When it comes to smoking and vaping, there are a number of drawbacks to this ubiquitous vice. After all, if you smoke or vape yourself, I’m sure you’ve noticed just how often that interferes with your life, as most establishments don’t permit either within the building or sometimes even on the premises. In many cases, even renting an apartment can leave you feeling left out in the cold, literally and figuratively, when even your home is not a safe space for you. This is really rather harsh considering the smoking and vaping are addictive by design, and so you’re being punished for something that isn’t your fault. However, maybe you, yourself, simply don’t want to smoke or vape around your own home, but you probably still don’t want to be stuck smoking outside when the Winter hits. Therefore, having a smoking lounge within you home can do you a lot of good. Here are some tips to make this dream a reality.
First and foremost, you’re obviously going to need a spare room to convert into your smoking lounge, so this isn’t for everyone. Once you have the space you need, it’s time to start getting creative. You’re going to need seating, of course, for yourself and any other smokers living with you, and possibly even accommodations for guests. Once you’ve taken care of this essential first step, you can decorate with decor from Home Decorators Collection. This is when you infuse the lounge with some much needed personality. You’ll want to create and cultivate a relaxing atmosphere, as smoke breaks are also a way of coping with stress to begin with, so you wouldn’t want stress to be a result of the lounge, of course. One concern we have about smoking in the home is nicotine stains, so we need to take that into consideration. While you can clean the walls regularly to keep these stains at bay, you may also want to invest in a darker coat of paint or wallpaper in the lounge that will both make the stains nigh invisible and contribute to the relaxing atmosphere you desire.
