The brick wall trend

In many cases, choosing a colour to paint the walls of a house is a really complicated decision. In addition, those who wish to decorate their home in a different and original way, find a paint colour but later change their mind and don't feel like using it. This is probably the main reason why the brick colour has become a trend lately.

Obviously, when one speaks of brick, it does not mean that we are referring to the traditional brick, but to one specifically designed to make it look aesthetically pleasing and that, in addition, has adequate resistance not to break or crack. On the other hand, the rise of this decorative element has also contributed to the fact that Nordic decorative styles have opted for the brick trend when decorating the most minimalist spaces.

It is clear that the minimalist style occupies a place of privilege among the tastes of the decorators because it combines elegance and functionality in equal parts. Therefore, and considering that the brick design fits perfectly in both large and small spaces, it is not surprising that you are enjoying its success. Undoubtedly, a good example is this brand new apartment for rent in ​​Torre de Madrid, which has a bedroom, two bathrooms and 136 square metres of living space.

In this property, it is possible to observe that the brick is capable of giving personality and character to any space in which it is placed. In addition, since it invites you to leave it in sight and not cover it with furniture or decorative pieces, it fits perfectly with the minimalist style already mentioned. And no doubt, no room or wall transmits the feeling of being empty even if there is no element that accompanies it.

Another one of the great attractions of the brick design is that it makes it easier to make the spaces look bigger than they really are, something that specialises in the Nordic and Scandinavian style. Also, do not forget that this type of wall hardly gets dirty. Quite the opposite happens with graffiti, which must be cleaned often and even after some time, the paint is removed.

If you add all this original and warm rustic touch to any house together with decorative vintage aesthetics, it is easy to understand the reasons why brick walls like those that appear in the house used as an example are so fashionable. No doubt, an option you should keep in mind if you are considering remodeling your home.
