Learn the 6 Things to Consider When Choosing a Tile Backsplash

Reasons to Install a Brick Backsplash Using Glazed Thin Brick

Durability

Brick is known for its strength and lifespan and our handmade Glazed Thin Brick Tile is no exception. Brick has an impressive breaking strength of 626 lbs and glazed brick is easier to clean food and other messes than raw red brick.

Refined Rustic Style

The classic exposed red brick wall is a huge plus for home and business owners and installing a brick backsplash instantly gives your kitchen bathroom or commercial space rugged texture and distinct style.

Glazed thin brick can offer a similar historic charm with the advantage of beautiful glazes in 36 all-natural and lead-free colors to capture any style or color palette.

Better for the Environment and Your Budget

Glazed Thin Brick is substantially lighter than traditional glazed brick, resulting in potentially an 85% cost and emissions reduction.

Easier to Install

Since thin brick is substantially lighter than real brick, it is easier to transport and install. Thin brick is installed similar to our ceramic or glass tile using tile adhesive and grout.

Thin brick is easier to work around obstacles and fit to specific dimensions since an installer can cut the brick with a standard tile cutter.
