Can anyone advise us?
We need to extend downstairs cloakroom forward into front porch to provide space for a shower for our old age! This involves changing the front aspect to have new door on the left as you face it and unfortunately a solid wall.
I cannot visualise a finish that will look good and not contrived. Would yellow brick look ok? Or roughcast? Or some easy maintenance wood of some kind? Or will anything just look awful?
We do have a builder coming to inspect but we are looking for some ideas or advice. Hope someone can help.

Hi hobbesnina - queries like this should get much more response if you post them as a Design Dilemma in the dedicated Advice section: rather than on individual stories on unrelated topics. Good luck - and hope you get some good tips from the ever helpful Houzz community :)

Hi hobbesnina, I think coloured render or a timber cladding would look good. Good luck with your renovation! X
