Red bunk beds add a pop of color to the kids' room in HGTV Dream Home 2006. Weathered wood paneling and pine floors add to the rustic, bunkhouse feel. A suede armchair and ottoman provide a cozy seating nook.
For older children and even adults, a loft bed is a great way to leave floor space open. It takes advantage of otherwise unused space and makes it possible to add a desk or a seating area in a small room that would have been otherwise overwhelmed by a large bed.
Shiplap walls in crisp white and sisal-style floors in soft tan create a clean, soothing backdrop for this kids' room. Bedding, accent pillows and the window seat cushion add refreshing bursts of color to the space.
Converted attic space now serves as an eclectic loft for kids and guests to relax. Beautiful pine wood floors warm up the all-white space. A bamboo sofa with white seat cushions nestles perfectly against the sloped ceiling.
Designer Susan Fredman creates a colorful space for everyone in the family to enjoy. The media room features a play area for young kids with a chalkboard wall and a pool table so the adults can play too. Ample seating and floor pillows provide a spot for everyone to gather around the tube.
The kid owner of this bedroom gets two cozy reading nooks: one, a built-in window seat (with a drawer for useful storage!) and the other, a plush chair on the floor. A built-in bookshelf keeps favorite tales and toys within easy reach.
Built-ins surround the cozy window seat and provide much-needed storage for a family of five. The cushion is upholstered in a laminated oatmeal fabric in order to combat the muddy shoes and kids' hands. Navy pillows bring in color that's also used throughout the open floor floor plan, and a copper sconce adds light for reading in the evening.
Responsible green features make the playhouse good for the family and the environment. The structure is clad inside and out with rough-sawn spruce boards, which are naturally weather resistant. A blue racer rocker, made of recycled milk bottles, offers fun yet durable seating. In the corner, a kid-height sliding side door guarantees an easy second exit at all times. A ladder leads to the second floor loft area over a large chalkboard providing tons of creative space.
A wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area became a newly found space with the design of this cozy space. By adding a floor, designer Kristina Crestin was able to carve out this little nook. A deep, long window seat with pillows and reading lights is perfect for lounging. Bookcases were built in to the awkward sloped ceiling, creating one of the kids most favorite places.
