UK sales of brick slips are steadily on the rise, real brick effect tiles which are made from real clay bricks are becoming extremely popular?
Can I not just use brick wallpaper?
At least one house on every street will have wallpaper. Although wallpaper is a very British tradition, it does fail on many levels especially when it comes to creating a brick wall effect.
Brick work is way of bringing an enhanced texture to a surface. Conveying a sense of history, functionality and solidarity.
This unique realism can only be achieved by using real brick effect tiles, cut from real brick. The biggest drawback is that brick effect wallpaper offers no texture and very little realism when compared to real brick.
What is the benefit?
Real clay brick tiles often appear rough and rugged, that certainly doesn’t mean they can’t also be elegant and contemporary.
The main benefit is true realism, when our products are installed using every component the tiles are indistinguishable from a real brick wall. This is because every product that we offer is expertly cut from real clay bricks.
As hard wearing as real brick each of our brick slips has the same surface strength as a full brick. This means that you can drill them, screw into them and use them for hanging pictures and shelves. Weight limitations are only limited by the substrate underneath the wall.
What is the most popular look?
The Manhattan loft look is one of the most sought after and desired effects that can be achieved using brick slips. One of our most popular products for this look is the Olde Bayswater. With its rumbled edges, uneven surface and patchwork of tainted and scared surfaces this product creates the distressed look with ease.
Monochrome is also a very popular look. Silver Grey brick slips and Monsoon brick slips create a modern contemporary look whilst still retaining the texture and feel of a solid brick wall.
