Is the room where you spend so much time playing games in need of some TLC? While it’d be good to invest a small fortune into improving your gaming space, it’s just not feasible for the vast majority of us. However, there are some budget-friendly ways to create the best possible environment for your gaming. Let’s explore some of these ideas right now.

The bare essentials

Paint is cheap, and it can make any room look more appealing. Empty out your room to protect all your vital gear and get to work. You can brighten it, darken it, whatever takes your fancy. But a fresh lick of paint will give your games room an instant boost to its appearance. Want something a little more urban or military-like? Then think about exposing the brick on your walls. It’s just a case of taking down your plasterboard and filling up any holes – and it leaves you with a stunning backdrop for your gaming.

Decor

Think about using old posters – or even the inserts from your favorite, old games that are now out of date. A few shelves will come in handy, too, so that you can keep your games stored away tidily. There’s no need to go to town too much, of course. If like most other gamers, you enjoy playing with the lights down, there is little point in investing in expensive decor anyway.

Furniture

Furniture in need of an upgrade? Again, there’s no need to spend a fortune. There are plenty of cheap gaming chairs you can buy new on the market. And the likes of eBay and Craigslist are always excellent for picking up a used seat at a bargain price. It’s the same principle for storage. You can buy cupboards and chests for a few dollars a pop, and upcycle them to your liking.

Sound system

As any hardcore gamer will tell you, the better quality of sound you hear, the better you will be able to play. All those small little details in the sound stage can reveal where your opponents are hiding, or if any danger is sneaking up on you from behind. Of course, high-end surround sound systems can cost a small fortune. But look at the used market, and you should be able to pick up a spectacular bargain. It’s also worth finding out if there are any yard sales near where you live, as you can pick up things like this for peanuts.

Display

Look around at the prices of a new monitor or TV, and you might well have a heart attack. But there’s no need to spend quite so much. It’s more than possible to create a projection TV from an LCD monitor and an overhead projector. While the quality won’t match the latest Ultra HD efforts, it’s a cost-effective solution for a better gaming experience.
