Designing Brick Kitchens for Your Style Home
Thinking about designing a kitchen with Brick? We couldn’t agree more!
Brick is a timeless material for a stylish kitchen. And good thing, for as durable as Brick is, you can count on it lasting for decades to come. Kitchens are the heart of your home interior and they also tend to get the most wear and tear of any room in the house, so durability and style are both essential, making Brick an easy choice.
How you choose to use Glazed Thin Brick is up to you, but we’re here to walk you through our favorite Brick kitchen ideas depending on your house design.
Nothing spells rustic kitchen quite as much as Brick. Exposed Brick walls create an instant country look to pair with natural hardwoods, working hearths, and washed-out kitchen colors.
Bright neutrals work well in farmhouse kitchens and with so many to choose from, from warm whites to cool greys and several in between, you’re guaranteed to find a glaze to soak up the sun in your well-lit kitchen.
Herringbone Brick floors are another no-brainer for the farmhouse style, adding both utilitarian appeal and sophisticated detail to a bucolic abode.
An exposed brick kitchen isn’t just reserved for rural regions. At home in the city, country and suburbs too, brick walls fit in almost anywhere no matter the period of your home, a testament to Brick’s longevity as a medium. Traditional kitchens are practically begging for Brick.
While classic red Brick is a natural choice for traditional kitchens, a glaze can help you match a backsplash to stone countertops, give a kitchen island the eye-catching weight to anchor a spacious room, or complement ornate fixtures without stealing the show.
Mid Century Modern Kitchens
In many mid-century homes, living rooms are the first to get the love. There are a ton of design ideas to fit the space. But a modern kitchen comes with its own distinct charm, and Brick is an excellent choice to capture the look of the era as well as your guests' attention.
Clad a kitchen island in a fun Glazed Thin Brick for a functional eat-in kitchen that holds up to daily use and saves the formal dining room for special occasions.
In galley kitchens tight on space, a Brick backsplash makes a big impact in the narrow real estate between the counters and cabinets.
Matched with stainless steel appliances, Brick with a sleek glaze gives a contemporary kitchen an organic detail to go with the clean lines and minimalist kitchen cabinets.

Whether your kitchen is bright white or bold black, Glazed Thin Brick with boldness of its own can match the palate without getting missed among the oversized accents that grace today’s contemporary designs.
Raw, organic, and unbound by conformity, eclectic homes feel inviting and full of adventurous inspiration. Brick hits all the right notes in eclectic kitchens that play host to creative vibes and meals made with love.
Add an earthy color Brick to bring out the natural energy of the home. Try a neutral to balance bold colors and interior accents that mash-up masks from Africa against throws from South America. Or be daring with the Brick itself, with a color that can’t be ignored. Eclectic kitchens don’t play by any rules and we’re all for it.
