Five Design Ideas for New Builds or Renovations 

Inject life into home designs with PGH Bricks & Pavers

Brick is back. Architects, designers and homeowners are embracing brick’s inate durability and aesthetic flexibility to build the homes of tomorrow, according to PGH Bricks & Pavers.

As a longstanding supplier of Bellmarch Homes, we've asked the brick experts for the latest design trends and the results are spectaculor.

“We are seeing a resurgence in the use of brick to create impactful architectural features inside and out. Using PGH Bricks & Pavers’ range, the broadest on Australia’s East Coast, homeowners are embracing varied textures, shapes, colours and finishes to inject life into their home’s design,” said Michelle Gissel, General Manager of Marketing and Strategy at PGH Bricks & Pavers.


Interior feature walls add texture and visual interest for entrances and bespoke interior spaces. Bricks can create any look from crisp and contemporary monochromatic or glassy finishes using glazed bricks, to industrial and warehouse inspired interiors with dry pressed bricks.           

Create a recycled look by blending bricks with different textures and colours. Complement with timber joinery and flooring for a truly rustic style.



Maintain privacy without sacrificing design with hit and miss brickwork. Pierced brick walls allow light and air to easily flow through the building, connecting interior living spaces with the outside world while protecting the home from prying eyes.  

Go against the grain with wire cut bricks. Exposing the inside of a brick on exterior walls adds contrast and character, as well as creating jagged edges to protect walls exposed to general public areas from the rigours of urban living, such as graffiti.
