Where did you see it written that way? My guess would be that it's a typo.

Assumed it was a typo - certainly never heard that term used and I've lived in Oz all my life.

The word might sound like that if I had a bad head cold though. ;)

Now I want a loundroom. I'm thinking a massive one of those sound-proofed 'home theatres' but with lounges. Perhaps chaise lounges.

On of the things I have noticed is that here and in Oz, it is a lounge.  No room.  It would be like saying 'a kitchen room'.  It might be a sitting room, or a drawing room, or a family room, but not a lounge room.  One of those language oddities

I tend to say lounge room.

More likely to say I'm sitting on the lounge (ie, the couch/sofa) than going into the lounge.
