The meaning of room in dream | Dream Interpretation
(1) A room may represent the self, or some aspect of yourself.
(2) It may be a symbol of the womb. Freud tells of a dream in which a girl (the dreamer) entered a room six or eight times and every time saw her father sitting there. Freud saw the dream as expressing the girl’s fantasy of having seen her father come into her mother’s womb while the girl was still a foetus.
(3) If the room is a cellar or basement, it may symbolize vour unconscious.
If it is a room at or near the top of a high building, it may represent consciousness; idealism; loftv aspirations. (But of course an upstairs room may nevertheless symbolize libido, instinctive life and desires: for example, if it is a bedroom where sexual activity is taking place.)
(4) A suite of rooms may express a male dreamer’s polvgamous sexual desires. This docs not mean he is polygamous in real life. On the contrary, he might well be shocked bv the dream. What such a dream exemplifies is the way the unconscious compensates or balances the conscious self: a polygamous person might have monogamous dreams!
A particular feeling state—for instance the room might feel sinister, warm, spacious, cold, etc., so depicts such. Sometimes a room, because of its spaciousness, represents the amount of potential or opportunity one has.

Finding extra rooms: a common dream theme—recognition or discovery of previously unnoticed aspects, abilities, fears, or traits in oneself. Example: There was a room in my house I had never been in before. It was filled with water and had three kittens submerged in it. While in the room I didn’t need to breathe’ (Audrey P).
