Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retdiy Love this tile
Very pleased. Little difficult to install. You have to make sure all the rows are level and use lots of spacers horizontally and vertically but it was well worth the outcome. Although a light colored grout was recommended, I chose the color Haystack because I wanted the individual tiles to stand out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smarteboy Easy to work with, very nice accent
We used this mosaic as an accent in our kitchen backsplash. It turned out very nice, and I got a lot of compliments on the finished job.
We paired this with (Jeffrey Court Creama 3 in. x 6 in. Honed Marble Floor/Wall Tile) to create the look we wanted. Grouted with bone color un-sanded grout. The grout lines in this mosaic are 1/16" so un-sanded is much easier to use.
Easily cut with my diamond wet saw, and for small bits I needed to trim I used tile nipper pliers. It can be a little frustrating to get all the tiles to line up and get perfect lines, but I found out that everything is more forgiving once the grout was in there.
The mastic and the grout cleaned off this tile easily, and all in all, I am very happy with it. As far as mosaic sheets go, I felt that the value was very good compared to the other tiles available.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DAC Color is deceptive!
I love the style but the color of each piece varies as it does with all natural stone. We intentionally mixed up pieces from the boxes per the directions even though at first glance they all look alike. What we found is that once they were up you would see blocks throughout that were darker than others....a little bit like patchwork.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leslieblonde Perfect finish to my project!
This mini pencil tile was perfect for my laundry room backsplash. I saw the product at a Home Depot in California and was able to order online as our local Texas stores do not carry it. I did the complete installation myself without the assistance of my hubby. My biggest challenge was the right cutting tool that luckily my brother-in-law had and loaned to me - see it in the photo. Originally I purchased a cheep one at Home Depot (under $10) and it only cracked the tile pieces. Some of the tiles were cracked, but I just cut them out and replaced individually on the wall. I used a strip vertically on each edge of the ends of the tile which made a nice finish to the project. I used mastic and linen sanded grout. I did watch some video online before hand to help me purchase the correct products and to see how difficult it would be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SP Used for kitchen backsplash
I had to remove the old glass tile backsplash and redo the sheet rock before I could re-tile. I chose this tile because it's small and hid some flaws . When I had my granite counters installed, it was discovered that my counter was not level. It went from about 1/2" to 1" from one end of the counter to the other. I had tried to patch this in with my extra glass tiles but it always bothered me. This pencil tile looks great. I started at the counter base and it runs under up underneith my cabinets. Even if you look under the cabinet it is not discernable that things aren't level. It reflects light well and looks contemporary and was easy to install. I bought a tile saw and found it easy to cut. I would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYbuff12345 Tricky Installation, pleased with end results
We purchased this tile to accent the Quartz Sierra Madre Countertop we had recently purchased at Home Depot. Because the tile looked difficult to install, we hired a tile guy to complete the job. After the installation was complete, we grouted with a Canvas colored grout. We loved the results, with the lights out! Once we re-installed the under-counter lighting, we realized every joint where the tiles united was showing and what we first thought was a beautiful backsplash, turned into a sickening feeling in our stomachs. Knowing we had splurged on an expensive tile, only to be disappointed with the outcome, made us sick inside. We called the tile guy to see what could be done. After much discussion, including tearing out and re-installing, we decided the because the tile was stone, we would first try grinding the seams to create a smooth surface, and resealing. What a SAVE!
After one more day of grinding, sanding and cleaning up dust, we bought a Sealer & Enhancer and finished the job. We are back to pleased with the outcome. While I am going to check the "Yes" I would recommend the product, please use caution during the installation. The joints are tricky and require precision.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vivster The perfect tile
I just finished installing this tile for my kitchen backsplash and it looks great. I searched a ton of stores looking for a tile to match my beige counters and dark wood cabinetry and I am so glad I waited! It is timeless, neutral,stylish and has a high end look. The tiles look better when grouted and are easy to install!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunniegirl Stunningly beautiful!
If you are looking for something a little different, with an edge for the contemporary, then this tile is for you! We used it on our master bathroom floor, and as a border as well. It looks perfect with the older Greecian marble subway tiles, and as a border with a pencil and chair rail surround, makes for a very gorgeous accent! We had professional installation, and he made it look easy, but I know there is a little finesse in getting this perfect, so DIYers need to take their time. Hard to compare pricing, as I found little to compare to this tile in my search. Very beautiful tile with many options for application...
