What is the grout thickness - it looks like a larger space than others

I'm looking at pictures of this one and comparing against both pictures and an actual sample of the Jeffrey Court siberian 2 x4 glass tiles on a 12 x 12 sheet. Those are super close together and you really cannot see much grout, but this product looks like you see a lot of grout. Anyone have a take on that?

Which mastic is best for this tile?

Which mastic or thin set should be used to place this tile for a backsplash? Everything I look at online just says it is for stone or slate

Customer Reviews

Arctic Ice Subway 12 in. x 12 in. x 8 mm Glass Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality- 24 sheets ordered, all flawed :-( I ordered a sample and loved the size and color so I ordered 24 sheets total. Looked great in the package, but after opening all of the sheets when we were ready to install, every single one was scratched or chipped! I was so sad to have to return all of the sheets, not to mention the frustration and inconvenience we incurred as a result. I will avoid this brand in the future due to poor quality control. Thankfully we noticed the flaws before paying for the tile to be installed!

My wife and I did it as a DIY project in our kitchen and took us 2 separate days to get it done (we have a toddler). We were satisfied with the look and the product. Spacers are definitely needed (1/8"). We used the "simple mat" sticky paper and it worked great. Only Con would be at an angle you can see light gray lines on the bottom of each tile because of the backing/lighting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dull and broken I was so excited to get this for my backsplash. However, the color is much more green than blue, and maybe even some yellow in it? It was not the crisp clear blue/Aqua in the pictures. Also, nearly half of the sheets arrived broken!! I returned it all and went with a different tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tile! After looking all over the internet for colored subway tile, I found this. I was skeptical because it couldn't see it in person but the price was much more affordable than anything else I could find so I took a chance. The tile looks great in person but is more of a blue/green aqua than a sky blue. I would suggest having a professional installer. The overall look is exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful color... too bad most pieces had broken tile. Beautiful, thick glass tile. A light mint/sea glass look. Ordered 40 sq. ft. when I only needed 28 to help cover breakage. However I would say 90% of the 1 sq. ft sheets have something wrong, either defects on the front or back of tile creating an odd shadow or more often chips/half an inch broken off the sides of the side tiles. Could we still install this by cutting the broken pieces off of the mesh and putting on new ones and hand piecing the majority of the pieces? Yes. Will we? We shall see... going to look to see what else we can find before attempting to cobble together the unbroken pieces together. I'm guessing trying to remove broken pieces and piece together undamaged pieces would probably double the installation time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color is misnamed This tile is not clear white; it is a beautiful aqua shade that reflects the colors around it. I could only find the small mosaic in stores, so I finally ordered online. The largest loose subway tiles were my first choice, but there were extra shipping charges for it, for some reason. I am very pleased with my choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So-so tile; horrible shipping from Home Depot Unfortunately most of my review and rating is about Home Depot, but I'll start with the tile. Pros: Great and unique color. Good price for glass subway tiles. Cons: Many tiles are misaligned on the glue sheet. Tiles have extremely inconsistent size/glass fill which makes perfect grout lines basically impossible. Due to these two issues the job took almost three times as long as it should have. Several tiles had scratches on the backing which shows through the tile as a scratch since the color comes from the backing. Now on to Home Depot... It took Home Depot almost 2 weeks to ship my order. Totally unacceptable. I called several times and no one had any idea how to look up what was going on or when the product would ship. How can Home Depot have such a poor product tracking system? I ordered 55 sheets, so 5 boxes + 5 loose tiles. They decided to put each tile box plus one loose sheet into a cardboard box with zero padding, shipping from California to Michigan! When the boxes arrived I had many, many broken tiles....I counted over 60 broken tiles, ranging from a small nick to a complete shatter. I ordered more tiles of the same type from Wayfair. They shipped the day after I ordered them, and were packaged very well with bubble wrap. I will likely never order from Home Depot again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gorgeous product, arrives broken every time If this is stocked in your local store go for it. The color is gorgeous and it looks beautiful. If you need it shipped to home or store, proceed with caution. We needed only 18 square feet for our kitchen remodel and had to order and return three different times because so many arrived broken. There is no cushioning or protection at all in the packaging. I ordered more than was needed each time, and at least 40% of each order was damaged beyond usability. So if you don't mind buying waaaaaay more than you need and returning the broken ones then this product is great.
