At Expert Roofing in Chicago, we love the look of your brick homes. We admire them as we climb atop your roofs. Occasionally we get a glimpse inside but there is usually less brick to be seen in there but we love the exposed brick look. If you have it you can make it work for in your home!
Exposed Brick – 14 Reasons to Love the Look – Bob Vila Exposed brick brings texture, color, and a rustic vibe to interior spaces. The look, which is typically achieved by removing the plaster from a wall to reveal the underlying masonry, offers an artful and affordable solution for revitalizing empty walls, awkward alcoves, or boring backsplashes throughout the home. Brick by brick, these exemplary rooms showcase the rugged beauty—and sheer versatility—of the timeless material.
Designed by The Ransom Company, this mixed-media bathroom blends modern and rustic design elements for an ambience that manages to be both homey and elegant. The playful herringbone floor tile and sophisticated marble-top vanity add textural variety to the all-white wainscoting, shower, and commode. But it’s the unexpected presence of classic red exposed brick, complemented by sleek pendant lights, that dazzles the eye with laid-back charm.
Even a material as bold as brick doesn’t have to stick out like a sore thumb. For proof, look no further than this harmonious kitchen, masterfully brought to life by Tal Design. The softly weathered brick backsplash blends seamlessly with the copper-hued range hood, fully stocked wooden floating shelves, and butcher-block kitchen island, making a subtle statement in this high-traffic space.
To lend a playful contrast to hardworking spaces, opt for multicolored brick instead of monochromatic brick that’s color-matched to its surroundings. In this cozy kitchen designed by Herlong & Associates, a brick backsplash in complementary hues of white, brown, and gray serves as an eclectic counterpart to the wood floors, island, and chocolate-colored ceiling beams.
Industrial Meets Antique
Industrial-style appliances and pendant lights, coupled with a sleek ebony countertop, lend drama to this high-ceilinged kitchen designed by SLC Interiors. Even so, it’s the unabashed use of dark brick on the sky-high back wall that provides the perfect counterpoint to the ceiling flourishes and grand-scale Victorian-style painting.
While brick is best known for its ruddy complexion, the earthy material comes in more than one shade, and can be color-matched to practically any interior. In this dreamy bedroom visualized by Renew Urban, whitewashed brick, elegant off-white linens and cushions, and a warm gray area rug set a soothing color palette that’s ideal for sleep or studying.
