Good Morning!!

In Macomb county it must have a closet and a window to be considered a bedroom.  If it's below ground level it must have an egress window.

Good Luck

thanks for the answer about the 2 egress needed. 

There are 2 styles of apartments that both have a extra room.
1 with no closet or window.
1 with no closet but it does have a window.

We generally advertise both as a bonus or den but a few of our floor plan names have 'bedroom".

Yes to two ways of egress including one to the outside. The one to the outside must be a window or a door.  The window must meet size requirements as well as maximum height above the floors as defined by code.   In most communities, a closet does matter.     If you have to walk through the room to access another bedroom, it can't be counted as a bedroom.

Could you describe the room in question?

Actually there can be some variation depending on where you live, I would check with the county assessor.  However, to my knowledge I think you have to have a closet and a door for it to be considered a bedroom.  In some areas you need a window as well.
