These stylish bunkrooms are perfect for hosting guests young and old. One of the pleasures of having a coastal home is that there are always family and friends happily ready to accept an invitation for a weekend stay.
It’s all about family at this Cape Cod home so Greg Siroonian of Rescom Architectural designed a bunk room with custom built-in trundle beds and lounge areas to host grandkids. The room has rich wood paneling and portholes reminiscent of a ship.
Here mahogany trimmed “portholes” allow kids to peek from one bunk to another. The space is maximized with four bunks with plenty of storage beneath. Double beds below and twins on top mean this room can comfortably sleep six.
Not all bunks have to be confined to bedrooms. Here a queen size daybed serves as a cozy spot for reading or catching an afternoon nap. It is also sleeps overflow guests in a pinch.
A family-retreat on Nantucket sports the requisite bunkroom. Panels beneath beds pull out to reveal handy trundle beds for sleepovers. Built in shelves can hold beach-combing treasures and books.
Linda Banks selected a faux wallcovering for the bunkroom of a Maine get-away so kids feel as if they are sleeping in a cozy cabin. A built-in blackboard is used for games and other fun.
