Bunk rooms play a large role in mountain design because they provide a variety of functions. They can be a room for a number of kids to hang out or a perfect spot for overflow guests. We typically try to have at least one set of extra long twin beds or bunk beds to make them comfortable for an adult. The high ceilings in the homes we work on give us the ability to increase the space between the lower and upper bunk to give more head room for an adult. Bunk rooms can be more colorful and playful than the other rooms of the house and can be a little bit more “themed” without feeling hokey. Today we thought we’d share some rustic Western bunk rooms for design inspiration and ideas for Colorado mountain homes. Take a look…
The first three bunk rooms are from our own portfolio.
In the room below, we designed the bunk beds to be built into the wall as a great space-saving option and gave it a mountain feel with the logs, the brindle hide rug and the wonderful Karen Kreek Adirondack painted dresser. The black bear lamp offers a playful touch.
Here is another bunk room from the designers at Home on the Range. This space in a Lake Catamount house is designed not only for sleeping but with a desk area and a fun game table and chairs. It makes a great get-away room for either kids or adults. The Old Hickory beds work beautifully in a mountain home and the stars add a fun accent to the walls.
In the bunk room below which was over a “barn” in a Western Homestead Ranch home, we used twin beds and a trundle bed instead of bunk beds. We kept a fun cowboy western motif in the bedding and kept it very “kid” oriented.
