Let There Be Light With Brick Slips
Talk to any interior designer and they will tell you to use light colours if you want to add light to a room, especially those spaces that lack light. They might say that you need to use neutral paint or wallpaper that encourages light to bounce around the room. The same goes for Brick Slips, Of course, it all makes sense but why do we always have to go back to the same old options when it comes to improving light? It seems as though we are stuck in a bit of a rut and that doesn’t mean that we are against using the right colour paint or wallpaper to brighten up a room but we do believe that we have the next best thing – Brick Slips
How Do Brick Slips Help With Light?
If you didn’t know, brick slips are thin strips of real bricks that have been cut lengthways. What this gives is the appearance of a full brick but it also means that they don’t have to be installed like bricks. Therefore, all you need is an adhesive and then you can attach them to the wall much like tiles. What’s more, they come in a variety of shades, including neutral shades ensuring you can find the colour you want. For example we offer the London Weathered Yellow Brick Slips, Restoration Yellow Brick Slips and Tamsia Blend Brick Slips.
Brick Slips and Light
Brick slips are a suitable solution for a range of rooms, regardless of the size. However, if you are looking to enhance the feeling of light, then commonly this is a problem that you experience with small rooms or rooms with small windows. Despite this, the light tones and shades of brick slips will enable you to give your room a brighter look and feel. If you opt for the London Weathered Yellow Brick Slips, they will do the same job as light paint or wallpaper while the Tasmia Band Brick Slips will also have the same effect.
If possible, the brick slips should be installed opposite any windows as this will ensure that light hits the brick slips directly although if this is not possible then that is not a problem. With the use of mirrors, you can direct light around the room, ensuring that your brick tiles really catch the eye and add light to your room.
Even when there is a lack of natural light, the brighter appearance is the reason why brick tiles work in spaces that are dark and gloomy. The aim is to go for the lightest possible colour as this will enable you to bring the room to life while also adding a touch of style and elegance.
Brick tiles are extremely versatile yet many people still do not understand that they are a feasible option when it comes to lighting. When you consider neutral paint, it doesn’t offer the same look as brick slips, especially when you consider the textures and appearance and that is why brick tiles are becoming a popular choice. So, if you’re looking to improve lighting and style your room at the same time, brick slips are all you need.
