Explore the Softer Side: 3 Ways to Use Industrial-Style Brick in Your Home

Known for it's durability, industrial strength, and low maintenance characteristics, we often see Architects and Designers gravitate toward Brick for commercial projects, but don't let Brick's industrial aesthetic keep you from overlooking it as an option for your home–because like those of us who can't help but pet a cute dog walking by, Brick has a softer side.

Depending on the style you are going for, Brick can work just about anywhere.  We recommend this sturdy material for everything from kitchen backsplashes, and accent walls to shower surrounds and even flooring!  Still nervous?  Here are 3 sure-fire ways to incorporate Brick into your homely abode.

Keep it light
We often associate lighter hues with words such as soft, natural, and welcoming, and the same can be said for our Brick colors Lewis Range, White Mountains, Big Horn and Klamath. These light hues add a sense of softness to the naturally industrial quality of Brick.  The installation below creates a soft and welcoming blend with our Brick hues, White Mountains and Lewis Range to add dimension and warmth to this traditional setting.

Try a fresh take on a classic style
Arranging our Brick in a classic offset pattern is a great way to freshen up an otherwise traditional space.  We love how this rustic kitchen installation mimics a classic white subway tile backsplash with our bright white Brick color, Lewis Range. The Brick creates puts a contemporary spin on a timeless design, creating a look that will last a lifetime, in both durability and style.
