Brick, traditionally made from clay, is a timeless, natural material that can enhance our Twin Cities, MN custom home. It is durable, versatile, and can easily be incorporated into a variety of aesthetics. From rustic to modern—there are a variety of ways to incorporate brick into your luxury home.
Embrace Brick’s Authenticity: Reclaimed brick that varies in color and shows its age adds another dimension of character to a space. It can accent a modern design or bring authenticity to a rustic or retro space.
Add Texture and Detail: Brick may seem like a straightforward building material, but it can be very flexible in its uses. Consider using brick to add texture or movement to the outside of your luxury home. For example, use brick to create a pattern on the outside of your home, or include brick corner quoins to add depth to your home.
Use Archways to Give Spaces Significance: Brick can have a grandiose effect when used as an archway. Whether it be an actual arched doorway or an archway detail in a wall, the natural curve of the brickwork will create a focal point and help to distinguish a space as significant.
Temperature Control: Beyond its aesthetic potential, brick has special temperature controlling properties that Twin Cities, MN homeowners can appreciate. Throughout the day, the brick will absorb the sun’s heat. As the temperature drops at night, that heat will be released. This helps the brick naturally regulate the temperature in your home.
Thanks to its versatility and mix of form and function, brick has withstood the test of time and continues to be a favorite building material for homeowners. The design/build team at L. Cramer Builders + Remodelers can help you find the best ways to incorporate brick into your luxury home. To get started today, contact us at (952) 935-8482.
