Rustic Western Bunk Rooms

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.

The bunk room above and the bunk room below we found on Houzz and felt they were great examples of western bunk room design. Take a look at the way the reclaimed wood vanity was incorporated into the bunk room above by Locati Architects and below, the bunk room from Design Associates maximizes their space with four built in bunks on one side and a “lit clos” or single built-in bed on the right.  Having the beds built into the side walls of the room allows space for seating in the center of the room.

Love the bedding in the Lake Catamount bunkroom. Where is it from? I have a bunk room with 4 queen sized bunks to decorate. Thanks for your help.

    Hi Jennifer! The bedding is from Wooded River- if you are interested in it, we would be happy to send you pricing on it! We can order it for you and ship it to you. All we will need from you would be the sizes you are looking for, and whether you would want pillows with the bedding!
