With the advancement of flooring materials, creative options for cool floors in game rooms are limited only by the imagination. Carpet, linoleum and laminated floor products can be manipulated to take on any appearance. Inlays, where one color of flooring is cut to shape and fit within a larger section of the same material of a different color, create impressive floor images suitable for game rooms. Digital printing used to create large floor clings from graphic art or photography are durable and removable for the next decorating inspiration. Additionally, floor clings are easy to clean and protect wooden floors from excessive wear.
Ultra Plush Carpet
The game room is the one room in the house where everybody gets a chance to relax. Ultra plush carpet adds luxury where kids and adults can sit and stretch out in comfort. Without the need for an exercise mat, getting down to do the tummy crunches won't be a such a hassle.
Lighted Floor Panels
For a really cool game room floor, inset LED or fiber optic panels used in dance floors. Choose a static color to complement your decor, or have the panels change colors when you are hosting a party. Use a few panels for soft, low lighting or do an entire section of the floor.
Get up out of the chair to play chess or checkers. Carpet or linoleum square tiles in black and white or red and black are easy to install yourself. For existing solid wood floors, the checkerboard effect is achieved by adding squares of complementing wood stains or use a floor cling. Purchase or make your own giant chess and checker pieces.
Another really cool floor option that everyone will love, is a Monopoly board in the center of the game room floor. The easiest, cheapest and most colorful means to achieve this look is with a floor cling. Elegant and more permanent options include carpet and wood floor inlays.
Your friends will look twice before stepping over the threshold onto your game room floor when they have bird's eye view of the Grand Canyon or other deep gorge. Digitally reproduce photography from your vacation or other source as a room size floor cling.
Walk on Water
View swimmers in a pool or trout in a stream as you walk across the floor cling on your game room floor.
Yellow Brick Road
Follow the yellow brick road from the entrance to the center of your game room. This magical effect can be achieved with carpet, linoleum or floor clings. Inset the yellow carpet into existing or new carpet, shave between the bricks to define the shape and bevel of each carpet brick.
