Many homes around Australia have a roof made from the standard colour palette from Colorbond®. That’s because they’re simple, elegant and can be matched to suit any style of home. Inspired by the natural environment around us, Colorbond®’s standard palette is always a favourite.
Three colours have been retired from the standard palette, namely Cove®, Mangrove® and Terrain®. However, three new colours have also been introduced:
The ultimate in compatibility is the Dover White™ colour. Being mostly white, it helps to reflect heat away from your home, meaning a cooler lifestyle and lower energy bills. Plus, you can match it with almost any colour scheme. Taking inspiration from Australia’s sands and alpine snow, we’re confident that Dover White™ is going to be an extremely popular colour for Australian homes.
While the name conjures thoughts of wind, the main focus here is on the neutrality of colour. This colour is suitable for all applications, including wall cladding and roofing. But the appeal here is the light, sandy colour can combine beautifully with both light and dark surroundings.
There’s no doubt about the inspiration for this new addition to the Colorbond® steel standard palette. Named after the beautiful trees from which it takes inspiration, Bluegum® is a much darker tone than the other two new colours. Technically a mid-tone, again it can look great with all sorts of house designs and colour schemes. Extremely versatile, Bluegum® looks terrific on ultra-modern homes.
