With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, this tile can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout and is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms.

Is this suitable for a kitchen backsplash?

Is it difficult to install?
Asked by: Leslie
Thank you for your question. In general Desert Trail Pattern Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile is suitable for Kitchen backsplash. It would be similar to tile installation on a backsplash and the level of difficulty is relative to the project.

Desert Trail 16 in. x 16 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (8.9 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible service... Majority of tiles we're broken. Reordered a second time and results were even worse. Can't submit zero stars!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from the product itself is great once you get passed the hurdles the tile is ease on cutting and laying - you have to be careful with the pattern since this is natural stone the cut of some pieces are off, but I was able to fix that as I recut the tile when laying it . I was not pleased with the shipping of this tile- 12 pieces to a box and each time there were at least 4-5 broken pieces- even when the company sent replacement tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Pleased! Coming from us, this is a huge compliment to Home Depot! We are from small, sole owned lumber yard and flooring business and had been non-Home Depot shoppers in the past. With this purchase, it has to be the most impressive experience with Home Depot ever for us! We have sold our business, but tried to purchase the tiles from the new owners who were purchasing from the same manufacture as Home Depot. The manufacture was not very helpful with time or pricing, so since we hauling this to Montana from Arizona, we decided to check Home Depot online. Well, we were able to get the same material, so the same pricing, delivered to our home rather than hauling it ourselves 1100 miles! The tile and all of the install products we also ordered, all arrived on time, for the same price and out of 2 pallets of slate tile, maybe 3 total broken, which we used where cuts were needed anyway. The tile like most slate is a challenge to install as it is all irregular, but it is absolutely beautiful and we love it! We are so very pleased with this purchase and would highly recommend these products to anyone thinking about slate tile! We used the random pattern on the floor of a large bath and walk in shower, with the 16" square tile on the walls. It is beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color is very light I haven't installed the tile yet, but it is very light in color. When I think of slate, I think of gray. This tile is pretty, but think of beige sand when ordering. There are multiple colors in the tile... even some grays, but the primary color is tan... Perfect if you want the look of slate but don't want your room to dark

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 95 % broken The tile that came in was 95% broken both times I purchased this. Will not be ordering this product again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turned Out Beautiful Had a few pieces that were broken, which was anticipated after reading other reviews. Unfortunately, they were all large pieces which ended up messing up the pattern at the end. But, all in all it turned out nice, we did not grout it just dry stacked them which is the look I prefer!
