Boral Bricks  launches 12 new exterior colour scheme combinations for bricks and roof tiles to facilitate the decision-making process for selecting and recommending exterior finishes.

Easy-to-use Colour Inspirations feature modern and appealing tonal combinations across clay bricks and pavers, roof tiles and complementary fascia and gutter trim options for projects in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.

National Marketing Manager Boral Bricks and Roofing, Eddy Maini, said the schemes are a tool for builders, colour consultants and architects to help them quickly visualise an end result that is workable.

“Working with one of Australia’s leading colour professionals, Boral has ensured that each of the 12 schemes is tried and tested. Colour selection can be challenging, particularly given that a colour’s appearance will be modified by another colour as well as light,” Eddy said.

“We hope the Colour Inspirations tool will assist industry professionals gain colour confidence with Boral products and realise the possibilities available across our ranges of bricks, pavers and roof tiles.”

Key considerations in the final colour schemes were site location, architectural style and budget diversity, which also address a direction towards native and Mediterranean planting preferences in landscaping design.

“The vast contrasts in terrain between New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria were also considered, which led to separate combinations for each state,” Eddy added.
