The Homestead Collection was our original tile assortment. Wright's Ferry (4x8"), Lancaster Running Bond (2x8") and Flemish Bond (2x4") styles were all intended to be different sides of one brick. Different textured molds provided many variations. Surfaces are weathered, and the sides are tumbled. Traditionally, the Wright's Ferry would have been on a floor, the Lancaster Running Bond on a wall, and the Flemish Bond used with the Lancaster Running Bond for the installation pattern by the same name.
Customers asked for corner tiles, so we added those. Others asked for a little paver, so we added our Cobble (4x4"). Someone wanted the worn surface of the Wright's Ferry brick tile, but wanted to put them close together. We removed the tumbled side for them and called it Traditional Antique. Finally, there were requests for the brick tiles in our own front entry, which are the most rustic of all, with very irregular edges, and we called it Wimer's Mill, after our home.
Look at the differences for yourself on the Homestead brick tile pages listed below to decide which might be best for your historic home.
