HOW CAN I ACHIEVE A MOD­ERN LOOK THAT’S STILL UNIQUE?

Mod­ern de­signs are all about func­tion and clean, sim­ple lines that pro­vide a stream­lined look that’s sleek and edgy. Be clever about your choice of ma­te­ri­als to add tex­ture and con­sider se­lect­ing two or three con­trast­ing fin­ishes. When we built our fam­ily home, we chose to com­bine Scyon™ Axon™ ver­ti­cal cladding with HardieFlex™ and Ax­ent™ trim for the clean lines and an­gles of an in­dus­trial look. Se­lect a cre­ative colour scheme that will re­ally set your de­sign apart, mak­ing your home as dis­tinct as you are.

HOW CAN I EX­PLAIN THE DE­SIGN I WANT FOR MY HOME TO MY BUILDER?

Some­times it’s hard to put into words, so col­lect­ing ex­am­ples that demon­strate your style and ma­te­rial sam­ples will help. They say a pic­ture says a thou­sand words, so use a visu­aliser tool to cre­ate a de­sign that says ev­ery­thing you imag­ine and show it to your builder or ar­chi­tect.
