It’s time to level up your home decor game! All true gamers understand the importance of having a gaming room that not only looks good but also reflects your personality. Whether you’re a fan of old-school video game consoles, fantasy novels, or comic books, these ideas will help create the perfect look for your living and gaming space. Here are six great wall art ideas that will show your love of all things gaming.
Vinyl Records – Is there anything cooler than old school vinyl records? Nope. Vinyl records are having a major moment right now, so why not bring some of that retro style into your home? Buying reissued or new vinyl isn't cheap, so look through thrift stores and online auction sites like eBay to find vintage record covers. Some cool finds feature artwork from classic games like Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda. Hang them on the wall in simple frame or get creative with a DIY easel-style frame. Or put up some classic music records, which also will help you create your perfect vibe. Either way, it’s sure to be an eye-catching conversation piece.
Vintage Video Game Cartridges – If you have any original video game cartridges lying around (or can find them at a good price), consider framing them for wall art. Place them behind glass in custom frames with colorful matting that matches the color palette of the cartridge label art—and voila! You have an instant conversation starter that any gamer would be proud to display.
Posters – Posters are one of the easiest ways to spruce up your walls with gaming flair. Visit stores like Target and Hot Topic to find posters featuring characters from popular games like Overwatch and World of Warcraft or from various anime shows and movies. Or if you’re looking for something more low-key but still nerdy, browse Etsy for vintage posters featuring artwork from classic science fiction books or movies.
Canvas Prints – Want to add a little class to your gaming room? Canvas prints are a great way to add a touch of sophistication to your gaming decor without sacrificing too much nerd cred. Look for canvas prints featuring iconic scenes from classic games like Final Fantasy VII or Metroid Prime —or better yet, get a little creative and make your own by printing out photos from iconic moments in gaming history and framing them yourself!
Wall Quotes – Words carry power, especially when they come from beloved characters in our favorite games. Put some quotes up on your walls using peel-and-stick decals—or use paint pens (if you don’t mind getting messy) to write out memorable lines directly onto the wall itself! It could be something Master Chief said in Halo or something from Red Dead Redemption - be creative and have some fun. You can also combine this idea with vinyl records by writing lyrics onto old album covers—it adds a nice personal touch while keeping things stylishly nerdy.
Pixelpad – Blacklyte’s Pixelpad is an amazing, simple to set up amazing piece of wall art. Pixelpad is an electronic pixelated piece of wall art that displays vivid graphics, gif’s, videos and can also mirror pictures and videos from your phone.
