Brick Floors

I am changing up the blog a bit today.  Hubby and I are shopping for our home.  Yes, we are actually looking at completing a project from our long list.  Something we have wanted to do, but time, energy and funds have gone to other things.

Our home is mostly 110 years old.  It has been updated, renovated and added on to.  There is a new part and an old part of the home.


The old part has original hardwood floors.  Worn, loved and authentic. Swoon.


The new part has a mix of tile and carpet.  We will replace the carpet and one tiled area. 
We just assumed we would install hardwood.  But my dear friend and decorator extraordinaire, Amanda, suggested brick.  She sent these photos.






It comes in a tile too!


Now my wheels are spinning. 

Brick in a family room?

This is soooo beautiful!!!! My only question is, is this porous? If something were to spill, would it stain?

That site given for Acadian bricks does NOT work. That being said I went to their web site and searched thoroughly through ALL of their products offered. They DO offer individual thin brick tiles 2"x 8" x 3/4". They do NOT however offer BIG sheets of several tiles in uniform together that can be laid on the floor. I really think that those are sample sheets put together to display bricks that they have to offer. I also checked out the Vintage Bricks.com that was suggested by one of the other people above. My findings were the same for them. Both places offered VERY NICE looking THIN brick pavers or tiles, but NOT sheet tiles like the ones pictured. The ones offered for sale are no bigger than regular tile size. They are just cut to be much thinner. Also Anonymous to answer your question about them being porous, YES, all brick is porous. You would HAVE to seal them just like you would any type of tile, especially porous tile that you would put on your floor or countertops.

try Portstone

Try inglenook Tile. Although I haven't seen these in person, it is a tile that is made to look like brick, and has numerous options for color and style.

Hello everyone! I couldn't help but chuckle to myself at all the comments asking where one can buy these brick tiles!!! Goodness knows that was the first thing I looked for on this site, and I must add that the search for this kind of product has been highly frustrating!!! I so want brick floors in our kitchen, and my husband is totally willing to do it -- so long as I can find it in anything other than single bricks as sold by such companies as vintagebricks.com. That is just not a solution for us as we simply have too much square footage to consider working with just one six inch brick at a time! Well, I may have good news for some of you, although I must say I have no personal knowledge of this company; I found it completely by accident during one of my many online searches. If what they say is true, I think I know where I am going to purchase my kitchen flooring. One major drawback is the number of locations, however. In CA, I believe, there is only one. I figure we will have to plan a vacation around a trip to their show room. Nevertheless...I wanted to share. The company is Port Stone. Check them out, and if anyone has personal knowledge of the company, please share! http://www.portstone.com/portstone_website_1_002.htm
