What does it mean when you dream about a room?

Dreams of rooms have a wide variety of meanings. An appealing and comfortable room may indicate that the dreamer is enjoying opulence and satisfaction in life. A stark and confining room, like a prison cell, may mean the dreamer feels repressed and trapped. Sometimes rooms are simply stages for the dream and harken back to earlier periods of life, for example, childhood or a previous marriage. Dreams about rooms often relate to hidden areas of the unconscious mind.
