Brick Tiles – Re-interpretation of the classic urban look.
The latest trend in the tile world, is Brick Tiles. Naturally they are made in various sizes. The traditional 230x76mm is strongly represented. Other sizes include 203×57, used mostly in America. And 106x73mm seen in South Africa. The oldest brick discovered was made of mud, dating back to 7500BC. So the Brick is as much a part of our culture, and therefore worthy of compliment.
As Brick Tiles is truly a beautiful trend, it is important to remember, that there are brick tiles and then there are brick tiles!
Brick tile made to size.
Brick tile come in many different sizes. From the elongated rectangles, to the tiny micro-bricks, that are a close cousin to the tesserae. They even borrow from the honeycomb trend, to produce interesting patterns.
Given the large variety of bricks out there, it follows that the spectrum of brick tile will be as diverse. Today’s brick tile also reflect the architectural styles throughout central Europe, with all her castles, villages and villas. As a result, there is plenty of natural inspiration out there, to draw from.
Their application is just as diverse as the styles they are made in. Brick tiles can make a strong statement in urban bars and cafes. Brick tiles can be used to bring the outdoors inside, either as a wall tile or a floor tile. Ideal for the home kitchen splash-back. Use the Brick look tile in the bedroom as a feature wall, to add warmth and create mood.
