How to Create the Perfect Game Room

Perfect Game Room

Updated October 11, 2019

Inspired by you, Taylor Morrison’s award-winning floor plans include creative spaces specifically designed to fit the modern lifestyle. One of our most popular bonus rooms is the game room – and the reason is simple – every household needs a dedicated place to kick back and have a good time.

If your new build home features a game room, this is the post for you. You’ll find a ton of great ideas to decorate, arrange or modify one of the most flexible rooms in your floor plan.

The beauty of a game room is that it means something different to every person. From a classic billiards ensemble to board game paradise or a cozy place to unwind and watch the ‘Big Game,’ the perfect game room is a place to have fun!

Multitasking in Your Sacramento New Home

Consider using the 2nd floor loft as a game room

Get more flex out of flex space by setting up a dual-purpose room. This game room includes a cozy sectional and flat screen just in time for the start of football season plus a pair of desks for a mini home office or homework station.

The Sawyer plan at Madeira East – Viana III features a large bonus space at the top of the stairs where such an arrangement would be ideal. An advantage of putting a big TV in your game room is that you can keep the great room television free.
