Go Grey for a Statement Home Exterior
Australians are embracing European trends, with shades of grey are influencing interior and exterior styling. New home builders and renovators might like to consider charcoal, silver and grey bricks from building materials specialist Boral, to create a bold, modern exterior.
For some time now, we have seen a trend in the use of grey, blue and black bricks for creating statement exteriors.
Light greys are proving popular in Queensland, while Victorian homeowners have shown a preference for high impact, darker tones. New South Wales homes feature a consistent mix of both.
Different shades of grey will create a unique look and feel. The lighter hues of soft greys and silvers can create a low-key, coastal effect, while darker shades can make a contemporary, non-conformist statement.
Dark bricks, such as PGHs Nuvo Victorian Blue, are a good option for those looking to show off the design of their home, as darker shades minimise distractions and encourage the eye to focus on the shape and structure of the house.
Homeowners can also choose to combine light and dark shades of charcoal and grey to create a unique exterior or interior feature wall. The beauty of bricks is that they can be mixed and matched, offering design flexibility.
Bricks also offer a strong, safe and durable option for homeowners. Maintenance is minimal, which is important when considering the whole-of-life cost of a home.
