Yes, sounds like your room is the best place, more safe there.
My GCC and my Parrotlet have their own room, with tons of toys, big cages, each other to chirp back and forth to, and me coming in and out all day. My Hahns is in a huge cage in our family room. He's in when I'm not in the room, and out when I am, like watching t.v. He comes back to the bird room with me a couple of times a day, and they all get time out of their cages -- on opposite sides of the room and with me supervising. All three also get one hour of "out" time before bed at 7 p.m. (that's where I am now).
I try to make sure my birds are happy in or out of their cages, and all know how to entertain themselves. I don't want them to be cage-bound or unhappy in their cages, so I try to strike a balance between the two. This way, when I have to be gone for the day, I don't worry that they're sitting in their cages, bored or unhappy.
Anyway, that's what I do. I'm sure you'll find the right situation for Ice!
