We have found the the use of brick lips within the bathroom has been on a sharp increase, as more and more people take inspiration from interior designers across social media platforms more and more of these "influencers" are expressing the fashion statement that is brick slips. bathroom brick slips are used to create an apartment style finish, similar to what you would find in New York and Chicago!

Brick slips have slowly transitioned from a product that was once used to match up against older bricks in the use of extensions, planters, ponds and garden walling however, the phenomenon of brick slips being used indoors has taken a big bite out of the tile industry and it is incredibly easy to see why!

Brick slips have the capability to completely transform the aesthetics of ones bathroom, adding the rustic appeal and urban unfinished aesthetic to your bathroom as well as this,  they can add age, charter and charisma to your bathroom and have multiple uses and benefits within their properties.

There is a certain allure to a brick wall that makes the space magnetic and calming. However, installing a brick wall might be more expensive than you might think. Brick slips offer an affordable and manageable alternative to brick walls or, in most cases stripping a wall back to its original brick work.

Houses today are built with a rough facing brick that is never seen on the inside of the house so the quality and finish is not exactly...desirable as these are usually cladded in plasterboard, therefore using bathroom brick slips is the perfect way to get your home back to a rustic finish!

Brick slips can be used anywhere in the bathroom including those real wet areas and floors, with a little bit of sealer your brick slips will be protected against crease and chemicals used in cleaning products.


What are Bathroom Brick Slips?

Bricks slips are made to mimic the rustic style and texture of real bricks. They are also made from the same material so they can have an authentic feel. Our bathroom brick slips are manufactured in one of two ways, one using clay exactly as you would find with house bricks these are great for insulating your walls but are considerably more expensive then their counter part. The second process is when brick slips are made from industrial composite materials such as crushed concrete, marble, quartz etc and the fired to give the sae aesthetics as real brick.

Our brick slips are cut using a variety of methods also depending off the desired finish, for a rustic/reclaimed looking bathroom brick slip these will be cut with rubber moulds allowing for imperfections and age related marks. For a more modern finish they are typically wire cut or compressed cut to get a more consistent finish. To get versatile textures and styles, our brick slip's primary material is mixed with natural colouring agents that can offer bright and bold finishes.

bathroom brick slips are a fantastic alternative to bathroom tiles not mostly because they are unique and offer a completely natural finish but offer 0 maintenance! A brick is meant to weather and look rustic, it doesn't need cleaning, regretting, re-sealing etc it will age perfectly by itself! 


Uses for Bathroom Brick Slips

These are two main uses for bathroom brick slips, in fact 3 and it all depends on what you are trying to achieve and that is hat you need to establish first! If you want to recreate as mentioned, a rustic and industrial finish to your bathroom then going for a 360 degree wall covering will look amazing!

If it is a feature wall you desire then create it! Use them with the addition of a another natural material such as marble, wood or limestone effect tiles. Using a modern metro tile will clash with brick slips and should not be seen together. Once you have got your accompanying tile then decide where these bathroom brick slips should go. Usually this will be to surround a batch  shower cubicle or as a bath panel tile.

Lastly the floor, a not so widely seen application but as stunning one never the less, using brick slips on the bathroom floor can create a cobble-like finish that really becomes a focal point on its own.

A point worth considering when using bathroom brick slips is the amount of light your bathroom has, if it is modern and you have a nice window and some decent LED downlight then your options are unlimited if it is poorly lit and doesn't have much natural light then we would always advise you to stick with a lighter brick slips such as subtle reds or whites. This will ensure the space doesn't close in.
