A rarely seen decorating technique is to use a theme with giant board games as home decor. Luxurious sports rooms are ideal for this kind of over-the-top design.
There are two ways to incorporate board games into décor: One with unusable giant board game décor. The other is with giant usable games that double as incredible décorating pieces or additions.
Below are several ways professional decorators/architects have combined a board game theme into an indoor or outdoor space. Jaws will drop with these giant board games as home décor. Check them out below:
1. Giant Monopoly Board Game Wall Murals
Design a monopoly wall mural using your creative skills or those of a professional decorator. Take it floor to ceiling and wall to wall, or focus on one or two walls. You can create monopoly properties in sections and name them as per the actual monopoly board. Take a look at this professional monopoly-themed wall by Mural Art here.
2. A Giant Outdoor Chess Set
How about an outdoor chess set if a tennis court or swimming pool isn’t in the cards? A giant chess set can be designed with stones, grass, or a board built into or above the ground. It’s the massive chess pieces that make this outdoor chess super fun! The look is exotic and gives a home a castle feel. For elaborate homes, a giant chessboard seems like a natural fit. Here is a grand and professionally designed outdoor chessboard by MegaChess and Lawn Games.
How about a giant outdoor memory game for the kids? This big game is great fun for parties or family gatherings.
3. Giant Tic-Tac-Toe on the Wall
Create your own stencil to paint a tic-tac-toe mural on the wall, or build one using wood or rod iron. Use this style of art for smaller walls. Look at this modern space by Collaborate Design Works, featuring a bold tic-tac-toe custom-designed wall piece. It’s custom-made to suit the contemporary feel of the room.
4. How About a Giant Scrabble Wall?
This scrabble wallboard by Masterpiece Design Group takes creativity to another level. In the designer’s comment section, they explain how, in steps, they created this look. The scrabble tiles are made to remain on the wall permanently. However, they can be constructed to be removable. If building a scrabble wall using a structure is too much, the handy DIY types can opt for a stencil and paint to create this design.
If having a decorator design an elaborate whole wall of scrabble squares isn’t possible; there’s always this deluxe scrabble board wall edition. Give your room a designer look by featuring several artsy game boards on the wall. They were a bit pricey. However, it’s a much cheaper solution to feature two or more of these than to complete a custom-designed wall.

How clever. Love the Scrabble wall idea (my favorite game). All of these game decor ideas are great themes for a sports room or playroom.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m with you on the Scrabble Wall, would love that too
These giant board game suggestions remind me of hop-scotch on the sidewalk! Since I enjoy board games, I love the idea. I can easily imagine them in the popular game rooms in so many homes these days.
Thanks for stopping by Cynthia, sure would be fun to have that scrabble wall!
