Barn Conversion Ideas

Converting Barns Into A Living Space

Having a barn on your property may be used for farming purposes, however if it is not being utilized for those purposes, there may be a new way to consider the space.  Envision your barn as living space. Unused barns have vast opportunities to be re-purposed.  Converted. Expanded.  Relocated.  Preserved.  Barn conversion to living space is continually growing in popularity, discover how you can redesign your space.

Barn Conversion Before and After

When considering whether to convert your barn into a living space, there are some concepts to consider:

  • Barn to home. Modern or classic.  From rustic appeal to elaborate mansion, the barn to home conversion is a blank canvas for your future home.
  • Barn to venue. A new twist on barn conversions, the barn to venue site offers endless options for soirees.  Otherwise known as a party barn, it can be divided into different rooms including kitchens, music and dance, formal and informal dining and rooms for more intimate gatherings.  Weddings are often held at party barns, as the open space allows for appropriate guest flow.
  • Barn to apartments. Making a barn into two or more apartments is a fresh way to utilize space.  Often used for in-law suites, bed and breakfasts, or vacation rentals, this concept is steadily growing.  Found near areas that include fishing, hiking, and horseback riding, barn apartments offer a fresh take on where to stay.

Barn Conversion Interiors

The interior of your barn conversion can include anything you envision, and let your favorite hobbies and activities lead the way!  Take your love of sports and recreation to the next level.  While indoor pools and tennis courts are popular to include, why not consider having your barn conversion include a golf simulating area or a partial basketball shooting area and billiards? And let’s not forget about a luxurious home office, media room for movies and gaming and an inviting cocktail area complete with bar and cozy seating.  Prefer to keep it outside? Why not turn that barn into a beautiful garage with an outdoor basketball/tennis court?  Remember that barn conversions can be anything you want them to be- with a little something for everyone!
