7 Ways to Update Your Kitchen With Brick

People usually don’t think outside of the home when it comes to brick. Most obviously it’s used for the exterior of homes, patios, and firepits.

Inside the home, it’s usually reserved for fireplaces and accent brick walls and backsplashes. Unless you have a giant pizza oven, rarely do folks think to put brick in their kitchen…until now!

Brick is a way to make your cooking space stand out – it’s both a bold and classic choice. From backsplashes to floors, these 7 design ideas prove that brick deserves a spotlight in any corner of your kitchen! 

Brick island

Islands are a centerpiece of any kitchen, so why not jazz it up a bit? While it’s right in the middle of it all, it won’t take away from the rest of your kitchen decor. It’s a neutral yet unusual choice that will make your island unlike any others on the block!

Extra rustic with stone & brick


If you want to double-down on a rustic look, this one’s for you! Get close to nature with these materials that will make your kitchen feel like something out of the ordinary. It’s like being in a cabin in the woods anywhere you are.

Accent pillar

A pillar to hold all your spices, oils, or whatever you need within arm’s reach for cooking can be very handy! Build this accent piece near your stove for easy access and to add an interesting touch to your kitchen. We love a form and functionality moment! 

Brick floor

Go all the way with brick flooring! It’s an unexpected choice that will make your kitchen stand out. Pairing with white cabinets allows the red to shine, making for a timeless look. 

Brick archway

Wow your guests with an exquisite brick archway into the kitchen. This addition makes your space a little cozier with a classic feel that doesn’t feel too old-school. 

Brick wine wall

Bring the cellar to the main floor with a brick-lined wine wall! It’s got the feel of a basement with much more class. Wooden shelves add an extra natural element to make you feel like Sicily is only steps away. We recommend positioning this over a countertop or adding a table to keep your wine tools such as corkscrews and glasses nearby. 


Last but not least, probably the simplest and most popular addition of brick in your kitchen – the backsplash. The natural texture will make any stains you flick onto it while cooking virtually invisible! Even as a discreet accent, the brick backsplash still makes a bold statement.
