query over the bed, press r to make the bedroom, size it with alt+up/down, then optionally assign the room to a dwarf, make it a dormitory, or name the bed.

It's not always alt+up/down. For me it's + or -. – C. Ross Jul 10 '10 at 14:19
The instructions are, of course, dependent on the version; i gave what works for default; but i assume the user knows enough to know when he has non-default keybinds. – RCIX Jul 10 '10 at 21:08
