A fun way to makeover a room is to implement an equally fun design. And what tops the craziest fun of them all? Casino decor, that is!
A casino themed room will not need expensive decor, and will also add a lot of space for customizing the room to your personal style. Remember there are various sub-themes to a casino themed room. You may opt for a more classic 1940’s Vegas style, the more modern Vegas decor or borrow from specific well-known casinos such as the Luxor for and Egyptian theme, the Bellagio for an Italian theme and Caesar’s Palace for a feel of ancient Greece.
Poker is an absolute must! Maximize the use of poker chips not just with your games but with the decors as well. You can glue them on frames, walls, furnishings, etc. The more colorful, the better.
Visit online auction websites and antique stores for great finds such as vintage game boards and wheels. A poker table in your casino themed room will complete the feel you are going for. You may use this as an entertainment centre or desk. For your wall art, mount a blackjack board or baccarat onto the wall using anchor hooks.
For your shelves, have a display of differently designed cards of all shapes and colors in a shadow box. Adhere these cards inside the shadow box with some hot glue and hang them up. This should make for a certain conversation piece for people gathered inside your casino themed room. Frame up some classic movie posters of casino films such as Casino Royale and you are good to go.
Paint the walls a dark color. Casinos have dim lighting for more drama. Don’t make it dingy, but just right for an impression of playing in the wee hours of the night instead of hanging with friends in the afternoon. Black is a color choice. However, if you find this too extreme, opt for violet, purple or dark blue. Don’t forget to paint the ceiling too.
A richly colored area rug like in red or maroon will be a definite standout. Have a rug cushion your poker table. If there’s a sofa set, throw in an area rug too for a more coordinated look. The vivid color of the area rugs will brighten up the dark Vegas room.
Your game room, living room or basement will never be the same. It will be an instant favorite. Just expect more visitors calling in on you…even in the dead of the night for some fun gambling. Take it easy, okay?
Don’t be ripped off by imitations. Be sure to buy an authentic rug from the Rhody Rug Inc Pilgrim Collection directly.
