If you have made the wise decision to add an accent wall in your home, but are looking to add a little creativity to your design, faux brick paneling is the way to go.  Faux brick adds texture, dimension, and an entirely different look and feel opposed to using a simple coat of paint that varies from the remaining walls in the room.  Would you rather see a brick wall around a fireplace, or a dark shade of maroon?  These are things to keep in mind when making changes to your interior design, as they are only going to help your resale value.

The panels usually take around 2-3 weeks to arrive, and then the fun begins.  The best part about using faux brick for an accent wall is that you can install them yourself!  Unlike authentic brick, faux brick panels are DIY and only require a few standard tools and either caulk or glue for installation.  An accent wall application typically takes several hours to complete and that’s it!

Using faux brick panels for your accent wall will enable you to rest assured that they will last and look amazing for years to come.  The reason for this is that the panels are highly durable.  They are made from a high quality synthetic material called polyurethane.  Polyurethane is extremely tough as it will not crack, chip, or dent.  It is also impervious to moisture, making your panels resistant to mold, mildew, and rot.  They are fire rated as well so you can choose to use them around a heat source such as a stove or fireplace.  If you use them in a high moisture area such as a kitchen or bathroom, you’ll be happy to know they are easily cleaned by simply wiping them down with a damp rag.  The same cannot be said for their authentic counterparts, as you probably know that grout attracts just about everything!  Head to our ‘Products’ section now to start brainstorming on which faux brick panels will be the perfect material for your accent wall.
