"A piano can provide a centerpiece for a home, gathering a family for a shared activity or entertaining guests."
UPDATE 1: "The homeowner's seriousness about music would determine where the instrument is placed in the house. Serious musicians who are purchasing or building a new home might want to plan where to put their piano from the outset. For instance, it could be incorporated into a music room or a library."
UPDATE 2: "Lighting is another important factor to take into consideration. The person playing the piano needs adequate light to read sheet music."
