However, this doesn’t means that converting one of your rooms as a gaming room is a bad idea. It is your personal choice and you can of course go for it. The next important to consider is the size of the gaming room. If you have free space in the house you can go for a large gaming room, otherwise you can just dedicate a section of the room to convert it into the gaming room. In either of the cases the plan of the gaming room is important. You can always change your plan. However, that is not a great idea.
