Trending Designs To Consider Before Starting A Wall Cladding Installation

The Search For The Perfect Cladding Ends Here

From the sleek and cozy design of North American homes to the cutting edge, distinct look of European lofts, cladding provides an ultra-modern look to any piece of property. It’s time to forget the old days of average cladding and revolutionize the look of your home with state-of-the-art solutions that will change your space forever. 

With the perfect infusion of precise design and trailblazing technology, contemporary cladding boards elevate the stale look of ordinary cladding by providing alternatives that both awes and mesmerizes.  And that’s exactly what you’ll find in Norx’s London and Rome collections: two lines of superior wood-plastic composite cladding with different colors for all kinds of homes and living spaces. Before diving into how these two Norx products can benefit your space – and impress every visitor you have – we want to start off by putting you in the loop of some exciting trends we have been seeing lately.

Having trending cladding in your home design is Easier Than You Think

Vertical Cladding

At Lumber Plus, we provide a variety of cladding materials that allow for a wide range of home design and outdoor trends. And one trend that has recently become popular is to run your cladding vertically instead of the typical horizontal way that most cladding is installed. This both literally and figuratively elevates the look of your interior and exterior cladding by placing pieces of wood that run up and down instead of side to side on your wall cladding. This vertical line of design draws the human eye upward, thus emphasizing the entirety of your room instead of just one small section. When paired with an angled roof or composite siding, vertical cladding makes your home appear taller and more extensive. While this trend works with pretty much any kind of cladding, its contemporary look is better elevated with the lumber slats design that Norx’s collections mimic so perfectly.

Mix And Match Materials

Another trending use of cladding is using a mix of materials to achieve one cohesive and central look. Using Norx’s modern cladding with other materials on your ceiling or even exterior wall panels allows for a countless number of essentially endless combinations. This gives you, the homeowner, more freedom with the look and feel of your cladding material. When you pair Norx’s cladding with other materials, you are given the chance to craft deep and prominent angles that will give your cladding a distinguished look.

Wood-plastic composite cladding gives you more freedom to create a truly original look with distinguished features and composition. This is because of its adaptability to a variety of other materials. Because of its sleek, thin lumber slats that are adaptable to numerous materials, Norx supplies the perfect composite cladding that can be mixed and matched with a variety of other materials such as burnished concrete, tiles, and even backsplash.

The London Collection

From the posh distinction of the blocks of London, Lumber Plus sells a Norx collection that is made to resemble the look of the European atmosphere. The London collection provides a cladding that can both elevate the look and feel of your space while also providing an easy-to-install material that is environmentally friendly and efficient.

So whether you have an indoor or outdoor space, you’re renovating your home’s entire exterior facade, screening, or even ceiling designs, know that it can be completely done with the use of these wide slats composite cladding material.

London’s colors are also something to love. The Mayfair represents a teak look, which is always on trend, while the Hyde Park resembles an Ipe color, the king of hardwoods and the architect’s favorites.

But there’s more to this collection than just looking beautiful. The London comes with a secure above-average 30-year warranty with fire-resistant material. This will put your mind at ease when it comes to simple wear and tear. It will also keep you safe from any harmful or hazardous situations such as a fire or flooding.

And even better, this collection, as all Norx’s materials, is made from 95% recycled wood and plastic, thus making them one of the most prominent eco-friendly form of cladding, with ultra-low maintenance that adds up to minimum cost over it’s 30 or more years of use.

The Rome Collection

The Rome collection boasts the most vigorous and robust form of cladding on the market. Its durability isn’t the only thing to admire either. The Rome boasts two prominent colors like the Pantheon, which mimics a beautiful Ipe color and the Colosseum that represents an enchanting Teak. Additionally, the Rome acts as a wood-plastic composite cladding that is both captivating and alluring.

But there are so many other features that come with the Rome besides eye-popping colors and impactful durability. Ease and peace of mind are given through this easy-to-install and low maintenance composite cladding. Since Norx’s products are made of composite materials, they require far less maintenance than pressure-treated lumber. And even though the initial purchase may be a bit expensive, it’s more than worth it down the line.

Even with these industry-defining features, we all know that cladding can’t get by solely on its good looks or easy installation. It needs to be something that will stand the test of time. Something that’s a worthy investment. Like all of Norx’s products, the Rome comes with enhanced resistance that results in cladding that will last a home’s lifetime. Like the London, this collection comes with the same 30-year warranty that supports its long-lasting lifespan and eliminates any needless worry or stress. 

Not only is this collection more than worth the investment, it’s something that keeps your home protected while maintaining a pleasant temperature, making your space comfortable and livable.

More to admire about this collection:

  • Moisture resistance
  • Anti-microbial
  • Robust and durable strength
  • Stain-resistant
  • Narrow slats
  • Stain-resistant

These features make this collection a one of a kind that will completely redefine your home’s look for the better. And with slats narrower than the London collection, the Rome is a composite cladding that makes installation easy and stress-free. With a sleek and ultramodern design, the Rome makes a long-lasting impression that will change your home forever.

Which to choose:

London or Rome?

Now that we’ve convinced you about the quality of Norx’s composite, it’s time to make the final decision. Norx or London? And you’re probably wondering what’s the difference between both collections and how you should decide between the two.

Well, simply put, the central difference between the Rome and the London is within the width of their individual slats. While the London has wider slats, the Rome opts for a narrower approach with thinner slats within its cladding. This difference in slats makes each collection unique and individual. While both collections offer a variety of benefits and features, the choice depends entirely on your home design.

Before making any selection between the Rome or the London, it’s important to understand what you want from your space. And while the decision may seem daunting at first, you can’t go wrong with any collection. With either the Rome or the London, you’re guaranteed success with the best possible product.
