What Are Brick Tiles?

Having an exposed wall in your home or business is becoming more and more popular. The warmth and interesting patterns and textures of the wall makes its appearance timeless. Exposed brick can add character to any room and if you are using exposed brick in your businesses, the exposed wall can make your business more welcoming. Exposed brick is something that you can be proud of. However, you may be sitting there thinking that exposing a brick wall can be expensive and time consuming. Fortunately, achieving this beautiful look has never been more affordable and easy to achieve. Using brick tiles cut from real bricks is an affordable and efficient way to restyle your home or business, both internally and externally.

Brick tiles are thin slices of brick that are cut from full size real bricks. They are extremely versatile and can be used on both internal and external walls. They can be applied to any surface in any room. Once the brick tiles have been installed, they give the appearance of a genuine brick wall. In fact, once you have finished installing the brick tiles, it will be difficult to tell the difference between your new tiled wall to a regular brick wall. Even though a brick tiled wall doesn't have the structural strength of a regular wall, it does provide the same aesthetically pleasing look.

Using brick tiles is more convenient than using a full-sized brick. This is because they are easy to install. Unlike real bricks where you have to stack the bricks on top of each other and secure them with mortar, brick tiles can be installed to an existing wall using glue or mortar. This will save both time and money, in that you don't have to build the wall from scratch and you don't need to hire a professional to install the brick tiles if you don't want to. Thus, saving you money.

How Do Brick Tiles Work?

One of the main reasons that brick tiles are becoming more popular is the fact they are extremely cost effective. Brick tiles mean that you can install them yourself. You don't need to hire a professional, thus, saving you money. Installing brick tiles will be one of the most straight forward DIY projects that you do. All you need to do to install the brick tiles is to position them on your wall in horizontal lines, apply an adhesive and set the brick tiles in place. Using matching corner tiles will ensure you achieve that perfect finish. For more information on how easy it is to install your brick tiles, you should take a look at our installation guide.

What Can You Use Brick Tiles For?

As we have already stated, brick tiles are extremely versatile. In fact, they are so versatile that you can use a brick tile wherever you can use a real brick. Here are a few ideas of where you can use brick tiles:

  • Bathrooms: Make one wall a feature wall or outline the bathroom door frame.
  • Living Rooms: Create a feature wall to add warmth to your living room.
  • Kitchens: Make your kitchen more interesting and homely by adding an exposed wall.
  • External Walls: Use brick tiles to make your garden stand out from your neighbours.
  • Coffee Shops & Restaurants: Create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
  • Offices: Exposed walls in an office can help create a relaxed atmosphere and make your office a more interesting place to work.

As you can see from the list above, you can use brick tiles anywhere you can think of. Whilst they do not have the same structural integrity of a regular brick wall, brick tiles do give you the same insulation as real bricks. This means that they are energy efficient and will help retain heat. By installing brick tiles, you will also gain a bit of valuable floor space due to the brick tiles being thinner than regular bricks.
