This winter, give your home a few simple upgrades to enrich the texture of your interiors by investing in cladding your fireplaces. Revelstone offers cladding as the perfect option for insulation and aesthetic properties. We explore…
Whether outdoors or indoors, cladding is a versatile and long-lasting solution to adding texture and shading naturally. Well known for it’s resistance to water and erosion, this material is a no-brainer when it comes to durability and attractive feel.
Cladding allows you to save tons of money on appliances such as air-conditioning and heaters as it has the amazing ability of retaining heat. In addition to maintaining temperature, cladding also acts as a great noise insulator and a protective barrier against walls. This seems to be the perfect recipe for lazy evenings around the fireplace.
Cladding is a highly popular decorative feature. Evolving technology and the need for sustainable and mixed materials means that raw is better. The decor and design world has embraced this need by elevating the concept of mixed and natural materials as highly desirable aesthetic features in our homes. Coupled with the fact that cladding requires no replacement, is cost-effective and removes the need for painting and (then) repainting your walls. Available in a wide variety of colours, why not make a statement by using different colours within one strip of wall? The result is a unique and appealing look that is timeless.
Klompie and Saxon Cladding
The concept of the Klompie brick was first used by Dutch settlers in the Cape where clay was fire-burned into a usable material for building (steps, fireplaces, verandas) and even cooking, where the bricks were heated and then used to keep food warm. Revelstone has honoured the history of this small, even brick to produce superior stone cladding that is uniform and perfect for a historical feel to your interiors (or outdoors). The Saxon cladding is exactly the same in terms of quality, with only a difference in design.
With so many options, the most challenging is making the right choice. Revelstone boasts an impressively trained team that can advice you on making the best choice for your interiors this winter.
