We hear about a lot of luxury home "trends" here at Apartment Therapy — gift wrapping rooms (hi Candy Spelling!), or rooms dedicated just to scrapbooking come to mind. The latest example comes out of the United Kingdom and is being called a "snoring room"...

When poking your snoring bed mate no longer works, breathe right strips are a waste of money, and even twin beds don't put enough distance between you and the sound of sawing logs, there's the snoring room. It's basically a second master bedroom, à la Victorian England, used when couples retire separately to their own quarters to get a good night's rest. These rooms get their names from snoring, but they're also for those who want to watch television until they fall asleep, or people who like the read at night with the light on.

Given that one in four couples already sleep separately, it's not a huge leap to envision entirely different spaces (provided you have the luxury of space and money, of course).

If you could, would you ever buy a home with a snoring room?
