many options to create a special atmosphere in your game room. A single style can be employed, or a mixture of various items for a more eclectic look. Some additions that work well in a casino atmosphere are dart boards, karaoke machines, and other items that promote interaction among guests. Choose wall art to complement a theme, such as posters from famous musical acts in Las Vegas. Old movie posters can also be a noteworthy addition, giving vintage appeal. Whatever your personal taste, the room can reflect this in the decor.

Casino Games

The heart of the room will be the games and the options are endless. Consider your own favorites, but also include games that family members and friends will enjoy. Traditional game tables such as poker tables or roulette are good centerpieces, while other options such as video poker machines or slot machines are good to place around the perimeter of the room.

Optional Additions

You may want to incorporate a bar into your casino room. Including a mini-fridge, a bar sink, and storage will make cleanup easy and keep the room organized. If you don’t want a full bar counter, a piece of furniture that doubles as a storage unit can be helpful and save space, such as a credenza or a bar cabinet. Other additions to complete the room can also include a flat screen television, a media streaming device for playing movies and music, and an integrated sound system.

The little details are what make a casino room special and exciting. Take time to decide on all the features before starting construction. This room has the potential to become whatever you dream it to be.
