Embracing Modern Exterior Trends with the Design Duo

Mastering Contemporary Design with LYSAGHT ENSEAM®

In the ever-evolving world of exterior design, staying abreast of the latest trends is key to creating spaces that are both contemporary and timeless. Alisa and Lysandra Fraser, well-known as the Design Duo, share their expert perspective on current exterior trends, offering homeowners valuable insights for their next building or renovation project.

"Sustainability, natural and earthy tones inspired by nature, mixed materials, and clean lines" are at the forefront of today's exterior design trends, according to Alisa and Lysandra. This approach reflects a growing need among homeowners to complement their living spaces with the environment, creating exteriors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also ecologically mindful.

One of the key elements in achieving the right mix of style and sustainability is the choice of building materials. "Metal cladding is a significant trend we are seeing," the Design Duo notes. It's a material choice that can "emphasise the seamless look that integrates with natural materials like stone." This preference underscores a shift towards materials that offer both durability and design flexibility.

In their own projects, Alisa and Lysandra have featured the LYSAGHT ZENITH® range in ENSEAM®, made with COLORBOND® steel. This choice is not just about aesthetics; it's about functionality and adaptability. "ZENITH ENSEAM® is available in a range of finishes and colours, making it a versatile choice," they explain. For homeowners, this means greater creative freedom to tailor their exteriors to personal tastes while ensuring longevity and low maintenance.

The Design Duo's use of LYSAGHT ENSEAM® in their projects is a testament to Lysaght's commitment to providing homeowners with building solutions that are at the cutting edge of design trends. Their expertise and choice of LYSAGHT® building products showcase how the right materials can transform an exterior space into a modern, sustainable, and visually appealing part of a home.

For those embarking on a building or renovation journey, understanding and incorporating these exterior trends is crucial. It's about creating a space that not only reflects current design sensibilities but also embraces sustainable practices and the integration of innovative materials like the LYSAGHT ZENITH® range.

In summary, the current trends in exterior design are a blend of aesthetic appeal and environmental consciousness, with materials like steel cladding playing a pivotal role. As advocated by the Design Duo, incorporating products like LYSAGHT ENSEAM® can significantly elevate the design of any exterior project, making it an ideal choice for homeowners looking to combine style with substance in their next project.
