Remember the pool house renovation? We started it last winter and I revealed the bunk room bedding, the mudroom, snack bar, and bathroom. I never actually got around to giving you the grand tour of the bunk room now that we have the furniture in! So let’s do it!
This space has been so fun for our family, especially now that we actually have a place to sit and hang out.
I went around in circles when trying to find a sofa for this space that I could actually be delivered on time. I wanted something in a durable fabric to withstand wet bathing suits and snacks. I ended up buying this Basset sofa from a local store in a performance fabric.
So far it’s holding up well, and is a comfy spot to take a break from the pool.
I decided to forgo a coffee table since it tends to get a little crazy up here with a bunch of kids. These giant jute ottomans were a much safer choice. They are great to prop your feet on or serve as extra seats for video gaming friends.
The goal was to create a flexible space up here for overnight guests, grabbing a snack, playing board games, or just hanging out. I’m happy to report that it’s been working great for all of those activities!
Let’s take a look at the space BEFORE –
And the same view now AFTER –
We decided to remove the center window to make room for a tv up here. I’m so glad we did because it’s been a fun spot for movie nights.
We added a mini-split heating and cooling system in the bunk room so we can use it year round. There is also another unit downstairs in the pool house bathroom. It’s not the most beautiful thing but it does the job.
This cabinet stores extra blankets and board games.
Behind the sofa I added a small sofa table and ottoman bench. It serves as a place to sit and play foosball. The kids also use it to sit at the table with a snack. Again, all about flexible seating, it’s easy to move around the room to use where it’s needed.
The foosball table has been a fun addition up here. It may look a little cramped, but there is plenty of space. This room is hard to show in photographs (honestly it’s why I waited so long to share this space) – it’s so hard to shoot. It spans about the length of a 3 car garage, so it is more spacious than it appears.
After dreaming about this space since we bought the property 6 years ago, it’s been so fun to finally enjoy the finished product.
I’m so ready to enjoy this bunk room with our family and friends this summer!
