    Gaming Room

    Every console or PC game enthusiast wants an ideal gaming area setup that brings their gaming experience to the next level. Whether you have your own gaming sanctuary or not, these room lighting ideas will allow you to customise your gaming setup for the best output!

    Play with colours

    Programmable colour-changing LED lights are perfect for creating the best atmosphere needed to enjoy a highly engaging and immersive gaming experience. With many options available, you can choose the type of LED lights that match the size and style of your gaming area perfectly.

    Lightstrip ideas for gaming roomInstall a self-adhesive smart LED lightstrips at the back of your screen, system and the dark edges of the furniture in your gaming room and program them to match the action on screen. They also create an incredible backlight even when you take a break from your gaming spree!

    TIP: Use the Hue Sync app to level up your gaming by synchronising the content on your screen to your lights and add dimension to your gaming experience.

    Hue Play - gaming room lighting

    Smart LED light bars can make gaming incredibly enjoyable and memorable for any PC gaming enthusiast — single or multiplayer. Place Hue Play bars on the floor or next to your monitor to wash your walls with colour-changing lights and synchronise them to what's happening on your screen with Hue Sync.

    Match your fixtures with your room's theme

    If your video gaming room is futuristic — a chrome or nickel lamp would be well-suited. You can take the theme to greater levels than in other rooms since this is such a special space. If you think it will look over the top in another room, it would probably look just right at home in your gaming room.

    TIP: Do add general lighting fixtures like ceiling lights or recessed spotlights in certain parts of your room and use dimmer switches to change the brightness, warmth and everything in between as you need it —  especially useful for creating ambiance if your gaming room is more old-fashioned than high tech just yet.

    Want extra help when playing a game?

    Want to immerse yourself even more in the foreign in-game worlds you're exploring? Make sure to add gaming accessories like a keyboard, headset, mouse and others that are equipped with LED lights to bring the experience up a notch.

    TIP: Link your Philips Hue lights to Razer Chroma equipment to mimic the game effects for a full-room experience. Whether it's your ammunitions getting low or the ambient colours linked to the environment you're exploring, Philips Hue copies the effects of your Razer hardware and lets you enjoy next level gaming.

    Task lights for when you hit the pause button

    Every room needs some task lighting gaming rooms are no exception. Be sure to put some table lamps in your space for the times when you need to do some reading, cross some tasks off the list or just want to take a small break from beating your own record in that favourite game of yours! 

    TIP: It's also important to take frequent breaks from screens to give your eyes the chance to rest. If you're in the middle of a video game marathon and can't step away, try focusing on a point beyond your screen for as long as you can to give your eyes mini breaks.
