In a modern home, having a room dedicated to entertainment has almost become a distant dream. So interior designers and decorators have come up with smart ideas and have designated the living room with the responsibility of being the entertainment room of the house. Believe us; Space constraints or budget limitations don’t restrict the imagination or creativity needed to make the entertainment zone a relaxing and fun place where the family and friends can gather for some quality time together. Thankfully, technology has shrunk multiple entertainment options into one screen. The television, which can be used to watch Netflix or the family’s favourite programs, can also be used for gaming or watching sports together. Today, we bring you 10 beautiful and functional entertainment room design ideas, and the best part is that it is easy to execute within a limited budget. Have a look!  

1. Design the entertainment room to keep it clean and organised

An untidy and cluttered entertainment room will take away the basic purpose of its existence, which is to relax and rejuvenate the family. Remember the philosophy of modern design ‘less is more’, and design the room around it. Designing of the wall TV unit should be done keeping in mind that it needs to house every entertainment gadget you have and also any future addition you might make. This will save on the cost of any expansion in the future. Keep the décor minimum. It will look classy and have a calming effect on the mind and body.   

2. Optimize the space of the entertainment room

Let everything in the room be there for a purpose. Usually, the limitation in space compels one to use the living room as the entertainment room of the house. So, design it to make it look beautiful since it is here that you will entertain your guests and hang out with your family. Push the furniture towards the wall and keep the middle area clear for the traffic or for sitting on the carpet to relax. A wide TV unit with open and closed shelves should have enough storage space. Use the partition as the display unit or as the bookshelf for the family of book lovers.

3. Entertainment room in a united space

If you want to have a separate entertainment room within the family room, all you have to do is to show your creativity and divide the space even if it is just symbolic. Take a cue from here and arrange the furniture in a relaxed setting on one side for chatting and gossiping and a couple of chairs in front of the TV if someone wants to watch TV or play games. Select light and breezy furniture and keep the décor minimal.  

4. Emphasis on roominess

For Indians, entertainment means having a nice time with family and friends. Keep the area free of too much furniture so that there is enough space on the floor for board games and for the kids to run around while the adults are busy watching sports.  Select wooden flooring for warmth, comfort and easy maintenance. Even for the TV unit and bookshelf, opt for a simple style that is inexpensive and elegant.    

5. Assign a budget and decorate the entertainment room accordingly

Consider your budget while decorating the entertainment room of your home. It needn’t be elaborate to feel nice. Comfortable seating, an organised TV and entertainment unit and soothing fixtures for lighting up the textured wall will present a room within the budget and make it look elegant and beautiful.  

6. Invest in comfortable furniture

Comfortable seating will double up the joy of fun and frolic with family and friends. Invest in a good-quality sofa set where you can sit for long and even have a movie marathon without feeling tired or uncomfortable and enjoy the extended hours of entertainment spent in the company of loved ones.   

7. Mix and match elements

Unleash your imagination and mix to match different styles to create a functional and stylish entertainment room for your home. Create the display and entertainment unit on the same wall and decorate the wall by using different shades of wood on it. The drawers will keep the space organised. If there are two different coloured sofas in your home, use them to create interesting décor at no extra cost.  

8. Decorate the wall of the entertainment room

Open brick walls painted in grey keep with the colour scheme of the room and a simple drawer unit is fixed on the wall to decorate it. The look of this entertainment room is contemporary and chic. Comfortable seating on the smooth floor and a simple cabinet below the TV become the entertainment zone for the family and friends.   

9. Clean and clear décor

A clean and clear entertainment unit with wires properly hidden behind the wall unit creates a smooth design without distractions. Arrange the sofa set in such a way that there is space in the middle where the family can comfortably sit on the floor. Keep the décor as simple as possible. Of course, a swing is something everyone will enjoy, children or old people.   

10. Informal entertainment room

Low seating comes at a reasonable price and brings a youthful vibe into the room. Select a modern colour for the wall and match the furniture with it. Keep the décor minimal and let your style speak for itself. Your entertainment room will surely become the favourite hang out space of your family and friends.
