Answer: 
Yes, but seal the tile first. I installed it in my shower (18X18 on the walls and 12x12 on the ceiling). I had to lay one course at a time, per day, due to the weight of the tile. Buy plenty of blue painter's tape to support the tile. Also, I highly recommend the Kerdi line of products to help waterproof the shower stall.

I would not use this tile at all for any surface. I just ordered 3000 square feet in a special order to make sure it all matched and all the boxes had the same lot number printed on them. Even within that order the tiles varied in color from solid dark tan to splotchy white and it was all filled in on top and the back was at least 50% holes throughout.

The tiles broke as soon as the installers tried to install them. The tile job ran about 10 days over just due to the time it took the installers to lay the out of square tile that continually broke. It was also nearly impossible to bullnose baseboards from this tile as it crumbled in the grinder due to all the holes on the back. We also had to order about 40% more tile than needed to replace all the crumbled tile. Read Less

Answer: 
1 square foot = 12 x 12 = 144 square inches
Take square inches divided by 144 (because 144 square inches is 1 square foot) to get square feet.
18 x 18 = 324 square inches.
324 square inches divided by 144 square inches (1 sq ft) = 2.25 square feet.
4 tiles of 2.25 square feet = 9 square feet
Double check is 1.5 ft x 1.5 ft = 2.25 square feet.
2.25 square feet x 4 tiles = 9 square feet.

Castle 18 in. x 18 in. Honed Travertine Floor and Wall Tile (9 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't hold up well Had them professionally installed about 6 years ago. Loved the look, and still look good in places we rarely walk but started breaking and crumbling in well-traveled spots almost immediately. Cannot afford to replace the whole floor so we are having it refinished and polished and replacing a few that really need it. Thing is, although they are not expensive, there are cheaper options that hold up better with less hassle, so I would consider wear and tear before putting them in a higher-traffic area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travertine I purchased this for a rental when I had to fix a problem quickly. I was really surprised when it turned out better than the very expensive stuff I bought at a granite company for my home! The color is more even and so far no holes as opposed to my expensive travertine !
Date published: 2016-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Travertine We purchased this travertine for our guest bathroom. Our installer did an excellent job and few tiles were unusable. The stone is level and secure. It looks beautiful!! We then decided to buy 1500 square feet more and have completed an office--it too looks just great! We are very pleased with this travertine and would recommend it. If you're going to tile a large area, buy all tile necessary plus 20% so you can choose how best to lay it out for a nice look. Remember, travertine is a natural stone and no one stone will look alike in pattern or color. If you like natural, earthy look, it's a great tile to purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck! Just re did our bathroom, this tile gave us the most bang for our buck. I was really Leary at first because of the poor reviews, but my wife and I installed it within a couple of days and it turned out great! However the stone is thin and has a lot of voids in it. We took our time making our cuts and choosing our cut lines so that you don't cut through a lot of voids and cause breaking and then we buttered each tile as we laid them, filling in the voids. Overall we laid roughly 75 SF and only broke 3 pieces. I would recommend this product to other people that want great flooring for a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tile is great when is well installed These tiles are beautiful and when are installed correctly will last very long time. If you're planning to install them yourself, do your research. Use a good quality thinset, medium bed to help with leveling and also to provide support to the tiles. Thinset must be applied to the floor and to the back of the tiles. If you plan to hire an installer, make sure he knows how to do the job. Good installers will charge over $7 per sq. ft. Don't forget to seal the floor after installation with a good quality sealer; it will protect the floor from stains and enhance the natural look of the stone. The reviewers that rated this product so poorly really don't have the knowledge needed to evaluate the product. We have this floor through most of our house and couldn't be happier, looks great and it's very easy to maintain, just make sure to sealed at least once a year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware!! had 1200 sq ft professionally installed 3 years ago. back buttered every piece. Tile is now falling apart. Numerous holes where filler is crumbling. For the past couple years i have been filling these holes with grout but it is now getting out of hand. Called HD and was told they have never heard of such a problem. They had MSI call me, the MSI rep said that is normal, real stone needs maintenance. I asked if it is normal to have a 2" diameter hole crumble out and they said yes, that can happen, just need to keep filling with grout. Guess i will have to pay to rip it up and replace with something else...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tile! Just finished my first tile job ever. This tile truly is beautiful. Be sure to do your homework on installation. Use non-sanded grout, thick bed of mortar to help with leveling, and please, please pay the extra money and get the sealer/enhancer. The enhancer really brings out the variety of colors in the tile. Another note, this is natural stone so you will need to lay them out before install to make sure you use similar color tiles.Return the ones that are too far off. Since my job only required 12 tiles, I did that color matching at the store.
Date published: 2012-01-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not purchase again. We had this tile installed by HD. The tiles are very porous and fragile with too much filler. We went to several HD stores to replace crumbling tiles from original purchase prior to installation, and had trouble finding tiles that were even marginally acceptable. We purchased the threshold from a tile store, and the quality of that travertine we purchased there is like night and day compared to the HD tiles we purchased. Withing a short time after installation tiles developed numerous cracks and holes (filler falling out) in our bathroom floor. The cracks are due to an installer error of not using thick enough backer board. HD offered to replace the entire floor when the original cracks appeared, but we opted to have their installer replaced just the cracked tiles, but the cracks are back and worse than ever. If the tiles were sturdier, we might not have had this problem. Quality of these tiles needs to be improved. I would not recommend.
