ADD A TOUCH OF CHARM WITH INTERIOR BRICK VENEER

Looking to create vintage charm or add some modern elements to your home? Interior brick veneer is one of our staple products to adding touches of colour and texture to your space. Made with real brick, but thinner than those used for typical stonework construction, interior brick veneers have a maximum thickness of 1 and 1/4 inches and are often used to revive kitchen tiling or styling of an existing wall structure.

Combining Looks and Textures

Nowadays, natural wood and textured-stone themes are a dominating interior design trend, great for entertainment room paneling, living room or bedroom wall accents. Meshing natural elements together can bring in that outdoor feel, while keeping your interior look feeling authentic and consistent.

When choosing the style of your interior brick veneer, be strategic about what you install. For example, if wood is going to be a primary element, be sure to select a faux stone accent that won’t compete with your wood colour. Tastefully blending these elements together is key to achieving your look without overwhelming your space.

Look for a Dominant Brick Colour that Contrasts

Treat your brick colour just like you would carpet, fabric or paint colour. Brick accents with soft pink or light-red tones work well against antique whites, light yellows or cool greens. If you have yellow or beige-coloured brick, combine these with a warm brown hue, a cool gray or try blending your wall or colour with the shade found in your brick.

Keep in mind, the greater the contrast colour between your brick and your wall hue, the more attention you’ll draw to your brick accent. To tie your look together, consider also, including light touches of your brick colour in the fabrics or furniture you have in the room. If you find your dark-brick effect has a dominating effect on other adjoining walls, instead of painting those walls a lighter colour, choose a natural colour in the same tone range as your brick to create a more harmonized effect.

Choose Furniture Colours that Complement Your Brick

Whether you love your lofty, industrial-style apartment or you’ve got an elegant vintage-charm look to your home, interior brick veneer can be tougher to decorate against, especially if you’re looking to host a variety of colours that can help pull your entire look together. Here’s few furniture colour tips to keep in mind.

Dusty Blue: A light, dusty-blue coloured couch can be a great pairing against a red/orange toned interior brick veneer. When you want your brick to be the highlight of your room, cool blue tones can bring out your brick accent.

Pear Green: If you’ve got a darker shade of brown or red brick to work with, hanging canvases with green and yellow tones can be a great contrasting match to your statement-making veneer.

Bright Red: You might not think to match red with red, but sometimes playing against your reds (like a mahogany wood floor) with a red-tone brick wall accent can entirely bring out your primary red hue in the base of your brick.

Mustard Yellow: From your kitchen to your living room, a neutral mustard yellow is always an easy go-to for highlighting a warm, brown-toned brick veneer.
