Guide To Setting Up Your Gaming Room

Author: Jamie Quinn
If you’re a gamer, you have most likely dreamed of having a decked-out gaming room. A room dedicated to your tech and collectables, a comfy chair with speakers in the headrest, and a do not disturb sign on the door.


Before diving into creating your dream set up, let’s talk about the essential elements of a gaming room.

Choosing a Comfortable Gaming Chair

Your chair can make or break your gaming experience. Let’s be honest; nobody games in half-hour slots. When we sit down for a session, we’re there for a good few hours. Invest in a high-quality chair with lumbar support and adjustable features. Position your equipment at the correct height to prevent straining your wrists and neck. A well thought out ergonomic setup enhances your performance and allows you to game comfortably for longer. 

Comfortable Gaming Chair

When you picture your set up, envision what it will look like. Is your equipment spread out or fairly compact? Do you have dual monitors that need extra space? Whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist gamer will determine the desk you buy. Thankfully, the options for great gaming desks are endless, some coming already equipped with cup holders, headphone storage and even LED lighting. 

Understanding Your Gaming Display Needs

Understanding Your Gaming Display Needs

When it comes to your display, there are a few things to consider. Bigger is not always better when it comes to monitors. Anything larger than a 27-inch monitor means you will need to move your head to take in all visuals. If you’re wanting a bigger screen, it’s recommended you go for a curved monitor for a more consistent view and an immersive gaming experience. A high-resolution gaming monitor is a non-negotiable requirement for any PC set up. Look for one with a high refresh rate to minimise motion blur.

Gaming Headphones To Get You In The Zone

To get you in the zone, a pair of high-quality noise cancelling gaming headphones are a must. Consider a wireless pair with a built-in mic that offer great sound without the hassle of being tied down by cables. A good pair of headphones provides an immersive experience that allows you to communicate with online teammates and hear subtle sounds that can help improve your gameplay. 

Adding Personal Touches To Your Gaming Room

Fun lighting isn’t essential, but it can elevate your gaming room to the next level. Some popular choices are light bars, strip lights, light panels and neon signs. 

Don’t forget to show off your personality by decorating with all your favourite things. Do you have a fandom that you’re obsessed with? Maybe you have an expensive collection of figurines that you want to display or plenty of posters to hang on the walls. Whatever it is, personalise your space to add character and create a gaming environment that is uniquely yours. 

Adding Personal Touches To Your Gaming Room

Think about your absolute must haves. Most of us don’t have an endless budget, and high-quality tech can add up quickly, so make a list of your priorities and stick to them. Whether it’s an adjustable desk, dual monitors, or even strip lights wrapping around the room, what can you not function without when you game?
