Answer: 
My son-in-law works in kitchen construction and gave me a piece of plastic edging made to be used for the end of the backsplash. It comes in colors (I used tan) and you nail it into the wall. It gives the job a real professional look.

Answer: 
Because it is natural stone you really don't need to finish the edge, just get a tube of tile grout to match the field grout and apply a small bead. Looks good.

Answer: 
We found some bronze pieces to close out the ends. They are made from a plastic type material. They tie into little squares that will be incorporated into the floor tile.

Have the tiles, but need to pick up installation supplies. Can someone who has worked with this advise on which grout (sanded/non-sanded, powder/premix) and trowel size I should use? Should this tile be sealed before applying the grout?

Answer: 
I used a sanded grout, and a small toothed mortar trowel, if that's what you were asking. Thin set mortar was white, you aren't going to see the mortar once you grout. I used "sand stone" grout because I wanted to bring up the honey tone to match my sink...

Answer: 
We used unsanded PolyBlend in Delorean Gray. We used a plastic 4" wide putty knife to apply the grout. We did not seal the marble. You should never use a sanded grout with a polished marble like this mosaic.

If you mean the emperado bamboo? Yes, there is a nice subtle creamy, celery, and seashell pink one. Sorry, I don't remember the name of it, but they had them in stock at my HD. Thinking about using it to rehab my fireplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back splash Perfect match for our granite countertops. Beautiful natural stone!
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! Incredibly modern, sleek & stunning tile, easy to work with and makes quite an impact in our kitchen design!
Date published: 2012-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We just installed this backsplash to match our new Quartz countertop from HD. It matches perfectly. Its not too busy and not too plain. Easy to install and we did not need a tile saw. A pair of ceramic nippers is all you need to cut this. We chose to grout as well but you would not need to with this design.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Brittle when cut Small brittle tile(however attractive) that fracture and fall off mesh backing when cut with wet saw. Was taping "loose teeth" to hold them in place for glue/grout, but after a few cuts, realized this was not gonna work. Returned the rest, purchased Sonoma Blend for $5 less per sheet and worked/looked great!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emperador Blend Bamboo Backsplash tile The tile is perfect; our installer did a great job. Works well with the switchplate covers and the Golden Jade granite w/ the light cabinets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fireplace surround We had the tile installed but I'm happy with the outcome!
Date published: 2016-07-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek tile with a very high end look I am writing this review to offer some advice on the installation of this tile. To avoid a visible seam between each sheet, I cut them lengthwise into 4 3X12 inch sections and staggered the starting rows just like one would do with subway tile. I sealed before and after grouting with a "wet look" sealer and it looks fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tile for backsplash! Easy to cut with tile saw or nippers. Looked great. Some seemed to have a yellow shade, but that was just caused by the plastic packaging. Be sure to use non-sanded grout since the joints are small.
