Darren Smith Homes


Darren Smith Homes is a family run company spanning four generations of house builders.

Their vision when investing in 38 apartments in Newgate, Mirfield was to create truly luxurious homes. Initially focusing on the show apartment they aimed to create a ‘spa at home style’ utilising Bushboard’s Nuance range.

Nuance is a unique, award-winning bathroom panelling range that is 100% waterproof, extrusion-free and can be installed in a matter of hours offering a wide choice of stunning designs and textures to create individual interiors. Whether the look is traditional, modern or contemporary, Nuance offers a design that will work for any project.


The Bushboard specification team thrive on helping contractors and support projects from start to finish, ensuring they are nurtured to a mutually successful conclusion.

“Bushboard supported us the whole way, the process went very smoothly and really well. From the super fast sample service to visiting us for a design appointment, and demostrating product installation to our team, Bushboard’s service has been fabulous from beginning to end.”


Tony specified the stunning Soapstone Sequoia from the Nuance range, and to complete the luxury feel selected Ivory Glass solid surface from Bushboard’s unrivalled Encore collection for the vanity surfaces giving the feeling of sheer indulgence and cool, sophisticated elegance.

"Both Encore and Nuance were very straightforward to fit, this was the first time for us installing both ranges and it really surprised us how easy it was, with no hiccups along the way at all. The choice of decors combined, gave an excellent finish and we are thrilled with the result. We will definitley be specifing both products again for the remainder of the development."

Bushboard strive to develop aspirational products using unique materials, manufacturing processes and installation techniques to create great design.
