Whether you’re obsessed with digital gaming or good old-fashioned playing cards, create a space to sit back and unwind after a long, hard day. Not only should your gaming space be cozy, but it should also be stylish! Invite your friends over to a carefully curated space that looks welcoming and warm. Rather than a traditional sofa or seating area, try a pouf or a luxury beanbag. Designer floor cushions are all the rage for 2022, and it’s easy to see why. This laud-back look is perfect for playing games or just chilling out. Complete your space with piles of comfy pillows. Add a bar cart for refreshments, and include snacks for easy entertainment. Mix and match trending colors like teal, periwinkle, and yellow for a fun-loving atmosphere. Add live greenery or a houseplant for an unexpected twist on your gaming décor – just make sure it’s a plant that thrives in low-lighting!

Gaming Décor Ideas: Video Game Chic

If you’re a top gamer, show your passion for your craft! Whether you prefer an Xbox or a ps4, show off your skills throughout your home. From Minecraft to Call of Duty, embrace the gamer aesthetic by choosing a piece of wall décor that highlights this popular pastime. Select a modern canvas print that adds a neon touch to your space. We offer tons of artsy ideas when it comes to gaming-inspired artwork. Hang your piece of wall art over your seating area to complete your space. Decide between a single and multi-panel print depending on your décor goals. Make sure to hang your wall art at eye-level and no higher. Your artwork should be directly across from your television for optimal visual balance.

Game Room Décor: Pro Tips

If you’ve decided on a classic single-panel print, consider whether you want your piece framed or unframed based on these tips:

“Unframed canvas is artwork that is not set into any frame. Because of frameless borders, these artworks can adapt to any style. Unframed canvas prints are loved for their sleek and modern look. The minimalist look blends well with contemporary furniture and virtually all interior styles.

Framed artwork looks complete and polished. Because of the small gap between the canvas and the frame, the canvas print seems to be floating inside the frame, giving your artwork a truly unique look. One of the best benefits of framed artwork is that it looks very light and unbulky, which results in a clean appearance.”

Game Room Wall Art Sizes

When selecting the right size canvas for your game room, reference these passages 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.

Game Room Décor: Pro Tips

Follow this pro tip from our expert article on how to hang wall art the right way:

“Sometimes bigger really is better, and that rings true when it comes to large wall art! While you may not want a print to overwhelm your space, homeowners tend to pick pieces that are too small. For example, if you’re hanging a piece of art above a credenza, the canvas should be almost as wide as the piece of furniture itself! A print that is too small can look awkward and misplaced. Whereas a well-proportioned piece of large wall art can transform your space in seconds.”

Stylish & Modern Game Room Décor

You can easily balance style and practicality in your game room. Hanging wall art will not affect the functionality of your space, but it will add a splash of style!

Game Room Décor: Pro Tips

If you have young children who will be enjoying your game room, consider this tip from our resident design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz:

"When it comes to decorating with kids and pets, you don’t have to sacrifice style, but it’s important to consider how you’ll feel if something gets dinged, torn or ruined. Remember that it will be a space for living and playing, so make it stylish with pieces that can bear dirty feet and or layers of fur and can be easily replaced."

Game Room Color Palette Ideas

Don’t be afraid to play around with bright colors in your game room. Starting with a neutral color palette will allow you to add hints of vibrant hues while still retaining a sophisticated atmosphere.

Black & Blue Game Room Ideas

Consider pairing sleek black décor with a pop of color like vibrant sky blue.

ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz expands on the bright blue décor trend:

“When we think of summer, bright blue skies come to mind. This is why interior designers voted blue as one of the top summer interior design trends for 2022. An accent wall, using richer blues or incorporating lighter blue linens and décor will give to your space that “Santorini” vibe. If you’re a minimalist at heart, pops of bright cobalt blues can bring a bit of vibrancy to your room. Incorporate this sunny hue into your decor as a constant reminder of clear skies and the sun on your skin.”
