The Top 3 Benefits of a Faux Brick Fireplace Makeover

Benefit #1: Your Fireplace, Your Style

The first benefit you’ll get when using faux brick panels from GenStone is the ability to customize the look of your fireplace in ways that simply aren’t possible when using real brick.

While there are numerous brick styles, colors, and shapes available, you can’t really modify the final look unless you use harsh chemicals, lacquers, or other finishing methods. Alternatively, when using GenStone faux brick panels as part of a fireplace makeover, the panels themselves can be touched up with the latex paint of your choice.

We even include the hex-based color key you can use to get the exact paint color you need to make your faux brick look just the way you want it. This opens up a broad range of design opportunities, giving you more flexibility to work your fireplace makeover concept in with the rest of your interior decor.

Benefit #2: Forget the Brick Working Tools

Cutting, shaping, and laying brick is a very messy, highly skilled job that requires a lot of preparation and specialized expertise.

GenStone faux brick panels completely eliminate the need for masonry tools and labor. Instead, each GenStone faux brick panel can be cut-to-size using a simple handsaw, radial saw, or table saw. What’s more, GenStone provides color-matched faux brick corner pieces, corner ledgers, standard ledgers, and trim.

With as many ways as there are to replicate the look and feel of real brick, you’ll wonder why you never thought of using faux brick panels before!

With GenStone, the Opportunities are Endless

If you’re ready to get started on the planning phase of your fireplace makeover, the first step is going to be choosing which among the four faux brick color options you’re going to use:

  • Chicago—an industrial, weathered-looking brick veneer
  • Classic—a nod to the ‘real deal’ in every way
  • Deep Red—traditional, high-contrast faux brick
  • Multi-color—an artistic approach to integrating the brick aesthetic

Whichever color option you choose, we’re confident you’ll love your new hearth. For more design ideas and to get inspired with some creative ways to use faux brick and faux stone panels from GenStone, head over to our projects page.
