Where do you like hanging out in your home?

So, where do you hang out in your home when you want to be cool during the summer? Or, warm during the winter? What's your favorite room; the bedroom, livingroom, den? Please share. During the winter time we had no problem hanging out and watching television in the living room. The room provided a nice and open space for our little kid to run around while we watched movies. But, now that it's the dead of summer and the window air conditioner is not working in the livingroom, we've had to move our main base of operations elsewhere. So, we converted one of the back bedrooms into a family room. And, that worked for awhile, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. But yesterday, someone moved our little TV back to the living room and now we are all in there just dealing with the heat. It's too much to bear. Personally, I like hanging out in the computer room (which is also a bedroom). It's nice and cool in here! What's your favorite room in your house?

We hang out in the living room the most- We close the shades and curtains in the summer to keep it cooler. Also we hang out outside a lot in the summer- in the pool- in the hammock- on the back deck. In the winter it’s the living room again- It’s the warmest room- and the most comfortable.

i'd always say that my favorite part of the house is my bedroom. i consider it a free space in the house coz i can do anything i want in there. when its summer, i can sleep with only my underwear if its really hot and humid. and during cold days, i stay cuddled up in my room, reading a book or juz watching tv.

My favorite room in our house is the living room . This is where we have the t.v and the computer . We have a big fan to keep it cool in the summer with a lot of windows so it is always nice and bright but we can open the windows and close the drapes if it is getting to hot , which usually we don't have to worry about this . We have only been here for two months as we just bought the house so I don't know what it is going to be like in the living room but the fact that we have a pellet stove in the living room will probably make it the warmest room in the house .

Hi there. The afternoon sun shines in the whole of righthand side of our home, so in summer its cool to hang out on the left hand side of the house, in winter we all hangout on the right side of the house...

Well, we just bought our house, so I'm not sure how it will be during the winter. But for the summer, we've been spending a lot of time down in our basement. We've turned most of the basement into a family room. It's really nice and cool down here, even when it's over 100 degrees outside. The room is plenty big to allow my son room to play. And we've got two of our computers set up down here, along with our biggest TV. I'm really hoping that our basement is one that will stay the same temperature year round. If it does, we will spend the winter hanging out down here, too. Otherwise, we will probably spend most of the winter hanging out in the game room. It's just our third bedroom, but the TV in there is the one that has all of our gaming systems hooked up in there. Most of Elliott's games are stored in there, too, and he has a table that he can play his games on, or color if he wants to.

In my home, I love to hang around in my room only. We have really tiny place because the land here is really expensive and everything is packed together. My room only consists of a bed and the desk with the computer on it. I usually stay in my room most of the time (with or without my mom being around). I feel just comfortable staying there doing my things.

In my country there are only two obvious seasons. Rainy season and draught (hot) season. So during hot weather we usually like hanging out downstairs. Basically we have two living rooms. One for the usual hang out place during the day (when the weather is hot) and the other one during the night (when the weather is cold). Downstairs is also our bathroom, kitchen, sofa and computer. So it is very easy for me to do all the cleaning while at the same time posting in mylot. The weather is cooler downstairs. At daytime the upstairs living room is like being in a sauna. It is very hot! Lol. At night we will always hang out upstairs and watch television. There we also have sofa in the living room. At night here the weather is cool and sometimes it can be very cold during rainy seasons. To me, my favorite place is the upstairs living room because it is actually made presentable for guests too. We have put nice carpets on the floor and pretty drapes to complement the sofa and carpet. Plus we have a huge television set in the upstairs living room.

Usally my living room is cool and my computer is in the living room but the coolest place is my bedroom. If I had more roon in it I would have my computer in there. I would have to get comcast to set up there wires in there to so I am sort of stuck in this spot with my computer in the living room.

I really love to be outside. But when I am at home I love to be in the kitchen. In the evenings it is the livingroom watching a movie with the family. If I am not feeling well my favorite spot is my garden tub in my bathroom.
