Clara, who is Head of Design here at Home Tales, has recently featured in KKB magazine. As home renovation and extension specialists, we are frequently asked for advice from magazines and publications. In this latest issue, we feature on the ‘Ask The Experts’ segment. Clara oversees our Design department and she offers advice on achieving an exposed brick wall finish.
What’s the best way of exposing a wall to achieve an exposed brick wall effect in a kitchen?
There are a variety of ways to achieve an exposed brick finish. One option is to strip back the layers on your existing wall to reveal the original brick. It’s worth doing a patch test to ensure the bricks are in good condition. Another option is to demolish the wall and rebuild it from scratch. The most cost-efficient solution are brick tiles. These look like a thin brick, and you place them directly onto your existing wall.
