(Redirected to Recreation room article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A recreation room arranged as a children's play area in a Chicago home.

A recreation room (also known as a rec room, rumpus room, or ruckus room) is a room used for a variety of purposes, such as parties, games and other everyday or casual use. The term is common in the United States, but is less common in the United Kingdom where the preferred term is games room. Often children and teenagers will entertain their friends in the rec room, which is often located in the basement, away from the main living areas of the house.



Recreation rooms can vary in themes and styles, but they generally have a basic setup:



Recreation rooms are normally centred around some form of entertainment, typically an audio/video setup. This can consist of something as elaborate as a projection screen with surround sound or something as simple as a base model television.


Couches, pub tables/chairs, bar stools, and recliners are all used in recreation rooms.


Tabletop games are frequent in recreation rooms. In addition to games played on a normal table are those using custom tables such as table tennis (ping pong), table football (foosball), air hockey, and billiards (pool). Other games can include dart boards and arcade games.

Food & Drink

Popcorn machines, ice cream machines, soda fountains, and classic soda coolers can sometimes be found in recreation rooms.
