Working with Existing Exposed Brick or Stone Walls
Some houses are naturally blessed with an exposed brick or natural stone wall. Although some homeowners may not feel “blessed” depending on the condition of the wall and how it has been treated over the years. However, with a solid imagination and a touch of effort, you can turn that existing piece of architecture into a one-of-a-kind feature inside your home.
But first, you have to decide how much of the natural wall you want to retain vs how much you want to restore and change the look of the brick or stone to suit your interior design vision. Leaving the stone or brick in it’s current, possibly rustic state creates a very different look vs a crisply painted, fully restored brick wall.
