It’s always better when you have something authentic in your home. But it’s more original to be in your passion or childhood movie when you come home. How to make a geek decoration for the interior of a house?
Planning of realization
First of all, you should know that you can combine themes or stay on one with the geek style. For example, if you are a fan of science fiction movies and video games at the same time, the combination of the two is very feasible. Each room should have its authenticity in the accessories.
Choice of furniture
It is best to find furniture that really fits the results of your desires. For a geeky decoration, the respectable furniture is the desk and the sofa in your living room—a gamer desk and a connected sofa as a suggestion. If you can’t find suitable furniture, it is advisable to customize it. You also need to work on the locations so that they match the accessories. The furniture in the bathroom also makes you travel once. A mirror cut out of the marks of films or games.
When we talk about geeks, it is essential to bet on the accessories for the decoration to be successful: decorative lamps (patterned) and original lights for lighting.
Cushions and sets for the living room sofa and for the beds can also do the trick. Opt for cushions printed with your favorite character.
Action figures are a must in geek decorating. Choose how they do their poses. Don’t overdo it so as not to go overboard.
The paintings and posters give a chic side. Still, it’s best to place pictures only in the living room or in rooms where you might have guests. The placement of posters is more in the bedrooms.
It is also advisable to decorate your kitchen with geeky elements to dive into the style, such as mugs and custom arrangements: shelves in Pacman, undersides in logos…
You can opt for custom wallpapers or choose real paintings by adding stickers. For example, if you are a geek otaku, you have a wide choice for covering your walls: manga characters, the authentic sky in anime…
For video game enthusiasts, it is possible to use stickers of characters or to paint with the levels that have marked you.
However, you have to be very careful not to fall into the childish world.
To know to stay in the chic for the geek style
The geek must be well presented to avoid ridicule in your interior. It is very important to analyze each location of the accessories. The same is true when you stick stickers or place posters and pictures.
With figures and accessories all over your house, avoid clutter so as not to dive into children’s playrooms. It is advisable to store some of the accessories if there are too many in a room.
The budget for a geek style
To opt for a geek style, you need to plan a little larger budget to meet your desires. The cost of decorating can very well be reduced. Visit thrift stores where you can get the iconic characters of each generation. You can also make some of the decorative accessories yourself. The same goes for the wall covering, and you can invent some to stay in your theme.
As a big anime and cartoon fan myself, I can tell you that decorating your apartment or home with geek memorabilia is fairly straightforward. I have a whole bookshelf filled with manga and comic books, and this is an excellent addition for any anime fan out there. Geek decor can be as straightforward or as complicated as you make them to be.
