Product Overview

The ELIANE Melbourne 8 in. X 12 in. Sand ceramic wall tile is inspired by the bright, monochromatic palette of a desert landscape and offers a dynamic aesthetic enhancement that can add a splash of style to any decor. Light-colored hues reflect the flashes of the sun's rays over the sand, creating a subtle interplay of gray and gold shadows on this ceramic tile's glazed, smooth surface, and a non-vitreous water absorption rating makes it suitable for indoor applications only.

How can I be sure they will all be from same color lot? I saw one 12" x 12" piece that was totally different color than the 8 x 12 piece.
Asked by: LM
It is always recommended that shade coordination be evaluated under its correct application. Wall tile will receive indirect light, and the floor tile will receive direct light. It is better to evaluate it in a perpendicular angle as usually installed, not side by side.

How can this be suitable for a bath or shower wall when it has a water absorption rate of more than 7%?

I have looked at other similar tiles with the same water absorption rate and they state that they definitely cannot be used on bath or shower walls.
Asked by: Doe
Hello Doe, the water absorption will directly affect the way the tile absorbs moisture from the setting material and thus the bond that is established, it is also important for freeze-thaw conditions. Glazed wall tiles are considered non-vitreous because of the porosity of the body of the tile. However, once the tile is glazed, the surface of the tile receives a vitreous layer which makes the tile vitreous on its surface. For this reason we recommed it for shower wall. Water on the shower wall does not accumulate, and the vitreous layer is enough to protect the back of the tile from moisture. But,please bear in mind that grout joints are not waterproof. If you are doing a wet-area (such as a shower), rely on the method and substrate to protect adjoining areas from water.

Is this size tile suitable for a floor as well as walls??

Asked by: Windham93
No, the suitable tile size for floor is 12 in. x 12 in. You can use the floor tile (12 in. x 12 in.) for wall, but the wall tile (8 in. x 12 in.) is only suitable for wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value No issues as advertised, we used the Wall Tiles. Bullnose and Listello in the Baths looks great
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new shower Love the look of our new shower. Came out great! Used five accent pieces, they added just the right amount of contrast and they match the trim ( the line all the way around the shower stall.). We also had the ceiling tiled and that came out great too!
Date published: 2014-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Elegant tile This is a simple, neutral, yet elegant pattern that enhances the brushed nickel shower fixtures we chose nicely. We really like it because it is not too dark, yet gives the room a nice color addition. The accent tiles go very nice with it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful, looks like VERY expensive tile - love the accent tiles, too I would buy this again if the need arises. I had 6 boxes of these tiles shipped to me and the packing was so good I could hardly get into the boxes. Needless to say, none were broken.
