My husband and I don’t have kids yet. I have no reason, whatsoever, to be dreaming of a fun bunk room for kids and their future sleepovers. Nonetheless, I still collect pics of what this “pretend” room might look like in the future.
I adore this coastal bunk room but I don’t live on the coast (I’m 30 miles inland). The soft blue bead board with the stark white and ship-like rails make me heart swoon. Maybe one day, my clients on the coast will need a bunk room for their grand kids.
The unconventional nature of this small bunk room is refreshing. The long sweeping curtain that can be pulled across for privacy and the practical staircase up to the top bunk make this a clever alternative to basic bunk beds.
I would change a lot of aspects of this room if it were my design. Number one, the colors? Something about tan on tan on tan does not scream kid friendly to me. And though the swinging arm lamps are a nice touch, they are way too big for the space which will cause the kids to hit their heads on them more often than not. The positive side? It’s a great space saver and the individual book compartments make me smile.
Saving the best for last. A warm, inviting play room/ bunk space that sleeps eight. I’m so in love with the bunks being numbered and having pillows embroidered with activities. Though I may never need a room that sleeps 8, I may still have to duplicate a large chunk of this room. After all, it looks to be about a 12 x 14 space which isn’t bad considering how much bang you would get for your buck. Plus, by adding storage under the bottom bunks, you could guarantee every bunkee a drawer!
