As a captivating alternative to ceramic wall tiling, innovative home builders Darren Smith Homes™ in West Yorkshire has chosen Bushboard’s Nuance bathroom wall panelling as a compelling and practical way of creating spectacular bathrooms for thirty-eight luxury apartments in Newgate, Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Darren Smith Homes ™ is a family-run company that have been creating luxury homes for over 50 years.   Proud of its reputation for quality and service, Site Agent, Tony Hutton explained “Choosing Nuance was a bit of a leap for us, we’ve always tiled our bathrooms.  We are blown away by the results.  Bushboard couldn’t have been more accommodating in terms of design and supply.  From sample service through to a design and installation training, Bushboard were supportive the whole way through.   The end result is remarkable, undetectable seams and no trims whatsoever which gives a top-quality feel – a real point of difference for our homes  too.”

Darren Smith Homes™ provide a 10-year NHBC warranty with each home and have achieved an NHBC A1 rating, so quality is paramount.

Paul Findlay, Nuance product sales manager explains “Darren Smith Homes™ saw the design and performance potential immediately.  They wanted something to make their bathrooms really stand out. Nuance is made right here in the UK.  The choice of designs, decors and textures, the speed of installation and the seamless look is second to none.  Darren Smith Homes’™ tradespeople really took to the product and using BB Complete* adhesive, installed all thirty-eight bathrooms in a very short space of time.”

NUANCE panels are manufactured using a patented core that is 100 percent impervious to water. The panels can be used for walls, around the bath or basin, inside a shower enclosure or to create a true wet room. Because there is no need for trims or extrusions, Nuance panels present a sleek, seam-free look that is especially effective in smaller bathrooms.  The panelling is easy to clean too – no grout lines to attract grime, limescale and mould. All that is needed is a wipe down with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
