Recreation rooms serve as a gathering place for entertaining and merrymaking. Whether you love sports, music or creativity, your rec room gives you the chance to kick back and take pleasure in your pastimes.
Having a recreational space at home is a simple luxury that anyone can and should have. Whether it is large or small, masculine or feminine, modern or retro; the recreation room is a place where you can enjoy the perfect spot of ‘me’ time!
It’s important to have a dedicated space. You need somewhere that is purely for entertainment, that is calm and inspiring, and is generous with large space - necessary for various entertainment options.
Make a list of equipment and furniture you need to accommodate for when planning out your space and be sure to incorporate some of your favourite things such as artwork, photos or personal achievement paraphernalia to keep you motivated when your slowing down.
The rec room is just as important as our living spaces, so it’s only suitable that we decorate them with as much love and enthusiasm.
Gone are the days when rumpus rooms meant tacky and kitsch. You can quite effortlessly create a space that has visual impact by staying close to the mantra of beauty, function and comfort.
Start with a simple furniture layout and choose a style that reflects a sense of who you are. If your room is bland and enclosed, work out how to incorporate a feature point such as a rug or artwork. Appreciating how much impact can be achieved by decorating and styling the rec room is an important part of interior design and will essentially contribute to the wellbeing of everyone living in the home.
Soft and stylish
Comfort factor is important. Chairs are the prime gathering spot for nesting and recuperation, and ideally should be tailored to your specific needs.
You have to consider size, style and substance to find a chair you’ll be happy to rest yourself upon. Squashy sofas with generously filled cushions in different shapes and sizes will provide the ease and coziness that is crucial for a rec room.
Comfort should take priority when it comes to key seating pieces. When you find a chair that ticks all the boxes, go for it! A comfortable chair will yield dividends to your pleasure and resting time.
Once you’ve planned your space and furnished it with the things you love, you can start to incorporate the important finishing touches. It is the details in a space that lift the room from humdrum to astounding.
Think about placing mementos, awards or trophies in frames for a crisp visual impact on the walls. Alternatively, you can reinvent old trophies into vases and place brightly coloured flowers to create impact with colour.
Experiment with your knick-knacks and treasures. Create interesting collections for display purposes – a powerful decorating tool of self‐expression that will add wonderful warmth and charm to any rec room.
