Give a room an interesting look by installing brick pavers (image 1) as flooring. Pavers are thinner than construction bricks, but they're made the same way. Installing pavers is very much like installing tile. The main difference is how you trim the pavers to fit. Because pavers are very hard, rent a wet saw to cut them. Pavers can be laid out in a variety of patterns, including a running bond (image 2), a jack-on-jack pattern (image 3), a ladder weave (image 4), a herringbone pattern (image 5) and a basket weave (image 6).
Before beginning to lay the pavers, make sure that the subfloor is level and clean as well as sturdy enough to bear the weight of the bricks. Projects involving bricks can take a long time, so plan ahead to avoid the temptation to rush as you get near the end.
