Rendering our brick wall kitchen

We have recently bought a 20-year-old property with some brick wall internals. We are considering to render the internal walls for aesthetic appeal.

  • What kind of product should be used for Kitchen rendering?
  • How much would it cost to get someone to do it, approximately 20sq.m20200108_074012.jpg?

@Jebin 

 

Have you considered just painting the bricks?

 

Here's a couple of examples:

@Kermit I was thinking a similar thing, sometimes turning an eyesore into a feature can end in great results.

A certain amount of styling the surrounds would need to be done, but I love that Industrially look of the bottom photo. Great suggestion!

Re: Rendering our brick wall kitchen

Hey @Jebin - @Kermit has a good idea there. One issue with rendering you might want to think about, is that you won’t get a smooth surface. In a kitchen, this could make cleaning very difficult, because no matter how good your steam extraction is, you will still get a bit of oily steam on the walls. @Kermit idea of painting, would give you a smoothing surface, and as @MitchellM pointed out, it looks quite good, cheers Deb
