Exposed brick effect indoor tiles?

    I love indoor exposed brick walls (depending on the bricks,
    obviously), and was wondering if there are any tiles around with this
    effect.

    Like you can buy wood laminate instead of a proper boarded floor.
    Can you get tiles that look like exposed bricks to stick on
    plasterboard, that look convincing?

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks
    Nick

    These used to very common in pub makeovers 20 years ago. My local has just
    got rid of them.
    They were quite effective.

    Guys - thanks for your replies.

    Can you buy slivers of brick like that? Or do you have to get them specially cut?

    I'm not familiar with Flemish or Stretcher bonds? What are these?

    Yes you can, or used to be able to. They are purely for decorative purposes
    but look just like real bricks when fitted.

    brick pattern - it makes sense.
