In most cases for a room to be considered a bedroom it has to have a closet. However if it does not have a closet you don't have to build one. You can put a prefabricated closet in there. Anything that can double as a closet will do. I suggest putting a screw in it and bolting it to the wall for safety purposes but you don't have to. This is is much more affordable way to add a closet and call your room a bedroom. And many times these units are better than the standard closet.&nbsp; Tue, 12 Nov 2013 18:29:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-clasifies-a-room-as-a-bed-room/518711/ 2013-11-12T18:29:00Z From what I've learned - ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-clasifies-a-room-as-a-bed-room/518711/ From what I've learned - the room needs a closet to be considered a bedroom Tue, 12 Nov 2013 15:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/What-clasifies-a-room-as-a-bed-room/518711/ 2013-11-12T15:06:00Z
