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.

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.

Oh, oh. I'm sorry Lintini and Moonlight. I have really failed at making this more clear. I have edited my posts to try and explain this a bit better.

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 that 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. It's sole purpose is housing bunnies though.

The way you set up your bedrooms is absolutely wonderful, I wouldn't consider it a "bunny room" for the gallery.
I'm sorry.

I just bought supplies today to make mine! I bought 50 panels, wooden rods, twists, a bunny bed, some hideouts ect. I cleared the entire spare room out and it has nothin on the floor and one side is all windows! Carpeting is short weave: only room like that. My condo will be 4 cubes wide, 4 tall and 2 deep. Also....surprise! I have this big cage w/ litterboxes and a bottom so I can attach it and make it a litter room and he will have 6 cubes wide on the bottom to run! Omg so much funnnnnn

This is my bunny room.  I have an xpen and a NIC grid wall all the way around the inside to protect the baseboard.  The buns did have access to the loveseat, but sadly Kiwi isn't 100% on his litterbox, so they aren't supposed to get on the loveseat.  In these pics Tansy was mad that his boxes were moved and he wanted them back!!  So he decided to go get them.

The NIC grid is usually up all around the loveseat, but he pulled it down.

They LOVE the crinkle tunnel.

cactuspancake:  The tubes (beige w/maroon trim) we got at WalMart for $8 or so & the hard cardboard ones for even less at Home Depot (I think - Ken got them).  Boxes from Costco work great; especially the vegetable ones 'cause they have double thicknesses in some places so they are pretty sturdy.  Just make sure you have a sharp exacto knife to cut the holes out!  The stairs are for dogs & the cover is removable so can be washed.  The frame is hardened plastic but I think they are rated to 40 pounds or so.  I can't remember the price on those.  Good luck...my bunz love it!

I'm building my bunny condo! I just finished the third floor last night. I will take some more specific pics of it next time I work on it. Franz has been in the bunny room for a few days now! Also I have the bed I got off of the binkybunny site and he doesn't nibble or potty on it so it's great! He looks cozy in it. Here are some pics of the bunny room. The only thing for humans is this big metal storage cart that bunny can't get in and also a folded uncured wooden drying rack I don't care if he chews on lol.  I put paper on one end of the room cause he's still being potty trained



You can see part of the condo when I first started it:

Midnight, can you tell me what flooring you used in your condo? I kind of like the design of your condo a bit better than what I'm doing. I am planning on using cheap grass mats (peters seagrass) attached with twine through drilled holes in plywood which I am having cut for the levels. I think my dowel rods are too small... They're 1/2" but I an use my 75lb zipties to hold them up. I tested it and it works! Not super solid but I did some stress tests and I think it would ve good for even a Flemish giant. I'm thinking the plywood is not such a good idea anymore because of the peeing thing. I still have time to change my mind! Does coroplast have good traction? I'm mostly worried about traction. My other idea is carpet velcroed on the plywood. Can't decide!

I just got my bunny today and already have a room for it. it is the entire upstairs, you see my house was at one time a barn until remodeled it has a kitchen and living room down stairs and upstairs is the bedroom with a bath and toilet. but I did some baby proofing wks ago and put a gate up at the top of the stairs since my little man is going to be turning 1 next month. So basically all I have to do i put the bunny in and close the gate. I also plan on building a room outside for my bunny as well, I will get pics as soon as I can.

im sooo excited!!! i am moving in june and my buns are going to get a room all to their own and i am going to put a chair and table in there for me, if they are ok with it of course so i can sit with them and read. the room isnt the biggest, 10x12 with very appropriate green walls, and 2 windows as well as a ceiling fan but i think they will love it!!!! right now they are in an x-pen and i am thinking about adopting a bun from the rabbit rescue. i have just fallen inlove with one they have there and well, doesnt hurt to inquire.....right??

the only problem is that the floor is carpet, and atticus is notorious for destroying carpet so i was wondering if anyone has any cost effictive ideas to cover the carpet to protect it and to make the floor easy to clean? i am going to round the room with some x-pens to protect the walls and baseboards and would like to have something that can be folded up the xpen on the inside so their poops that dont make it to the litter box stays in their area and not between the xpen and the baseboards. any at all?

new1bunny, yes please do move the cords out of the way, it can be very dangerous for a bunny to chew an electrical wire. Also, it can cost a lot of money to replace chewed wires.

I am planning on starting my bunny room today! I live in an open studio that is just too big for Emily to roam around while I am at work so I am going to use part of her x-pen to make a large "room" and it will be all hers so I do not have to worry so much about cords and he needing out of her cage at 5am! :/ maybe she will let me sleep a little longer so its a revamp of the house this weekend!

