No heating/cooling vent in upstairs room

I just bought an older house. There are 3 bedrooms a bathroom and a smaller room upstairs. We would like to use the smaller room as a fourth bedroom. But we just realized there is no vent in it. So it gets really hot in there, and I'm assuming cold in the winter. Is there anyway we can add a vent ourselves? Possibley run one from the room next to it. It's next to the bathroom and we have to tear up the bathroom floor to do some plumbing repairs anyways. could we run a vent through the floor to the room that doesn't have one?

If the vent is in the floor you will have to run duct all the way down to basement (or where the main duct is). If it is in the ceiling you could run a duct to main line in atick. You can't steal air from another room.

Ditto, Airman.

Might also think of adding a small return for that room while your adding a supply.
