Why do the bricks I received look darker than or different to the sample you sent me?

Tuesday, 16 August 2016  |  Admin
This is usually when the bricks arrive wet. The bricks do dry considerably lighter. We suggest you lay the bricks out at room temperature for at least one week. You will then see that the bricks will match the sample when dry. In some brick ‘styles’ the bricks vary considerably in colour, even within a box, but this is deliberate because when they are mixed randomly on your wall they look superb. This does mean however, that you should allow for some colour variation from the sample you receive. We try to show the mix of colours on the website images. There are occasionally slight colour variations between brick batches because the same brick can be fired slightly differently, or be made from slightly different clay, etc.
