When you buy or even rent a new house, you’re sometimes faced with the conundrum that is the interior decoration and setup. Each room demands its own sets of furniture, their own looks, their dedicated ‘feng shui’. The issue with this is that each room is to also be decorated according to the tastes of the person or people intended to live or use that space, and this fact becomes more true when you need to have a room dedicated to recreational activities or even just to relax and unwind.
These are top 4 options we suggest to make your personalized ‘rec room’.
GIVE YOUR ROOM A FRESH COAT PAINT
This one is self-explanatory. A simple repaint on even one of the walls can freshen up the atmosphere of your room. A splash of color sprayed around the boundaries, a touch of contrast on the widest wall, a stroke of stencil to display your artistic emotions; the choice is yours!
While there is nothing wrong with using a simple white coat, it wouldn’t hurt to throw in some primary colors. Depending on the mood you’re trying to go for, it helps to know which color matches your mood; green for a sense of nature, blue for wistful relaxation, red for intense passion, etc. You can brighten or darken your wall colors if you’re feeling luxurious.
SHINE A LIGHT (OR TWO, OR THREE…..)
It would be pointless to have a rec room if you’re not going to see anything in it. And it would be REALLY pointless if the light you use makes your hard artistic work look faint and blurry. As the old adage goes: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. This applies to the classic, environmentally-friendly LED light bulb. A single white bulb can shine an entire section, but if you decided to color your walls, multiple RGB bulbs can work wonders to enhance the visual appeal.
FURNISH YOUR FLOOR
You have many options when it comes to furnishing the very ground you walk on; ceramic tiles for that smooth stride, wood panels for a retro style, carpets for a relaxed feel. Whatever choice you make, the one right for you can elevate your emotions to a point that even standing in the room can feel like the relaxing act in the world.
That’s not all! Should you decide to go even further, you can choose to elevate certain parts of your rec room to give it that professional landscape look, or add rugs to give off a more homely feel. Just make sure that you know what you’re doing; slips and slides don’t make for fun escapades…..
EQUIPMENTS ABOUND
Well, it would be pointless to have a rec room without anything recreational in it! Think of this space as an extended portion of your living room, where you live for the tranquility. A couple of shelfs dedicated for books or board games the whole family can enjoy, a large couch on which lounging is encouraged and electronics setup with 4K TV and the latest game console for your children (or maybe even you) to enjoy!
Any combination of these can make give your dedicated rec room a vibe unmatched by any other living space. Depending on your stylistic choices, they can complement each other or bring out a texture clash that can either make you start anew, giving you another excuse to improve upon your craft, or inadvertently make a brand new fashion statement of interior design the likes of which anyone has ever seen. The possibilities are endless, and all it takes is a quick glance into the psyche to make something great.
