Today, however, the brick interior walls have become a real trend, so much so that some, both to save, both for practical reasons, choose to use the wallpaper or draw the bricks with the paint. Cover entire walls with bricks might seem like a no easy task, but if you use certain products, such as Brick Tiling, you can make it easier both the application and the treatment for cleaning. Let us see how to coat the interior walls with bricks.

If we have to put on the wall only for aesthetic reasons and not for the safety, simply raising a brick wall and place it to the wall with the same adhesives that bind them together. If, however, we have little space and the arcitura is needed primarily for static reinforcement of the wall, the fixing method is different and requires a lengthy and articulated process.

In this case, with a chisel must dig in the entire wall to a depth of at least 5 cm. This depth is the minimum, taking into account that if the laying takes place horizontally, the available depth of the bricks will be 10 cm. Respecting such an extent, you get a very good result. If instead we want to join the bricks on the wall, then the plaster must be chiseled to the same depth as that of a brick, or for all 10 cm. Once raised the brick wall and fixed to each other, we have to decide whether to leave them exposed giving him cleaned up with soap and water or rub with flatting or redoing the plaster.

If we decide to cover the walls with bricks only for decorative purposes, in the market there are specific models that require a centimeter in depth, and the laying is done as with in the normal tiles. In this case it is not necessary to chisel the wall, because there is the danger of collapse and poses that must always occur alternately. Also, it is very safe with the concatenated bricks between them and attached to the wall.
