A common bedroom usually have bathroom and windows inside it. But in crowded cities most bedroom built without windows and the bathroom was built outside and should share it with other people.

Common furnitures in a bedroom are bed, sofa, air-conditioner, make-up desk, wardrobe, television set, carpet.

These matters are very culture-specific. Possibly this text could be rewritten and re-included, but IMO it does need a rewrite first. Andrewa 14:14, 11 May 2004 (UTC)

Reinsert of furniture in new section[edit]

Relating to the above item, I have reinserted the furniture items in one of the previous edits under a new heading called "Bedrooms in North America." Perhaps this can satisfy some of the questions Andrewa had, as I agree that bedrooms vary greatly depending on culture and continent.
Perhaps someone with knowledge of bedrooms in other cultures aside from North America may wish to insert what bedrooms are like in continents such as Europe, Asia, Central and South America, and Africa. [[Briguy52748 21:12, 25 Jun 2005 (UTC)]]

I changed the subhead to cover bedrooms in North America and Europe. There is no significant difference between the two, seen with my eyes. Differences are so minor as to hardly warrant a separate section. Additionally Europe is not so homogenous as USA, so if we talk about European bedrooms, we are talking about minor differences from one country to the next. In the bigger picture, they are not much different than the North American bedroom. Of course, if someone else disagrees and wants to break them apart, go for it! Sfdan 28 June 2005 10:11 (UTC)

The reason for the separate subsctions is because bedrooms (I would guess) are vastly different in Africa and Asia (and even South America) than in Europe and North America. Perhaps someone with that knowledge would know better and be able to insert it. Briguy52748 30 June 2005 17:26 (UTC)

Having just read the article, I'm left very curious about Scandinavian bedding. Apparently it's different, but there's no clue how. Does anybody know?

Regarding difference, I found this guide [1], not sure how good it is and I don't think it explains why it is "significantly different". Sfdan added the information in the first place, so perhaps he can explain it further. -- Woseph 10:31, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Would anyone oppose to this section being named "Bedrooms in western culture", since "Bedrooms in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand" is a bit long-winded, and as mentioned, I don't believe there is any noticable difference between bedrooms in these countries. -- Chuq 03:36, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Sounds resonable to me, as long as there are more similarities than differences. -- Woseph 10:31, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

"Master" bedroom controversy[edit]

Hello. I remember a while back hearing that real-estate agents stopped referring to "master bedroom" ("master bathoom", etc.) because some people found it offensive. Is that true? I'm currently editing the Master-slave (technical) page and there is similar controversy. Ewlyahoocom 07:45, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

I went and added the {{originalresearch}} tag to the article. Yes, I know that the concept of "bedroom" is pretty much common knowledge, but can't we come up with at least one bonafide reference for this concept? --Elonka 03:14, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

What is bedroom then?[edit]

During a dinner I was asked by our American partner how many bedrooms is in my flat... I really was confused, because here (in Slovakia) once there is one family living in a house/flat, there is also one (or none if flat is too small) room we would call bedroom = room where you mainly do sleep and so bed is the most important piece of furniture there, where parents use to sleep and there is a bed for two (and sometimes there is also some other furniture, usually some small table(s), wardrobe etc.). All the other rooms are used for some other purposes. Children usually have some room(s) and there are usually also some beds, but these rooms are basically for playing or just for having a piece of private space for children. It seemed ridiculous for my American partner I do not know what the bedroom is and then we switched to another topic.

So I wanted to get it here - What is the bedroom (in the USA)? I still have no idea.

Is it so that an American house has 3 bedrooms - 3 room only for sleeping, then 2 rooms for playing... etc. ? -- (talk) 15:13, 12 May 2008 (UTC)


Someone has rewritten this page with nonsense about dwarves and forts. Ethereyes 02:26, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Sentence should be removed[edit]

I do not think the sentence in the first paragraph of the article: "About one third of our lives are spent sleeping and most of the time we are asleep, we are sleeping in a bedroom." should be there. What do others think? (talk) 20:28, 31 May 2013 (UTC) I agree — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ben of USA (talkcontribs) 15:21, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
