Creating the perfect environment for shisha

Don’t be afraid to cancel a night out in favour of staying in with hookah. After all, the pastime is a great way to spend a few hours – whether you’re with a group of friends, chatting one-on-one with your partner or simply enjoying some alone time. You can really get the most out of your evening if you create the perfect environment for shisha before lighting it up. With this in mind, here are three things that you can do to make your shisha-smoking experience even more enjoyable.

You’ll need to give some thought to seating if you’re to create the perfect environment for shisha. Since the hookah will make you feel relaxed and carefree, it would be a good idea to make sure you can easily recline or lounge around while smoking. Don’t be afraid to sit on the floor rather than upright on a chair. In addition, a few cushions won’t go amiss when you really start to feel laid-back.


You’ll find that shisha can last for hours if you keep changing the flavours. Therefore, it can’t hurt to make sure there are a few activities to do – especially if you’re with a group of friends. For instance, you could position the hookah in front of the television so that you can flick through different programmes while smoking. Don’t forget that shisha is a social activity by nature and is perfect for killing a few hours with mates, much like watching television.


There’s really no need to open the windows fully while there’s a shisha on the go. While it might be nice to let some fresh air in, the presence of smoke can sometimes add to the atmosphere in the room. As well, the fruity flavours can be quite pleasant when they’re circulating the room. Ultimately, it’s probably best to just crack a window open ever so slightly.
It shouldn’t take too long to craft the perfect environment for shisha. Once you’ve got hold of all the equipment and are ready to light up, these few bits of advice should only take a few moments to set up.
