Before the advent of central air and heating bedrooms were small to best efficiently stay comfortable. Many of these bedrooms are advertised by today's standards as an office or bonus room. So yes, Joe is absolutely correct in the industry standards of determining what defines a bedroom, but when I walk into a home that has three bedrooms and everyone is using dressers I know that listing the home as a zero bedroom is a dis-service to those clients.
Great question Kim!
Great question. By most industry standards, for a room to be classified as a bedroom it must have three things:
1. A door
2. An egress window
3. A closet
I would add that the room must be accessed via a public part of the house and not through another bedroom.
I hope this helps. Good luck in your search.
