Keeping rooms are similar to hearth rooms since they are located just off the kitchen of most home plans and may or may not have a fireplace. Keeping rooms date back to the Colonial times when families slept in that area of the home when the rest of the dwelling would be cold. Due to its close proximity to the kitchen and stove, the keeping room remained warm through most of the night. The whole idea of a keeping room is to have a place where the family can gather near the kitchen, so even though homeowners no longer sleep there, house plans with a keeping room are still a very popular place for reading, watching television, playing or keeping warm by the fire.
