What Is A Barndominium And 25 Examples
What’s a barndominium, you ask? Barndominiums, nicknamed “barndos,” got their start as a practical living option. Many farmers and ranchers created a loft area above a working barn so that animal caretakers could stay close by.
Today, the popularity of barndominiums has evolved into luxury homes and vacation rentals, especially in upscale rural areas with ranch land and vineyards. Most barndo constructions use a steel shell, which makes the home much more stable and durable.

The metal shell construction is built very quickly, which means that you’ll get a gorgeous new home soon. Metal barndos withstand the elements and have a longer life than most standard home-building materials. The structure of a barndo encourages indoor/outdoor living. Rollup doors, big windows and wrap-around decks can give a feeling of spaciousness to your interior living space. Barndominiums work best as an open concept home, which is extremely popular and loved nowadays.

A barndominium is truly an open concept home, so tips and ideas for an open interior layout definitely work here. When you’re decorating a barndominium or great room in any home, color becomes your easiest and best tool for defining space. Accent walls are still very much in style and can create a focal point in a large open space. And don’t forget, ceilings can be accents walls, too.
If you are furnishing a big, open space, using large furniture, like sectionals and oversized chairs, can fill the space without looking too busy. Grouping furniture together for conversation or eating areas prevents the “furniture store” look from which many open layouts suffer. If you’re grouping furniture within your barndo great room, stick with one color palette across all the areas you’re furnishing. That way, your colors tie everything together.
