Task lights

Task lightingEvery room needs some task lighting—gaming rooms are no exception. Be sure to put in some table lamps in your space for the times when you need to do some offline reading or tasks. This is another area where you can infuse style. 

Tip: Do add general lighting fixtures like ceiling light or recessed spotlights in certain parts of your room use dimmer switches to change the brightness, warmth and everything in between as you need it. Dimmer switches are also good for creating ambiance if your gaming room is more old-fashioned than high tech.

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 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.

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 as specialty space. If you think it would look over the top in another room, it will probably look right at home in your gaming room.

Accessorize your gaming area

Make sure to add gaming accessories like a keyboard, headset, mouse and others that are equipped with LED lights. Try to strike a balance between your warm and cool elements and you’ll create a cozy gaming room in no time.
