Artificial brick has a number of advantages over the original.
It is lighter and thinner, which means it does not take away precious centimeters of area. It has good thermal insulation. Much easier installation – a special adhesive is enough to attach the parts to the surface. Large selection of colors and shades from white to black. It can be cut, which is convenient when facing areas of non-standard shape and corners. It serves for a long time, does not fade in the sun, and is not afraid of exposure to household chemicals – this simplifies surface care. With such cladding, the wall automatically becomes an accent element.
It can create a feeling of an unfinished and uncomfortable interior. This happens if you go too far with rough textures and cold tones – as a result, there may be a feeling of non-residential premises. Not suitable for every style. Indeed, in a strict classic interior, such a cladding will look strange, but at the same time, it has long gone beyond industrial styles. Modern, scandi, boho, eclectic, minimalism – thanks to the variety of textures and colors, brick trim can fit into most modern styles. An excess of such decoration will visually reduce the space due to a large number of small details, and can also simply ripple in the eyes and make the atmosphere too monotonous and boring. To avoid this, it is imperative to combine this texture with other materials.
When choosing an artificial analog, it is important to understand what characteristics each of the materials has.
