There’s no single legal definition for a bedroom in Texas. Texas is a home rule state. Building code adoption takes place at the local level. However, Texas’ municipal building, residential, fire, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas and swimming pool and spa codes are promulgated through legislation and found in state statute. which currently states “the International Residential Code, as it existed on May 1, 2012, https://codes.iccsafe.org/content/IBC2012P13 is adopted as a municipal residential building code in this state”. https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/LG/htm/LG.214.htm#214.212 .
This establishes a set of residential building standards for public safety and welfare that include requirements for what can be considered a bedroom. Amendments to the IRC adopted by local Texas jurisdictions may add to those requirements.
