Learn tips for re-creating the look in your own home from the pros behind the designs.Cozy and RusticDesigner: Lisa Yates of Collective Design GroupBuilder: Chad Rowe of Pinnacle Mountain HomesLocation: Breckenridge, ColoradoSize: 230 square feet (21 square meters)Homeowners' request. Designer Lisa Yates collaborated with the homeowners using Houzz photos for inspiration. The bunk room features two queen beds, each with an extra-long twin above and dedicated luggage storage space beneath. The stairs, which are made of walnut, double as additional open storage.

Designer tip. "Always try to maximize open space," Yates says. "Consider alternate layout options, like how the queens face into the room and the twins are oriented foot-to-foot."Coastal Crash PadArchitect: Michael H. Masilotti ArchitectsDesigner: Nate Fischer InteriorsContractor: Oligino Laux ConstructionLocation: Dana Point, CaliforniaSize: 220 square feet (20 square meters). This bunk room is a guest room in the homeowners' recently built primary residence. Designer Nate Fischer used Houzz Pro Mood Boards to play with different bunk bed configurations.

Fischer minimized color and contrast to create a clean and airy feel, using a cool paint color and woven window shades to add texture and soften the woodwork. He also installed reading scones with decorative brass switches and ship portholes along the stairs to add a nautical element. Designer tip: Leave extra space around the mattress to tuck bedding in. This bunk room was designed by Maria Crosby Pollard of Crosby Designs and Andy Mishmash of AM2 Construction for a Victorian-style vacation home in Aspen, Colorado. It was designed to maximize sleeping and storage in a newly captured basement area and appeal to a range of ages and not feel gender-specific.

Each bunk has an individual reading light and a small upholstered headboard, and bottom bunks have storage drawers underneath. The bunk room was part of a remodel of the 19th century home led by project architect Ryan Lee of Forum Phi.
