Well I'm not going to lie. I didn't quite get the main point of the William Trevor's The Room. While the story begins in "the room", I didn't see much connection between the room and the rest of the story.

When she is having her affair, the room seems cosy, but bland. When the affair ends and the room is empty, it could be compared to what she is feeling.
