Over the past decade, exposed brick or stone veneer interiors have been on trend, infusing spaces with an industrial loft aesthetic or bringing a touch of rustic charm to contemporary homes. Interior designers love the versatility of exposed brick and stone as it effortlessly transitions across multiple styles from rustic minimalism to urban refinement. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, the natural texture and warm hues of exposed brick also elevates the overall ambiance with historical character.

Adding exposed brick can transform your living room into a cozy retreat, infuse your kitchen with culinary inspiration, or bring a rustic touch to your mudroom. At the same time, stone veneer can turn your bathroom into a spa-like sanctuary. 


Here’s how you can incorporate brick or stone into each of these spaces:

1. Brick In Your Living Room

Create a design statement by featuring a brick wall as the focal point behind your couches, adorned minimally to let the natural beauty of the brick shine through. Consider using North Georgia Brick’s English Pub thin bricks for this look, with their earthy red, brown, and terracotta tones creating that cozy atmosphere. Alternatively, paint the brick for a fireplace surround and wall in either white or black. This will allow the texture and character of the brick to take center stage while toning down the warm color palette for a more neutral backdrop. We recommend thin brick in Ironworks to achieve this look.

2. Brick Backsplash in Kitchen

Make a design statement in the kitchen with a herringbone or chevron pattern backsplash. This subtle addition of brick adds texture and visual interest to the space, enhancing its aesthetic appeal. We recommend using North Georgia Brick’s thin brick in Peppermill for the backsplash, as its rich, warm tones will complement various kitchen styles beautifully. Consider incorporating coordinating brick into the archway separating each space for an open-plan dining room/living room/kitchen area. When matched with a brick fireplace or wall, it creates a harmonious and cohesive flow throughout the space. North Georgia Brick’s thin brick in Towerbridge is an excellent choice for this look, with its timeless elegance and versatility.

3. Brick In Mudroom

For the mudroom, consider brick for the floor for durability and easy cleanability, making it perfect for this high-traffic area. To enhance the transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, pair with a matching brick paver pathway to create a seamless flow inside. Are you looking to elevate the aesthetic appeal of your mudroom? Create a thin brick accent wall behind hooks, a shoe bench, and other organizing or storage solutions in this space. A thin brick accent wall in rustic hues from our Carriage House or Smokestack series adds visual interest to the space and provides a durable and low-maintenance solution for your mudroom.

4. Brick Accent in Bathroom

To create a serene, spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom, incorporating stone veneer as an accent wall behind the bathtub can be transformative. The natural texture and earthy tones of stone evoke a sense of tranquility and relaxation, perfect for unwinding after a long day. We recommend The Ledgestone Series, available in modern shades of grey from the Bluegrass, Harbor Buff, or Hermitage collections. With its rich colors and genuine textures, the Ledgestone Series brings a touch of elegance and sophistication to any bathroom space, making it an ideal choice for creating a soothing retreat.

Whether you’re looking to create a cozy retreat or a serene space, spark culinary inspiration, or bring a touch of nature indoors, adding exposed brick or stone veneer can enhance your living spaces.
