Clinker slips in interiors look at least as good as on exterior applications. Moreover, combined with other interesting materials – they can become the source of unknown arrangement possibilities.
In general, interior clinker slips are any clinker slips – all types can be used for apartment interiors. However, not every model withstands equally well the unique challenges related to their installation over the stove plate or in the shower. Clinker slips with smooth face front are the best solution for this type of places. Textured slips should be protected with a screen or impregnated. In places free from grease or water splashes, clinker does not require any additional treatment to look great for many decades. If it gets dirty, which can be the case if you have kids, simply give it a clean or even scrub it to make it look beautifully again.

Clinker slips in the interior of the living room, as well as in the lobby or antechamber and near the stairs, will permanently protect the wall against scratches and soiling. They can also be used to create a beautiful fitting for a fireplace or a bio fireplace, since high temperatures, fire or soot cannot hurt them (it applies to slips with smooth faces or impregnated). Depending on the color, the way of processing the surface and optional decorative elements, they can be used to create the atmosphere of a modern loft, old tenement house, modernist villa or rustic house outside the city just in your apartment. The unique clinker brick from Patoka will give the interior a special character. The end result will also be affected by the joint type – a deepened joint will give the impression of an old brickwork, a joint even with the brick face will emphasize the fresh character of the arrangement. A color similar to brick shade will set the cladding into a consistent composition, a contrast one will put the emphasis on the brick layout pattern.
Interior clinker slips – Kitchen
Clinker slips in the kitchen immediately make the interior cozy and give a warm feeling of the domestic nest. But as with the living room, they offer an extremely wide stylistic spectrum, from retro to modern styles. They are a perfect material for wall finishing, including the kitchen worktop (however, it’s worth to properly impregnate slips above the hob to avoid the problems with grease stains) and in the table area. Once and for all, the problem of a wall damaged by carelessly pushed back chairs will disappear.

Interior clinker slips – Bathroom
Clinker slips in the bathroom give the interior an incredibly intriguing character! Combined with concrete, they gain a very warm appearance. Dimmed shades of red and slips imitating historic tenement brickwork will play well in this type of context.

It’s easy to maintain the highest level of hygiene, since clinker slips can withstand washing and even scrubbing very well. They are a good choice for shower applications, however, it’s better to choose slips with smooth face (different types should be coated with a hydrophobic impregnation) where water pours heavily. However, if their purpose is to finish the screening wall and the increasingly popular walk-in shower, it’s worth to use not only standard slips, but also the corner ones – they will create the atmosphere of a real brickwork.
