A storage closet or storage room is perhaps the greatest analogue of a cell vacuole to a dwelling. The vacuole is an organelle with a surrounding membrane that may store anything from water to enzymes, food, or waste items. A storage room in a house, on the other hand, frequently maintains a wide array of objects. A storage room might be used to keep tools and equipment organized or accessible, but it could also be filled with old furniture or junk.
The word "vacuole" comes from Latin meaning "empty space". Thus, a vacuole is a cavity or hollow space within a cell containing material not necessary for survival of the organism. Although many cells contain multiple vacuoles, only one is shown in figure 1 below. Vacuoles provide space for substances to accumulate before they are disposed of by cells through processes such as digestion or excretion. For example, digestive juices contain acids that can break down proteins and carbohydrates; the resulting amino acids and sugar molecules are stored in the vacuole until they can be absorbed into blood vessels or discharged from the body in urine or feces.

The main room (cella) contained the god to whom the temple was devoted, as well as a table for supplemental gifts or libations and a tiny altar for incense. A chamber or rooms behind the cella were used by temple attendants to store equipment and offerings. Other rooms may have been used for sacrificial rituals or as meeting places. The whole was usually surrounded by a peristyle garden.
A Roman temple was built on a podium that raised it above ground level. This allowed for ventilation and also made it possible to place other buildings on either side without interfering with the view from the road outside. The podium was often shaped like a cube or a rectangle, with each corner capped by a large stone. The walls of the temple building were made of wood or marble, but most often brick. There were several rooms within the temple complex: the atrium, which served as an entrance hall; the propria, which was used by priests living on site; and the sacra, which contained objects sacred to the gods. Each temple had its own particular layout, but generally they were similar to one another.
People traveled long distances to visit these temples for prayer and sacrifice. They were located near roadsides or in central locations within their respective cities, so that travelers could stop by them before heading home. Many survived today because they were converted into churches during the early Christian era.
It was a space meant to confine a certain activity to one room in the house—a room that was not inadvertently located far away from bedrooms, the kitchen, and dining areas. Smoking areas were also given their own distinct interior style. Fireplaces, for example, were often large and bulky, so they're not used in smoking rooms but rather as decorative features.
The first smoking rooms were built by wealthy individuals as private clubs where they could smoke cigars without worrying about offending non-smokers. These early smoking rooms were typically small, airy spaces with windows that offered views of the outdoors. They usually had two chairs, a table, and a couch for relaxing after a hard day's work. The smell of tobacco might still be present in these rooms, but it was mostly covered up by other things people like about living in houses: the smell of wood burning in fireplaces, the aroma of cooking food, and the scent of flowers from the garden.
In time, smoking became less popular among adults, so smoking rooms were also built into public buildings such as airports and libraries. Today, smoking rooms remain in luxury hotels and casinos where smoking is allowed by law because smokers are willing to pay more for exclusive services.
A smoking room is also defined as an area within a house where smoking is permitted. In larger homes, this may be an entire side or floor of a bedroom.
A living room is a room in a house that is used to entertain guests, converse, read, or watch television. A living room is also known as a lounge, a sitting room, a front room, or a parlor. It is distinguishable from other rooms in a house by its purpose. Other rooms may have similar amenities (such as a bed), but only the living room provides a place for people to sit and talk.
The word "living" here means "relating to life; having the power of living." Thus, this room is where you live when you are home, so it is appropriate to call it a living room.
In large houses, separate living rooms may be found on each floor, while in smaller homes, there often isn't enough space for this. In such cases, the family room may serve as a living room as well as a place to hang out with friends and watch TV.
Living rooms usually have a fireplace, which is also found in dining rooms and master bedrooms. However, a living room should not be considered incomplete without a fire place. Fire places give living rooms an extra level of coziness that can't be achieved otherwise. Additionally, fire places are attractive additions that many homeowners choose to upgrade to with their remodels.
Other common features include seating, a couch, chairs, a table, a television, and art.
