Bricks are essential building material. And while they are usually hidden behind plaster and paint, they can add a touch of uniqueness and quirky design to your home! Bricks can actually add a touch of the old to your new home – and they can also draw attention! And we have brought for you today – 9 brick wall ideas that can serve as design elements for your home décor:
#1: Brick walls as a centerpiece lend a certain old world charm to the room. While the rest of it is kept subdued and monochromatic, the bricks act as an attention grabber and are a great stylistic element.
#2: Bricks painted in the same color as the rest of the room blend in and yet stand out at the same time. Here you can see that the neutral shades of beige and cream are highlighted by the bricks being the same color.
#3: Repeat the brick work – use it to accentuate more than just the walls for a nice touch. An example is the wall and the fireplace here.
#4: Break the monotony of white or any other color that is repeated a bit with some rustic brick backdrops. In this kitchen, the white and silver appliances find the perfect backdrop in that lovely brick wall!
#5: Distress painted brick backgrounds can also add a very nice feel to your rooms. They lend it a cool and not-overworked feel.
#6: If you have exposed brick along the living room or other such room walls, do not take the trouble to cover them up. Exposed brick can serve as a great focal point in any well furnished and otherwise done up room! In this case the brick has been used as an accent throughout the room – as a background for all the rest.
#7: Paint over exposed brick with a nice uniform color that matches the rest of the room to lend a touch of modernity to even a brick lined room! In fact, in this living room you can see just how the black paint totally lifts the entire scene!
#8: You can also use the brick juxtaposed with a modern décor otherwise to create the perfect amalgamation between the new and the old. And you can see that displayed to perfection here.
#9: The final idea is to take brick and use it to depict exactly what it stands for – rustic simplicity. In this case you can just leave the exposed brick as it is and support it with rustic and simplistic wooden furniture – nothing too futuristic.
