A room is any distinguishable space within a structure. Usually, a room is separated from other spaces or passageways by interior walls and windows; 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. At the start of the 21st century, the average British home had five or six rooms.
