57 Spectacular interiors with exposed brick walls

Exposed Brick Walls-01-1 Kindesign

Incorporating exposed brick walls into any interior design scheme can be very effective if its tone and finish flows with the other materials being used. They became popular back in the late 1900’s since most homeowners found that it was less expensive to expose the brick in older homes and converted warehouses then to just repair or replace the damaged plasterwork. This look infuses character and rustic charm into any interior space, creating more of an industrial appeal. Traditionally exposed brick walls are found in lofts and historic buildings, but this trendy look can be achieved in any living space. If you don’t live in an old building, you can still simulate the look with a little work, either by yourself or by hiring a contractor.

Available in a wide range of sizes, shapes, colors and textures, brick can provide high style or a common touch. A variety of colors can give more character and is much more likely to occur naturally in handmade bricks. Old bricks with the patina of age can fit best into any design scheme. Some bricks can absorb like a sponge when painted, but as soon as they are sealed they effectively become plasticized. Whenever possible, it’s best to leave them untreated. If you do plan to paint brick, make sure you select a color you can live with, otherwise it can be messy to sandblast bricks back to their original state. We have collected a variety of interior spaces with exposed brick to help inspire you to create your own beautiful interior. Enjoy!

    I had brick veneer installed in my home. I would never again live in a house or apartment without exposed brick…it’s a “must have.”
