Exposed Interior Brick Questions
In my kitchen I have taken the plaster off of the brick outside wall. I have repointed the brick and I am wanting to put some sort of finish on the brick. Oddly enough there is very little information on the Internet about interior brick and coating it. My preference is to clear coat it with polyurethane, however I have since read that doing so might cause a few problems, mainly creating a "condensate point" because it is an outside wall and a heated space. I am not sure that information is accurate or not.
My question is: What can I use to put a coating on the brick that is durable enough to withstand being cleaned (read kitchen grease etc) and still allow the natural brick to show? Painting is not an option because I have designed my kitchen to include this natural brick look.
