Emperador cafe is a natural stone marble that illustrates a classical romance. With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, emperador cafe can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout. This particular marble is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms. NOTE: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. After installation, vendor disclaims any liabilities.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous accents The Emperador Cafe marble mosaic is very easy to cut and attach. While it covers minor imperfections on drywall, window frames and similar surfaces, it sets unobtrusive accents that match a wide variety of materials and styles. I chose it to complement other materials in various rooms. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this TILE on my fireplace hearth! I bought this tile because I wanted to use some shiny elements but didn't want to do the project with all marble or granite. My old hearth tile was disgusting and broken.Mixing this marble/glass tile with affordable ceramic tile gave my project a great glitz. Well worth the price. November 28, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This tile was very easy to apply. Measuring & cutting were extremely simple. Looks beautiful! This tile is very easy to work with.It looks high end,modern, & very attractive. October 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Tile! I had to purchase on-line since the store didn't carry it anymore. Home Depot associate gave me all the info I needed to order it myself. Delivery was quicker than I expected! Very satisfied! September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchen Backsplash I used this tile to create a mosaic tile backsplash in my kitchen approx. 30 sq. feet. of tile was used. The sheets made it easy to install and it looks great! The only issue that I had was that some of the sheets of tile had a plastic backing that had to be peeled off before installation which was anooying. December 28, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Modern Look The sheets I purchased did not have any kind of film backing on them as the previous reviewer stated. They are joined together in square foot sheets by a mesh and paper grid on the back, making them very easy to install. Cutting the mesh is easy with a blade or scissors. The natural stone of this tile also makes it easy to split the individual tiles if you need to size them into a corner or around pipes. I simply used a flathead screwdriver and hammer and found they split in half with one or two hits. I grouted with "bone" colored unsanded grout and so the lighter veins in the tile pops forward. However, grouting with a "grey" or darker colored grout would also look fabulous, brining out the deep grey in the tile. This tile, with updated brushed nickel fixtures in the bath looks very modern and fresh. I used it on the wall over the sink and around the top of an already installed shower surround. It finishes the room nicely and makes it look far more luxurious than the couple hundred dollars I spent on all the tile and supplies. Big bang for your buck. October 11, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding versitile perfect for many applications Beautiful natural stone tile with subtle color variations. I used it as an accent tile to update two 1970s era bathrooms and for the shower floor. The 5/8 inch tiles fit any space with no need to cut. Perfect for DIY, looks like it was done by a pro!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn"t look like the pictures I triple checked that I got the correct items, and I did. But this tile is far blander looking in person then the pictures. Disappointed. July 16, 2013
