common questions about farmhouse brick

how much variation should I expect?
all the dazzle of the beloved zellige tile grounded with the integrity of brick.  our farmhouse brick line speaks to clients fond of both zellige and glazed brick especially those that fancy extreme variation. if you like a smooth, consistent finished surface then this one is not for you. looking to embrace a little more surface tension and patina?  then farmhouse brick will serve you well.

please expect 6 tiles per square foot for a 2-1/2x8" tile. this allows for a 3/8" grout requirement.

smaller grout spacing can be used including “a tight joint”; however, additional tiles will be required to cover a given area. narrow grout spaces accentuate tile irregularities.
