What is the most important room in the house?

In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy says there’s no place like home.

It’s a speech that has resonated with people around the world, and leads us to ask the question: if home is where the heart is, what’s the most important room in the house?

Do you spend the most time in the kitchen, relaxing in the living room, or perhaps feel most comfortable in your bedroom? Is your garden your favourite space, or perhaps you feel most creative in your office or studio?

Tell us what you think is the most important room in the house by voting in our Silversurfers poll.

I chose my bedroom, because I love my bed. It’s the restful quiet place where I can review the day past and look forward to the new day ahead, before falling into a cosy slumber.
