When thinking about how to decorate your bunkhouse, consider using a traditional theme. Bunkhouse provides a homey, comfortable place to escape from everyday stress. Antique items such as lamps, candle holders and furniture may also be incorporated. Using light shades of paint create an open, airy feeling to the room. The most common colors are those found in nature such as reds, blues, yellows, oranges and greens. Place a variety of area rugs throughout the bunkhouse. Area rugs decorate the appearance of the floor, and emphasize the decor of the bunkhouse.
