TV Room, Den, Rec Room....

It doesn't matter what people are calling them these days... I want one!

The remodelling is going great over here at the Hurren home. Most of the major stuff is done and I've only got a few painting and other projects left on the inside. (The outside? Well that's a whole other story!)

One of the big projects I'm mulling over in my head is the basement Rec/T.V./Den room. My plan is that it will serve multi-purposes. Remember the pirate ship fort from our last place? We want to do something similar here, some kind of an indoor fort/playground. That will take up about a third of the basement space but we also want to make some space down there for entertaining guests and make it a fun 'hang-out' space for the boys and their friends. We've already moved a pellet stove into the room in one corner and I've got hopes of somehow building some kind of a frame with mantle around it to make it a little more presentable. We also want to put a t.v. in the space somewhere and this is where I'm torn. We've though about building a sort of half wall to separate the t.v. space from the play space and I think this could work out really great. It would give us the option of putting the tv into the built-in or using some sort of a corner tv stand and then positioning the couches and chairs around that area to make it a little more cozy. I would love to add a fun and funky rug, a large and chunky coffee table, some kind of a sofa table and of course some unique and colorful art and other accessories. Here are a few pictures of some inspiration I've seen around.

So what do you think? Any advice? What do you love or hate about your Rec/T.V./Den space? What would you add if you could? What do you find useless in your space? Advice is certainly welcomed!!!

Cool ideas for sure! Love the photos of inspiration.

My only advice??

Probably to make sure the built in play area (indoor fort/playground) could be built...... keeping in mind the near future..........that it would need to be easily taken down and the room changed again .....as they grow up WAY too fast. ; D

Have fun!

Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I love room #1. So relaxing and inviting. I'm sure the boys are going to be happy if they get anything like those playground pictures. :)
