Seb and Cole's gaming room

Debbie Straughton


We decided to make the room above our garage a special space for our two boys (age 6 and 8) to play. They wanted a gaming/playroom.

They both love Mario, so we used Ikea Kallax units and a bit of DIY to make Mario style storage boxes. We painted the walls in chalkboard paint and they have a giant box of chalks so they can draw on the walls.

We have a popcorn machine and a drinks fridge for movie night parties with their friends. And a karaoke machine and disco lights for parties.

It gives them a space for themselves and makes a great place for parties with their friends.

    It’s inspiring and every little boy would love something like this. It’s also age appropriate. Two very lucky boys

    Superb space for kids, love the ability to chalk on the walls. The popcorn machine and drinks fridge is kids heaven.

    A lovely safe space with lots of activities to keep the boys entertained and stimulated
