Color scheme

Choosing a color scheme for any room in your home can be quite daunting, but when it comes to your basement sports-theme decor, this might come a little easier if you have some favorite teams. All teams have a specific color they’re associated with, so use these colors in your decor theme. Incorporate multiple teams’ colors throughout the room, using the walls, furniture, decor items, like pillows, area rugs, bar stool covers and more.

Add a home bar

What sporting event would be complete without beverages? Home bars are fun for gatherings in your home, especially when hosting a game party. You can add any size bar you want, or your basement space allows, just have fun with it and make it a focal point of the room. A polished wood bar, marble, or tile can all be a nice touch to a bar top where your friends sit and order a drink from you, the host. They are also easy to clean and maintain, and easy to work with when it comes to adding other elements to the bar, and the rest of the room. Make your bar part of the sports theme by hanging memorabilia pieces around the area, from jerseys, to photos of players or teams.

Keep the theme flowing throughout the room

Sports team memorabilia will be one of the main decor elements you may want to work with when it comes to setting up your room. From large pictures of your favorite team’s players, or just their name and logo framed and hung on a wall, showcasing your favorite team(s) can be done in a wide variety of ways. Framed jerseys, an autographed ball or bat displayed in a cool way on a fireplace mantel or shelving unit, bobbleheads of your teams’ players are fun to look at, and framed caricature of your favorite team’s head coach are all ideas for creating fun, interesting takes on your sports team.

Big screen TV, large drop-down screen, it’s your call

No matter what you choose, being able to watch your sporting events without straining to see, especially when hosting a crowd of your best buddies, is pertinent to everyone having a good time. Depending on the layout of your basement, your budget, and your preference, you will want to choose the right technology for being to catch all the games. You may prefer to have one large screen TV that hangs on the wall so everyone in the room can catch all the plays, or if you plan to host big groups of friends on game night, a large, wall-sized move theater screen might be the perfect touch to bring every play to life. If you love to keep up with multiple games at one time, multiple TV’s on a wall can open up your options for keeping up with all the games going on at one time. How cool is that?

Put some light on your game

Basements aren’t known for supplying a lot of natural light, so adding light to the room is important, but making sure you get the right amounts in the right places can really make your sports themed room feel like the perfect atmosphere to hang out and watch your games. Overhead lights can be overbearing and cast shadows on TV’s and wall art, so try adding recessed lighting in the main area of the room that can be controlled with a switch as to which lights function at any given time. Wall sconces are great for darker areas of the room, a hall or doorway and other areas. Perhaps you can even find a set in your team’s colors to add to the theme. For a sports basement that boasts a full-sized pool table, hang a bar chandelier over the table to create a bar atmosphere and create the perfect sporting feel in the room.

Add games for fun and entertainment

Besides sitting around and watching a game or two, think about other forms of entertainment for your guests. A free-throwing basketball hoop on a back wall, a small putter green, a Foosball table, or a pool table are all ideas for creating a fun atmosphere in your sports-themed basement. You’ll keep the guys entertained while in-between games, during halftime, or during those moments where your team might not be heading for that win and you need to let off a little steam.

Creating thee perfect sports-themed basement will probably be one of the most enjoyable decor adventures you embark on. Anything goes, but think fun, lively, entertaining and functional.
