Cabins have moved well beyond the frontiersman days and have increased in popularity. With so many of us enjoying outdoor time in beautiful, wild, and peaceful places. With the expansion of #cabinlife beyond hunting season’s spartan accommodations where everyone uses the same spoon for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Likewise, the cabin bedroom doesn’t simply have to be where you plop a sleeping bag and travel pillow on a springy mattress and call it a day. Consider this post a personal mood board for a cabin bedroom based on your type! Whether you have a Lazy Lodge, Family Funhouse, or Sweet Escape, never overlook your cabin bedroom again! Share what kind of cabin bedroom matches your aesthetic! Scroll now to get your creative juices flowing.
Type One – The Lazy Lodge Cabin Bedroom
I lean into the functionality of any space before I commit to decorating it and some cabins are built for comfort first, hunting second. That’s where the Lazy Lodge cabin bedroom comes from. If your cabin has beautiful exposed wooden beams, lays nestled on some excellent acreage and a stream with trout, or sings, “Boots are drying by the fireplace while I am snuggled with my hot cocoa and a paperback.” The Lazy Lodge cabin bedroom is the way to go!
I like going in two directions for this one. Of course, we love good flannel here, so why not emphasize that with a fleece throw or comforter? Lean into your hunting launchpad while still adding unique textures with those splashes of color.
If flannel isn’t your thing or simply too overdone for your liking, the second color option of a Green Beyond the Pines may be more suitable for your cabin bedroom. There is something so calming about rich greens and forest vibes outside your window and where you open your eyes. Try adding accents like these curtains or extra pillow covers to maximize comfort.
DIY to Make It Your Own – Install Floating Shelves
I’m a BIG fan of the floating bookshelf, and this craft project is a perfect way to elevate your bedroom space! I love it for the lodge cabin bedroom vibe because you can treat wood natural to your area and install it after picking your shelves’ design and function. I tend to pack mine with books and photos. Feel free to mix in candles or antler art! Check out this DIY site for more inspo on reclaimed wood shelves.
Type Two – Family Funhouse Cabin Bedroom
The Family Funhouse is a space you expect to be overstuffed with people and bursting with sound and chaos. So, how do you enjoy a cabin bedroom under these circumstances? Below, you’ll find some of my ideas for making bunkin’ bedrooms perfect for your kiddos. Bunk Up, Buttercup When I was a kid, we had sturdy metal bunk beds that had the flair of being painted red, but I want you to think bigger than that!
There are so many fantastic bunk bed options to make this vacation space truly exciting for your little ones. If you don’t mind the expense, this inner treehouse twin over the full mattress is sure to inspire play!
Pro-Tip: Hang fairy lights inside the clubhouse section to create a unique reading spot! Try this triple bunk bed if you are regularly tripping over children. The best part → is that these bunk beds stay good and are the most efficient way to keep your cabin social and fun!
DIY to Make It Your Own – Branch Art
Whether it is a classic and easy camp branch picture frame of time at the cabin or making a pine cone wall from what you collect outside (plus more excellent ideas for branches at this site), what makes the family cabin bedroom special is it a space that the kids can claim, too! Encourage their creative side and make this a place to preserve your cherished family memories. It’ll also inspire them with the wonders of nature before cashing in your excellent parent bonus points.
BONUS IDEA: Make a crate wall to store your kid’s toys! The best part is that when they grow up, you can swipe out stuffed animals with books or even use it as a kind of open dresser when your guests unpack to stay.
Type Three – Sweet Escape Cabin Bedroom
This is for the cabin bedroom that is your sacred she-shed spot. Create a serene spa vibe by mixing the luxury of amazing fabrics and natural elements. Here’s how!
Take your quilt and tapestry obsession to your home without making it “grandma.” Like with this wall hanging that has a touch of whimsy thanks to the fairy lights. I love how it softens the room while also adding that extra layer of peace and serenity that excites you to wake up and get out to greet the day. Whether with a bohemian quilt style that is monochromatic or bursting with color, don’t skimp on your sheets! Go with a high Egyptian cotton thread count to treat yourself like a goddess.
DIY to Make it Your Own – Let’s Get Botanical!
I have one word for you: lavender. There’s a reason everything from spas to bed and breakfasts employs this natural de-stressor into the decor. Scent, texture, and visual pleasure all from one natural component? Yes, please! Try putting dried lavender bouquets in mason jars with a lovely twine bow like this Etsy seller, or make your own lavender candles. But don’t start there! Get botanical with succulents, which especially works if your cabin is out west. Whatever your botanical vision is, think about where you are to help ground you to the amazing nature you get to experience when you walk out the door.
That’s all for today! Get snug in your cabin bedroom in the right way for you. However, you get cozy, keep your unique retreat perfectly special and perfectly you. See you next time at the cabin!
