Combine all of your favorite games and creative outlets to form the coolest rec room on the block. Play a round of pool or ping pong, jam out on your guitar, challenge yourself to arcade games, and watch a couple of movies all in the same place!

If you’re super passionate about one game, use it as inspiration for your entire space! Whether it’s PacMan, Pikachu, or Princess Peach, use your favorite video game characters and their worlds as game room wall decor. Don’t want to stick to just one game room theme? Mix and match for a playful variety!
