messy, in a mess, neat, tidy
Could anyone judge the following sentences?
1) The room is messy.
2) The room is in a mess.
3) The room is neat.
4) The room is tidy.
Just want to be confident when saying these words. Thanks!

Re: messy, in a mess, neat, tidy
All four of your statements are perfectly correct. In casual conversation, however, "tidy" sounds a bit stilted, and "neat" (as in sentence #3) is more commonly used.
