How to Set Up Your Own Cigar Room at Home
Do you dream of having a private cigar room filled with all your favorite brands?
If that sounds like a slice of heaven, we can help you out!
You are not the only one who hopes to turn this dream into a reality. Each year the popularity of a cigar room continues to grow, and it is easy to see why. Experts predict that the industry’s market will reach over 25.26 billion USD by 2030.
If you want to create your cigar lounge before the trend becomes a craze, read on to learn how it’s done!
Create the Perfect Cigar Room Atmosphere
When you step into the room, there should be a sense of a cigar lounge.
You know you are in the right place when you walk into an Irish bar. The venue is dark, surrounded by wooden features, and has a cozy atmosphere.
A cigar room has similar traits to a bar. Just switch out the live band for some smooth jazz and the pints of beer for boxes of cigars.
Traditional Cigar Room Decor
Traditional cigar room decor has a masculine vibe. That is because, historically, people created the spaces as men-only clubs.
However, you can tweak some features to suit your tastes.
The first thing that comes to mind is the dark interior. Stained wood or dark mahogany are ideal for the walls and floorboards.
Not only is it visually appealing, but it doesn’t trap the odors like other fabrics. So your home doesn’t continually have a smokey aroma.
Another crucial element is to keep your ornaments as minimalistic as possible. Many cigar rooms have a simplistic design. Therefore a trendy layout will take away from the classic old-school feel.
Furniture for a Cigar Room in a House
The furniture is the difference between a good cigar room and an exceptional one. It is like the last piece of the puzzle to complete the picture.
Of course, every authentic cigar lounge needs multiple leather chairs and coffee tables. It should have at least one large sofa and a couple of wingback armchairs.
Tuscan or bistre brown shades look great on any piece of furniture in the room.
If your room has the space, these items will take your haven to a whole new level:
- Pool or snooker table
- Library shelving filled with books
- A mini-bar packed with your favorite liquors
- Record player
- Cigar boxes for Dominican cigars
Lighting When Building a Cigar Room
Getting the right light balance is a simple and effective cigar lounge tip. However, many first-timers avoid or forget about this helpful trick.
When you first moved into your home, you probably hoped for plenty of natural light. But that isn’t what you need for a cigar lounge. It must be dark, but not too unlit, where you can’t see your guests.
Add many small light sources throughout the room to keep your mob boss-like vibe. If you sit near your bar, you might have overhead lights to illuminate the setting. When you head back to your comfortable armchair, switch on the lamp beside you.
Dimmer switches are an excellent idea. So you can keep the light source down low and dull.
