Hollywood homes are being hit with a new craze for ‘snoratoria.’
Tom Cruise, 49, is the latest star to create such a room when he converted a guest room at the 30 million dollar mansion he shares with his wife Katie Holmes.
The spaces are both padded and atmospherically-controlled in order to reduce the effects of snoring, and once the door is locked the user can not be heard from the outside.
Regular snoring affects around 25% of people, is more prevalent in men. The chances of a person snoring also increase the older that person gets.
Tom Cruise is far from alone in his snoring affliction; other famous snorers from history include
Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria, while David Arquette “shook walls” with his snoring according to his ex-wife Courtney Cox, and Judith Sheindlin, more commonly known as Judge Judy, also installed such a room recently.
