4 Rec Room Mood Board Designs

Four fun rec room / gameroom / playroom / hangout space design mood boards perfect for kids, teens, and adults.

Ohhhhhhhhhh snap, y’all. I’ve been dying to share our next big room makeover with you guys ever since we began the planning phases two months ago!

Remember how I said we want to make designing/renovating for super deserving people a “thing” this year? I wasn’t exaggerating.

And I think this next room might be my favorite one yet.

Next month, we’ll be starting a huge rec room makeover for some friends of ours, The Carney family.

They are such amazing people; the couple are both Air Force veterans, and they have NINE kids! And we’d totally adopt every single one of them because they’re all total sweethearts. (Well, okay. We’re not signing up to adopt nine kids, but you get the sentiment. They’re awesome.)

I’ll show you the space we’re working with soon, but while in the planning stage, I pulled together 4 different mood board designs for their rec room / playroom / teen hangout space.

They have several big needs:

  • Tons of storage for toys
  • Room for a small home office
  • Space for lounging / movie watching
  • A craft/homework table
  • A dog kennel for their pup

It’s a tall order, but I think we can do it.

Mood boarding is definitely the single most helpful tool that gives me the best overall vision, so I’m sharing a bit of my process in my Instagram Stories today too, if you’d like a tutorial.

Which one of these is your favorite?!

  1. Wow! I love all four, but 3 & 4 , with a game table in both, are my choices. No matter which one you choose, the space will be fabulous

  2. I love that Quinton sofa, thanks for that new goal purchase, lol.
    I have leather chairs similar to the pictured BH&G (also from walmart.com Roundhill Furniture Lotusville Vintage) in my dining room now and absolutely LOVE them.

    They’re comfortable for long conversations around the table and easily cleaned with soap & water if there are spills (yay toddlers & dogs).