My question what are the main things I should have in my bunny room and how do you keep hay from getting all over we have concrete floors so I need to keep it somewhat clean or it ends up everywhere! I think I will buy rugs to put down that are very low pile. She will still get to run around but only when I am home I think that will help me feel like she is safe while I am at work! You guys are all wonderful and I am so jealous of some of your bunny rooms!

But seriously, I would love to have a bunny room made to order, so to speak.  It would have the perfect hay storage containment system, for starters...  And an employee to clean it up .

Hey Tanlover! Sorry for taking so long to reply to you, The flooring I have is called coroplast, and its actually used to make signs. And to make the cage stable i did criss cross zip ties, like an x every place that I put one. I had chapped hands afterwards but the cage is not sagging at all. I really like the way it all turned out, If you have any more questions i would be more than happy to answer them!

Thanks so much! We actually finally built the condo last night (w/ zip ties) and it seems pretty sturdy but the X thing is an awesome idea so I'm going to do that idea on all of them just for extra security. Yeah -- my hands were definitely chapped after last night and we used a lighter to make the ends of them not sharp and I'm pretty sure I burnt half my fingers off for doing it. Major bunny slave moment right there.

Also, I just realized you're from Pittsford, NY? As in Rochester, NY???!? I went to school in Brockport and until a year ago lived in Rochester!!! I grew up in the Southern Tier though -- near Dansville, a small town called Arkport. That's so interesting to see someone else from that area on here!

Here are pictures of my bunny room - I am not that pleased with it. I think it is a bad compromise of wanting to give the bunnies a stimulating room of their own and wanting a room that looks nice and pleasing to the eye, and that I want to spend time in as well.

Overview of the room

Their houses
I try to make sure that they have fresh twigs each week as well as a cardboard box.

Toilet area

When I had four rabbits living here, at least two of them had a tendency to spray when jumping out of the toilet.
So I put these tiles on the wall to protect the wall from urine. They are from ikea.

Karl - making a mess

Fresh herbs available

I am doing an experiment to see if I can have fresh herbs available all the time. I really want the bunnies
to sense and taste fresh herbs - I think it is important when they cannot be in their natural habitat.

I am trying out to find herbs that can last longer than a few minutes.

And these are the miserable results of my experiment

These are the herbs that tasted too good and couldn't survive on the floor. It doesn't look too good having almost dead plants in the window sill, but hopefully a bit of bunny poop will bring them back to life

Cool, what ideas did you get? I'd love to hear them. I could definitely need some tips on making the bunny room more exciting, so perhaps the inspiration you got might actually make me come up with new ideas for the room.

I liked how you had the fresh herbs and it reminded me of something on pinterest! So I want to do something similar using wheat grass like in this photo. Then when it is ready, let them munch away! Since it is wheat grass and grows very fast they can destroy it and I can just plant more! I think I found a good website at one point for like organic seeds or something.... anyways. You plant one container a day so that by the time one is eaten, then next is ready!



I Like the tile idea because somehow my rabbits get pee and poop 3 feet up on the wall (LOL) and they often pee next to their box. So I was thinking I could maybe do something like that only have maybe 3 walls with tile (make another wall out of wood) and tile the floor. It might be easier to get pee cleaned up then on linoleum. Not completely sure though! Random note, I just got back from Ikea! sorry I kind of just crashed this thread, but I hope you guys will except my apology if I promise to post pictures of my bunny room when its finished! I could post some now I guess... Just not "exactly" how I want it yet.

I really like that idea of yours! I will copy that as well! So cool. I can't wait to see your bunny room.

The tiles I have used from Ikea are in fact just noticeboards http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10114874/

Looks like I need to clean and get at it. I procrastinated showing pics of the buns room because we haven't had time to redecorate since we moved in (awful wallpaper and such) and I don't have all my bunny decor in there but I can just focus on the part that the bunny's care about.

View from outside


Chewing/food corner


They have a wall of litter boxes until they decide they don't need to fight over the walls

And this is as neat as it will ever be while they are living in it. lol

Tanlover, I love how Simba and the Tans are all crowding the veggie dish! What exactly is that feeder? A bird feeder? I'd be interested in something similar for Apollo if I could just get my hands on one! Also, are your litter boxes just cat litter pans? They look like they're high sided, and I could do with that for king bun too!
Slave to minilop Apollo!

They use CareFresh litter, Emmie!

It was a $15 cat try we picked up!! We were looking for bowls since they just toss everything and it's like that with the two bowls inside (you can take them out for easy cleaning) and they hook on. When it's veggie time I just throw it in the thing but it works awesome for pellets and the veggies which they always get everywhere! They never have a mess anymore. And then the water dish is just one of those dog dishes you can fill to the top with water so it replenishes whenever it gets low.

And yupp, cat litter pans also! The Tans have a bad habit of kicking their litter EVERYWHERE so we got these really large sided ones. I think we actually got them from Target. Maybe...They really help keep everything in though!

