Designing and building your own home is an exciting opportunity for you to show your unique personality. The facade of your home is one of the most important aspects of the build- it’s the first impression. A very simple way to create immediate wow factor is to utilise mixed materials to create your own spin on the design of your home.
When considering finishes for your home, there are many choices to be made. Mixing the materials your façade is comprised of, will give you’re the greatest flexibility to ensure your unique statement is made.
Let’s have a look at a few ways in which you can use mixed materials to create your perfect home.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like spending my weekends working on the house. When looking for our next home, we are specifically looking for a low maintenance home. To achieve this, think of mixed materials like cladding and stone, or cladding and timber . Scyon Walls™ cladding is made from fibre cement, so it doesn’t rot and is resistant to moisture damage and termite damage, further reducing the maintenance on your home. Stria™ wall cladding by Scyon Walls would sit perfectly alongside a stone feature walls to create a low maintenance but stunning home.

It’s no secret that I love a classic look home. Think Hampton’s style, traditional and replica Queenslanders, they have my heart. This look is easy to achieve utilising Scyon Linea™ Weatherboards—add some gorgeous round windows finished with a white trim and you have the perfect Hamptons home.

I actually have a soft spot for modern homes, having lived in one for 5 years prior to our Queenslander. I feel they are such an expressive home. I love the freedom that comes with designing modern homes, with its choices of materials to use. Try mixing up the sizes and orientation of a cladding like Scyon Axon to differentiate parts of the facade. A clever way to show your own flare!
