Maybe you have a football champion in the making or a billiards master who’s waiting to improve his technique, either way; you need the right accessories to complete this room in your house.   Before you stock the family rec room, you need to have a good idea of how to go about it.  It needs to be roomy, especially if you’re including a pool table, plenty of seating – stools and beanbags are great ideas in game rooms, and proper lighting.  Recessed lighting is perfect for the family game room.

Once you’ve determined how much space you have, it’s on to selecting the right pool table, any game room arcade machines you intend to include and the right dart board.  Ensure there’s enough room to maneuver around this areas – the last thing you want is a cue stick to become a safety hazard.  If there’s room, why not incorporate a small or mini refrigerator and a cabinet stocked with snacks?   Having snacks on hand in your home game room ensures visitors won’t be searching the rest of your house in search of sodas or chips.
