Bricks have been used in construction since around 5000 B.C. so it is no wonder they give any structure they adorn such a classic look. Brick remains one of the strongest and longest-lasting building materials around and architects are continuing to find creative ways to use them. It is tried, tested, and true; but above all, it lends a timeless appeal to both modern and traditional homes.
The brick house aesthetic has proven to be impervious to the passing trends. Whether it is French country, English cottage, colonial architecture, or any other style that uses this hard-wearing, industrial material, there are so many ways to interpret modern brick homes. And not only do they stand the test of time, but brick homes are also known to age gracefully. A number of exterior design ideas will allow you to accentuate the charming character of brick houses.
