Boral Bricks has introduced a new range of bricks designed to provide more options to home builders and renovators seeking a contemporary exterior.

Designed to match modern colour trends, the new Boral Horizon Naturals range of bricks features six shades, including the popular Silver Cloud and Grey Stone. 

David Bird, general manager of Boral Bricks East, comments that the Horizons Naturals range is ideal for homeowners seeking a modern exterior; it reflects Australians’ love of natural materials and is inspired by clean lines, solid colours and interior design trends. 

Featuring a distinctive rounded edge and a Velour colour-coated face mimicking a rendered finish, the bricks are designed to minimise maintenance. 

Bird explains that a well-designed exterior should be functional and durable, and embody the personality of the homeowners. The new Horizon Naturals range offers a flexible and personal exterior design solution. 

According to Bird, bricks are also a strong, safe, durable and low-maintenance solution, which is important when considering the whole-of-life cost of a home. Horizon Naturals bricks are ideal for harsh Australian weather conditions, particularly coastal properties. 

Boral has also added Emerald, Mitchell and Roma to the Horizons Hinterlands bricks range. Featuring a rough Velour finish with a square edge and monochromatic colour, these colour-through bricks are ideal for first home buyers and investors.
