Maximizing Visual Comfort
A rec room has to be inviting. It shouldn’t be like those pristine white rooms with barely any character that you’re used to at schools, but ones that ooze with personality and charm. One of the best ways to do this is to create visual comfort. Lighting, for example, plays a huge role in how comfortable a room is and the type of vibe it has.
If the lighting is too bright, it may be distracting and difficult to relax in. On the other hand, if it’s too dim, you won’t be able to see your surroundings and that poses a logistical problem. The best way to maximize the visual comfort of your rec room’s interior is by utilizing a variety of lighting fixtures that perform various duties. For example, focused lighting would need to be installed in the most important areas of the room, such as near the TV, above the table, seating area, and the entrance. For the rest of the room, use recessed lighting fixtures for some added accent lighting.
Projector and Screen
If there is anything that the global pandemic has proven, is that there are plenty of opportunities to turn your home into the place for all things entertainment. Cinemas hold a very special place in everyone’s hearts, but would it not be easier to have one in your own home? Of course, it would, and luckily there is a very cost-effective way to replicate that cinema experience right at home.
You can find high-quality projectors for around $100. Though they may not be IMAX and the sound quality won’t match what you’re used to in movie theaters, but you will surely have no problems enjoying your favorite flicks in the comfort of your own home. As for a screen you have two options: one is to buy a retractable white canvas and the other is to use a wall. If you have a big white wall, that will work perfectly as a movie screen and it won’t require installation of any kind.
Board and Table Games
Board games are a staple of family entertainment. Even with a single game that you and your household love playing, you’ll have countless hours of fun. There are also table games that are requisites of family rec rooms, such as table tennis, air hockey, foosball, and plenty more. You can take your pick from websites like gameplease.com and other retailers with a big variety of table games perfect for friends and family.
As for board games, you can buy them in bulk and have them on standby any time you want to get competitive. Throughout the many years that they have been around, you can choose from a myriad of board games that all play differently and suit different tastes. You can get competitive, play as a team, play against the board game itself, or simply enjoy something light and fun that is not competitive in any way.
