Describing a room

When describing a room 1st you must talk about which room your entering. Like a living room. After you enter you want to sign what you see, like a couch or a rug. Next you go left to right. If their are 2 of the same object like a window you should sign both were they are in the room. Describing a room you need classifiers or the person your showing it to won't understand. Like if your signing random stuff in the room they might not understand. Also you must describe what everything is on. Like a lamp on a table.
