How can small white bricks not appear low?

The small white bricks in everyone’s impression may be ordinary, or even look bad, but there is nothing that designers can’t change, and small white bricks can also be special. So what are the ways of laying small white bricks? Come and see with me.

 How to choose a small white brick?

Common small white bricks are square bricks and rectangular bricks.

Common sizes of square tiles are 100 * 100, 150 * 150, 200 * 200.

The two most common sizes of rectangular bricks are 75 * 150 and 100 * 200. 75 * 300, 100 * 300, and 100 * 400 are also useful.

In addition to squares and rectangles, there is a small white brick of hexagonal shape.

The surface of the small white brick is divided into bright and matte. Many people say that matte is not easy to clean. In fact, there is not much difference between bright and matte in cleaning. The main difference between the two is in terms of giving people a visual experience.

There are two concepts of bread brick and flat brick that we usually hear. Bread brick is also called bevel brick, because the middle part is raised and shaped like bread, hence the name. A flat brick is a brick whose surface is flat. Generally, there are few bread bricks in square bricks, and more bread bricks in rectangular ones.

My suggestion is that it will be more convenient to choose a common size, and the corresponding labor cost is also lower. It will be more troublesome to stick the special size, and the wear will be more, and the labor cost will be higher accordingly. As for whether it is bright or light, flat or flat, you can choose it based on your own aesthetics and preferences.

 Is the labor cost of paving small white bricks expensive?

The smaller the brick, the more troublesome it is to lay it up, and the more expensive the labor costs. Especially for the special size of the paving, it also said that it will be more expensive than the labor cost of common sizes. As for the specific price, it is really hard to say. Different workers and masters have different standards in different places. Generally, they are calculated by day or by square meter.

Is the small white brick clean?

Everyone knows that white is not resistant to dirt, so if small white bricks are used on the kitchen wall, they need to be cleaned frequently, and a little oil is very conspicuous. It is best to wipe the wall above the stovetop with a rag every time after cooking, and it is not a problem to wipe it at other locations for ten days and a half months. If it is not cleaned for a long time, it is inevitable that the wall brick surface is full of oil. But you can think about it, instead of using small white bricks, is it the same with other bricks?

 Paving method of small white brick

There are three commonly used paving methods for square bricks: front paving, diagonal paving, and I-beam paving; three common paving methods for rectangular bricks are paving, I-paving, and vertical paving. Here are some pictures for your reference.

How can it be posted as a net effect

As mentioned above, there are so many kinds of stickers, choose one to let the worker master do it. To achieve the effect of the network map, there is another very important factor, which is to fill the gap.

The small white bricks with white gaps make the bathroom very translucent, and they look more spacious and clean.

The small white brick with black seams is the hottest match. Make the whole space more three-dimensional and more layered.

If you think white is too white, and the contrast created by black is too strong, you can also use gray gaps with small white bricks. The effect is unexpected.

If you don’t know what tiles are in the kitchen and bathroom?

The small white brick is definitely the best choice, and the more you look at it, the more you like it!
