Exposed Brick: 10 Great Spaces

I love the look of exposed brick. It has a wonderful texture that adds a rustic coziness and unassuming charm to any space. The look is popular in industrial lofts, but it has a lot of versatility that makes it suit many different styles. Whether you let its natural color show or paint it, its imperfect lines and texture can bring a lot of character to any room in a home, even as just a small feature such as one wall or an archway. If you have exposed brick in your home and aren’t sure how to make the most of it, here are some inspiring rooms to give you some ideas.

5 The rounded exposed brick arch serves as a perfect space divider between the bedroom and living room in this open floor plan. Not only is it aesthetically eyecatching, but it also helps keep the two rooms visually separate.

    Because I love brick interiors, I can not find a favorite. However, I dislike 1,4 and 6. The others all work for the decorating style they background.
