Basement Rec Room

Dark paint and a pool table create a slick sports bar at home for the entertainment of all ages

A modern rec room with furniture, a drinks station complete with bar stools and various games tables was once a boring, underutilized basement. Dark glossy paint on the walls and bulkhead make the atmosphere more adult, but a pool table and soft flooring are kid-friendly. Lighting from pot lights, pendants and wall sconces allows you to adjust the lighting to suit any mood.
