so my mate says, on daytime TV he saw they stuck this plastic stuff on the wall and put some like glue stuff on it and painted it and jobs a gooden looked ok. Think you get it from theatre type places. Maybe an arty farty shop.
Of course i never saw this tv program just so you know

you can buy hardboard that trys to look like brick... but think whatever you do will look a ****.. best bet would be to get some thin bricks... but would be expensive..

Surely most builders' yards sell facing bricks? Often used for covering up houses made of breezeblocks. About 15mm thick, I guess.

Problem is, they'd look new, you probably want the "distressed" look.

Are you sure it's a good idea on a Barratt Home estate?

Mossman
What you seem to be thinking of is Brick Slips - these are about 15-20mm thick and can be bought pre made in panels. It won't be cheap though - but does look like real brick ('cos they are : )

Another way could be to grit blast/jet blast the bricks you have exposed to get a cleaner look.

Neither are jobs I'd like to tackle in my house - why can't you tile it, paper it or paint it like a normal person????

I'm with Mossman on this one......I think old distressed brick walls in a kitchen look the dogs.

Very farmhousey, they look warm & inviting & add a lot of charcter to essentially a very functional room.

Good Luck!

Check out your local Yellow Pages under either Garages or Sectional Buildings as they will be able to supply you the same stuff they use to clad concrete garages.

Cheers
