I just created a section in the Habitat Gallery http://bit.ly/ciMnu7 called Bunny Rooms.   So for those of you that do have bunny rooms you can now get some bunny room bragging rights by  emailing your photos to info@binkybunny.com or  post them here on this thread, and  I'll grab them from here and put them in the gallery. . Keep the photo size, if possible, anywhere from  500 x 500 up to 700 x 700 would be best.

And for clarification, this is a bunny room where there is no other source of caging, correct? They have complete access to the entire room all the time?

That is so great! I just took a look at it, and I am so inspired by your bunny room, BB. I am most definitely going to copy some of it.

I will e-mail some pictures of mine. I just need to finish the room, but it should be this week, I think.

Oh, right Beka, I can see where this could be confusing

In order for it to be considered a "Bunny Room"  for our gallery --- The sole purpose of the room is for the bunnies. There can be a  "hide-out" or "home-base" for them within the room which can be a cage but the room itself is made FOR the bunny..  This is not to  say that a bunny can't have freedom to explore the rest of the house either, its just that instead of a pen or cage, a room is dedicated your bunny. 

 So just to be  more clear:   This is NOT a room created  for a human that a bunny can hang out in 24/7. (otherwise that could be bedrooms, living rooms, offices)    It is a room created FOR the bunny.   A human can hang out in if she/he wants to. (like I have a couch and a side table in the bunny room) so I can go in there in and read or do some work, but again it's sole purpose is housing bunnies

I have two rabbit rooms at the moment. I'll send in a bunch of pictures of my main, human-friendly one once my bunnies are bonded. More motivation to get them bonded, eh?

Oh...Karla, I missed your post for some reason. I LOVE your bunny room (saw in your other post) -- looking forward to getting the photos. Since we are both all over IKEA , you must recognize that my bunny room is filled with IKEA --- the futon, the lamp, the side tables, the frames and photos of greens, the storage units, the mini fridge table and even the shop vac hose holders (not in the photos) are IKEA toilet paper roll holders. : P

The only downside of a bunny room is stubborn bunnies choose their litterbox spot and sometimes it's not the prettiest place.  I have tried over  and over to get the boxes hidden back underneath the side table in the back in the corner, and it worked for a little bit, but Jack can be so bossy over the boxes and Vivian doesn't like feeling trapped. She also would escape his annoying behavior by going under the couch and peeing there.  So I had to make some adjustments -- We made a flexible easy-to-remove piece of coroplast to block underneath the couch, and then I brought the litterboxes to a corner, but more out in the open. I even had to put up a little privacy wicker wall between two boxes (as seen in my bunny room photos) so that Jack would not see Vivian using a box without his permission.

He's been such a good boy with her lately but I don't feel like disrupting the peaceful vibes by moving things around to what just suits me..

here is Jennys main area, though she has access to the whole basement. she does have a pen,but its only locked overnight, otherwise she torments my dogs lol oh and exuse the grundgy carpet, thats my previous rabbits damage lol

sorry my room is at on odd angle, its impossable to get the whole thing in one shot lol








the crate is just left open for her for her to play in and on, the little drawer contains her treats and stuff, the 2 cubes are set up for her, the wooden shelf, the bottom 2 shelves are made up into a play thing, and of coarse the playhouse I built for her. you can see the edge of Jennys pen in the one pic.. she was napping when I walked in to grab some pics, hence the look lol. hopefully this will one day be Jenny and Peepers area.

Wonderful! Keep 'em comin'!

Thanks lwayne and jennyrabbit!  Is there anyway to make those a little bigger or did forum force a resize? 

jenny, do have a photo that shows the other side too?   I can only see a bunny cube area just slightly.    Are you able to take a photo of that too?  I will then group them together so it will be understood that they are of the same room.

there you go, the pen area.

how big do you want them? I have them at 500 pixels right now, which is just my standard uploading size, I can make them bigger.

These are nice! I don't have neat and tidy photos of my room with Bee and Indy. Every photo has turds in it or red eye. I was trying to use a red eye remover and it's not working.

Indy and Bee have full free range of my bedroom and are never locked up.

Ikea is the way to go  What about this one here:

Is this something from Ikea that you have customised?

I would really like something like that! It is brilliant. So please let me know where you got it form or how you made it.

Our apartment has just been sold, which means we are moving out next month, so I won't finish the bunny room this time. But once we are settled in a new place, I will send you the pictures, so you have more photos in the gallery.

LOL, you gotta love them for having personalities  Although I am sure it hasn't been easy always with such strong personalities in the house, it does sound really funny.

Thanks everyone! I'll let you know if I need them larger once I grab them and put them in.

Karla-- Oh, I forgot, that wooden box below the window lounge area is from IKEA (from many years ago). It was a just a plain wooden toy box--- think it was in the kids section. And we cut in the entrance(there is also an opening on the the other side.) We just cut the bottom out (as it we used to use it as a litterbox station. The wooden box used to have legs it sat up off the ground-- perfect for a litterbox. Anyway, we ended cutting off the box legs, took out the litterbox and now it is Jack and Vivian's sleeping area/hidey box.

The window lounge area above the box: My husband built that with supplies from home depot. The part that covers over the lounge is just coroplast and we cut a little window in that as well, so they could hide out yet see out still. I covered it with a cloth because it's white and it's still too bright for the bunnies to hide out in without the cloth. My husband also made a ramp-- we bought material that has alot of traction (sort of like front door mat material) and cut that to fit the ramp and the landing area.

AHH I know they do take up the page, I thought it just was my computer going funky. I guess I'll remove them now.


EDIT: There I removed most of them so it does not go off the screen anymore. EDIT#2: Why is my screen giant now, with lots of blank space!!!??? Something is wrong here. Sorry guys.
