Gaming Wall Panels

Ordinary walls don't belong in a gaming room, the technical properties, aesthetic and vibe demands more!

Wall panels are the go-to solution for achieving the technical requirements and elite aesthetic of gaming rooms without significant renovations.

Keep reading to learn which type of panelling you need along with inspiration & ideas.

Choosing Gaming Room Wall Panels

Consider the following when choosing wall panels for your gaming room.

Acoustic Properties: Assess if your space needs improved sound quality. Opt for panels with acoustic features; our slat wall panels are tailored for this purpose.

Material: The material of the panel impacts durability and aesthetics. Wood panels provide a natural, authentic look but may be susceptible to moisture. On the other hand, PVC panels are waterproof but lack the same authentic finish.

Aesthetic Appeal: Determine if you want to create a themed gaming room. Choose a style that complements your setup. Don't choose a design that's overly distracting, gaming rooms are about focus and zoning in.

Integrated Features: Some panels come with built-in LED lighting and cable management systems.

Compatibility: Ensure that the panels integrate well with your gaming setup without obstructing access to peripherals and sockets.

Creating Backdrops For Streaming

Extend the following design principles of your space to your backdrop.

Consistent Theme: Maintain coherence with your chosen theme, whether its a contemporary urban vibe or rustic and rugged, ensure that your streaming backdrop aligns with this aesthetic for a seamless transition between your physical and virtual spaces.

Visual Synergy: Select backdrop elements that visually complement the texture, colour, and design of your wall panels. Harmonising these aspects will create a unified visual experience that enhances the overall ambiance of your streaming environment. Wall decor is a big part of panelling, and you can hang items onto or accessorise your wall panels.

Brand Representation: Utilise the backdrop as an opportunity to reinforce your personal brand or channel identity. Incorporate logos, colours, or graphics that reflect your brand message, thereby establishing a recognisable and memorable visual identity for your stream. Wall panelling is ideal for this as you don't have to drill or work into your wall, and only onto the panelling.

Functional Integration: Ensure that the backdrop not only enhances aesthetics but also serves practical streaming requirements. Consider factors such as lighting placement, camera angles, and space for additional equipment to optimise the functionality of your streaming setup. Bright glossy wall panelling can reflect light back to the camera, whereas matte finish panelling will absorb light.
