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.
Great Spaces with Exposed Brick
1 Exposed brick painted white serves as a stylish backdrop to this contemporary kitchen, juxtaposing the smooth lines.
2 The rich color of the exposed brick accent wall blends well with the bold accents of the space, all grounded by a neutral base.
3 The magnificent original ceiling, brick walls, and window trim speak of this living room’s rich history. The traditional furniture in clean neutrals and soft textures juxtapose the rough architecture and create a beautiful, eye-catching space.
4 A contemporary dining set with turquoise accents really pops against the dark finish of the old exposed brick walls. Together, they compliment each other very well.
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.
6 Crisp, creamy crown molding adds an elegant statement and pops beautifully against the exposed brick walls. Some shelving creates the perfect spot to display accessories against the brick.
