Can somebody explain the difference between a bedroom and a “den”?

“My SO and I are renting a 1BR+Den apartment. We’re not planning on moving or taking on new roommates, we’re just curious how 1BR+Den apartments compare to 2BR apartments. Does anybody know? Are there legal/safety code reasons why my landlord is calling that second room a “den” and not a bedroom? It has its own walk-in closet, two windows, wood flooring (the bedroom has carpet), a 1/2 bath, and french doors that shut it in from the living room. Any thoughts?”
