Millboard Decking has been a popular option with garden room designers over the last few years, as it is one of the best quality composite decking boards available. It not only has the benefit of not requiring maintenance to maintain its appearance, but it also has a realistic and characterful woodgrain texture.
So attractive are the boards that garden room designers have used it as a wall cladding, as well as on decks. This project by Brighton based A Room in the Garden showcases the technique of using Millboard Decking as a wall cladding, to dramatic effect.
New Cladding range
The Millboard team have just launched a range of cladding boards - we can see they will be a popular option with garden room designers, and we look forward to seeing how they make use of the boards in their designs.
Millboard Cladding is available in two profiles, each available in four different colours.
The V-groove option will create the contemporary flush style that has been made popular by tongue and groove Cedar cladding.
The other option is a batten and board profile, which will create a wall with a lot of interest and character. With batten and board cladding, a narrow batten covers the joints between wider boards. The finish gives the wall a lovely sense of depth.
We like the rich tones of the oak finishes, but it is the Burnt Cedar we can see being a popular option in garden room design. We have written about the trend for black cladding for garden rooms. Millboard Cladding will be a good choice for creating this look, because it will maintain its colour without the need for repainting.
A key feature of Millboard cladding is its woodgrain texture - it is one of the most realistic woodgrain textures we have seen in composite cladding. This is because Millboard uses real wood as part of its moulding process.
