Popular Color Choices for Barn Bases

Stick with the basics

Neutral colors like clay and beige never go out of style! Besides the fact that grays and clays are a very timeless, modern choice, they also are slow to show wear and tear. With endless possibilities of neutral options, this is our number one pole barn color scheme to capitalize on.

Neutral tones include:

  • Gray or clay
  • White or cream
  • Tan ormanila

Try red instead

Red is always in. This is a little bit more of a loud statement color, but those who are bold enough to believe in it tend to adore their decision! Red is one of the most popular horse barn colors we’ve worked with in the past year!

Red is great for anyone:

  • Wanting a stand-out statement
  • Loving that classic, American style
  • Wants a high re-sale value

Keep it natural

If you like the rustic barn style, you’ll LOVE a natural wood stained siding! The best way to communicate your admiration of this unique style without words is through this organic-looking pole barn color scheme.

Pros of wood stained vs. Colored siding:

  • Creates an organic, natural look
  • Wood siding can be more expensive than vinyl siding

Say yay to gray

One of the more subtle pole barn color schemes, ash gray is a common choice for an understated, sophisticated design. Because it is one of our beloved neutrals, nearly any color trim or accents will blend beautifully.

Gray is a great option for people:

  • Wanting a modern, understated barn
  • Admiring a unique look

Hop on heron

Something borrowed and something blue! Heron blue is very popular in beachy areas such as Delaware as the earthy tone matches the ocean feel. A non-traditional horse barn color may seem intimidating, but when paired with the proper accent colors, it’s a true crowd favorite!

Areas where Heron blue thrives:

  • Beachy areas
  • Upscale horse farms
  • Modern & non-traditional estates

Accent Horse Barn Color Ideas

Once you have the base color you want, it’s time to select your matching trim and roof color! Of course, the color of your accent pieces should be a reflection of whether you want a bold contrasting look, or a muted monotoned cohesion instead. Check out a few of our horse barn accent color options below:

  • Charcoal
  • Black
  • Bronze
  • Brown
  • Ivy (dark green)

In the 24 years we’ve been in business, we have noticed that homeowners oftentimes want to match the roof of the barn to the roof of their house – and actually, that is one of the most common ways to a choose roof color!
