Versatile Game Room

wModern-Game-room-Evergreen-Elm-Warner-Groves-at-Morrison-Ranch-006A game room like this one, in the Evergreen Elm model in Warner Groves at Morrison Ranch, offers the opportunity for versatility in your home. Let’s take a look at how this room adds to the convenience and functionality of your home’s living space.

An alternative for dining: If you are planning a small two-couple dinner party, this round table for four creates a more intimate dining experience. By moving the party away from the kitchen and into this more private room, you can make the dinner feel special. Consider having appetizers at the kitchen island, then moving the meal into the game room where you have the table set and ready for your guests.

As homework central: If your children don’t want to be too separated from the rest of the family while doing homework, this room may be your best solution. The table is large enough to spread out papers and books. And the space is separated from the rest of the living area, yet the interior windows eliminate any feeling of isolation. A parent’s help is one call away. And as a parent, you can easily monitor the action to make sure procrastination is not playing a part in why tonight’s homework is taking so long to finish!

For ongoing projects: Has your child entered in the school science fair? Do you have some crafts or sewing you want to focus on for holiday or birthday gifts? Maybe you need to gather information together for this year’s taxes. As an extra room and table, you can take it over for a week or two without interfering with the rest of the living space. And if you decide to leave it another day before tidying up, why not?

For playing games: Of course, it is a game room after all. Whether it’s an evening of bridge with friends, a rousing Monopoly tournament with your kids, or ongoing games of Settlers of Catan, this room and table is ready to take on all comers. And if you need to stop in the middle because bedtime has come around before you expected it, the game will be ready for everyone tomorrow evening. What could be better?

Game Room Ready

Create a game room for your family and friends. With a game table in the center and a bookshelf to hold your family’s favorite board or card games, you’re ready for fun anytime.

More and more, people are choosing to unplug in the evening and spend time playing games as a family or with friends rather than watching television. This table is ideal for bridge or other four-person games. If you want to add more people, choose a table that expands when you want it to.

The design choices in this room suit the game-playing mood. The open shelving allows the board games to play an accessory role. The artwork has a playful ambience. Houseplants scattered around the room add warmth. Even the ceiling fan has a game-like style. When designing a game room, why not let the personality of the space reflect its function?

Tucked away from the main living space, this game room is ideal for ongoing Monopoly tournaments or a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle that will take more than one evening to finish.
