With so many options out there, choosing the right bricks for your home can be difficult!
Where To Start
Step 1: Style
When choosing the style, it’s important to know what you want your house design to look like, as this will be a strong influence on the style of bricks you choose whether this be rustic, traditional or beachie.
Step 2: Colour & Textures
When deciding on which colour to use, make sure you consider every element of your house such as the roof, guttering, frames and doors. Remember that texture provides alot of character and different brick laying styles are an option.
Step 3: Size
There are so many options when it comes to size, despite the consistent popularity of the standard 76mm x 230mm. You can always choose different sizes for feature walls, trimmings, fireplaces and structural design elements.
Step 4: Location
The type of bricks you require may be subject to where you live. Different conditions require different materials. Somewhere on the beach will be different to a house in the desert.
Step 5: Mortar
The thickness of the mortar joint, combined with the colour can change the appearance of the bricks substantially. There are a few options here including raked,rolled, ironed or flush.
