Internal Cladding Use
Enhance internal spaces with internal cladding
Most cladding can also be adapted to be used internally. This enables the strong cladding themes to flow into internal spaces as well. Brick, timber and fibre cement all have options that allow for a seamless integration of the outside with the inside.
Timber has been used internally in building for a number of years and is loved for its warmth and feel. Using the same style of timber inside and out can create an overall feeling of continuity and a traditional earthy style. Timber is light weight and environmentally friendly which makes it perfect for internal use.
Brick is used internally to create a grand, solid feeling. There has always been something welcoming about a brick fireplace or feature wall. Matching
the internal bricks with those used outside can make a great statement of permanence. With all its heat retaining, acoustic and fire protection features using brick internally not only looks good but works well from a functional point of view.
Fibre Cement comes in several profiles that can be matched to give a great clean line look both inside and out. Fibre Cement is easy to install and very tough so can take all the day-to-day knocks that come with having a family home. It is also easy to paint and create the mood or look you are after and if you want to change your style at any stage it is easy to just repaint it again.
