Cons of Brick Flooring
• Hardness. Durability comes with a price: Brick is unyielding beneath the feet. If you're using it in a kitchen or another space where you spend long periods of time standing, consider adding a cushioned mat or a thick rug to ease the strain on your legs and back.
• Unevenness. Even the best-laid brick floors aren't 100 percent level, so you may need to compensate by sliding shims under furniture or pads beneath precarious breakables.
• Weight. As you'd imagine, bricks are heavy, even in paver form. As a result, they're often impractical for a home's second or third story; it's very hard to reinforce the floor enough to support all that weight.
