Interior feature walls are often created using only colour, but that’s changing, and with it so are the materials being used. In particular, interesting visual aspects are becoming more popular, and that’s where James Hardie’s Jerry Friar says the market is moving.
James Hardie recently expanded its HardieGroove Lining range of grooved fibre cement to incorporate 3000mm lengths – previously the range extended to 2700mm lengths. “Stud heights are increasing and we are also seeing more vaulted ceilings so there’s demand for options.” Jerry says.
The 100mm spaced V-grooves allows designers to create a cost effective visual element as a feature wall, in either a contemporary or very traditional manner.
“In regard to the traditional aspect HardieGroove Lining can create, we often see it specified for older homes – Villas, Bungalows and Farmhouse-style properties – and used in conjunction with wide skirting’s and dado rails.”
