Lighting is another concern, the best lighting setup is if you can have it where the poker table / tables have direct lighting overhead and the rest of the room has more area lighting. Keep the poker room area for players only (If possible). Set up a losers lounge where people out of the game can hang out and discuss their faults. Try to keep kids out of the area.
