As much as we’re interior lovers here at Style Sourcebook, we can’t go past a good exterior. A gorgeous façade is not only essential for curb appeal but also for setting the tone for your house. With façades being such a huge component (literally), it can be tricky knowing what will look good and be practical for your location. Cladding is the perfect solution when it comes to giving your façade a facelift. So, to help you discover a few incredible exterior cladding solutions, we’re sitting down with the team at James Hardie.

If you haven’t already heard, Hardie™ Architectural Collection is a game-changer. With their curated cladding collection, the design possibilities are endless. The collection combines the renowned durability and product performance of the existing cladding portfolio with new, distinctive textures, and profiles. Come with us to explore their two new additions that are sure to upgrade your home’s exterior.

Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding 

Described as “fresh, flowing lines for a sophisticated dynamic finish”, Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding is the contemporary option you’ve been searching for. Its embedded texture is reminiscent of softly brushed concrete, perfect for modern façades with interest. Plus, the Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding is suitable for ground floor and mixed-storey applications, meaning it has the versatility to standalone or be paired with other claddings from the curated Hardie™ Architectural Collection.

Pre-primed and ready to paint in the colour of your choice, Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding can be personalised to suit your contemporary build, making it uniquely yours. Need we say more? 

Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding 

If stand out, one-of-a-kind façades are your thing, look no further than Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding. This new addition to the Hardie™ Architectural Collection is a fresh twist on traditional vertical cladding. Suited to contemporary aesthetics that want a bold feature, the bespoke design flexibility of the product truly takes your home to the next level. 

With its exclusive slanted groove edge, the Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding produces dynamic highlights and shadows that are influenced by the movement of natural light, creating rhythm, depth, and interest. Not to mention the Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding also comes in two different widths, 200mm and 300mm, meaning you can mix and match for unique combinations and patterns. Like Hardie™ Brushed Concrete Cladding, Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding is built to withstand tough Australian conditions. Hardie™ exterior cladding is ready for what life throws at it, allowing you to love where you live longer. 

Hardie™ Oblique™ Cladding can also be painted to suit your style. We love the idea of using dark-toned paint with warm undertones to really enhance the shadows and texture of this impressive product as light shifts throughout the day. 

We hope these two new textures and profiles of the Hardie™ Architectural Collection have left you feeling inspired to give your façade a facelift.
