It’s that time of year again. Where Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays are spent in front of the television routing on your favorite football teams while chowing down on delicious game day food. While watching the big game from your living room couch can be enjoyable, the best experience is when you have a game room designated just for the football season and the occasional movie night. But, where do you begin with décor? Here are our ultimate game room décor tips for football season.  

Furniture Fit for Lounging

One of the most important things to consider when choosing game room décor, is to make sure the furniture is comfortable. A typical football game lasts 2-3 hours. On Sundays, people typically watch the games all day long at different time slotsThat is a long time to be sitting on uncomfortable furniture. When picking out the furniture for the room, go with comfort over appearance to make sure you and your guests can lounge and be comfortable for the games all day.

Stadium Sound Quality

Sound quality is huge when watching Football. Investing in a quality surround sound speaker system will make it feel like you are watching the game from the stands in the stadium, instead of on your couch. This will give you and your guests the ultimate game watching experience. It’s also a good idea to look into sound proofing the room, or at least implementing a few sound barriers. This way, the rest of the people in the house are not bothered by the loud speakers and cheering fans. 

The Big Screen

There’s nothing worse than trying to watch a football game but having to squint your eyes to look at who has the ball or what the score is. Having a big enough screen is extremely important for watching football games. You can either invest in a big flat screen or even set up a projector to display the screen larger on a screen or blank wall. 


Add Mood Lighting

Depending on the time of day you are watching the football games, you may want different lighting. During the day, you might want the room brighter and windows open. At night, however, you might want the lights dimmer. Adding dimmersrecess lighting, and lamps can help create whatever lighting you prefer while watching your favorite team fight for a win. 

Nearby Snacks and Drinks

You can’t have the ultimate game day, without delicious snacks and a variety of refreshing drinks. Having a bar in your game room décor is an extremely popular wish list item for most football fans. If you’re not able to set up a bar, you can always bring in a mini fridge or cooler to store your food and drinks. If this is still not an option, you can always bring in a little food/bar cart into the room from the kitchen just for game time.

More Memorabilia

Your game room décor is the perfect place to go overboard. With other rooms in the house, you don’t want to be too overwhelming with your décor style. However, with a game room there is no limit to how many frames, jerseys, or football player figurines you can have in the room. The more memorabilia, the better. It will just increase the team support and energy in the room for game time. 

Add a Halftime Activity

Adding a pool table, dart board, or other fun games to your game room can be a fun way to kill time during the football game’s halftime. Adding other fun activities in the room can help make it a multi-purpose game room as well. This way, even when football isn’t on, you and your family can use the room for family game nights too.
