How to create the ultimate games room shedAndy Hayes
The idea of a games room shed is something that appeals to many people. Do you have a hectic lifestyle and feel like you need a place to unwind? Or is your house simply not big enough for a large entertainment space, and you’d prefer not to go through the hassle of an extension? We’ve seen a sharp rise in customers looking to convert a standard shed into one they can call a games room – particularly over the COVID-19 pandemic. And by creating a place to relax and entertain, you’re able to add a whole new dimension to your living space.
So, if you’re eager to find out exactly how you can create the games room shed of your dreams, let’s find out!
Choose your shed
First thing’s first, choosing the shed.
Here at Solid Sheds, we offer a comprehensive range of garden sheds ready for you to pick from. Smaller pent and apex sheds aren’t usually suitable when it comes to implementing your shed games room ideas, but a summer house or garden office shed should do the trick, and be large enough to accommodate all that a great games room should include.
Make sure you check out our range of sheds today to find a size that suits your needs and get in touch if you have any questions.
Install power and WiFi
What good games room doesn’t have some kind of electrics to provide entertainment and a solid WiFi connection? As your shed is likely to be based at the bottom of your garden, you will need to ensure your WiFi reaches that far. You might still achieve a connection from your home WiFi, but it may be weak. If you want to be confident of a stable connection all the time, it’s worth considering an extender, powerline networking or an ethernet cable to do the job.
By installing power to your shed, you can include all the essentials that a games room should include. Whether this is a fridge for drinks, a TV or even arcade machines if you want to go the whole hog, a power source ensures your shed games room ideas can be implemented with ease.
Keep it secure
It’s all well and good having the shed of your dreams, but if it’s susceptible to break ins, then that dream could quickly turn into a nightmare! Equipped with expensive items inside, burglars could take a keen interest in your shed. With this in mind, you should always invest in a high quality security system for your shed – including padlocks, alarms and blinds to keep the contents hidden from view when not in use.
Security should be at the top of your thinking when you want to install any kind of shed, regardless of its intended use. If you’d like to know more about securing your shed, then read our blog post online now.
Choose your entertainment
Now here comes the fun bit. Once you’ve found the right shed and sorted your power supply and security, you can add in all the features that made you want a games room shed in the first place. We’re talking pool table, games console, sofa, TV, dart board, artwork, a fridge and anything else on your check list to create your ultimate games room, suitable for use all year round!
With a blank canvas to play with, you can include all that you desire in your new space, giving you ample entertainment for years to come.
