This post is a collaboration with Monier

The exterior of our home is sitting right at the end of our renovation timeline, in no small part due to the overwhelming scale of the decision-making process. Simple spruce-up? Complete overhaul? We don’t even know that, let alone our options in terms of materials and finishes.

So any company that can take such big (and expensive!) roofing decisions and turn them into a fun visualisation gets a big thumbs up in my book. Monier – makers of terracotta tiles and solar tiles – has released just such a tool. ColourTouch enables you to play around with materials and colours until you get the right look for you.

I had a play with it and came up with three different looks for the same house:
