Pole barns are beautiful structures, especially when designed by custom horse barn builders in Missouri. Fortunately, there are many features and characteristics of pole barns that make them perform well and look beautiful at the same time. When you’re trying to come up with the design of your new barn, here are some design options for the perfect pole barn.
If you look at any pole barn, you will likely see a cupola on top of the roof. Here at Central Structures, a cupola is quite possibly the most common accessory our customers choose to add. Cupolas are an excellent addition to any pole barn, as they are functional and aesthetic.
No matter how you choose to use your new pole barn, a porch is always a great feature to include in the design. Your porch can either be a lean-to, a wrap-around, or a gabled. Not only do porches add more space in your barn, but you can also utilize it to your liking. Whether you want to use a lean-to porch as an awning for your vehicle or a place to lounge and watch the sunset, porches are a very functional feature.
Deciding on a color for your new pole barn is one of the best parts of the process. There are very few rules to abide by when it comes to color! Want a bright red barn that stands out from miles away? Want something more modern, such as white and neutral colors? Anything goes when it comes to color!
If you’ve read our blogs before, then you know we are major advocates of adding wainscot on a pole building in Missouri. While it does add quite a bit of pizzazz to any barn, it is also very functional! It adds an extra layer of protection to the bottom section of a barn and is relatively easy to replace. Check out our other blog about the benefits of wainscot.
Dormers can make any pole building in Missouri go from a simple “wow” to “WOW!”. If you want to make your barn look more residential and modern, we highly suggest adding dormer windows. They also add extra light and space to the barn that many people enjoy.
