nautical theme bunk room for four

Bunk rooms are the perfect guest accommodation solution for kids’ sleepovers or vacation and holiday visitors. Multi-bed rooms can easily house a group of best friends, an entire family, or a room full of cousins. If you live near the coast, it’s an ideal place to create a unique nautical bunk room.

It’s easy to create a maritime feel with just a few special additions to the bunk room décor…..and remember, when working with a theme, not every item in the room has to scream “theme”! (See Kids’ Bedrooms: To Theme or Not to Theme? for tips on how to use a theme.)

Noticeable and most commonly used nautical motifs are accessories like anchors, ship’s wheels, lanterns, and ropes, which can quickly transform a plain room into captain’s quarters. If you want a more subtle yet permanent approach, follow the lead given in the rooms below.

Plank walls painted ocean blue, caged bulkhead sconces, and wood gunwale trim around the bunks or “berth” say maritime without anchors or ropes.

Bead board walls and wood plank floors can be used in many different themed designs but add the oars, rope drawer handles, and curved bed side panels and it says nautical.

Navy blue bunks with bold red and white striped bedding go nautical with pillows shaped like life rings and compass designed fabric.

Captain’s beds with storage underneath, soft blues mimicking the ocean, and a few nautical accessories make this room with wood plank floor, walls, and ceiling a maritime retreat for a large group.

Wood paneled walls plus a few simple nautical fabrics….anchor on the pillow, sails on the ottoman….create a nautical inspired design.

Even if you don’t live near the coast but just love the water, a nautical designed bunk room will be a retreat visitors enjoy.
