It is important to note the typical cost vs. return in a recreation room. According to appraisal expert, Leslie Sellers, president of the Appraisal Institute, homeowners should recognize that a rec room is a secondary space, and when it comes time to sell, there is not a great amount of value added to the space just by having high-end detailing and amenities.
The trick is to try to not over-improve the space. A standard finish is acceptable in a room that is designed to be turned into just about anything. For a potential buyer to see the rec room as livable, basic finishes and a clean look turn more heads that a decorative chandelier or hand-carved exotic wooden trim.
It won't matter if you don't have the 60-inch flat screen with surround sound or the most expensive pool table; design and functionality can play a big part in turning a basic space into a more inviting and enjoyable place to hang out with family and friends.
