simple ways to brick clad a wall with electric sockets
Thin Brick slips are ideal for covering walls and creating fantastic features we are often asked what can be done with electric sockets and light switches, well installing our brick slips is very much like tiling you can cut the brick around to the size of the socket, it will be worth taking the face plate off for this and pulling the cable about a few centimetres which will give you an access area behind the metal or plastic sockets or switches in which you can then brick up to. Once you have done this keeping in mind that you need the slips cut to as close of the inner box size as possible so when you put the cover back on it will hide the cuts behind the facing plate. You may need to use longer screws for attaching the face back to the socket these can be purchased from any good DIY shop.
