Can anyone shed light on what the requirements are for a room to be officially considered a “bedroom” in my listing? Does a room have to be 100% dedicated to being a room in which someone sleeps in a bed, with no other use?
In my situation, I have two 100% bedrooms (each with a bed, closet) that aren’t used for other purposes. However, I’ve turned another room that used to be used as a 100% bedroom into a multi-use “living room”, which has a full-size futon/sofa for sitting/sleeping and a TV. As it used to be a 100% bedroom, the room has its own closet. Thus, my guests have 3 rooms in which they can hang their clothes in a closet, close the door and sleep in a bed.
I currently list my place with 2 bedrooms (only counting the 100% bedrooms). Should I be including the other room as a bedroom too, in terms of the bedroom count? I don’t want to be in any way misleading to my guests. I already clearly describe the room layout and sleeping arrangements in my listing description. If I include the futon/den room in the bedroom count, and clearly explain the arrangement in the listing description, would that potentially cause guests to feel misled?
Thanks so much!! – M
