Colour Choice is Important! Here's what you Need to Know


Colour choice serves more purpose than enhancing your home’s design. From a passive design perspective, it’s essential as it can absorb or reflect light. In the case of this passive home design in Hazelmere, light colouring was used throughout to minimize heat gain in the summer as per the energy consultant’s recommendations. In Perth, where summers are infamously hot, this was a wise decision! The roof sheets are ‘Surfmist’ white. With the proper layout and choice of materials, this home became extremely comfortable to live in. Our clients had very little need for jumpers or slippers during the coolest times of the day. This is just an example of what we can achieve with passive solar design. To learn more, book a 20-minute no-obligation consultation by filling out our online form ~
