Smells Like Teen Spirit
Not all retro rec rooms have to go back 30 or 40 years or more. If you look into the not-too-distant past, you may be inspired by a music movement that was all about shaggy hair, flannel shirts and distorted guitars. For a 1990s grunge theme, channel your inner Kurt Cobain and repurpose those old flannel shirts into curtains. Decorate with rock posters for a dive bar feel, with a pool table and dart board for gaming fun. Microbrew beer on tap is a must, as is an ample stereo system. Then just load up your Pearl Jam CDs, crank the volume and prepare to rock. Hold the mosh pit.
