Words to describe rooms of your house?
I say hall instead of foyer (pronounced foyer rather than foryeah).
We have a living room not a great room or parlor or French room.
Our casual eating space we call a breakfast room although other meals are eaten there (I saw a floor plan form the 20s that called it a breakfast porch and that describes our room better I think).
It's a guest room not a spare room nor daughter's bedroom
And our bedroom is a master not the principal or main.
What words do you use to describe the different rooms in your house?
View my blog:
Office (guest bedroom)
(We don't have a dining room, just a kitchen with a table).
Mommy and Daddy's bedroom... No master anyway.
And, the kicker is our "Man Room." My DH started calling it that after he added a large TV and stuff, 4 years before the twins were born. Now my daughter finds that wrong and calls it "family room," but it's really like a second living room. I have no idea. I can't stop calling it the "Man Room" after all these years, even though it is not all manly, and my son's legos are down there!
Sunroom (My tv watching space)
Rec Room (the men's tv watching space)
family room-where we watch tv
Living room, dining room, kitchen, sunroom, manland lol, master bedroom, master bathroom, spare bedroom
MAIN FLOOR LIVING SPACE
front entrance or foyer and side entrance
main or our bedroom
kitchen (kitchen nook)
hall (which is very small)
french country bedroom
girls bedroom or playroom
craft/sewing room (better known as the dungeon right now because it is torture to go in there and see the mess it is in.
****Look at objects not only for what they are, but for what they could be, vg****
blue room (this is the old kitchen and the space we usually eat in. We call it "blue" a/c floor and most of my blue and white china is here)
We have no entry in front. You come right into l.r.
We also have sleeping spaces in attic for DGK's but still just call it attic.
Cellar we call either "my side" or "your side" as we have it roughly divided that way. Sewing/crafts/laundry/storage in front is mine.
Tools/kiln/workshops/storage in back is his.This message has been edited. Last edited by: lady of shallot,
Living/dining: they are not separate rooms, but I just can't see myself calling it a "great room," even tho that's what my realtor calls it!
Kitchen & Breakfast room
Guest room, a.k.a. his office
What I actually call my rooms-
4 bedrooms with my kid's names attached (so and so's room)
My work room (my husband calls this the disaster room) it is my creative/sewing space
gear storage room
storage room where the decorations are
That storage room at the end of the hall with the baskets
Front Hall (there's no back hall LOL)
Morning Room (same size and adjoins family room decorated in similar way)
Our room (master bedroom***)
Great-Great Grandfather's** BR
Box Room (a small bedroom I use for storage)
The bathrooms are described as
1) husband's bathroom
2) hall bathroom
3) back bathroom
Note:*** I personally DETEST the term "master br" for some peculiar reason. The bedrooms at the back of the house are called by my ancestor's names because the beds in those rooms belonged to my beloved Grandmother and my GG Grandfather.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Love, Lu,

and sleep in if I'm snoring too loud!)
Front hall or foyer (foy-ay)
Living Room (Great room according to the architect)

It's a small small condo. But it works for us.

For this house, it's easy. There's the living room, dining room, kitchen, hall, my room, Donnie's room, bath, laundry room. No parlors, foyers, libraries, or sewing rooms and a lot less house cleaning.
I have the standard kitchen, dining room, living room, hall, "my" bathroom, "his" bathroom, our bedroom, and I still call the kid's bedrooms by their name. Son's BR has been converted to office; I usually say the office, but sometimes still say "____"'s room. The spare room is still called "_____"'s room.
We converted a tiny carport into a nice patio at least 20 years ago, and I still say "carport" half the time.
Old habits are hard to break.
