Whether your new pole building is strictly a functional storage space or a barndominium where you’ll spend the majority of your time, there’s no question that it can add some serious aesthetic appeal to your property.
To help you design a pole building that fits with your personal style and vision, we’ve outlined new pole barn design trends for 2022. Now, we’ll take a closer look at some of those trends.
One seemingly-small addition you can make to your building that seriously boosts curb appeal is including windows in the step down.
Here’s everything you need to know about this 2022 trend.
What are windows in the step down?
Some pole buildings will feature two different levels of roofline. This happens because a lean-to has been added to a traditional gable building, or because it is a monitor-style pole barn.
Either way, this variation in the roof creates a space on the side of the building known as the step down. One way to use that space is to add windows as opposed to leaving it blank.
What are the benefits of windows in the step down?
Adding windows to this often-forgotten space on your new pole building can have a bigger impact than you might imagine.
One benefit of windows in the step down is increased natural light. This is particularly important if you plan to spend a significant amount of time in your building.
Beyond that, including windows here simply adds a unique design aesthetic that will help your building stand out from others.
If you have a distinct style and you enjoy staying ahead of trends, then windows in the step down are an excellent, understated option for you.
