Using Existing Openings for New Doors and Windows

Sometimes, with house renovations, it’s good to tear up the existing structure and layout of your Lutterworth property and create something brand new. However, when it comes to barn conversion projects, it’s often best to embrace what’s already there. Whether you’re combining contemporary elements with the old or looking to create a vintage feeling with your converted barn, our new house builders recommend using the existing opening of your barn. By design, many barns have large old bay, loft or stable doors, which can be utilised for bifold doors and double-glazing panels that can allow a lot of natural light into your new barn.

Preserving Features

Similar to house extensions or house renovations in period properties, a lot of planning for barn conversions revolves around balancing the old elements of the property with new modern design elements. With our extensive knowledge of building services, working with a construction company like Berry Bespoke gives you plenty of design choices. However, when converting a barn, we suggest thinking about preserving any distinctive features the barn may have. Whether it’s exposed wood beams, old brickwork or a large roaring fireplace, preserving elements like these can give your new barn a sense of true character. 

Open Floor Plan vs Closed Floor Plan

Similar to the window and door design of most barns in and around the Lutterworth area, a barn’s floor plan is typically large and open. As experienced new house builders, we know for some of our customers that this can be a dream. A lot of homes tend to have a closed plan with floors segmented into individual rooms. However, with the size of some barns, an open floor plan may make your barn feel a little empty and make you worry about how you fill up such a large space. Perhaps for some, installing new internal walls can help create purpose-built rooms within the new barn to make better use of such a large and open space.
