Brick effect tiles can be used to achieve a wide range of different styles, from traditional rustic to contemporary and Scandinavian, there are endless possibilities. If you are unsure if brick effect tiles are right for you, here are few of the advantages of brick effect tiles.

 

Advantages of Brick Effect Tiles

  • Designed to mimic bricks

Brick effect tiles are designed to mimic bricks and are typically made out of porcelain, ceramic or stone. This makes them much lighter in weight which means they can be installed almost anywhere! 

  • Versatile

Another advantage of brick effect tiles is that they are extremely versatile due to their simple design. Which means if you decide to switch up the style in your bathroom, it is unlikely that you will need to start removing your tiles.

  • Easy to Install

One of the best things about brick effect tiles is that they are very easy to install. Due to their rectangular shape, they are very easy to cut to size.

 

By adding brick effect tiles to your bathroom, you can really elevate your bathroom design. And despite being a simple tile, they can make a huge impact in your bathroom. However, some tiles may come in different sizes, finishes and colours which will work better for certain styles. For example, if you are looking to create a rustic aesthetic in your bathroom, opting for brick effect tiles in varying shades or with rough and uneven edges is a better way to achieve this look.

That’s why we are sharing our top 12 brick effect tiles so that you can find the perfect tiles for your preferred style and taste to take your bathroom to the next level.
