With all the time we spend indoors now, a lot of people have discovered (or rediscovered) their love for gaming. Whether your cup of tea is a first-person zombie apocalypse game or a casual farming simulator, I think we all agree that it’s a good way to wind down and de-stress after a hard day’s work. Are you thinking of setting up or decking out your current gaming space? We’ve got 3 cool game room color palettes for you down below.

The Cyberpunk

The cyberpunk aesthetic dominates google searches for gaming set ups. It’s all about creating a dark, cozy atmosphere for the perfect gaming environment. A moody shade of paint like a dark gray serves as an ideal backdrop to really bring out and highlight the colors and graphics of the games that you’re playing. Brighten things up with accents of customizable RGB lighting that comes with hardware such as CPU fans, keyboards, and mice. Not enough for you? Why not invest in LED strip lighting as well?

The cyberpunk game room color palette consists of dark grays, bright blues, hot pinks, and royal purples.

Sakura Pink Aesthetic

Love all things pink and kawaii? This just might be the perfect set up for you. For this look’s palette, we’re keeping things simple with a white and pink color combo. Instead of using hot pinks like in the Cyberpunk look, opt for softer, baby pinks instead. Go ahead, get everything in pink! We’re talking about pink gaming chairs (for the proper lumbar support), pink keyboards, and pink cat-ear headsets. Tone down the sakura pink explosion with a neutral backdrop like whites and off whites.

Casual Gaming

Do you consider yourself a non-gamer gamer or a casual gamer? If, like me, your ideal gaming night consists of farming or life simulators like Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, or Stardew Valley, a simple and relaxing gaming set up should do the trick. No need for fancy game lights. Instead, opt for cute, little desk plants to warm up the space. Cozy up with a hot cup of tea and de-stress the night away farming for turnips and running errands for adorable, talking animals.

Some Final Thoughts

Aside from coming up with the perfect game room color palette and decor, always make sure to get the basics first for a fun and seamless binge. Get yourself a pair of blue light blocking glasses to avoid excessive eye strain. Invest in a comfortable, ergonomic chair to prevent back and joint pains. Finally, don’t forget to take periodic breaks from time to time and get up to do some stretches. Hydrate yourself! Go to the bathroom! Hug your dog! Get your body moving.

We hope these setups and game room color palettes have inspired you to spruce up your own space. Do you have any more questions regarding the perfect paint and color for gaming rooms? Send us an email at ask@myboysen.com. We’re always happy to help. Happy gaming!
