Brick Wallpaper Murals Blends Modern and Classic Aesthetics
There's no denying the stunning look of exposed brick! While you can get that look through using real bricks or even faux bricks, brick wallpaper murals are cost-effective, much easier to install, and it offers the same photorealistic look. Wallpaper murals themselves have an intricate, highly detailed printing process that results in lifelike imagery. This especially comes in handy if you're dealing with "real" imagery, such as a cityscape mural or materials, such as concrete and wood.
With its iconic look, brick wallpaper murals blend together a sense of modernity with a classic aesthetic. This results in an incredible backdrop that evokes feelings of "newness" with a more traditional flair. Because of this, brick wallpaper murals look right at home and can blend into any atmosphere, whether you're choosing a wallpaper for an English pub or a high-end jewellery store.
Brick Wallpaper Murals Have A Minimalist Touch
With a simple pattern and color scheme, brick wallpapers have a minimalist look about them that helps unify the space. Sure, photorealistic brick murals tend to incorporate a lot of detail, but it never looks tacky or overly "busy." Because of its minimalist approach to imagery, brick murals make the perfect backdrop for those who want to add a custom quote to their mural. Text really stands out against the brick, putting more emphasis on the quote, as can be seen in the example below.
With the majority of brick wallpaper murals you'll come across, the color scheme tends to favor a single color, with red/brown being the most popular, common, and iconic. That's not to say you can't find other brick colors, with options including gray, white, and black.
Brick Wallpaper Murals Are Versatile
With a visual style that blends modern and traditional, brick wallpaper murals are quite versatile and can be used anywhere. For home usage, brick murals add a loft-inspired look that is sure to be the centerpiece of any room. For commercial spaces, brick murals add an authentic on-trend style that's welcoming and inviting.
Part of a brick mural's versatility is also in its color scheme. It generally uses a single color, which makes it easy to account for when designing an entire room. Neutral brick mural colors, like white and black, can be easily used even in pre-designed rooms, while the more traditional red brick can add a burst of color to the space that isn't overly tacky.
