It’s a great time for geeks to be alive, now that geek culture has finally cemented its place in the mainstream. But just because geek culture is popular now doesn’t necessarily mean your house is living up to its full potential. With that in mind, here are some neat ideas for turning your home into a true geek sanctuary.
Wood Carved Dungeons and Dragons Table
Do you play dungeons and dragons or other tabletop games? If so, then you might want to consider customizing your own wooden party table. These items are only growing in popularity, as it allows people to impart their own personality into the furniture, and helps to serve as an excellent “anchor” for the storytelling. If you’re trying to imagine yourself as a brave knight in medieval times, then it’s certainly easier to accomplish with a giant wooden table in front of you and a nice mug of ale. Of course, not everyone has the time or money to make their own wood carved table, which is why there are plenty of other alternatives. For instance, you could take a normal billiards table and, with some metal clipboard clips and other assorted materials, convert it into a futuristic sci-fi table. In fact, metal corner suppliers like Curlson Sericur regularly help companies and individuals to make unique pieces with their metal products.
Customized pillows are a great way of infusing your home with a geeky flavor without spending too much money or forcing people to constantly be reminded of it. Best of all, pillows are such a popular commodity that you won’t have any trouble at all finding one with your favorite TV show, book, or video game reference on it. If a show has a catchphrase, then there’s absolutely a pillow somewhere with that phrase on it. Geek chic sites are a great place to look for ideas and can give you everything you need to start building your home the way you want it to be built.
If you’ve always dreamt of having your own nerdy empire, then investing in your home is a great place to start. Aside from making your place more personalized, it also sends a message to guests that you’re comfortable in your own skin and aren’t ashamed of your interests. And there’s nothing cooler than someone who is confident in both who they are and what they like.
