There is a growing trend for people that enjoy smoking luxury cigars to have a specific place in their own home where they can enjoy their favorite smoke without spreading tobacco aromas throughout their house.
Therefore, there has been growth in recent years for dedicated smoking rooms in domestic homes. Here we look at some of the things to consider when designing a smoking room in your home.
Before we continue with other ideas, let’s start with additional ventilation first. Ventilation is the most important part of a smoking room. And why additional ventilation? Because it’s best to play it safe. Some extra fresh air, no matter how little, can help with the air circulation in the room. This way you can smoke Cuban cigars with no worries.
To start adding more ventilation in your smoking room, take notice of the windows. Do you think the windows are enough and strategically placed? You may have to install at least one additional window. Also, check your door, perhaps, it is possible to place a grid in the door.
Choose an appropriate location
Now it’s time to select the best location for your smoking room. Select a room that is a bit further away from the main part of the house if possible. This is so the rest of the house won’t smell like smoke. Don’t underestimate the smoke smell, as it can permeate a home if you are not careful. This is especially important if you have kids in the house.
So, choose somewhere a bit isolated. It can be in the basement or the attic. As long as the room is isolated enough and of course, comfortable enough, you can choose that room. Ventilation can also help the smoke to come out instead of lingering around. So, choose a room with good ventilation.
Smoking room décor
Now let’s talk about the décor of your smoking room. If you want a rich, traditional feel, go with darker furniture, leather, and dark wood. Otherwise, if you want a lighter room, go with a light and airy look for the walls and floor. Wood paneling on the walls is also really popular for smoking rooms.
Always avoid heavy brocade-style wallpaper as it can absorb smoke or yellow. This kind of thing will turn yellow sooner or later. Of course, let’s not forget about things that can make you happy and comfortable while smoking in the room. It can be rugs that can be laundered or a chair.
Typically, soft fabrics are not compatible here. Leather is always the best choice, so please remember this. This material doesn’t hold the cigar smoke for long and is much easier to clean. You certainly don’t want your smoking room to look filthy.
Last but not least is the fun décor ideas. If you love playing poker while smoking, for example, then you should invest in a poker table. If you like video games then perhaps, a video game console would work well here. Just keep in mind that smoke and electronics don’t really work well together. So make sure the electronics in the room are well hidden and cleaned regularly. And of course, if you love wine, perhaps a small wine rack could be a great idea as well.
Make it big enough for more people
If you often invite your friends to a cigar party, then you should have enough big smoking room for everyone. Make sure everyone has a place to sit down and have fun. Don’t forget your own special spot in the smoking room. Create enough space for snacks and drinks in the room, so people won’t have to go outside to get them.
Designing a smoking room can be fun, and a room like this is also practical. You certainly don’t want to spread smoke all over the house, especially if there are other people in the house. And a smoking room can be fun and exciting too.
