Home game rooms Calvin Schellbach with ListPix Studios

Seeking a state-of-the-art fun zone? Turns out, they’re not just for kids! As homeowners search for properties with every amenity under one roof, from home spas to gallery-like car garages and even nightclubs and vodka tasting rooms (yes, really), game rooms feel like a fairly reasonable ask. However, homes around the U.S., Mexico, and the Caribbean are upping the ante when it comes to entertainment. These days, it’s apparently not uncommon to install full-blown arcade spaces with over two dozen games, bowling alleys with multiple lanes and its own branding, or glow-in-the-dark casinos with high-end slot machines and multi-seat roulette tables. Of course, it’s also about the design. Even if a game room doesn’t have a record-breaking number of games, many designers have opted to install aesthetically pleasing rooms, like a San Francisco home with an antique bar from a British pub, or a Montana game room with charming, mountain-style design. Take a look for yourself with these nine incredible home game rooms.
