    a room off another

    Hi, I'd like to know what "off" in the following sentence means

    "The tv room off the kitchen"

    Is the tv room inside the kitchen or next to it or whereelse?

    Re: a room off another

    It is next to it, and you reach that room by passing through the first room.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
