Bedroom

Description

A bedroom is defined as a room in a dwelling which is used, or intended for sleeping in.

The following rules apply:

A room is considered to be a bedroom if it is furnished as a bedroom even if it is not being used at the time of the data collection. A room furnished as a bedroom should include a sleeping facility such as a bed or mattress, and could include items such as a dresser and chest of drawers.

Room equivalents should not be counted for one roomed dwellings (ie bed-sitting room). A one-roomed dwelling should be counted as having one bedroom and therefore one total room.

A sleepout adjacent to a private dwelling should be counted as a bedroom if it is used and/or furnished as a bedroom and is occupied by members of the same household as occupy the dwelling.

A caravan adjacent to a private dwelling should be counted as a bedroom only if it is used as a bedroom and is occupied by members of the same household as occupy the dwelling.

A room (such as a living room) that is used as a bedroom at night, either short-term or long-term, should not be counted as a bedroom unless the only bedroom facilities in the dwelling are in that room. If the only bedroom facilities in a dwelling are in a room that is also used for another purpose, (ie in a living room), this room should be counted as a bedroom.
