Are you a Star Wars fan? A trekkie? Do you like anything space-related? Then look to a galaxy far, far away to find inspiration for the ultimate video game room.
Start your video game room design with an "enterprising" palette. The first color most people think of when they think of outer space is black. But a room that's entirely black may look more like a black hole than the Milky Way. Instead, place a nighttime sky mural on the ceiling. Paint the walls a dark blue. For the floor, try gray carpet. Add LED strip lighting where the floor meets the baseboards. Is Star Wars your favorite movie? Think lightsaber blue for the strip lighting. If you want to feel like you're in a spacecraft, apply silver wallpaper to the walls or paint them metallic silver.
Don't be afraid to have some fun with your decorations; the game room is the one place in your house that's focused on fun instead of function. Find round frames and trim the edges of posters featuring aliens to fit the frames. Place them around the room and you'll have portals to outer space: a room with a far out view. (If you'd rather have rectangular windows, use standard shaped frames.)

Or track down posters from the game releases of your favorites, and outline them with more LED strip lighting or silver frames.
