There are so many excellent little details in this home and it’s a great example of “less is more.” We can’t wait to show you everything this barndominium has to offer.
Check Out This Amazing Tennessee Barndominium!
One important consideration when building a barndominium is how it will look on the landscape. This Tennessee barndominium is a great example of how you can use the outdoors. The way this home sits in a traditional farmhouse-type fashion is absolutely stunning. The symmetrical window array and excellent front porch are adorable.
Speaking of the front porch, just look at that entryway. The natural wood pillars sit so nicely on the front of this Tennessee barndominium and give it a great energy. The relatively complex design contrasts nicely with the rest of the exterior. In this way, it is a wonderful accent piece that really draws the eye and makes the whole thing come together.
We also love that the shutters on the front porch match the natural wood of the awning. This is an example of how important it is to use little details. They can be a great way to reference other parts of the home and tie everything together. We think this is done beautifully with this Tennessee barndominium.
While the outside of this Tennessee barndominium is absolutely gorgeous, the inside is perfect. We love the polished cement floors and the large area rug. Rugs like this one are a great way to warm up certain parts of the home if you want to use organic materials. Cement is a great flooring but adding the rug makes it more comfortable.
We also love the stone fireplace in the living area. Because it is painted white, it matches everything else in the home and is low-profile. This is a great way to have a subtle nod to the farmhouse style without sacrificing the contemporary look. This whole living area is incredibly well-designed and stunning.
The kitchen in this Tennessee barndominium is about as modern as it gets. However, it doesn’t lose any of its country charm and we love that.
The color of the cabinets matches the front door and is a great example of referencing other areas. We also love the natural wood breakfast bar and countertops that are similar to the porch.
The kitchen also features a walk-in pantry with more natural wood trim on the door. This is a great way to keep your food stored out of sight but still have enough room for everything. The kitchen has an interesting layout and has a second counter space far away from the breakfast bar. We love this and think it’s a great way to add another workspace so multiple people can cook.
The bedrooms in this Tennessee barndominium are charming just like the rest of it. The cement floors continue but they have more of those beautiful area rugs. These not only add some coziness, but they also are an opportunity to add another style element. Rugs come in all shapes and colors so you have a lot of options if you decide you want to use them.
One of the things we noticed about this home that we love is the use of color. There are many interesting colors at play in this Tennessee barndominium but they don’t distract the eye.
Many of them are in muted tones and are subtle enough to be tasteful. This is the secret to working with color without making everything too bold or exhausting to the eye.
This Tennessee barndominium also has a kids’ playroom, which we think is a great idea.
The designers of this barndo have clearly thought out every aspect of their storage. By allowing the kids to have their own space, they don’t have to worry about toys cluttering the home. This is the same principle used with the walk-in pantry and we adore it.
The bathrooms in this barndo are some of the most interesting and beautifully designed spaces. While the cement floors continue into the bathrooms, they don’t feel cold or uninviting.
The muted tones of the walls and the soft lighting make everything feel incredibly warm. We think this is a great way to continue your design aesthetic without sacrificing the feel.
This Tennessee barndominium is incredibly functional and so welcoming. We love everything about it and think it is a great example of simple, beautiful interior design. The layout and the materials used to bring everything together and create a home that is cohesive. We think this is a wonderful home that will bring everyone a lot of joy for many years.
