Now that the cold weather is upon us, it may be time for you to further explore your hobbies and interests from the comfort of your home.
Having a hobby room for your special interests is a great way to get away from that TV and add some spice into your life.
Wine collecting is a treasured hobby that many can enjoy. Whether you collect bottles worth thousands of dollars or you just like to stock up on your favorites for when you entertain, there’s no better way to display those bottles than a wine cellar.
Wine cellars can vary in size and function. Some people may have a smaller wine cellar that is more like a closet. This can be connected to a room where you like to entertain which will provide you easy access to your favorite wines as well as allow for a great conversation starter about your collection. These cellars also allow you to control more easily the temperature in the room which is perfect for older bottles that need a controlled environment.
You could also turn a whole space into a wine cellar and wine drinking room. Adding a table in the middle of the room will allow you to entertain guests while surrounded by your collection. While this may not be a room for your most prized possessions, it’s a great way to display wine bottles with scenic paintings of vineyards as well as your impressive stemware collection.
To the classy gentleman out there who prefer a peaty scotch and a well-balanced cigar, a smoking room may be the place for you to escape those rainy fall days and cold winter nights. Fill a room with a few nice leather chairs, a couple of shelves for your finest scotches and ports, as well as a few humidors full of your favorite cigars and you will have the perfect place to entertain your buddies. Complete the room with ceiling vents to allow the smoke to escape and avoid the lingering smell of burning tobacco leaves.
When planning your room, don’t be afraid to stay on the simple side. A coffee table and some comfortable leather chairs are all you need to entertain guests and enjoy a glass of wine or a cigar. Avoid distractions like televisions and computers so you can focus on enjoying your hobbies and your guests.
