A brick slip feature wall in a kitchen can help to break up the various structures and appliances that make up the room.
Brick slips are hard wearing and robust making them a perfect choice for a kitchen feature wall.
Ideas and Inspiration
Industrial, contemporary and Shaker are the most preferred styles of kitchen in the UK. Including a brick slip feature wall can allow a design to go beyond these remits.
With the addition of exposed brick work these kitchens can be given a more Farmhouse, Mediterranean, Victorian and even Coastal feel.
With the kitchen being the heart and soul of the family home, making that extra special effort with wall coverings can go a long way.
Can brick slips be used externally?

Buildings can be completed to look like traditional builds while utilising modern quick construction methods.
Brick slips can be used to clad most external cladding systems including , EWI, SIPS, Durisol Block and standard timber frame. All systems have their own method of installation and benefits.

Made from real clay bricks
Our products are manufactured using real clay bricks. When installed externally all brick slips weather in exactly the same way as their parent counterparts. The same frost rating which applies to the brick then applies to the brick slip.
