Concrete may look bland and boring to some, but to others this magical modern material has it's own texture and decorative charm, making your house an interesting industrial attraction. 

4. Polished stone

There's something so sublime about natural polished stone tiles decorating the exterior in exquisite detail. Recreate a Mediterranean design with mosaics, taking advantage of the evolving shadows.

5. A darker stone

Contrasting colours and textures is another way to enhance elegance, opt for polished and textured stone tiles in shades of grey and black for a gorgeous design, especially when paired with white walls. 

6. Stone slab

A stone slab is a beautiful material for a natural and elegant facade. Decorate a high wall in this colourful option for an aesthetically appealing sophisticated design. 

7. Stained wood

Slender horizontal slats of dark or reddish wood includes an irresistible, warm element to the architecture, while the horizontal layout creates an illusion of a spacious environment. 

8. Enameled aluminium

This may be an eclectic choice, but it's bold enough for a modern homeowner. Enameled aluminium is available in a variety of colours, and because it's durable and flexible it can be cut to suit any requirement.

9. Ceramics

Ceramics are available in an endless array of colours and shapes to suit any style, so whether you're looking for square tiles, hexagonal or even rectangular, your home can look chic easily in any colour you choose.

10. Natural
