So, you think you’re a fanboy / girl? Well, these console-inspired room decorators have taken their love for particular gaming systems to a whole new design level. The rest of us can only hang our heads in furnishing shame. First, you have the green-and-black touting Xboxers who go all out to prove their loyalty to Microsoft…
Now, here’s another video game room tribute to what is arguably the most beloved handheld console ever made. This Gameboy-inspired bedroom was originally created by Rrcade for his Nintendo-loving son, but has since been re-designed. The decals on the walls are actually printed screenshots. I bet I could smash his high score though, just sayin’!
Gamed for twenty hours straight and forgot to shower? Not to worry! With a Playstation themed gaming bathroom like the one below, a clean bath is just a lazy step away. You sloth!
7. World of Warcraft
Goh’kosh! What is it about gamers and their bathrooms anyway? Here are a few snapshots of a designed-from-scratch Horde inspired bathroom created by a couple completely and utterly devoted to World of Warcraft. The level of decorative detail here is impressive to say the least, featuring dragon heads, chains, stone textured walls, emblems, wooden doors, the works. Now, this Horde-loving couple can literally take a piss and piss on Alliance lovers at the same time. Brilliant!
8. The Elder Scrolls / Skyrim
Three years and $50,000 later, comic book artist Tyler Kirkham has undoubtedly created the greatest real-life Elder Scrolls themed room in the world. The room comes complete with sword rack, alchemy station, armor stand, bathroom waterfall – and yes, even a secret passageway behind a bookcase. Best of all, he’s even set up a cinematic video gaming theater where he meta-immerses himself playing Elder Scrolls games in his Elder Scrolls room. Tyler is quoted as saying, “I got into Elder Scrolls a few years ago … I like these games so much”. Oh, you don’t say?! Check out a video of his room here.
I’m still a huge fan of Tetris after all these years… but my love certainly pales in comparison to these inspired room decorators. The modern look of these Tetris-esque furnishings and lights are testament to the artistic simplicity of this all-time classic puzzle game.
Gotta also love these customizable table-top lights. Perfect for any video game room homage to Tetris!
10. Super Mario
Super Mario video game rooms are perhaps the most thematically common of the lot. Designed for his daughter, Dustin Carpenter’s self-decorated creation is one of the most impressive. With brickish shelves and Super Mario murals stretching across all four walls, the room is also equipped with custom-made switches that trigger Mario theme songs and sound effects. Hopefully he spares her from the magic mushrooms, though.
Here are a few other awesome Super Mario room designs!
