Q&A: How can I change the look of my brick home without painting it?

Question by Ruthie: How can I change the look of my brick home without painting it?
We are in the process of purchasing a new home. It is a brick home, but with that 90’s kind of style. It is all one color and a dark red which neither my husband or I really care for. What can we do to change the look? I’ve seen some of the newer brick homes that look like the mortar is spread all over the brick as if it is being used as a texture right over the brick. It breaks up the color a bit and looks a little more modern. We don’t want to paint, because we think we might have the wrong style of home for this. Any good ideas? We live in the DFW area of Texas where brick homes are very common.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you could add some wood or stone to it.
