The kitchen, I guess, as it's the room in which it's most important to be able to find things and that has the most regularly used things. But really I like every room to have a place for everything.

The hallway, so that you can get inside. Pretty much anywhere else, it's possible to cope with things being completely disorganised.

Definitely the kitchen. It would be horrible trying to cook if you had to hunt for the proper tools and utensils.

Bathroom; if things in the bathroom are in the wrong place, yuck.

Kitchen so you can find cooking tools

I don't hold this to be a truth in any room in my house.
Stuff will show up in a room and as long as it is not in the way it stays there until needed, at which point if it was another room then it stays there.

Argh! Most of my rooms and slightly jumbled. I like a nice tidy kitchen.

My living room for everything

Probably the kitchen. The bathroom would be a close second.

My wife and I are both pretty OCD when it comes to this sort of thing, except she's not so fussed when it comes to what goes on inside closets, cupboards and drawers.

All rooms are important in this respect, least of all the living room.

I'm voting bathroom, because one isn't always very awake in there to cope with things being out of place.
Kitchen is also critical though because it's so frequently used.

I have everything ergonomically located and standardized, such that I could do most frequent things like grind and prepare coffee with my eyes closed in a few seconds.
Most every table has a pen and razor blade on the corner. The brooms do get shifted around a bit, but I always have one in easy reach in each area of the house.
I even take care to correct my dual-light switches so I don't usually have to give an instant's thought on which way to flick them.

Most visitors would see my home as a disastrous mess, but all the stuff lying out everywhere is lying in a particular spot for a particular purpose, and I know where it all is.

Also my memory doesn't delete entries, so ever storing anything in more than one place screws me up, and often requires me to search more than one location.
