Bringing the entertainment to your home can be quite a challenge, and you can meet the challenge with style.

Game night is always packed with fun, and here are some tips to pack it with style. Let’s look at the best game room decorating ideas that will make you the most fun couple in the neighborhood!

Rustic Game Rooms Will Blow Your Friends’ and Neighbors’ Minds!

2020 should have been the year when people bring nature to their home. So, why not bring it to the game room as well?!

Rustic style is synonymous with classical lines, wood, and harmony. It also reminds us to use these natural materials and bring us closer to nature, and give us a feeling of inner peace.

When you think about rustic decoration, the first association is a county house, with large windows, trees all around you, and maybe a big pool table. Pool or Billiards tables put the finishing touch on any classic game room. Heavy wooden billiards tables will put you and your partner in the spotlight.

To choose a perfect pool table, think about its material, color, size, and pocket options. These are the most important thing you have to think about before you decide to spice your game room with this masterpiece.

The perfect gaming media room includes lots of flat screens, maybe even some hidden somewhere in the wall, and with a few lazy bean bag or gaming chairs in front of them. The light has to be perfect too, and it would be ideal to have a powerful sound system for better special effects. Bass vibrations anyone?

A popcorn machine could also be an interesting choice if you get hungry, and a small fridge next to your lazy bag is a great way to refresh yourself. Or maybe a vending machine if you want your friends to help pay for it all!

When I was 14 years old, I surreptitiously made my way through the stacks in the local library until I came to the Psychology section. One after one, I took down the books whose titles I thought would provide an answer, went to the table of contents and, if there were any, I flipped to the pictures.

Many of us have made resolutions and pledged ourselves to transforming some aspect, or aspects, of our lives. For some, these resolutions will involve career, budget, home ownership, etc., but for a LOT of us, they will involve various health, exercise and fitness goals.

Getting specific can help in holding yourself accountable for these commitments, though. So we thought it might be interesting to talk with a local gay trainer, James Mai, about his fitness journey, his work as a trainer and how he keeps himself motivated, and get some of his suggestions for carrying through on this year’s fitness resolutions!
