METROBRICK Architectural Thin Brick Blend Ideas
Blending is an important part of the brick making heritage. METROBRICK's colors can be easily blended.
Blending various colors of brick was part of life in the early days of brick making. Kilns fired bricks erratically causing a range of color and often bricks were mixed from different batches out of necessity. This gave historical brick walls a varied appearance. Today, as is often the case, what was done in the past out of necessity is now a desirable feature. METROBRICK® thin brick offers a wide range of colors in its color palette. These natural earth tone colors can be easily blended for a variety of effects that can both emulate traditional brick and allow the designer to go beyond the ordinary. Below are a few blend ideas for consideration or create your own custom blend with our Blend Generator.
