What edge trim can be used with this tile in a shower application?

Is there a coordinating tile edge trim available for this tile? If not, what Jolly Edge Trim would coordinate well and would that work with this tile for an edge trim?

Can this tile be used over existing tile on a shower floor?....... And if so, what thinset is recommended?

Asked by: TS
Thank you for your question. In general the Desert Sunset 12 in. x 12 in. x 4 mm Glass Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile can be installed over existing tile for shower floor. However it is recommended that a professional installer/designer be consulted to determine the suitability/maintainability and installation of the item for a particular project.

what kind of tile sealer can be used with unsanded grout for this tile?

I am worried about water penetration, as contractor did not install a vapor barrier behind cement board and only metal mesh taped the joints in cement board with no thin set to fill the joint first, only thin set on top of the metal mesh tape. He claimed a vapor barrier was not necessary behind cement board and that the tile, grout, and silicone sealer is all the water prevention penetration needed. I have read that he should have put vapor barrier behind cement board, thin set the joints, applied an alkali-resistant fiberglass mesh tape, and then the thin set as base for the mosaic tile. I am very concerned I am going to get mold behind the walls now, and want to do everything I can at this point to prevent that. It is being grouted tomorrow. Do you recommend one of those sealants that is used instead of water in the grout preparation or some type of sealer to apply to grout lines once it has been grouted? Also it is nonsanded grout, if that makes any difference.
Asked by: Chatty
Thank you for your question. In general a latex modified thinset and a non sanded grout can provide the acceptable strength for Desert Sunset 12 in. x 12 in. x 4 mm Glass Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile. Sealer is not required for Glass mesh- Mounted mosaic tile as it’s recommended only for natural stones.

What type of thunder or mortar should I use? How should I prep the wall to install the tile over a painted area?

Asked by: Justin
Thank you for your question. A white, latex-additive thinset mortar can be used for Desert Sunset 12 in. x 12 in. x 4 mm Glass Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile. While a porous surface such as new drywall or backer board offers the best bond with thinset, you can tile over a painted wall if you first rough up the surface using an sponge. If walls are brightly colored, prime the walls with a sealer-primer before sanding so that the color won't bleed through the thinset.

Desert Sunset 12 in. x 12 in. x 4 mm Glass Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical yet beautiful I ordered this tile on-line and was a little weary but my fears were put to rest once it was installed. It is stunning and added much-needed color to my otherwise drab kitchen. It was very easy to install and I used the butter cream grout which I highly recommend. There was only one broken tile in the whole case and a half so the quality was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! We used this tile for our new kitchen backsplash and are very happy with the results. The copper mosaic tiles look great and the lighter brown pieces actually came out slightly rosy after grouting. I love the overall effect! We chose to use a stain resistant grout additive rather than sealing the tile after installation at the advice of our contractor. I would buy this tile again and again. The price was great and the look is just what I wanted. See pics. Cabinets: American Woodmark from the Home Depot, Alexandria in Maple, Auburn Glaze. Counter: Silestone Ivory Coast. Grout: Polyblend Sanded, Almond.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great looking product Very easy to install but with so many tile per square foot care must taken to line up grout lines. Finished product looks amazing. Be sure to inspect every sheet if possible because the glass tiles are easy to crack. The backsplash turned out good and will use the same product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Updated kitchen backsplash with this tile this summer. Looks fantastic, will go with any decor because of basic neutrals, buts hints of shimmer add elegance and wow factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY NICE BLING Very impressed with these tiles. LOVE the colors, adds the perfect bling to your design, and you can also put these anywhere. I have put a square foot tile on my side table and they really dress them up. so you don't have to tile these you can be creative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look and design of this tile I looked for a long time to find a tile that had copper tones to it. This is perfect and I love the black in it also. I wanted something that cleans easily as it was going in the kitchen with water and cooking present. It had to be easy to clean and this is! Easy to install and cut. Upkeep is super easy-just wipe it down with window cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this backsplash tile! This was my first project and I am so happy I went with these tiles! The backsplash turned out great in my kitchen and went well with my black granite counters and oak cabinets. I used Simple Mat adhesive, which was difficult to cut but much cleaner and simpler than dealing with thinset would have been. I used a butter cream grout and then caulked the edges with an almond colored caulk and I am so pleased with the results. I bought these tiles at the store so I was able to inspect them and ensure that none were broken before buying them. The mesh backing was easy to cut and I only had to nip a few tiles in half to fit around electrical outlets. Simple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! We just recently put this up,as our backsplash! This was our first tile project and it was very easy! We used the sand stone color grout and it looks perfect with the colors!
