About “dans”

In the last sentence, the English prompt was, “we go into the living room.” I understand that “dans” means in, but for the act of getting there, I thought it would be more appropriate to say, “nous allons au salon.” If were were already there, I would think “dans” appropriate. Can you help me understand?

Hi Charles, 

In my opinion -

Nous allons au salon We go to the living room

Nous allons dans le salon We go into to the living room

But probably splitting hairs...
