wall cladding and rendering

Wall cladding and rendering can make all the difference to your property. Using the right materials will enhance your home’s features and leave it looking smart and stylish. But with so many materials, colours and textures out there, it can be hard to work out what will look the best.

This year there’s a move away from restricted colour pallets and synthetic materials. Read on to find out 3 new wall cladding and rendering trends for 2017.

1. Mix materials and colours

One popular wall cladding and rendering trend this year is to mix it up. Monochrome walls are being replaced with multiple colours and textures to create an exciting and eye-catching exterior.

If you want to follow this trend, try using a combination of cladding and rendering on your home exterior. You can use rendering to create a smooth texture that contrasts effectively with rougher materials, like wood or brick cladding. Or couple more textured rendering with smoother cladding materials, like uPVC or polished stone.

2. Go natural

Natural materials are really popular this year, for both home interiors and exteriors. Timber or stone cladding are great choices if you want to create a stylish and on trend exterior. Going for these types of cladding in their original colours is a great way to highlight their natural features.

Plus if you fit natural materials on the outside of your home, you don’t need to worry about it going out of style. Although natural materials go in and out of fashion, they’re always a popular look.

3. Create consistency

Another way to get your home exterior looking on trend this year is to use rendering to give it a smooth over. Mismatched or uneven walls can look scruffy and make your home look less valuable than it actually is. Using rendering to even out and cover your walls will instantly refresh it and highlight its architectural features.

So there are several ways you can keep your home exterior looking smart and stylish this year. If you’re looking for a wall cladding and rendering professional to help you out, click ‘Start my project’ and complete our online form. We’ll put you in touch with up to 4 contractors in your area.
