Renovating an old house or trying to give a unique look to your home? A brick wall could solve interior design problems within budget by bringing industrial, rustic or uber cool look to different parts of your house. There are several looks that one can adopt from Mediterranean cool to Scandinavian low-key library or even an industrial style bedroom with snowy throws and French windows. While the classic bright red brick adds warmth and style to the living room and kitchen, textured grey provides a cool backdrop for a rustic bedroom. Take a peek at these inspirational brick wall ideas that are a combination of natural, distressed and even wallpapered with brick design. 

1. Kitchen wall

This is a renovated home at the heart of PJ city in which much of the old details were retained to sustain its old world charm and the facade was treated with a different look. The renovation was done to accentuate good features of the and combine it with new spaces through contrasting approaches. The home was restructured with open-plan design to ensure effective natural ventilation and here one can envision the old wall that still separates kitchen from living and dining region.

2. Brick living room wall

Refusing to add plaster to this section of the living room wall has given it a stylish accent wall that adds depth to the region. Minimalist furniture and light toned furnishings bring character to this minimalist living room

3. Corridor / Walkway for a tropical home

This walkway on the upper floor of the house was designed with bricks and wooden slots to allow the cool air and natural air to be drawn in and keep the upper bedrooms cool during hot tropical summers.

This bold and industrial style environment was created by combing unfinished touches with strong and steady decorative elements. This dining area motivates the inhabitants that life is a journey of continuous improvement and joy through industrial style lighting arrangements. If exposed brick is not something you appreciate then brick veneers can be used which look realistic enough. These veneers are commonly used in kitchens, basements and libraries to give rustic touch and to transform the region which lacks windows.  

5. Bathroom with a glass roof

This region has all the touches of a modern bathroom and a unique glass roof to allow plenty of light and bring an aura of spaciousness. The concept of 'Less is enough' is evident in the brick walls, stone shower wall and floor. To adopt this simple style bathroom designers have added granite fittings and minimalist decor which cut down clutter and has left plenty of open space in the region.

6. Statement with a brick wall

Exposed brick wall as a design element will never go out of fashion. Painting it black here has helped to create calming atmosphere and perfect backdrop for the television in the entertainment room. It also complements the wood floors, high ceiling and dark toned furniture. Accent lights and natural light from the window showcase its unevenness and  create a powerful focal point in the area. 

7. Cozy library

This beautifully restored house required a cozy reading nook and the same has been designed artfully close to the staircase connecting both levels. The top-lit towering library built adjoining the stairway is easily reachable from all levels. The exposed brick wall across the library adds old world charm to the reading nook and home.

8. Aesthetic bedroom

You need not paint or smooth out a distressed brick wall but can decorate with carefully selected decor pieces like eclectic art here. The unpolished brick walls across the room adds to the illusion of space. The creamy white wall tones have helped in creating  calming atmosphere in partnership with other wooden elements in the room like the bed and floor. The white chiffon curtains separating it from balcony and interspersed against the windows open up the room exposing it to natural light.
