"When most people think of a brick wall, they think of old-timey house, rather than modern-day homes. Although these two design styles may seem contradictory, they can actually work well together. An interior brick wall helps add a bit of texture to a wall that may otherwise seem too bland. Brick, being the classic material it is, also holds a level of timelessness that allows a home to stay fashionable throughout the decades.
Here’s a bit of history: In the late 1900s, many old homes were struggling to remain presentable. The walls were stripping away, and people found it too expensive to repair or replace the damaged plaster. The solution—exposing the wall, showing off the bricks. This way, people did not have to worry about trying to maintain the appearance of the wall through such costly means. Exposed brick can last a long time without many complications. In the end, this was the best option at the time, and it quickly became a fashionable addition to the home. This design was not just popular for its cheapness—it also adds a certain charm and industrial feel to the home.
An exposed brick wall can offer a sense of history in a modern home. It can be comforting and give one a connection to the past. It can also create a sense of sturdiness that can help someone feel secure and calm. Brick wall décor also adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the room. It gives a glance at your personality, suggesting strength and tradition. It can also just be a great way to spice up a room, rather than going with the usual, bland drywall or glass.
Many people are hesitant to try out a brick wall for their home. This is because they often picture layers of brown or reddish bricks in their home. While this is still a doable option, brick walls can come in other colors, such as white. Usually, you can paint a brown/red brick wall white, or you can buy white painted bricks that are ready for use."
