Where's your PC?

I am thinking of having our PC in the kitchen in our new house.

It's a big kitchen, and will be in a sort of alcove, away from cooking & sink etc.

Is this a good idea? Where is yours?

If you've got a choice, is it better to be shut away in a study or spare room upstairs, or in the middle of things?

It might mean I burn the dinner less often, as well

ours is in an alcove in the living room and it works really well for us as 9/10 times one of us is mostly on it - this way at least we're all in the same room.

at the bottom of the stairs. it would not fit in the living room/dining room as too small and no way would I have it in the bedroom as the bedroom is for s***** only!

Mine is in the corner of our living area, next to the sofa and so I can look out of the balcony window too. Also means I can sit and be online here, but still chat to DH

Yes - better in a living area I think, when we had it upstairs at our old house dh & I never saw each other except in bed.

Ours is in the kitchen. I got fed up with dp closeted away upstairs for hours on end playing games! So we moved it down to the kitchen - now I get to see him in the evenings again!!

its in the 2nd living room (at the back of the house) away from the tv and the baba - peace and quiet in here

In the living room, no space anywhere else for it.

in the study, which is upstairs at the front of the house

alcove in the living room - where I can see what the children are doing on the PC and when on MN I can still talk to everyone.

in the dining room - at the other end from the table

We have a den with telly, record player (yes record player), excessive amounts of DHs CDs and records, a wall plastered with cut outs from magazines (completely covered hap hazard stylee), lots of unuseful crap like remote control cars that have been bought as Christmas presents and the computer. I like having it away from the main living area to avoid being on it too much. Doesnt really work though!
