I spent almost my entire childhood playing video games in rec rooms and really miss that extra space that does not need to really fulfill any specific function.

Ugh! This is fabulous! We are doing a full gut and remodel of our 1950's ranch-style home this year and were able to eek out a small room were, until now, calling the game room, but will now be renamed the "rec room." I am seriously considering coving one wall with plaid fabric and I'm now on the hunt for a denim couch just like the one we had in the 80s

I am old and so grew up in rec room land and the best one I ever saw had a wall to wall carpet with games woven into it like hopscotch and chess. There were indeed tweed plaid sofas, and also fishnets on the wood paneled walls and a lobster trap coffee table and a lighthouse lamp. You kids are on to something!

Love this! Our someday ‘house attic expansion’ we are thinking about is suddenly clear to me, we want a rec room in our attic! We just didn’t know what name to give our longing. Also *hidden value, a place to put the cat/dog beaten couch. And start over. Yes. Yes. yes.
