A rarely seen decorating technique is to use a theme with giant board games as home decor. Extravagant sports rooms are ideal for this kind of over-the-top design.
There are two ways to incorporate board games into décor: One is with unusable giant board game décor, and 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
Using your creative skills or those of a professional decorator, design a monopoly wall mural. 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
If a tennis court or swimming pool isn’t in the cards, how about an outdoor chess set? A giant chess set can be designed with stones, grass, or an actual board built into or above the ground. It’s the giant chess pieces that make this outdoor chess super fun! The look is exotic and gives a home that castle feel. For elaborate homes, a giant chess board seems like a natural fit. Check out an outstanding and professionally designed outdoor chessboard by MegaChess and Lawn Games here.
How about a giant outdoor memory game for the kids. This giant 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 have one built using wood or rod iron. Use this style of art for smaller walls. Take a 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 type of design.
If having a decorator design an elaborate full 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 of these artsy game boards on the wall. They’re a bit pricey. However, it’s a much cheaper solution to feature two or more of these than to complete a custom-designed wall.
