9 Projects that Demonstrate the Versatility of Brick Floor

Often recognized as one of the most widespread constructive materials in the world, brick is, with no doubts, very versatile, low-cost and easily applied. Although it usually used in vertical surfaces, it also presents excellent properties when applied to horizontal ones, like floors.

Due to its range of patterns, textures, and tones, brick creates great graphic compositions, making the spaces aesthetically warmer and more welcoming. When it comes to interiors, it's best to use handmade brick, technically known for staying longer in the oven and being more resistant and less absorbing. It is worth keeping in mind that the adobe brick is vulnerable to humidity and climate changes, therefore, the application of a waterproof layer every two years, with a special solvent-based acrylic resin, is crucial.
