This featured 3-bedroom and 2-bath, 1,582 square feet Barndominium in Texas looks very dainty from the outside with a white exterior and light grey roof color. This home is even more picture-perfect with the green colors of trees and grass surrounding the simple home looking sharper against the light paint color of the house. It has a touch of both modern and rustic elements, with its metal walls and touches of wood.
Mineral Wells Barndominium Exterior
White is very appealing because it gives just about anything a clean look. In the case of barndominiums, it adds to the feeling of being warm and homey. The dimension of this home would normally fall under the smaller-sized property, yet the light-colored house exterior makes the house appear bigger.
Light-colored paint may help out with the electricity bill as lighter shades reflect heat which means you may be able to minimize cooling costs. Furthermore, getting your exterior painted with a light color can free you from the hassle of maintenance. Dark-colored exterior paint may look really appealing and a bold choice but we’re looking at some of the drawbacks, too. For one, darker paint fades faster than light colors. Also, while we sometimes opt for darker colors to hide dirt, we may also be exposing surface flaws such as wear and scratches. Being exposed to sunlight, the UV rays may cause the paint to fade and peel off.
Needless to say, wiping off dirt from light-colored paint is preferable to repainting the whole exterior area when dark paint starts to peel off, fade, or get scratched.
Mineral Wells Bardominium Interior
Barndominiums are so appealing because of their rustic ambiance. The brown and grey color combination scheme adds to the rustic look of the Mineral Wells Barndominium. There can be different color combination options that can be used for rustic decor for your home. Nonetheless, this barndo interior looks fab with grey and brown shades dominating the entire home interior.
The brown-stained concrete is a perfect match to the sliding wooden barn doors and kitchen cabinets. The dark floor contrasts the light color of the walls and ceiling, making the room still look bright and airy. The mosaic stonework of the fireplace also creates an impression of old-world charm.
There’s this famous phrase most of us know so well that goes ‘you can never have enough storage (at home)’. This kitchen is certainly packed with storage. And just like in every corner of this Mineral Wells Barndominium, the wood gives a touch of old-fashioned against the modern black-and-white look of the kitchen.
The master bedroom has its own bath and a much bigger closet than the rest of the rooms. It looks spacious and very bright with lots of natural light coming in from the windows. It is immediately to the right when facing the main entrance door from inside.
The next bedroom is opposite the master bedroom, also just right next to the entrance door. The third is near the kitchen, going through the arched hallway.
The bathrooms are located near the living room in the arched hallway and the bigger one is in the master bedroom.
There are even more storage areas in the laundry room. It is a very good idea to pack lots of storage spaces. In the long run, the longer the family occupies their home, they accumulate more stuff so having lots of areas for storage is an advantage. While the Mineral Wells Barndominium owners made sure to put lots of cabinets, these also take up space. Here are more storage ideas for your home that can be very creative and multi-functional as decor. Next to cabinets, shelves work as great storage ideas and could work as decorating space as well.
Space can be managed with proper planning and layout. This Mineral Wells Barndominium may not have the most square footage but they certainly made it work for 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, including the rest of the necessities.
