1. RESEARCH THE STYLE OF THE HOUSE
The material that your house is built from also forms the foundation (literally) of its aesthetic appeal. The colour, shape, size and texture of the bricks you choose will influence the overall look and feel of your house. Before you make your final decision, it’s worth gathering ideas from the internet, display homes, selection centres and magazines. When renovating, consider how new bricks will appear alongside existing materials.
Many homeowners find it helpful to pull together a “mood board” of images in the styles of homes they are drawn to. Simply save images (either physically or digitally) of your favourite buildings, bricks, trims and even interior ideas. As your mood board develops, it will often become apparent which style of home best suits your aesthetic and lifestyle.
