    Bunk Room Ideas

    What is a bunkroom? It's a room providing usually temporary sleeping quarters. Maybe a summer home, grandma's house, basements, attics, etc...  Where to put everyone? The bunk room can be a perfect solution. These bunk rooms have the dormitory feel with the ability to sleep lots of people. Bunk rooms allow for less wasted space - it's about function. Bunk room images.

    Great nautical feel for the bunk room. Nautical bedding.
