Five Family-Friendly Game Room Ideas

Families are always looking for ways to spend more time together. A game room is a wonderful solution! In addition to creating a gathering space for your family members, it’s also great for entertaining. When it comes to designing your family game room, there are many ways to do so. One option is game tables. 

Here’s a closer look at five indoor game tables guaranteed to bring the family together or keep the party going and the fun flowing.

1. Poker Tables

Sure, you can play poker around a dining or coffee table. But why would you when a poker table elevates the experience while keeping things organized?

In addition to serving as a focal point in your room, a poker table has many features that will enhance your play, including everything from a felt surface that makes handling cards easier to cup holders for keeping beverages handy.

Poker tables also come in a variety of styles and sizes – meaning you’re sure to find one that fits both your design sensibility and your space needs.

Don’t play much poker? While we recommend learning this exhilarating game, poker tables are also convenient for a variety of other card and board games.

2. Pool Tables

Whether you’re a longtime pool aficionado or you’re just starting to learn, having your own pool table can be a game changer. Whether you frequently invite friends over to play or you just plan to get in some solo practice to wind down after work, a pool table can keep things exciting.

Plus, a high-quality pool table is a lifelong investment. It will keep your family connected for years to come.

3. Ping Pong Tables

Sure, ping pong is fun. But did you know it also has other benefits, too? According to Metro, it helps develop mental acuity, improves hand-eye coordination, burns calories, and might even defend against dementia. It’s also easy on the joints, which means you can continue playing it throughout your life.

And then there’s the bonding factor. Because ping pong is appropriate for both the young and the young at heart, buying a ping pong table for your game room is the perfect way to keep people connected.

4. Foosball Tables

People are fanatical about foosball and with good reason. Like ping pong, it can help keep you active, boost your brain, relax your mind, and support socialization. Most foosball fans have to head to their favorite bar to play. But when you add a foosball table to your game room, you can play anytime you want. Consider also introducing a bar and bar stools to make your home everyone’s new favorite hangout.

5. Air Hockey Tables 

Who doesn’t love a good game of air hockey? One of our favorite things about this table game is that anyone can play because it requires little skill or experience. Plus, the more you play, the better you’ll get. All the while, you’ll be developing skills to enhance your performance like increased reaction time, faster reflexes, and better hand-eye coordination.

As with all other game tables, air hockey tables are available in many designs, from arcade-style to traditional wood. Depending on your aesthetic and practical goals, the right air hockey game table can transform your game room into your family’s favorite place to be.
