Whenever we hear people talking about bricks, we instantly think of hairy builders building garden walls or house extensions. The mere thought of utilising bricks within an interior design aspect of a project would make most of us shudder and almost definitely send those of us that remember the open brickwork designs of the 1970s into interior design meltdown.
Even with those horrid thoughts in mind we are in a new age of design this is the 21st century and bricks are not just bricks anymore, infact we don’t even have to use full bricks we now have brickslips (the external cut face of the brick) these are cut from actual bricks and offer many different designs, colours and textures.
Brickslips are opening up lots of doors to interior designers which were once not available, a fantastic product and although we have not reinvented the wheel in what we do, what we have done is put endless research into what the consumer wants and what our industry requires of us.
All of our products can be installed in the same manor as laying tiles so whatever look you are aiming for be it a rustic london weathered look or the open brickwork of a New York styled loft conversion or to merely create one feature wall our brickslips are perfect for this.
You may have noticed from movies or magazines that when you incorporate brickslips in your design, it is usually accompanied with a nice wood, and accented with nostalgic signs, old school references and a mix of rustic, modern and tradition.
When you consider space is a premium within the cities and the average size of a feature wall is only 11 square meters in area, to give an example our portabello brickslips on a full feature wall of that size would cost approximatley £500 in materials, proving that you can accomplish this trendy design feature on a budget, and why not do the work yourself as this only adds to the rustic look and is jolly good fun to do. Why not have a go yourself!
