Exposed brick walls were conceived with the industrial style back in the day, but these days there are so many types of them that it can be hard to decide which one to use for what kind of an interior design. There are lots of ways you can emulate the exposed brick wall aesthetic in your interior designs, but only few people know how to complement spaces with them. So today, we’ll be featuring 5 types of exposed brick walls and explain where you can use them.
1. Café style
The exposed brick wall used in this interior design is café styled. It features a lightly raw aesthetic that is highlighted by proper accent lighting. This type of exposed brick wall looks absolutely gorgeous in spaces that are shabby chic, urban and very casual in style. The distressed look used in such designs is what sets off an unfinished, raw appeal in all of these styles.
This particular exposed brick wall is all about emulating a homely look within the living room interior design. This is why it is lighter, brighter and rougher in texture then a typical exposed brick wall. The orangey shade imbues a comforting ambiance that is high on the cozy and low on the austerity. It’s the perfect selection for a space that needs some cozying up.
3. The burnt brick effect
Burnt bricks are an actual thing and this exposed brick wall definitely emulates the grittier edginess of their style. Although it is lighter in color than actual burnt bricks, the emphasis on the darker tones and multi-shade browns creates a sophisticated mood that complements the rustic look of the overall interior design.
White exposed brick walls are a toned down version of the original ones. They can also be applied as adhesives and wallpapers. They emulate a very sophisticated, urban chic aura that is just as elegant as it is impactful. If you’re looking for a low-key way to add personality to your interior designs then this is definitely it.
5. Subway tiles
Although these are not your typical exposed bricks, these tiles have the same edgy appeal – just with a bit more glaze. They can be used in bathrooms and kitchens (especially the backsplash) and are an excellent way to cover up walls without indulging in overdesigning.
