3: Storage units and the Kitchen | What's Cooking? | The kitchen is one of the most memorial rooms in a castle. It is very important. Kitchen staff includes: the taster, butler, pantler, carver, and cup bearer. | The Storage Room | Located in the basement. It's used for holding food. All kinds of food is put in here to keep it from rotting and such. People don't usually work in here, except if receiving food to cook.

They sleep in private apartments just for them.Apartments in a castle were usually given one complete floor.A bed, a fireplace (in King's room usually only), a toilet concealed off, closets, and big windows, and other items are found in bed chambers.
