Imagine the world's biggest box of crayons and you still won't come close to picturing all the different styles and colors of brick available to you in the U.S. That's because there are over 10,000!
Of course, no one actually expects you to look at that many. So, how do you pick a brick? One of the best ways is to visit your local brick showroom. There, you'll find hundreds of actual brick samples along with experts who can show you what your house will look like with various colors and styles. If you like, you can even take home a portfolio or "mini-board" of brick samples.
