These clever tips will help you create your perfect study or games room

Study & Games Room Ideas

Finding space for a study or games room can be tough. Luckily, Life & Style have some top tips for helping you transform your home for work and play no matter your spacing restrictions. From choosing the best lighting to making sure you’ve got the right furniture, it’s easy to create a special space for studying or board games with our guide.

Maximise space

When space is scarce, adding in extra furniture can make it look cluttered. Instead of opting for a large coffee table or desk in your study room, why not maximise space with a console table? Slimmer than traditional desks, they have the perfect amount of room for study essentials such as laptops, table lamps and notepads.

Or, for an alternative to a TV stand, use a console table to display entertainment and gaming devices. Thanks to their minimalist design, you’ll also have plenty of room underneath to store DVDs and board games that the whole family can enjoy on a rainy weekend.

Use your console table to store classic games

To create a focal point for guests to admire, why not try highlighting your table with a stand out vase and candles? The ideal way to add warmth and a homely touch.

Light the way

One thing that will be sure to transform your study space or games room is lighting. From striking floor lamps to stylish table lamps, being creative with your lighting can really refresh rooms to make them work for any purpose.

Looking at computer screens and reading can take its toll on your eyes, so it’s best to protect them with brightening table lamps. Our geometric table lamp is just the thing for style-conscious studiers, with the dimmable controls making it easy to adjust your lighting depending on your task. The trendy metallic finish is the perfect way to complete your study room design and will work as an attractive accent on side tables.
