When opting to live in a converted industrial building, it is often the huge amounts of open plan space, the high ceilings, the large windows, the cast-iron columns and the exposed brick walls that appeal to the inhabitants. Warehouses and lofts are brimming with character and it’s the original features that most people find attractive.
Converted warehouses have inspired a new design aesthetic that is now being replicated in all kinds of homes. You don’t have to live in an industrial building to enjoy some of the design elements that are found in those homes.
Modern technology is allowing us to recreate that look quite effortlessly and with a budget that won’t break the bank. Exposed brick is probably one of the most attractive elements of converted industrial buildings but also one of the easiest to replicate.
Digital printing now allows for photo-realistic reproductions of materials and surfaces that might be found in former industrial buildings. Here, we would like to show you how to get the look of exposed brickwork by using wallpaper and wall murals instead. Save yourself time, money and effort by adorning your walls with these highly realistic wallcoverings.
Rebel Walls is a Swedish wallpaper company that has a wide range of imitation brickwork wallpapers and wall murals. They range from a simple red brick wall to a wall that is half concrete, half brick.
Murals Wallpaper is another great source of faux brick wallpaper. Their murals capture the faux-brick effects through HD photography and then utilise modern digital printing techniques. The prints can then be hung just like normal wallpaper, and make a stunningly unique impact.
The Textures Collection from Surface View is another great source of inspiration when it comes to creating the exposed brick look in your home.
