How to Accomplish a Modern Black Barn Design

From Houzz to Pinterest and even on your neighbor’s horse farm, modern black barns are a contemporary color style sweeping the nation! While there are countless other horse barn color schemes to choose from, black barns is one of the most popular for people who adore the minimalist, modern, rustic, or mid-century styles.

No matter the size, shape, style or location of your new build, you too can achieve this gorgeous statement for your barn or garage. We’re here to show you how!

Here are 3 things to consider when designing a black horse barn:

  1. Find your favorite shade of black: Like any popular neutral, there are various shades of black – some may have a cool undertone or a warm one and some may be lighter than others. At J&N Structures, we strongly recommend the shade “Black” by Haley Paint Co. for all our black horse barn designs!
  2. Choose an accent color: Unless you’re going for a totally monochromatic modern black barn design, like this one in Stowe, VT, you want to consider picking a secondary color to accent your barn with. Most commonly paired with a black barn is white, bronze, dark gray, or even red – of course, however; there is an endless supply of paint colors you can find your favorite from!
  3. If using an accent color, decide where you’ll use it: Will your secondary color be used for the trim and main door, or just around the stalls? While there’s no right or wrong answer to finding this balance, as custom barn builders, we often see an accent color on the trim and Dutch doors of a modern black barn.

At J&N Structures, we not only will help you decide what colors may be best, we’ll also expertly build a modern black barn for you! For over 22+ years, we’ve been constructing modular barns, garages and sheds for property owners across the East Coast – and black horse barns are no exception.
