Bricks are reliable materials that can be used as surface finishes for your home. It doesn’t matter what your style is–be it modern or classic–if you need a touch of texture, warmth, and a bit of rusticity, brick walls can be amazing combination with any interior. Walls made of bricks also help on stabilizing the temperature inside your home.

Whether you are renovating or planning to spruce up your space, consider these ideas and incorporate bricks to your interior.

Roman Brick Wall

Roman bricks are usually longer and narrower than the standard brick size. Interior designer Brill Flores-Sanchez retained the existing brick wall in the dining area of this penthouse in Caloocan City. To pair well with the wall, wooden and antique furniture pieces are also added to accent the rustic feel of the space.

Brick Panels

Instead of a plain white wall, interior designer Diana Zamora opted for white faux brick panels for the living room, making a pretty contrast with the opposite wall covered in black wallpaper. These panels can be DIY'd by adding grooves to standard plyboard panels.

If exposed brick wall is not in your options, you can still pull off a rustic charm by putting up faux brick walls. Install brick hardboard panel to your wall and paint it with white. To help you get started, follow these steps.
