One trend gaining momentum and popularity in recent years is the black and white home, especially in exterior applications.
While a healthy majority of Weathertex customers continue looking to freshen and brighten their facades in white, there is a smaller but growing trend of people opting for drama with black or alternatively, using both colours in a delightful sense.
Black and white design style is classic, elegant, and versatile. It can be used in a variety of design settings to create a sense of calm or to make a space feel larger.
Black and white when combined, is all about embracing the bold and fashionable, and together with Weathertex wide range of sustainable weatherboards, architectural panels and wall shingles, this is totally achievable. The overall effect of this mix of colours in external applications is incredibly striking, the classic all white or bold black home with contrasting trims, roof and fascias.
Black home exteriors are a trend that keeps gaining popularity. All black is a big statement, it creates sophistication and it’s unapologetically bold and fashionable. The architectural details pop and absorbs its surroundings, rather than deflects them, allowing the home to rest comfortably into its setting. However, remember to consider darker coloured paints draw attention to itself, whether positive or negative, they also have a lower Light Reflective Value (LRV) that may impact the thermal efficiency of the building.
So it’s no surprise that the most popular choice of colour is white. Whether it is the interior of your home or over Weathertex cladding facade, white provides the ultimate in the way of versatility and workability, while effectively portraying a strong sense of elegance with a crisp, fresh feel and look.
Classic all white homes create the perfect backdrop for beautiful landscaping and complements any type of architectural style from modern, to coastal Hampton’s, right through country cottage.
There is nothing more classic, chic, or timeless than a black and white interior. The high contrast, ‘opposites attract’ combination has long been favoured by interior designers and architects who find inspiration in the artistic purity and inherent glamour of a colour palette reduced to its essential elements.
Using varying textures on furniture, textiles, and Weathertex cladding is essential for creating a layered, dimensional space. Life is not always so simple as black and white, except when selecting your cladding material. Here’s some amazing and delightful Weathertex designs for some inspiration.
