Thin Brick Wall

Are you an architect or designer always on the lookout for ways to create impact for your clients? Are you a homeowner living in a space that lacks a strong focal point? Or are you just tired of looking at the same old walls in your home or office? You could repaint or put up some wallpaper…but why not breathe architectural character into your space with the stunning beauty of real brick? It’s easier, faster, and tidier than you think to create an authentic brick feature wall in a home, office, or commercial property. The answer is thin brick.

Authentic thin bricks have become increasingly popular in interior design, offering a unique way to add texture, warmth, and character to any room. While using full-sized bricks to create an interior feature wall would likely require structural changes to support and accommodate the weight of the bricks, thin brick walls are lighter due to their narrower profile. Also adding to their ease of installation is the fact that they install with thinset mortar — just like wall tile: there’s no demolition mess, no need for wall reinforcement, and no mason is required. And although thin bricks are durable enough for exterior facades, floors, and outdoor spaces like patios, they are just as suitable for creating brick interior features, such as feature walls, fireplace surrounds, and backsplashes.

Also referred to sometimes as “thin brick wall tiles,” thin bricks can be made of a variety of materials, including concrete, but the best choices are those made of authentic brick, especially those from Royal Thin Brick, whose parent company has been in the brickmaking business since the Civil War era. There are a world of possibilities when it comes to transforming your space with a thin brick wall or other architectural or design feature.

Exploring the Beauty and Versatility of Authentic Thin Bricks

Depending on their style, they can add warm, rustic charm, an industrial loft energy, or urbane sophistication. Versatile thin bricks like Royal Thin Brick create an aesthetic that can transform the look and feel of your home or office.

Whether you prefer a classic red or a sleek charcoal black, a weathered texture or a smoother appearance, there is a thin brick option for every design preference.

What is Authentic Thin Brick?

Authentic thin bricks are made from clay and other natural materials, ensuring their durability and longevity, unlike some faux brick products which are made from concrete. Royal Thin Bricks are extruded, not pressed. Pressed clay thin bricks may be more porous and not suitable for exterior applications or interior applications where moisture is present. Typically measuring around ½ to ⅝ inches in thickness, thin bricks are less expensive than full sized bricks and can be easily installed with thinset and mortared like tile. The low profile (ours are ⅝’)’, that allows them to fit in places traditional bricks cannot. Thin brick can be used in new construction or in remodels and are offered in a variety of colors, face sizes, textures, and finishes, allowing you to create a unique design statement.

Authentic thin brick gives your home or office an instant aesthetic boost. Whether you want to add warmth and charm to your living room or kitchen or create an economical and easy-to-install brick feature in an office or commercial property, thin bricks provide endless possibilities.

Enhancing Your Interior Design with a Thin Brick Accent Wall

When you want to add a texture and interest to your interior design, a brick accent wall can be the perfect solution. This versatile design element allows you to bring the timeless beauty and warmth of real bricks into a space without the need for major construction.

A thin brick accent wall creates a focal point that instantly adds character to any room. Whether you choose to cover an entire wall, create a dividing wall, or highlight an architectural feature, brick makes an undeniable impact.

One of the great advantages of using thin bricks is their flexibility in terms of color and pattern options. Reds and browns evoke a classic look while cool gray offers something more contemporary. In addition to single color pallets, the designers at Royal Thin Brick have created beautiful color blends for added visual interest.

When designing a thin brick accent wall, consider its placement within the room. A well-placed wall can visually expand small spaces or create separation between different areas in an open floor plan. Also, think about how it will complement other elements in your decor such as furniture, flooring, and lighting fixtures.

Remember that installing a thin brick accent wall requires careful planning and proper installation. If you’re a homeowner considering DIY, be sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions and use manufacturer-recommended grout and other installation materials.
