Yes, You Totally Should Build That Game Room. Here’s How to Start
Monday, May 23, 2022

Did you know that 83% of workers in the US report some type of work-related stress? If this sounds like you, wouldn't it be nice to have space in your home to kick back and relax?

Having a game room is a great way to unwind after work. It has many benefits, including boosting family and social time, allowing you to relax, and building your home's value.

And if building a game room sounds like a hassle, you don't have to do it alone. Our experienced carpenters in PA can help you out. Here's how.

Game Room Planning

Before we even get into the game room design aspect, you're going to want to decide what type of game room you want. There are various types of game room ideas you could go for. Perhaps you'll want to add features such as a bar, carpeting, some TVs, etc.

But perhaps the most important question is where the game room will be. Like most people, you'll probably opt to make your basement the game room location. This is an excellent space for privacy and noise elimination.

Much goes into game room design and construction in your basement if you take that route. And that's why we at Cope Construction and Renovation are here to help.

Basement Game Room Renovation

If you're planning to turn your basement into a game room, you will have to work around the issues of upstairs footsteps and dropped temperatures in basements. The best solution to these issues is insulation.

Basements are often colder because heat rises. Insulation lets you keep your guests warm and comfortable without paying a fortune for heating. Insulation also helps with drowning out upstairs noise and preventing ground moisture problems.

Another factor to consider when renovating your basement includes how you want the flooring done. You may want carpet flooring for a warmer feel or a tile flooring that's easier to clean. Or you could get the best of both worlds with engineered hard flooring.

You also need to think about the ceiling. For any home renovations, you need to be up to city code for plumbing and wiring, and you need to make sure your ceiling can conceal all those pipes and wires effectively. Drop ceilings are an excellent option in this matter.

These are just a few of the many reasons it isn't wise (or legal) to DIY this project. Many important details go into an effective home renovation, and one mistake could lead to legal issues or a decrease in the value of your home.
