Why You May Want To Avoid Painting Brick, According To HGTV’s Nate Berkus

0 10

Nate Berkus started off his response to the painted brick question submitted to “Larry King Now” by saying that he wasn’t opposed to it at all, if that was your preference. As evidenced by more recent episode of “The Nate & Jeremiah Home Project,” that’s something he feels pretty strongly about. The 2023 episode of the HGTV show saw Berkus agree without question that a couple’s whitewashed fireplace should remain as is. After hearing that one of the homeowners had done it herself, both Berkus and Brent congratulated her on a job well done, and Berkus shrugged that it was a given that they’d keep it. “It’s your work,” he said. 

For that reason, if you’ve already painted or whitewashed brick in your own home and love the look, Berkus is all for keeping it as is. And, it stands to reason that even if you haven’t already painted yours but have always been a fan of them, Berkus is all for doing it now. Just be sure to paint your bricks the right way, when you do it.

If, however, you were only a fan of the look because it became trendy, Berkus’ thoughts are about to become a whole lot more pertinent. In January 2024, The Color Concierge noted that painted walls were on the way out, particularly when it came to exterior walls. All the more reason to prioritize what you love!
