The convenience of brick wall cladding is nothing dissimilar to many products and services that are now available in this busy world which we all live in.
As we push a quarter way through the 21st century the world is ever more driven by convenience and ease. We spend more time experiencing the joys of life and less time on the more mundane tasks of life. In short we have come to expect instant results for less effort.
Why spend 2 hours in Tesco every Saturday morning when you can place your order in 10min online to be delivered as soon as same day.
The world is a rapidly changing place, most have the increased demands of work and family to consider. When purchasing convenience is often the biggest deciding factor when making purchases.
Brick wall cladding popularity
Brick wall cladding using brick slips has seen a rise in popularity over recent years. In part this is down to popular culture and the influence it has on our buying habits. Americana styles, US TV shows, films and commercials frequently depict a relaxed urban look.
Most TV sets feature exposed brick work and that New York loft style look. This is a style that is relaxed, youthful and mirrors the attitude and creativity of modern designers.
These styles have drifted into retail, restaurants and offices as designers realise the versatility that brickwork brings when designing a space.
All this being said, brick slip cladding owes its popularity primarily to its convenience and ease.
A convenient modern product
It is safe to say, most house bricks lack character and can often look underwhelming. The great thing about brick wall cladding is that there is no hardened fast rule. You can have whatever brick you like inside your home and it is as easy as installing a standard tile.
Brick slips are by far the most popular form of brick wall cladding, they stick to the wall using tile adhesive just like standard tiling. Brick slips are spaced out using tile spacers, just like tiling. The only difference on installation is that you point up the joints rather than grout the joint. Other than that brick slips offer the ultimate convenience when creating an internal brick slip feature wall.
