Nighttime Shema in a different room

Q: Is it permissible to say the Nighttime Shema in one room and sleep in another room?
A: Yes, there is no problem of an interruption, unlike a blessing over benefiting from the world (Birchot Nehenin). For example, if I recite the blessing over an apple, I have to eat the apple right away and not walk around. But this is a blessing of praise, which does not require the same alacrity.
