In recent years barn conversions have become really popular – it is easy to see why. They are a great way to have a unique and beautiful home, and converting a barn is a fantastic opportunity to have a home that you love that is full of character.

 

When doing a barn conversion, you should make sure that although you will be making the place your own, you should design everything so that it matches the style of the barn – if you want to be super modern this is not the place to do it!

Think about doors and windows done in a traditional wood, and oak truss – for floors wood or tiles are both great, as well as carpet – this is also important for obtaining planning permission as planners want to see the designs being sympathetic with the whole building – if they aren’t happy with the plans they won’t grant permission.

A barn conversion is a great way to own a countryside property, that you also get the chance to create in the way that you want to. Depending on where you are in the country, you will find a different variety of barns – different materials, different ages and different layouts – so it is worth having a look into types of barns if you have an idea in mind for your barn conversion.

 

Remember if a bard is very old it may be classed as a listed building, which means that it may have mor restrictions when it comes to converting it.
