Stucco And Brick House Ideas

Stucco And Brick House Ideas

Stucco and brick go together quite well and it is not something that I thought about before throwing this post together but I found a few houses I really liked and was amazed at the design ideas I found.

This post is a collaboration of some of my favorite brick and stucco houses I found online, which will hopefully inspire others out there and give them some ideas on what elements they like.

What Types Of Bricks Are Available?

The types of bricks available will vary from location to location, especially when looking at used bricks. It is important to remember that bricks have been around a long time and they were made differently, with different proportions of ingredients, which could alter the overall look and color of the bricks themselves.

New Bricks:

There are variations when it comes to buying new bricks too and these differences usually come down to the color of the bricks and the appearance of the surface of the bricks. To give you an example of this, let's take the listings from Home Depot's and Lowe's websites and compare just the new bricks that they have in stock.

Home Depot: Home Depot had a few different bricks to choose from when looking at "new" bricks. These seemed to have limited colors available and the descriptions stated that they were made from clay, cement and concrete.

Lowes: Lowes had about the same selection as Home Depot for their new brick selection too, right at three choices. Notice the difference in the color of the bricks and the appearance.

Used/Reclaimed Bricks:

There wasn't quite as big of a selection for used bricks as there was for the new bricks at Home Depot and Lowe's, both locations having only one type of use brick to choose from each. What is interesting though is that these two bricks were different in appearance and even color, just like we found with the new bricks.

Remember, the above example of the different styles and colors of bricks are only examples from Home Depot and Lowe's, if you get bricks from somewhere else locally, then you are going to get a whole different appearance and color altogether.

What Roof Colors Go Best With These Types Of Houses?

This is actually a pretty easy topic to talk about because looking through all of the different photos I have listed on this post here and other photos online, I noticed that one roof color was actually more popular then the other roof colors and that color was a gray colored roof.

The Three Most Common Roofing Colors People Chose: The 3 main colors that seemed to keep popping up and I personally think went well with a stucco and brick home were: black, gray and brown roof colors, whether that be asphalt shingles, metal roofing or a tile roof.

Roofing Material: By far, the most common type of roofing material used for stucco and brick homes was asphalt shingles. Now, there were some examples of tile roofs and cement tiles used, along with some metal roofing materials mixed in with asphalt to break up the look.

Remember, I am just making an observation on the photos I looked at and im not saying that another type of roofing material or color of roofing would not work as well as a gray, black or Brown roof color but that was the most commonly used colors.

Let's Talk Stucco Colors...

For the most part, there were three main stucco colors that were used for the majority of the houses I have listed above. These colors were: white, some sort of a tan/beige or a grayish color. This was the general consensus for most of the houses I saw not only in my lineup but online as well and it makes sense, when you think about it.

White, tan and gray stucco colors are pretty neutral and would allow you to use a more vibrant color like a red brick as an accent and still have everything look good and mesh together.

White Stucco And Bricks Colors: One thing I did notice when using a white stucco color, in tandem with bricks is that the color of the bricks themselves will change the overall look and feel of the building dramatically, which is to be expected but getting a more detailed breakdown of what I see will help to visualize what I am talking about...

The first example we are looking at is using a very bright white stucco color for the walls and a multicolored brick layout that mainly consists of red colored bricks.

If you look closely, you can see that the bricks actually have 3 different red colors to them, along with a washed out white brick thrown in here in there.

Here is another house that is using a white stucco color but it is a softer, more warm white than we saw in the previous example. The bricks have a brownish tone to them, making for a different look than red bricks.

The last house that we see also uses a white stucco for the walls but an entirely different color for the bricks, making it very different from the previous two houses we looked at.

The bricks used on this house are tanish in color.
