Competitive Color Schemes

One way to ensure visual cohesion (in tandem with eclectic details,) is to choose a unified color scheme. If you want a more traditional, serious look, go with deep tones. For lighthearted, carefree decor, choose bright hues.

Black and Blue Game Room Ideas

Black and blue is a foolproof color combo. Whether you want to give off a sophisticated or social vibe, these two colors are incredibly versatile. Choose a pale blue for a youthful look, or go with navy for a refined touch. Use black as a hint of drama throughout your space.

Game Room Wall Décor Sizing

Looking for the perfect canvas size to hang in your game room? Check out these comprehensive paragraphs from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:

“Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.

For instance, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet wide, multiply 9 by 0.6 to get the low end of the ideal height range. Then multiply 9 by 0.75 to get the high end of the ideal height range. Do the same for your wall's 5 feet width. The ideal height of the canvas would be 5.4 feet - 6.75 feet and the ideal width would be 3 feet - 3.75 feet.

Wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such as a fireplace, a bed or a couch, should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's width. To measure the ideal art size above your furniture, consider this example: If your couch is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75. You need a canvas between 3.96 feet and 4.5 feet wide to fit impressively above the couch.”

Decide whether you prefer the look of a large, single-panel canvas, or a modern multi-panel layout. Once you’ve chosen your perfect size and layout, reference these pro tips for how to hang your wall art:

Game Room Wall Art: Pro Tip

Any designer will tell you that the most common mistake homeowners make, is hanging their art too high. Large wall art should be hung at eye level. While it may seem low at first glance, eye-level artwork is a longstanding gallery standard. Guests should not have to crane their necks to look at your prized prints. Your artwork should be in plain view, and blend seamlessly with the rest of your interior. If you’re hanging a piece of art above a sofa, leave no more than 6”-8” in between the top of the couch and the bottom of the print.
