Here we have a brick slip feature wall special, hopefully full of great visual tips and ideas to help you on your way.
Some people find interior design simple and easy, and for those people I salute your ingenuity and imagination. Unfortunately not everyone has that creative streak, and if you are like me you really need to see what you want to be able to achieve your desired look.
It is a clear fact that most of us need inspiration and pushing in the right direction when we are looking to design a feature room. IKEA are famous for creating designer room sets in their showroom, off course this prompts purchases but it also helps to inspire the waves and waves of seemingly clueless customers that are struggling with designing and styling what they want.
Why have a feature wall?
Focusing on the elements which bind a rooms design together, the feature wall has to be top of the bill. The main draw of a brick slip feature wall has to be texture.
For some insane reason many people think of texture as an afterthought. Texture, and especially wall textures like timber, tiles and brick slips are essential when trying to achieve a fully balance room.
A brick slip feature wall has texture by the bucket load, and it is texture that makes a room pop. By adding a brick slip feature wall the texture and colour that it creates makes for interior perfection.
Choosing the style and product is merely down to taste, in our opinion it is the tactility and realism that a brick slip feature wall adds that makes you want to be in it. Live in it.
What colour should i choose?
Depending on the colours of the project, walls and surfaces can naturally reflect or absorb light to effectively manipulate interior spaces.
Natural light gives you the most honest representation of colour so placing your brick slip feature wall adjacent to a window or door will allow the true colour to shine.
The great thing about brick slips is that they take on the subtitles of artificial and natural light. Thanks to seasons, the tone and colour subtly change throughout the year, bringing more of the outside in. This is the great thing about brick slips made from real clay bricks. The colour is always there.
Shadow and light can be as mysterious as smoke and mirrors when it comes to a brick slip feature wall, so choose the right location for best results.
A feature wall within modern design
Modern designs often call for crisp and edges, most newbuild modern spaces now offer open plan living too. Open plan and brick slips go together like peas and corrots. A brick slip feature wall can help to bind one area to the nextand offers a unifying texture that allows the room to be seen as a whole whilst staying functional to its purpose.
A feature wall could also create just part of one open space. Creating an interior partition that adds meaning and function to the area of the room.
Be daring and go with your instinct
Finally, if you are planning a brick slip feature wall. Go with your gut instinct. More often than not it is the right thing to do.
Recommending specific products in this blog would be unfair. I think it would be best to just allow the ideas and images shine and get your creative juices flowing.
