There are a few major design elements to keep in mind when deciding on choosing the right sleeper look to enhance your homes sense of style. Think of how you will consider Space, Light, Colour, Form, Texture and Pattern in your installations.
Another important thing to consider is the FUNCTION of your sleeper wall.
Often you will need a product to address all three of these functions which makes Excaliber sleepers one of the most versatile concrete products on the market today.
Choosing a face to enhance your design aesthetic.
Excaliber sleepers come in the following face patters:
Timber, Sandstone, Stacker stone, Random stacker stone, Flagstone, Plain concrete.
When designing your outdoor spaces to compliment your homes design aesthetic, consideration of both texture and colour is important as both of these elements will enhance the look and feel of your space.
Excaliber sleepers are tinted throughout the whole piece, not painted on top like inferior products. This means they will withstand the wear and tare of every day life, scratches, dents and chips won’t be noticeable and your wall will look just as good in 10 years as it does when first installed. To create a more authentic, natural or organic surface, colour splashes can also be applied by hand during the manufacturing process to each individual sleeper, making everyone unique, mirroring natural wood or stone.
Excaliber sleepers come in the following base colours, Shadow, bone, Latte, Oak and Snow. Splash combinations can be made by the layering of Cargo or Shadow splashes sparingly over the desired base colour of the sleeper surface during production. This adds further dimension and depth in the appearance of the sleeper face which is desirable when mimicking natural surfaces.
Sometimes it can be daunting to choose a look with so many options available. Deciding which face and colour or colour combination can be made easier when you clarify the design style you are after. To decide on a style you may want to reflect the themes you have used already throughout your home that reflects the personality of you and your family. In most Australian homes there is often a combination and marrying of different styles, which is very reflective of our culture which combines many international influences moulded by the many different environmental factors existing throughout the Australian landscape.
