See Sky High Style at Plantation Homes

24th April 2018


The first thing you see when you come home, and the last as you leave, roof choices have a surprising impact.


The results are in, and style conscious Queenslander’s are opting for a crisp white palette when it comes to the roof line.

Designer decisions

Reviewing the latest new home sales data, we have identified that when it comes to COLORBOND® steel, it is the Surfmist finish proving the most popular.

In a complete contrast, the second most popular COLORBOND® Steel choice is the Monument selection, a very dark grey.

Stunning, inside and out

Plantation Homes Marketing Manager Amanda Reilly said the COLORBOND ® steel colours give a modern, lasting look, which easily blend with, and enhance internal colour choices.

“The Surfmist finish is incredibly popular because it boasts a uniquely Queensland finish. It is fresh, stylish and has a sophisticated coastal feel.

“It also boasts more energy efficiency, absorbing less heat than a darker finish.

“Being attractively neutral, it can also help blend the external features like brickwork and render, with your interior design lighting and highlights,” added Ms Reilly. 

Already beautifully built

Surfmist is also a colour of choice across many of our Ready Built homes with the recent release of House and Land packages at Eastpoint Estate in Hemmant heavily showcasing the colour.

With a COLORBOND® steel finish on over 30 Plantation Homes display homes throughout South East Queensland, it’s easy to compare the styles and determine your preferences by visiting any of our display locations, but you can also take the task online with our interactive Visualiser.

“We have colour-matched COLORBOND® steel swatch options on our Visualiser tool, so you can explore the full range whenever it suits you!,” added Ms Reilly.
