Do you have a room in your home that is "your room?" What do you call the room? For some reason, I do not like the term "man cave," and a "den" is the room that Ward Cleaver would call his own. Can't use "family room" because it is just me living here.
While i, like several other commentors, live alone so the whole house is mine, my library is my favorite room. Although i wished for a library room for years, I had books scattered all over the house on assorted shelves. About 10 years ago I decided there was no reason I didn't have one other than I just hadn't made one. So, I made a room into the "library" .
I put in a larger window, tore off the old flooring to expose the wood floor beneath it, papered the ceiling with maps and installed a crystal chandelier. I moved my largest bookcases into the room, painted them black and put as many books as will fit in them. Bought a computer "armoire" and moved the computer in there. I also have my grandparents' antique library table in there. I would say it is my "happy place".
I live alone. With three dogs and a cat. All the rooms are mine and none of the rooms are mine. Not even the bathroom. The dogs follow me everywhere. The cat follows me if it amuses her. Before bed, I spend most of my time in the living room where the TV and desktop are located. When the dogs have to go out, I take my book to the little deck out back and read while they do their thing. Early in the morning there's coffee involved. At night, the dogs sleep on the bed. Usually kitty doesn't. I call it home.
I have a "sewing" room. I have a sewing machine, serger, embroidery machine, many scissors, rotary cutters, yarn, fabric and craft supplies. Yes, it does need its own room. The closet is full and overflowing with fabric. I also store stuff in there, like wrapping supplies. And yes it needs some organization. Any quilter will tell you that you NEVER throw away scraps, it might just what you need to finish a project and save you a trip to the fabric store. Fabric stores are wonderful dangerous places. I go in for one item thinking 15 minutes max and come out 4 hours later with 24 or 30 new items.
I have the entire top floor of the modified A frame. It is called "Keep Out".
He is confined to his area the master bedroom with his own bathroom. I call it "the bunker". Please sign this disclaimer prior to entering. It is a disaster & I urge all to enter at their own risk. He has access to communal areas, the garage, the kitchen. Not the other rooms as he would trash that too. He has an area of the basement & that is a nightmare. He is necessary for the income .....& so am I. Stuck.
My entire one room Songkhla apartment is "my room" since I'm single and live alone. I have a bathroom, big bedroom, and a balcony.
It's hard for me to grasp that men must obey women and are only "allowed" to have certain rooms for themselves.
Women pretty much do what they want and own whatever they want.
I have my BnB ...and the basement bedroom the BnB is my hobby room (painting). Then, I have a second house across the street that is my office (living room) and is wall to wall bookshelves and my computer desk, filing cabinets, etc. This is where I conduct "business" (I do editing/consulting/writing and run the BnB and have rental houses) and where my rattie roommate lives with me. One bedroom in this house is also my bedroom/TV room which I share with my rattieboy...another bedroom is my "walk-in closet" and the third bedroom is just storage. The kitchen in this house is my "break room" ...hahaha I guess, technically, they are all "my rooms".
