A room is any distinguishable space within a structure. Usually, a room is separated from other spaces or passageways by interior walls; moreover, it is separated from outdoor areas by an exterior wall, sometimes with a door. Historically the use of rooms dates at least to early Minoan cultures about 2200 BC, where excavations on Santorini, Greece at Akrotiri reveal clearly defined rooms within certain structures.

Famous quotes containing the word room:
“A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”
—Virginia Woolf (18821941)
“Now who could take you off to tiny life
In one room or in two rooms or in three
And cork you smartly, like the flask of wine
You are? Not any woman. Not a wife.”
—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
“Weve forgotten what its like not to be able to reach the light switch. Weve forgotten a lot of the monsters that seemed to live in our room at night. Nevertheless, those memories are still there, somewhere inside us, and can sometimes be brought to the surface by events, sights, sounds, or smells. Children, though, can never have grown-up feelings until theyve been allowed to do the growing.”
—Fred Rogers (20th century)
