A bedroom needs a heater, whether it’s a radiator or HVAC forced air. You need to make sure that the room doesn’t fall below a certain room temperature.


#3 Window

The most important part is the window. You need the window to be opened to a certain degree to allow air to come in the room to have circulation should the tenant need it.


#4 Closet

You need to make sure that there’s a closet, typically at least 24 inches in depth, the length of it doesn’t matter as much.


#5 Door

This 5th element is the most important because a door is essential not just for privacy but for the safety of tenants as well.


Those are the common or basic aspects of a bedroom. May it be in the attic or in the basement, as long as it has these aspects, it can be considered a bedroom.
