Does anyone have experience using brick pavers as a kitchen floor? What is the best way to attach them to the floor, grout the joints and seal them?
This is an extremely bad idea for countless reasons. Stick with a terra cotta tile if that's the sort of look you are going for.
"Pavers" as I know them, are for outside use only: for walkways, driveways, parking areas, sidewalks, even streets, gardens, etc. But not for kitchen floor, or indoor floor in general.
Pavers are rough, they have big gaps between them and they are tall, too tall for indoor use.
The only way I would recommend doing this is with a flooring like Portstone makes. It can be installed anywhere ceramic could be, is light yet looks and feels like brick. Google the name and there is info about dealers in the US etc.
Is the application on a concrete slab or wood with floor joist?
If wood then you will have some major deflection.
Not a good choice if you ask me either way
Howdy great idea. First is there room for the appliances to clear any counter tops, dishwasher able to be removed after pavers installed? Are the pavers made to be strong enough to with stand the wear- some are made to withstand allot of wear some are not. What to do to address the step down s into the adjoining rooms as pavers are thick and can create quite the trip dangers at adjoining rooms. one can install with mastic or mortar. If the sub floor is not at least 3/4" thick then you need to consider installing an underlayment again this thickens the floor...
I would think they would be a major pain to keep clean.
But in an adjoining sun room they would be quite nice.
You could probably find a quarry tile in a modular paver shape; It would have a brick appearance but not be as rough, or as thick. With the proper sealer, it would also be easy to keep clean.
