House Interior With Brick Flooring
If you are tired of seeing the same old flooring options over and over again, it may be time to try something new by choosing something very old. Paving your floors with brick flooring is an old way to get a new look and feel for your space. Brick flooring is a floor that has brick as its covering. Typically brick tile, the brick is laid down in a bed of mortar and arranged in a pattern. The brick is durable and will last much longer than a carpeted or a vinyl tiled floor. Maintenance is easy with a broom and a dust pan. A brick floor rarely needs to be washed, but can be with a mild detergent and water. Brick flooring is different than ceramic tile in that ceramic tile is typically smooth. brick is usually rough to the touch and is used in smaller sizes than ceramic tile. The smaller size makes it less friendly to wheeled objects rolling across it. Those families with handicapped members or rooms which may have wheeled carts used extensively may wish to reconsider the brick. The brick layer can also set the brick deeper into the mortar to create a smoother finish.
For the ultimate in durability and for a fashion statement, the brick flooring is a very wise choice. Careful planning for the areas used as well as the style of brick make the finished product a unique feature to any home. Ease of maintenance and classic style appeal to many homeowners.
