Listening to Music at Home... But In Which Room?

Listening to Music at Home... But In Which Room?

We have always lived in apartments small enough that a single audio setup would provide music to the entire home — until now. Our home is a larger, more linear layout with the kitchen and bedroom far removed from the living and dining / office area. With only one set of nice speakers, we first thought that a central setup in the foyer, between the living and dining / office area would suit us just fine but lately the silence in the kitchen and bedroom is getting to us. Where do you listen to music at home...

While central location of music in the public space of our home is nice for a party, we prefer music as a background for working, cooking and getting ready in the morning as well as relaxing in bed. The living room is used more for talking, reading, watching TV and dedicated music isn't really necessary, even though it seems like the natural place to have it. Oddly enough, its taken us a full year to define and begin to rectify this music problem (which will include purchasing a second set of speakers for the back of the house), but better now than never!

What is your favorite place to listen to music at home and how does it change the way you use your space?
