    Bare your brickworkAn exposed brick wall will almost always imbue a space with warmth and character, especially when the bricks are old. Here, in a kitchen designed by MAD Martinelli Architecture & Design, that is certainly the case – and the age of the brickwork makes the contrast with the modern, high-gloss units all the more powerful. Not all walls are suitable for such treatment, though. Firstly, you’ll need to take Building Regulations into account, as the wall may need to be insulated to meet them. Next, the quality of the bricks will need to be sufficiently sound, and they’ll require sealing, too, so they don’t crumble dust into your kitchen. Also, you’ll want to like the colour of what you expose – bricks vary hugely in appearance. For an easier option, it’s possible to buy brick slips in any style or colour of brick you fancy. You could then use these almost like tiles to clad a plastered wall instead, and create your splashback that way.
