Building Tip #42: Face Brick, Stone or Plaster, who is King of the Wall?

Building Tip #42: Face Brick, Stone or Plaster, who is King of the Wall?

Walls have always provided a protective barrier for homes, keeping our belongings and ourselves safe from the elements and any would-be invaders, but recently, they have needed to bring something else to the party. Wall trends have shifted requiring them to be both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing, keeping the tone and spirit of the home together. 

The only question that remains is which finish, stone, plaster, or smooth face brick, is the best option?

Smooth Face Brick: 

Smooth Face Brick has made a huge comeback in recent years and for many designers with a contemporary and industrial flare, it has become a primary choice. Areas that smooth face brick suits well are family rooms, lounges, outdoor entertainment areas, and patios where a rustic and simple look and feel is wanted. Smooth face brick walls provide homes with two major benefits; you don't have to paint them and cleaning is much easier, saving you time and money. 

Plaster: 

Texture has become a very desirable feature in walls, whether they are internal or external. Plaster can be used to create a variety of different textures depending on your personal preference, which are visually attractive. On top of this, plaster is easy to maintain and can be painted in your favourite colour choice, over and over again. 

Stone: 

Stone walls bring a charming element to any home, so it's no wonder why this has been the material of choice since the dawn of time. Stone walls are durable and aren't affected by wear and tear, or strong weather as much as face brick or plaster. Stone is very versatile in nature, easily used with other building materials and compliments so many designs. Whichever finish you think is best suited, the main consideration is whether your choice will fit in with the rest of the home's design.
