Get the Manhattan loft look in your home with white painted brick
Exposed brickwork is always a sought after design element and we often associate it with history which makes a space feel warm, homely and full of character. But colour doesn’t always have to be bold to be beautiful. White painted brick is one of the most striking ways of achieving a modern look that is as crisp and clean as it is timeless and elegant.
A white painted brick feature will enhance any room by showcasing the material’s natural texture in a different way. Bold brick elements like fireplaces can be made to feel less obtrusive when painted white and it is a great way of making any space feel lighter, brighter and more open.
When it comes to design the simplest solutions are often the most elegant and the fresh, bright look of white painted brick will always bring a touch of effortless chic to any room.
Manhattan white brick slips
Our Manhattan White brick slips are a great solution when considering a white painted brick feature.
With its striking white appearance, the Manhattan is one of our most popular products and it’s easy to see why. Cut from our Manhattan White Bricks, these slips have a semi-heavy to heavy texture finish and colours that can only be achieved through a process that has been perfected specifically for this traditional stone brick.
Building on the growing demand for a truly contemporary looking white brick slip, our Manhattan White brick slips are perfect for creating that classic New York style that is instantly recognisable.
We’d suggest pointing these slips with a natural white pointing mortar for the best results.
Why not give it a go?
Brick slips are far easier to install than most people think and more and more of our customers are giving it a go themselves. So if you’re thinking of decorating and feel like rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in then we’re here to help.
Samples of all our slips are available to order and installation couldn’t be easier. The process is very similar to tiling using a rapid setting tile adhesive and brick slip spacers. Once the adhesive has cured it can be pointed using a gun injected pointing mortar. The process is quick, easy and efficient and we sell everything you’ll need to complete the job. And for the budding DIY enthusiast the beauty of brick slips is that perfection is in the imperfections!
We offer a free detailed pdf installation guide and our friendly team of advisers is only a phone call away if you have any queries.
