Whether you're a die-hard Apex Legends fan or prefer to spend your time battling foes in Mortal Kombat 1, the chances are that you dream of having your own space at home dedicated solely to your gaming. While there's not technically anything wrong with playing your favorite PC games at an ordinary desk while sitting on a somewhat uncomfortable 10-year-old office chair, having your own gaming room will undoubtedly be a dream-come-true. Whether you play games just to pass the time or consider yourself a serious gamer, you will undoubtedly be able to benefit from a few basic tips that will help you set up the gaming room of your dreams.    

Find a suitable space and draw up a budget

You can set up your gaming room in any unused, suitable space you can find. A spare bedroom, garden shed, or even a garage that is not in use can all be transformed into a magnificent gaming den. Once you have found a suitable space to convert into a gaming room, you need to sit down and draw up a budget. Note down everything you will need for your room, ranging from wall paint and ambient lighting to new gaming equipment and a comfortable chair. It's easy to get carried away when setting up your gaming room, so be sure to stick to your budget as best you can. A credit card may come in handy when it comes to setting up your games room, especially as far as making some of the larger purchases is concerned. Depending on what financial institution you open an account with, you may even end up receiving a welcome gift, while also qualifying for special bonuses.

Buy the right chair

Contrary to popular belief, your gaming PC is not the most important component of your gaming room. There is, in fact, something that is often overlooked yet can make or break your entire gaming experience. If you spend extended periods of time playing games while sitting in an uncomfortable chair, it's quite likely that you will end up with severe back pain, which can lead to long-term complications. While a typist’s chair may suffice for infrequent gaming, it is hardly ideal. Instead, opt for a dedicated gaming chair, such as the Secretlab Titan or the Autonomous ErgoChair 2, which will take your gaming experience to the next level.

Invest in some good tech

Once you have found the perfect chair, you can consider investing in some cool tech that will give your gaming a welcome boost. If you need a new PC, make sure to pick one that has a Core i5 processor capable of handling all the high-end games on the market. Apart from a good processor, a gaming PC will also need to have a dedicated gaming graphics card that delivers a smooth frame rate and minimal lag. If you're planning to spend a decent amount of time gaming, you might also want to invest in a decent gaming monitor that offers improved response times, great color accuracy, and optimal refresh rates. Throw in a wireless gaming keyboard and mouse, and a pair of gaming earphones, and you will soon be gaming like a pro. 

Having a gaming room to relax in is, without a doubt, something any avid gamer dreams of. Thankfully, setting one up by yourself is a lot easier than you might have imagined if you follow the basic guidelines explained above.
