Painting Brick Walls White – An Increasingly Popular Trend
Brick walls, in their natural state, are very charming and lots of people choose to take advantage of their presence which gives a room a warm and inviting look. But you can still get that look even if you paint the brick walls. The result can be very stylish. Brick walls look very nice painted gray or black but they look especially interesting when painted white.

This combination of bricks and white paint is rather unusual. On one hand, bricks have that natural reddish color which usually creates that warm feel in a room. However, even if you take that away and replace it with white, which is a cold and impersonal color, the wall will still keep its texture and pattern so not everything is lost. In fact, it’s a great compromise for those who wish to update their interior design and make it more modern and simple but still preserve some of the original charm.
Be advised that, once you decide to paint a brick wall white or any other color, it will be very difficult if not even impossible to later restore it to its original state and glory. It is a very drastic change so be prepared to live with it for years to come. Even so, sometimes it’s better to give up something you’re not crazy about and to replace it with something pleasant than to think about the possibilities you never explored.
