Your home in Park City should have everything you need to make your stay perfect—from easy access to world-class ski resorts to an epic game room.
Maybe your home currently doesn’t have a game room, or maybe it doesn’t suit your style. To help spark some game room ideas, your Park City realtors are here with amazing game room options.
Design a Multipurpose Theater
You really can’t go wrong with a theater room. From having plenty of comfortable seating to enjoy full meals while movie-watching, there is plenty to recommend a home theater room.
Also, along with playing movies, you can hook up various gaming consoles to your theater room projector. Any gamer would love the chance to play their favorite games and compete on the big screen.
Opt for an Indoor Basketball Court

The basement doesn’t have to be a wasted space when you opt to have an indoor basketball court installed. Depending on how much room you have to commit—and the height of your ceilings—you can at least fit a half-court, leaving plenty of room to run and play.
Also, if you end up renting out your Park City home as a vacation home when you don’t need it, having an indoor basketball court can really help your house stand out.
Set Up A Virtual Reality Room
Virtual reality (VR) video games have come a long way since they were first introduced a few years ago. However, playing some VR games can still require you to dedicate a significant amount of space.
While many people can’t simply set aside one room of their home to be mostly empty, if you want to set up a high-tech game room, you can’t go wrong with a virtual reality room. Some systems also allow you to hook up a TV or computer monitor to let others watch what you are doing in the virtual world, and some VR games can be played alongside someone else, making this an inclusive game room option.
Aside from the gaming equipment itself—VR system and PC or console—all you will really need is to follow the VR system instructions in virtually mapping the room, and you are ready to play.
Make An Amazing Kids’ Play Space

If you are looking to cater your epic game room toward the children in your life—and the young at heart—then nothing will beat setting up an adventurous kids’ space. Naturally, a key feature of any kid zone is a slide, which you can have it end in a ball pit for extra fun or just have a crash mat at the bottom.
Other additions like a rock climbing wall, rope course, and padding the floor with play mats can help transform your game room into an active play space that will encourage movement and activity.
Choose An Elegant Card Room
For a more inviting game room for adults whose tastes run to cards, you can dedicate at least part of your game room to be a card-playing space. To lean into the more decadent style of high roller rooms in Las Vegas casinos, furnishings should follow classic lines.
Materials like wood, brocade, crystal chandeliers, and wallpaper is an excellent way to craft an elegant card room for you and your friends to enjoy. For the color scheme, stick with warm colors like brown, cream, and gold to create an inviting space.
Elevate Your Pool Room
You can easily combine the card room with a pool table and bar area, embracing the speakeasy vibe when you carry over the elegance from the card room. Even if you want to focus on the pool table area and bar space, choose an architectural feature to highlight to help characterize the space.
For instance, look at the example photo above. With the exposed beams, patterned wood flooring, and facade rock wall makes leaning into the 1920s speakeasy decorating theme is a natural fit.
Go Classic Gaming With An Arcade
Take your game room back to the classic style of video games when you bring in arcade games. Everything from themed pinball to arcade fighting games can make their way into your classic gaming room, bringing hours of endless fun without needing to dump endless quarters to play.
For the color scheme around the arcade room, you can really go wild. Neon lighting adds to the overall atmosphere, and you can dig up posters from the 80s to better embrace the theme. To keep things more low-key, shiplap on one of the walls along with home theater lighting can bring in the arcade game room vibe without making the room stick out from the rest of your home.
With these ideas to help fire up your creativity, there are really no bounds to what you can do to revolutionize your game room and make it a completely engaging space.
