Brick in the Kitchen? Definitely Yes.

Architect Greg Dennee of Locati Architects opted for a brick veneer in his own Montana kitchen. “It can be applied similarly to a tile, not requiring any additional structural support,” he says. “Mine was grouted by an accomplished mason, giving it an authentic feel.”

Dennee opted not to seal his veneer. “Honestly, it is really simple to clean, and we have never had an issue with it, even at the back of the cooktop,” he says. “That said, we have sealed some bricks and stones with transparent, no-sheen masonry sealers for our clients with good success.”Architect Greg Dennee of Locati Architects opted for a brick veneer in his own Montana kitchen.

WFYachtClub0610_0188Dennee has discovered some installation tricks for making veneer look like real brick. “In terms of pulling off this look, I think the biggest thing is to use the brick from inside corner to inside corner and from the countertop all the way to the bottom of the cabinet or ceiling,” he says. “To truly suggest a convincing brick wall upon which the cabinets were hung, you need to eliminate revealing that the material is a veneer — ending the brick on an inside corner, and never and outside corner, is part of this.”
