Position of piano

I've seen grand pianos turned several different ways - usually with keys in the corner or keys facing the main room. How do you determine the positioning of the piano?

I do not know if there are rules of positioning from a musical stand point, but we chose a position that we liked in the room where the person playing could be seen from anywhere in the room.

Yes, there are rules. The piano lid when open directs the sound into the room (i.e., audience). The piano should sit with keys on the left, performer's right shoulder is closest to the audience. We have Franz Liszt to thank for the sideways perspective. His profile was what he wanted people to see! :-D And don't put potted plants on the piano, it will ruin the finish with every watering.
