A detail that is rarely mentioned is how well small tiles/stones are adhered to the vinyl mesh backing. This product has one or two stones that are not well-adhered on every 12x12 square. This begs the question how well are all the stones sticking. You will find out after time goes by because, even if your thinset and grouting is perfect, the rounded, irregular shapes of the individual stones could eventually render any one stone loose, and then your shower floor is ready for a do over. If your thinset, mastic, adhesive membrane or whatever you use has any flaws or weaknesses these tiny stones are subject to loss of adhesion. Stone aggregate tiles are sold at specialty shops for 3 or 4 times more $, and this is one of the features you're paying for--stones that will not come unstuck. Ever have tiny earthquakes in your location?
Aside all that, the stones are consistent, mostly evenly tumbled and laid, and quite attractive. They are quite porous which means some of your grout will want to lock inside those pores, but thorough grout cleaning will solve that. As with all small aggregate tiles, do not take any shortcuts installing this product.The finished appearance is good. Attached is a picture of a mirror backsplash I made and now I'm working on a new shower floor.

That's how I refer to Home Depot. I get so excited waling into the store. I have a design in my head how I want a certain section of my home to look like. I always seem to find the items I am searching for at such a fair price. Used the river rocks as a design between ceramic tiles. I was informed that people thought it was professionally done. Used a wooden cutting board and a box cutter to cut my design out. The adhesive that the clerk suggested was very easy to use. Used Martha Stewart glaze over the tiles, to keep out dust from collecting. Then brushed some more of the glaze over the river rocks to bring out some extra sheen.

The stones are very unique looking on my shower floor and niche wall. It matches our grey and white master bathroom so well.

If you are going to install this yourself make sure you do the following.
1) Seal them before you grout, two coats, and wait 24 hrs.
2) DON'T LET THE GROUT DRY before you get it cleaned off the this pebble mosaic. When grouting you need to make sure you wipe as much of the grout away from the surface as you can before it dries. after grouting a small section, wipe with a sponge to remove excess, and keep doing it until it is 99% clean and they way you want it to look in the final stage. Don't use much water on your sponge - wring it well, and keep rinsing the sponge.
This tile mosaic is not like other tiles or mosaics I've installed - the grouting was very tough.
Also check your batch numbers if getting more than one box. I had an install that looked bad because the guys at HD gave me two boxes from different batches - you can see the difference. I guess that was my fault for not checking the batch numbers. I didn't notice until after they were down. It wasn't a total loss, but I can tell and that bathers me.
The lines between the larger "squares" are hard to hide, even after grouting they show.

these are beautiful and flat so doesn't hurt your feet to stand on them for long time...the only thing about installing them is that you kinda have to piece the seams together like a puzzle but finished look is seamless. Highly recommend sealing this tile!! the light colors look like spa in bath. I love them and have decided to do them in another bath room! so I'm ordering more!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gerry Easy to install and looks great!
The pebbles look to light at first but with the application of a pigmented grout, they take on part of that color. Also, the pebbles are small enough to drape over imperfections on the surface: a plus on older or uneven floors without all the filler!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MsTeri Beautiful! Little pricey just to cover a patio table top.
Beautiful! Note the grout will get in the crevices of the stone tiles. Be sure to use non sanded grout so you don't scratch glass tiles.
