Faux brick?

uploadfromtaptalk1438886807325.jpguploadfromtaptalk1438886817994.jpgI'm considering doing a faux brick on the outer walls of the bathroom area. Has anyone seen a thing like this successfully done in a bus, rv or similar situation? I'm doing breadboard for the facing of the bus walls and I just can't seem to commit to anything. Eek.

You definitely want a "Faux" mortar that is highly flexible.

I'm not sure what you mean. These come in sheets at Lowes, you just paint them to make them look less.... Fake. Some people use small amounts Of grout

Faux brick?

I think it would look really good.
I put tile in my KitchenImageUploadedByTapatalk1438893411.837233.jpg

Notice the grout chipping. I take my bus through some pretty odd angles now days - but before that it lasted over 2 yrs no problem...

Yea that is Faux Brick and then there's also the Faux Brick Paneling.
I put my tile up with these Simple Mat sticky backing sheets... But be warned - once it's on - ITS ON!!!!!!!!! No Adjusting~

I was leaning toward the paneling. And painting it to look more realistic after installation

Yea I think that would turn out really nice - I like the idea of sprucing it up a bit to look more brick like

They make bathroom silicone that looks like grout.

Its made for flex joints in big tile jobs, around toilets, ect.

It will never crack and fall out.

I think a faux finish would be great, and if it looks like bricks, you have the right to brag that your rv is tougher than a brick sh1t house.

Sanded caulk comes to mind. Mapei - Lowes, or Polyblend - Home Depot.

Comes in various colors.

Don't do it! There is no way faux brick would ever be appropriate in an RV. It will obviously look, well, false. Can you imagine faux brick siding on an airplane? Same idea.
