Trend Alert: Brick Floors, Interiors Edition

April 23, 2024

In the flooring section of our book, Remodelista: The Low-Impact Home, we advise: “Just say no to the synthetic stuff,” and stick to natural materials like hardwood, ceramic tiles, linoleum, stone, cork, and bamboo. Had we written the book today, we may have included bricks, one of the oldest and most durable building materials around, as another option for sustainable flooring. Though more commonly used for exterior surfaces, we’ve lately been noticing the rise of brick flooring indoors. And we approve—particularly when it’s paired with modern design.

Bricks were laid side by side for a more modern look. Photograph by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen.

Above: “I wanted to work with the garden designers to use something that worked inside and out so both spaces flowed from one to the other,” says Sophie Rowell of her decision to go with reclaimed brick for the kitchen flooring. “They’re usually used in a herringbone formation, but I decided to lay them in a brick format for a more unusual, youthful feel.” Photograph by Chris Snook, courtesy of Côte de Folk, from By Instinct: A Colorful Project by Designer Sophie Rowell That Follows ‘No Rules’.
