My bunny is 4 months old and is neutered.

He knows what a litter box is and when it is in his cage he only poops and wees there, but now I have moved house and he is just in my room, as there is not enough space for his cage. (There are no wires or anything he can destroy!) But now he just uses my bed as a giant litter box! I have put a shower curtain on top of my bed so when he does wee it doesnt soak through or anything but how to I get him to know that his litter box is still his box when hes in my room?? Please help!!

How long ago was he neutered and how long has it been since you moved house ?

Has he never had a cage in the new house? If not, in his mind his territory is everywhere now. With such a drastic location change, a cage or pen of some type is necessary to enforce where he is supposed to be doing his business. Only then, after a few months of good behavior and litter habits, should free range be attempted. I also don't think it's a good idea to have a rabbit free range 24/7 under one year old. Can you set up a small pen for at night and when you're not around?

He was neutered about 2 weeks ago, and he has been to the new house before, but that was 2 months ago. I can corner off a small section for him, would this be best? If i do corner an area, should he just sleep here until he learns where his box is?
Sorry, first time bunny owner here

I think it`s easier for a bunny to understand about litter training if they have a smaller area.

I agree with LittlePuffyTail. I moved a lot with my first buns for my career, so my bun's surroundings were always changing. After the first initial moves, I learned that she needed to be confined to a small space for a while to learn her litterbox habits again. When I let her free, I only opened up small areas, then moved on to bigger ones. That worked for us.
