Can a master bedroom be in the basement?
Accordingly, is it OK to have a bedroom in the basement?
To begin, not all basement rooms need a legal egress window, but certainly no basement bedrooms will be allowed without one. Today, any bedroom-sized room with a closet is considered a bedroom, no matter what the blueprint says. As for size requirements, expect to need a window with an opening of 5.7 square feet.
