    Is my house 2 or 3 bedroom 10th Oct 16 at 8:38 PM
    I have moved my tiny downstairs bathroom upstairs into the box room, and believe me the original bathroom was only 6ft by 5ft so its now 'huge'.

    On renewing building insurance is it still a 3 bedroom house or does it class as 2 bedrooms?

    Any guidance please

    Why not ask the insurer? Not trying to be awkward but strangers opinions on the internet are not going to be much help if the insurer thinks differently.

    The insurer will most likely define what they consider a bedroom as. Most definitions are something along the lines of: "a room designed for sleeping in even if it is now used for other purposes".

    However, I presume the plumbing is pretty permanent, and assuming you'd sell it as a 2 bed, I'd be comfortable arguing it's a 2 bed.

    It's not a bedroom if it is a bathroom. :-)

    I will ring my present insurer as suggested but I was going to do comparisons to see who is cheapest.
