What vinyl colours go with red brick?

Inspired by romantic visions of rustic cottages in the countryside, red brickwork has become a real mainstay of modern interior design in the past few years, adding character to kitchens, bedrooms and living rooms. This traditional look is perfect for giving your home a warm, welcoming atmosphere – but such a bold choice does require some thought.

It’s important to find a floor type that complements the exposed brickwork, and vinyl flooring is an excellent choice, providing practicality and versatility in equal measure. With a wide array of shades and patterns available, however, it raises a difficult question – what vinyl colours and patterns go with exposed red brickwork?

Matching tones

If you want your room to have a certain understated look, then vinyl flooring in a similar shade to the brickwork is one option to consider. Perfect for a living room or kitchen, finding complementary shades of brickwork and vinyl flooring will provide a serene backdrop, giving you the freedom to add dashes of bold colour in fixtures, fittings and furniture as a contrast.

The Eden 55 Argentina vinyl in a stylish dark brown hue, offers a stylish wood-effect look without the high maintenance that real wood requires, and is sure to add a touch of class to any room in your home.

Light tones

A lighter shade of vinyl flooring – perhaps a pale grey or brown – is ideal if you’re looking to emphasise the boldness of indoor brickwork, bringing out the deep tones of red bricks without feeling as if they overpower the room. Matching lighter vinyl flooring with a similar colour of furniture can further highlight the brickwork – the Rhino Classic Swan Light Beige vinyl, available from Carpetright, boasts a subtle, chic tone that will work beautifully with exposed brickwork.

Dark tones

While ultra-modern, minimalist room designs are on-trend in 2019, when it comes to your living room there’s a lot to be said for making it as cosy and welcoming as possible – and complementing red brickwork with a dark vinyl floor can help to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Dark reds and browns are especially good for a calming environment – the Floorgrip 893 Noblesse vinyl’s luxurious design is sure to work alongside exposed brickwork to enhance the rural feel of your living room.

Patterned vinyl
