Remodeling Trend Alert: Faux Brick Backsplashes And Walls

At Moss Building & Design, we strive to work with our clients’ personal tastes to design the remodel of their dreams. Additionally, we constantly study up to stay on top of design trends. One trend that we’ve seen a lot of lately is faux brick in backsplashes and other walls.

Many ways to implement this trend exist, from grout choice to wallpaper, so we thought we’d deep-dive into this trend and share how to achieve this chic look.

Use Dark Grout To Create Contrast

This MOSS kitchen remodel in McLean, Virginia, is a fantastic example of utilizing the faux brick trend. Our designer helped our client choose a standard white subway tile but used grey grout to make the grout lines more prominent and to bring out the shape of the individual tiles.

By installing the tiles all the way to the ceiling, the faux brick look is fully achieved.

Brick Veneer

Installing brick veneer is another popular way to achieve the look of vintage exposed brick walls. These steps are very similar to installing regular backsplash, and the look is truly authentic. Check out this brick veneer wall and the steps involved, courtesy of Dengarden.

Faux Brick Paneling 

Another do-it-yourself method for updating your backsplash is to utilize faux brick paneling. The steps include cutting the paneling to cover your current backsplash and then, in many cases, whitewashing the paneling to give it the look and feel of white painted brick.

It’s a stunning transformation that really adds to any farmhouse chic renovation. Check out the steps and an example image courtesy of Remodelaholic

Faux Brick Wallpaper

The final, and most temporary way, to update your kitchen backsplash, is to utilize faux brick wallpaper. Yes, the peel-and-stick kind! Easy to install and inexpensive (and also, easy to remove, which is a huge plus), faux brick wallpaper is found at many online retailers

So many options are available to achieve the faux brick trend. If you’d like to learn more about this trend or about a home remodel, don’t hesitate to contact us at Hello@mossbuildinganddesign.com or at 703.961.7707.