 I finally have pictures of my bunny room. BB: If these pictures aren't the right size I can e-mail some to you.

When you walk into the door this is what you see. It is a 10x2 "raised cage area" but they can never be closed into it. I had to have these raised cage areas because of a knee problem I have that makes me not be able to bend down easily.



Then this is what you see when you turn around. Pretty much just a mirror closet and a ladder. The ladder goes up into my room. 



In this section of the raised cage is their hay, litter boxes, and water dishes. I have a wire mesh in front of the window to stop them from chewing it. The front NIC wall can un-clip and fold down for easy cleaning.


Underneath I have my rabbit storage with my mini fridge in the middle.



This section has the ramp and memory foam mats with towels on top to help with their soar hocks. This is also where they like to sleep.



Their ramp goes down into a dog crate that holds up the cage area. They can also enter the cage by hopping on the drawer (on the right) and then onto their cage.

 Wow! I really like your bunny house! When I get my bunny I want mine to be kinda like that....is your bunny litterbox trained? If so and you had fleece on the ground you would'nt really have to change it that much, right?

My bunnies are litter trained but I still change it around twice a week because of fur. I have to use tons of fleece because my rabbits have sore hocks.

The bunny rooms are awesome! Some great ideas in there too. Personally though, I prefer having my buns in my room with me. Love it when they come up to hang out with me on the bed! Grem is nosing around me as I speak....er, type. They love smoothing out my sheets for me, such helpful buns.

The tiles for that litter tray is a great idea! I've had to make walls out of cardboard to stop mine peeing up the wall but obviously as it's absorbant I need to make new ones quite often. I need to find a tray that size too! I currently have 3 cat litter trays lined up in a row since they seem to go over quite a large area...

<p>Where did you get those black wire squares or whatever you wanna call them. I have looked everywhere!!</p>

Rabbit and guinea pig owners commonly refer to them as NIC cubes (Neat Idea Cubes as it was branded).
They come under different names though. If you are in the US, you should be able to find them in Bed, Bath and Beyond, Walmart (labelled as Whitmor storage cubes) and Target. Take care with buying the ones at Target as the grid aperture varies. Rabbits can usually fit their heads through the holes if they're 3 inches wide.
You can also buy online. Search under wire storage cubes.

^ Yes, when we bought from Target we could only use half the grids because some of them were too wide.

Will have to get pics but my ruby ( she was with her best bud Brian but he passed two weeks ago) has the little bedroom to herself, well I say to herself, it's got the tortoises in, the lizards and snake in, but they're up in tanks, ands it's company for her as grumpy tort stomps and clonks about... she has her big cage always open with food, hay and water in, where she can go and do her personal lady things. The whole rooms carpeted, and old shelving wood nailed all around to stop her hacking the skirting boards to bits, and to gnaw on and keep her teeth down, she also has a little gate, which she's just taken to shutting herself out and so resulting in flopping fully at the top of the stairs, knowing either me or my hubby will be up shortly to give her a nose and back of the ear rub! Unless she decides to come downstairs and join us in front of the tv. If we get up for a tinkle in the night she rushes to the gate for a cuddle. :-)

Sorry did those pictures turn out weird to anyone? Like going off the post?

.......How did you get my rabbit Charlie? he has the SAME line/dot marking on his back lololol

But anyway. My boys have the whole run of our basement so they are nice and cool in the summer. I move them up to my bedroom during the harsh Minnesota winters. Their habitat includes laptop for Netflix (favorite show is cake boss, they are GLUED to the screen) strawberry bed, doggy bed with a stool on top with a blankie that they LOVE, and some cute cushions and blankets all around the basement for them. They sure can tire themselves out with such a big space lol.

First three are of my room, last few of basement for summer

Due to our buns not getting along at the moment, we cycle our bun room, Navi or Daisy gets it during the day while the other is in the living room, then, around 6pm, we swap them, THEN, over night, Link gets the room...
It's a bit of a mission, but until they're bonded it's our only choice...

But, whenever we get pet food/bun treats/tubes and all sorts of other stuff delivered, the boxes get a hole or two cut in them and then dropped into the room as part of the bun-fort.
It's cheap and easy.

And, although they all spend time inside, munching hay and the likes, we're yet to find any pee, which is fantastic.

Usagi1618, your two look exactly like mine! Except the brown one is only 6 weeks old so half the size. I was so hoping they would end up bonded like your to, and I am so sad it looks like it may not.

No bunny room yet.... but it's my dream! When I move next, I'll make sure there's an extra room for the bunnies to stay while I'm not home

Ooooh retrosquid, that room looks great. Envious of the bunny fort

The recent bonding has been going rather well, so we cleared out the bun room and have gotten rid of the 'fort' for now to make the room a little more open and neutral.

Things are going relatively well, but this is what our bun room currently looks like...
