It’s GORGEOUS! Tell me…does the white mortar pick up dirt over time?

Thanks Amy! Yes it does get dirty but there are a lot of battery powered bristle mops that work really well to clean it. Honestly, I’ve been so pleased with our brick floors I will do it again when we build.

Hi there! We’re looking to do a brick/mortar floor in laundry & mud room but just wondering how uncomfortable it is on your feet? Looks so beautiful but if the surface is so rough & hard I’m not sure I can justify cosmetic over comfort?
Thanks & blessings,
Cathy

Hi Anna,
Beautiful pictures of bricks. We recently laid both hand cut antique brick and Old Mill Castle mortar washed brick in our kitchen and guest bath…I’ve sealed it with Stonetech Bulletproof sealer, which seems to keep things from soaking into and staining the grout. My question is, do you know of a tool, that sweeps/mops rough surfaces like brick floors?

Back again for more inspiration as I anxiously await the completion of our floor. AHHH! I have waited over 25 years since I first became a homeowner for my dream of brick kitchen floor to come true! Love this post!

I am so excited! I just scored my thin brick pavers on closeout at Lowes for a steal! I have been wanting brick kitchen floors for years! We have long narrow kitchen so I definitely think the herringbone will be the way to go or else it will just make it look longer otherwise.

It may be a while until we get around to putting it down but when we do of course the makeover will be on the blog.

Great post!

Beautiful floors and more you’ve found, Ahna! I do love mortar washed brick (now that I know what it’s called). So pretty!!! How lucky to have found some reclaimed brick ~ enjoy laying them. My husband, daughter and I laid travertine diagonally at our last home in California and though it’s difficult to get perfectly level across the floor, after a while it comes pretty naturally.

Oh! Yes, you’ll want some kind of definition between flooring types, hence why this person put down the brick border between the entry and the carpet. It’d look awful otherwise. Plus you’d cut your feet on the herringbone’s pointed edges. Just a thought. 😉

Happy bricking and Happy Memorial Day to you! Saw your post over at Thursday Favorite Things with Amber and thought I’d come read. Thanks!

Blessings to you,
Barb 🙂
