Within today’s custom homes it is not uncommon to see exercise rooms, sewing rooms, studies, offices, dens, family rooms and other similarly labeled non-bedroom spaces shown on residential house plans. However, these same rooms can and are used as bedrooms when a family grows or the house is sold to another family which has different needs.
1. A defined habitable space per Building Code requirements.
2. Privacy to the occupants.
3. Full bathroom facilities (containing either a bathtub or shower) which are conveniently located to the bedroom served.
4. Entry from a common area, not through a room already deemed a bedroom.
