For most people, an exposed interior brick wall at home would be at the top of their renovation wishlist. But still, not everyone loves the look of brick inside their home or have some luck having an amazing beautifully aged brick. Buying newer bricks can be somewhat unattractive or may fight against your design aesthetic. In most of those situations painting your brick is a great option that might just transform your least favorite element in your home to the one you like best. If you need assistance on painting your bricks at home Painters Birmingham can help you out just give us a call.
You have your choice of brush, roller, or sprayer for applying paint to your bricks, but using a paint sprayer will get the job done the most efficiently. Whichever application method you choose, tape off the area around your brick wall or fireplace and lay down drop cloths to protect your flooring before starting.
Begin by applying a coat of latex primer and let dry completely. Use either an elastodynamic paint or a regular acrylic-latex blend for your paint color. Elastodynamic paints are especially well-suited for brick because they have a high elasticity that fills in cracks. Most likely you’ll want to use a semi or high-gloss finish that will show off the unique texture of your brick and be easy to clean.
If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your interior brick wall or fireplace, there’s no reason not to transform it into something that fits your personal style. With the right preparation and careful color selection, you should have a refreshed interior that will look beautiful for years to come.
