Yo! So I'm writing a fantasy, and I have this palace. It's big. And there are a lot of rooms, but I don't know the proper names for most of them. I don't have a specific time period in mind. I was mostly inspired by the late 18th, early 19th century, but I'm not stuck to a set year. However, I don't want to use a lot of modern-esque terms either, like living room, bed room, etc. They're boring. So I'm using drawing room for the queen's living room, dressing room for closet, bed chamber instead of bedroom (though I'm open to suggestions), and washroom instead of bathroom. I'll also include state rooms and state apartments. But that's mostly all I can come up with... And I still need names for all sorts of rooms! Like, what's the difference between a parlor and a lounge? Is there another name for dining hall? Also, what is a good name for a room where the Queen and her advisors would go to discuss strategy? (I have it as a War Room at the moment, but it makes me cringe every time I say it.) What about the basement and the maid's quarters? (Were they called "cellars" or what?) A kitchen can still be a kitchen, right? Are the any other rooms that I could potentially add that I'm not thinking of? (It's a big palace, but I'll end up using a lot of rooms.) I've done loads of research, but I think I need an ELI5 (explain like I'm five), because after a while, it all blends together. Any help is greatly appreciated!
