When it comes to interior design, everyone can try their hand at transforming their space — even if that space is filled with sci-fi memorabilia or gaming accessories. Adding geek-chic decor to any space is easy if you know what to look for. After all, just because you’re into anime or wizards doesn’t mean you can’t have a grown-up space and have fun at the same time.
To help you find your inspiration, we’ve put together our picks for easy ways to add your favorite geek-chic decor to any room in your home.
Frame Your Gaming Posters
If you’re a gaming enthusiast, chances are you have your fair share of posters — either rolled up and stored in your closet, displayed with tape or adhesives on your wall, or stored safely in a collector’s drawer. If you’re looking to add your geeky style to your favorite room, you can incorporate your posters and still maintain an adult space.
The key is to frame those posters. This is a simple way to ensure your room still has your personality, and there are several inexpensive DIY options at your disposal. If you’re able to secure spare pieces of wood, you could experiment with a wooden frame. If your geek-chic style is more on the minimalist side, try a plexiglass finish.
Display Your Unique Wardrobe
If your closet is always kept neat, there’s no reason you can’t showcase your favorite cosplay outfit or piece of Azzyland apparel. Open closets are a great way to open up the entire space and add more color and personality at the same time. You can choose your own combination of racks, shelves, and drawers, depending on your closet needs.
Add an Accent Wall
Accent walls are a great way to add your personality and passions to any space without taking over the entire room. Decorating every wall in any room can feel overwhelming, and an accent wall is a perfect compromise. The best part is that there are more options than ever for gaming, movie, and tech-fanatics.

Use Fun Accessories in Your Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the best places to add your nerdy personality because of the variety of unique gadgets and accessories. From ice cube moulds shaped like the Death Star to Pokemon teapots — the possibilities are nearly endless. You can even find your favorite sci-fi movie or gaming character in accessories like salt and pepper shakers. Kitchen decor is one of the easiest rooms to show off your passions.
If you’re an avid reader, floating bookshelves are the perfect way to display your growing collection without cluttering your dresser or nightstands. Whether it’s the entire Harry Potter series or a vast array of comic books, floating shelves can give you the decor and personality you’re looking for without taking up precious space on your desk or floor.
