I believe that a bedroom should technically have a closet and a window but in my experience, I have seen many homes on the market that count rooms without closets as bedrooms. There are also requirements regarding the size of the window for emergency exits so it would be best to check with the Department of Safety and Building: http://ladbs.org/LADBSWeb/public-home.jsf
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Great answers from Dorene, Don, Ron, Madelaine and Cindy. I love Realtors who know the standards. They are not vague or non-commit types. Good client representation.
Need a knowledgeable, thorough inspection with infrared technology?
In the past my experience has found that you do need a closet, and have had to build one in the past, but you never know.
Planning and zoning in the city or county could tell you, and if a permit is needed or not.

If the room does not have a closet, it can be considered a BONUS room but not a bedroom.
You can had a modular closet to the room, and it will become a bedroom.
Go to your local IKEA they have a selection of modular closets. You can also contact closet world or a similar company.
Best of luck to you!!!

In wholesale mortgage banking no room without a closet would be considered a bedroom. (That goes back to 1994 assessments).
I would not know what the building codes would say or if they address that issue but for marketing Real Estate, we are looking for a closet and a window.
