If you are thinking of going for brick slip for your next home decorating project then colour selection is of primary concern.
Learn how to pick the perfect colour brick slips for your next interior design makeover.
There’s loads of brick slip inspiration in this post as well as invaluable information on selecting the right colours.
Brick slip Colour
You should aim to coordinate your brick slip colour with the entire room, not just the flooring or paintwork. Think about equipment and cupboards in the room, accent colours and work tops. The room scheme may have a style to adhere to or a colour scheme where only certain colours will match.
Brick slips once installed will last for many years so it is best to choose a colour that will stand the test of time.
The amount of natural light in your room may determine whether your brick slips need to reflect light (lighter colours) to make the room feel larger or if a darker colour will suit. A little known fact is that darker brick slips often show dirt more than lighter coloured brick slips. Of course our darker brick slips look wonderful, but this is a factor you may want to consider.
One great way of determining your colours and even textures is to create a brick slip mood board. See our post on creating a Mood Board here.
Once you have mood board in place, you will be more confident in adding and subtracting brick slip samples.
What a brick slip looks like on a computer screen compared how it will look in your home can be very different, in both colour and texture.
My tip is to always leave your brick slip samples in the installation space and live with them for at least a week or two. Make sure you move them around your room so that you can see what they look like in different lights. The result may surprise you!
Here are some brick slip colour combinations we’ve put together for inspiration.
The choice is yours!
At the end of the day, it is totally up to you which brick slip colour you go for. I love monochrome brick slips but you could be just as passionate about deep reds or buff brick slips.
One rule to follow is to make sure that your brick slips and flooring work well together, if you do this then it is much easier to decide on the rest of the room.
Colour is art, art is subjective so if all else fails just let your imagination run wild!
