Top 7 Pole Barn Design Trends to Consider for Your 2022 Build
With more than 25 years of construction experience, Beehive Buildings has kept our finger on the pulse of architectural trends for decades. Here’s what our design and build experts predict will take center stage for pole buildings in 2022:
Black & White Colors
While some design experts are torn between predicting color and pattern or minimalist colors for 2022 home design, our team tends to lean toward the minimalist end of the debate — specifically black and white color schemes. Not only does a black-and-white color palette remain evergreen in aesthetic appeal, but the opportunities to customize through decoration are virtually endless. Able to complement any color or pattern, black and white pole barns offer a blank slate for you to put your creativity on display. Consider opting for white Hardie board exterior siding with black exterior window frames and a black metal roof to keep your pole barn build on-trend this year.
Pole Barn Eyebrows
Another pole building trend we’re likely to see in 2022 is the inclusion of pole barn eyebrows. These stylish overhangs add extra aesthetic appeal as well as slight protection from snow falling right in front of the garage door. Especially if you plan on using the building as a barndominium, adding pole barn eyebrows to the design of your build can be a great way to improve its curb appeal.
Flying Gables/Bird Peaks
A flying gable roof is one where the ridge overhand extends further than the eave overhang, creating a point at the end of the ridge. These types of gables (also referred to as prow gable roofs or bird peaks) create a cottage-like charm for your pole building. Being that comfort and coziness will be a top design trend in 2022, we think flying gables will see a gain in popularity as clients aim to create an inviting escape on their properties.
Pole Barn Overhangs
As more people embrace the barndominium lifestyle, one way they hope to make their dwellings appear more complete is by adding pole barn overhangs. Increasing the overhang adds to the building’s visual appeal, giving it the appearance of a traditional home without the associated costs of custom home building.
Windows in the Step Down
Adding windows in the step down between the main roof and lean-to roof on a pole barn with a lean-to is a popular way to maximize natural lighting. Not only that, but placing the windows here adds unique aesthetic appeal.
Pole Barn Bump Outs
Another unique design element to consider for your 2022 pole barn build is a pole barn bump out. A small bump out to create dimension in the building design can go a long way not only in enhancing aesthetic appeal but also in strategically adding extra square footage for more storage opportunities. Especially if you only want a few more inches of space in a specific area of your pole barn, a bump out is the best way to get the extra room you need without going over budget for your project.
Pole Building Cupola
Adding a decorative cupola is another great way to bring visual intrigue to your pole building. Available in two design options, our team can add a standard metal cupola or a glass wall cupola for an even more sophisticated style.
