Why and When to Use Black Brick Tiles

Black brick tiles may seem like they might take the light out of a room and therefore make it appear smaller, but things are not quite so simple. Black is used all the time by designers as a base on which to build a desired effect. Black is a basic colour and anyone who is familiar with fashion will notice how often black trousers or jeans are coupled with bright colours to create a striking look. Whist white brick tiles clearly have the advantage in increasing the reflected light in a room, black brick tiles can have the effect of emphasising the colours that are teamed with them without conflicting.

H&E Smith Ltd manufacture black brick slips and our popular metro tiles and we also produce flat black field tiles in our Period Embossed Range.


Our black brick slips continue to be an extremely popular product line. Eco-Glazed Brick Slips are produced at our Hanley factory from recycled Welsh slate. Our 215x65x15mm brick slip is created by taking the recycled slate and firing it on site to create one of our best selling products.

These environmentally responsible bricks slips are then glazed and re-fired to produce durable and visually appealing black brick tiles for use both outside and inside properties. In addition to our black brick slips, H&E Smith Ltd manufacture these popular tiles in twenty other standard colours as well as having the capabilities to produce brick slips in any RAL colour or using the Pantone colour finder if required.
