When it comes to entertaining, nothing is better than a spacious and open-concept kitchen. Barndominium plans offer a unique way to combine modern style with having a cozy and inviting feel. While the term barndominium is often used to refer to a metal building, most of these house plans feature traditional wood framing. Here are ten plans that allow you to entertain your guests in your home without ever leaving the kitchen.

This house plan features a layout that can be enjoyed by all. A semi-open floor plan makes entertaining and socialization effortless. The large center island in the kitchen includes a built-in bar top, which allows a great place for others to sit and chat while you’re preparing food and drinks. Having a walk-in pantry just a few steps away boosts the functionality of this kitchen.

Conversations flow into the dining room where you can enjoy the ambient vibes of the fireplace. The eye-catching fireplace not only provides warmth during the cold months, but it also acts as an aesthetic focal point of the house and strategically breaks up open space. End your nights relaxing on the couch in the great room or on the covered porch.

This home plan is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and country lifestyle while still maintaining a modern design. In the kitchen you will find an island that comfortably seats six people and will be able to easily communicate between the dining room and living room. There is a grilling porch attached to the kitchen so that you don’t have to cook inside while enjoying your time outdoors with friends or family members on warm days. Even if you decide to stay indoors, you’ll still be able to appreciate the outdoors from the natural light coming from the loft above the living room.
