“Apron” for the kitchen is not only a necessity, but also an important decorative element. It can be made of various materials, as long as they meet two basic requirements - they are easy to maintain and serve for a long time.
Apron made of brick, ceramic tile, mosaic or skinali - the choice is wide, it all depends on your taste and on what style of decoration you choose. The market provides a variety of materials to protect the walls of the kitchen from pollution, and create a unique look of your kitchen.
If it is not possible to lay out an apron with artificial stone, brick or natural mosaic, you can use MDF plates with a film applied on them, on which anything can be depicted.
An apron under a brick, under a tree, under old plaster, and even under the pages of a photo album may appear in your kitchen. But natural materials, of course, is preferable.

Choosing a brick apron as a decorative element for a kitchen, pay attention to the texture of its surface: it should not be coarse-grained so as not to reduce space and not absorb fat and other contaminants. Such aprons are especially relevant in Provence, Country, Scandinavian or Loft styles.
A good option - an apron under the brick, made of ceramic tiles. Such a tile can have a glossy or matte surface, imitate laying of small bricks or brutal “large”.
Small bricks will suit the Mediterranean directions of the interior, and the large ones - to the fashionable loft lately. An apron made of brick is rather difficult to lay out, but a tile imitating brickwork is laid in the same way as any other, which causes no problems.
