    Reclaimed brick that is "sliced". Think it's Chicago brick.

    The floor is made of reclaimed chicago brick. We don't have any information on the exact source of these bricks, but there are many companies through the country that sell reclaim bricks from demolition sites. Check out Windy City Antique Brick Company: https://www.windycitybricks.com/ They have distribution centers throughout the US.

    Actual brick. It is important to take the thickness of the brick into consideration when designing the space in order to ensure that the proper floor height is achieved.

    One more question... did you use regular gray mortar or a different color?

    This is a custom blend color selected by the home owner. A similar color that we could suggest is Silver Fox by Benjamin Moore.

  • bragor
    I feel like the paint color is very similar to Benjamin Moore weimerainer. Is that correct?

    Excellent question! In this instance, the reclaimed brick transitions beautifully with the stained white oak floors in the main portion of the house. Often if there is an awkward transition between flooring materials we will accentuate the threshold of the doorway or opening between the two spaces by using a different material such as a wide wood plank or stone slab. This technique separates the contrasting materials enough so they are not abutting and also visually indicates the distinction between to different spaces.

    Thank you darby_cheer. It is a little difficult to tell from the photo, but based on first impressions, it does not appear to be the same brick. Unfortunately, we do not have a record of the final grout selection.

    A wax sealer was used for the final finish. We recommend speaking to a local mason about the best product and its specific maintenance schedule for your particular installation.

    The dimension from the floor to the bottom of the center shelf is approximately 5'-6" high which a comfortable height that most people will easily clear as the stand up from sitting on the bench.

    The mudroom entry door is 3'-0" wide and 8'-0" high. Generally speaking, it is best to have entry doors be at least 3'-0" wide for ease of access as well as transporting large items in and out of the home.

    Thanks for your question. The wall color is a custom blend, and the ceiling is a slightly lighter shade of the same color which helps bring down the scale of the room and gives it a cozier feel.

    Gorgeously reclaimed Chicago brick, set in a herringbone pattern, covers this mudroom floor. If you’d like a similar floor, contact Vintage Brick Salvage, which ships throughout the country. The storage unit was custom made and painted in Benjamin Moore’s Acadia White, while the oversize back door with its mullioned glass is from LePage, a Canadian company.
