Using brick veneer in interior and exterior design

Brick veneer adds character to any room by serving as a focal point or presenting itself as a backdrop that either compliments or contrasts the other design elements. Whether you want rustic or industrial, the use of brick veneer adds beauty and texture to an otherwise bland room. Below are a few uses for brick veneer.

Adds texture

By using brick veneer in your home decor, you are adding warmth, texture and character to a room that otherwise would be dull and have the same pattern. Brick is also a great counterpart in modern bathrooms, varying the texture in the room – modern versus rustic. It is most commonly used in minimalist industrial decor, as the brick and unpolished flooring create an abandoned warehouse look, which is quite popular today. White brick veneer creates a modern yet cosy atmosphere in a room, perfect for sitting with the family or curled up with a good book.

Focal point

Brick veneer is arguably at its best when it’s the focal point of a room, and a fireplace is perfect for this especially when there’s plain walls either side of it. If you use white brick veneer, it can help make the room feel cosier and warmer, making it the place that everyone wants to relax in. If you use traditional brick, it will become more industrial and chic, an ideal choice for anyone who wants to keep up with the latest trends.

Veneer wall

Using brick veneer to decorate a large space is an excellent way to add visual interest without compromising the brightness or openness of the space. If you have a family room or bedroom and don’t want the walls to be bland and boring, brick veneer provides that feeling of an older home on new walls while still welcoming the openness. A single brick wall is a great focal point that will help make a room seem less undefined and give a loft vibe to it.

Extravagant exterior

By using brick veneer on the exterior of your home, you can add flair and personality while also giving it a sense of stability. Even if you only decide to use a little bit of brick veneer, it will make your house stand out in the neighbourhood and give you that unique industrial look.

Other uses

One use can be the basement if you want to transform it into a creative studio or ‘rec room’. White brick veneer can make the room look airier and brighter than what it actually is, due to the lack of windows. Another use is brick veneer doorframes if you want to add a bit of drama into your decor. Using brick veneer is the perfect way to bring a natural feel and element into a home if you don’t want a full brick wall.
