Take your pick of bricks

THE ex­pand­ing range of brick styles means they no longer just serve a func­tional pur­pose.

Vi­brant colours and a va­ri­ety of sizes are be­com­ing an in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar choice for peo­ple look­ing to add a cre­ative look to their home’s foun­da­tion.

“With ad­vances in man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­niques, the spec­trum of brick colour and tex­ture is broader than ever be­fore,” PGH Bricks & Pavers spokes­woman Michelle Gis­sel says.

“An ex­ten­sive range gives home­own­ers and ren­o­va­tors the op­por­tu­nity to cre­atively jux­ta­pose dif­fer­ent colours and tex­tures to cre­ate unique de­sign fea­tures.”

Gis­sel says there are many ben­e­fits to choos­ing bricks.

“Un­like painted or stained ma­te­ri­als, which re­quire reg­u­lar re-fin­ish­ing and up­keep, brick is a durable ma­te­rial that holds its colour and re­quires lit­tle main­te­nance,” she says.

“Coloured bricks are ideal for fea­ture walls and adding tex­ture and vis­ual in­ter­est to en­trances, al­fresco ar­eas, kitchens and foy­ers.

“We are also see­ing the re­turn of nat­u­ral brown bricks, but in darker shades than the tra­di­tional browns of the 1970s.”

PGH Bricks has re­cently re­leased a slim­line lin­ear col­lec­tion of its glazed bricks in 25 colours.

“Slim­mer bricks can be used to cre­ate smooth lines, sharper corners and tex­ture for stand­out in­te­ri­ors and ex­te­ri­ors,” Gis­sel says. See more op­tions at pgh­bricks.com.au
