Many people decide on using brick cladding for Living room or Kitchen feature walls. This is for good reason, they provide a focal point and exude a level of realism that often newly designed homes lack.
One room which often gets overlooked is the family bathroom.
Bathroom Brick Cladding works great!
Its true, brick slips are a fantastic choice for a bathroom feature wall.
Using brick cladding you can have a simple, affordable and stylish wall in your bathroom which sets you apart from the rest.
Recent stylings mean that bathrooms all tend to have the same theme. A wet room area, with fixtures and fittings, and either porcelain or ceramic tiles. I know this is quite a generalisation but in truth it is not that far off point.

Brick slips make fantastic bathroom feature walls and providing a few sensible rules are followed they can work great both in design and colour.
Main Bathroom Brick Cladding Rules
- Always choose a structurally sound substrate. one that can hold the weight of standard tiles is perfectly fine.
- Always prime the surface prior to installation. This will stop the substrate from absorbing the moisture from the adhesive before it has time to fully set.
- Avoid cladding areas where there will be a frequent risk of skin contact. Bodies can be delicate and unless the brick slip surface is smooth we would advise against using them in shower areas.
- If you are applying brick slips adjoining a bath or sink area always make sure you use professional bathroom sealant to bead the joint adjoining the fixture of fitting.
- We would always advise a minimum of 3 coats of tile seal and protect for any bathroom installation. Always wait a minimum of 2 weeks after installation before you seal.
- Our most important rule is Be Creative
