Adding the amazing look of brick to the interior of your home on an accent wall is a great way to add texture and variety to your interior design. Having something to look at besides a plain, painted wall can spice things up a little bit and make your home feel truly unique. However, when people decide they want to achieve this look, the question usually arises: how does one accomplish this without spending lots of money and time? Lucky for you, we did the research for you, and we know exactly how to make it attainable. The best way to create the perfect brick wall in your home is through the use of faux brick paneling.
Faux brick paneling is first and foremost, affordable. Because it is made from polyurethane, rather than authentic brick, it costs a whole lot less. It also does not require forklifts dropping off pallets of bricks at your home, as the panels themselves are extremely lightweight. This enables you to install them yourself. That’s right- no messy mortar, no labor costs, and a project that will not take days and days to complete. In fact, most people can create the perfect brick wall with faux brick panels in a single afternoon. All that is required are a few standard tools and either caulk or glue, depending on if it is going in a high moisture area or not.
In addition to being affordable, faux brick paneling is as durable as can be. Polyurethane, by nature, is a closed cell material. It is impervious to all types of moisture, making the material resistant to mildew, rot, and mold. It is also UV resistant and weatherproof if you wish to use them outdoors. Last but not least, we have fire rated paneling options available so they can be used around heat sources such as a fireplace or stove.
First things first, you must pick out your favorite faux brick paneling under the ‘Products’ section. Then, allow 3-5 weeks for shipping. Once your panels arrive, take them out of their packaging and let them sit in the area where they will be applied for at least 24 hours. This is necessary in order to let them get used to the humidity level of the room. Now, the fun begins! Follow the step-by-step tutorial on our ‘Resources’ tab to install your faux brick panels. In several short hours you will have created the perfect brick wall with little to no hassle and have saved money in the process!
