Took me a while, but the titles are installed and the final product looks great. Note: It won't be perfect as the pieces are all unique so you might not want to put these in a highly lit room. I wanted to share some tips which worked for me. Use a "L" shaped ruler or something similar to crease the titles so that you can actually cut the pieces to size with a utility knife. The rows are so tight you can't just stick the utility knife inbetween to cut. Lay out the tiles as if they were on the wall to ensure they interlock correctly. Save the little pieces that you have after you cut the tiles as you can use these to fill in holes and gaps. Don't try and cut the tiles more than once if you didn't cut it exactly the first time deal with it and move on or use it for a different row as the pieces on the edge will break and won't cut correctly. Stager the tiles for each row you install (i.e., if you start with a whole piece on the left side, use a half of piece on the next row) so you don't get the zipper effect that others have noted.

We had a professional install our tile while he was there also doing our floor. It took him a while and we do have the "zipper" effect in one spot. There are two tiles that stand out a bit because the coloring is a little different but you have to expect that when using a natural product. The tile is good quality and the finished install looks great and fits right in our log home kitchen!

Absolutely love the end result of this tile! It's a little difficult lining up pieces that fit together snug though. Lay them out on the floor and make sure they connect before trying to slap them on your wall! Since they are gapless, it made installation easier since the gaps didn't need to be filled in. Also, it gets a bit darker after you seal it, thankfully.

This product was installed by a friend who does this for a living. He said it was easy to put up and was one of the best looking he's done. I liked it cuz no grout mess in between. Love the outcome!

This is a beautiful product! We installed this as the back wall of the tub surround in our bathroom. A full wall of it. I ordered online hoping to get the same color of tiles and we did...we noticed in the store it depended on if it was ordered at the same time, the color differences could be a lot. Use gray adhesive so if it comes through the cracks you will be less likely to see it. Be sure it is pushed together good and level before going forward. If you go slow and make sure each tile is correct before moving forward you will be very pleased with the outcome. Be sure to stagger the rows in a brick laying style so the tiles won't look stacked. If done carefully you will not see the tile seams, however it is very difficult to hide them. You can go back in and fill some cracks with adhesive so it's not so obvious. We also cut the 12x12 into 4" strips and made a stripe on the other adjoining walls in between larger tiles. This went very well and looks very professional. The overall look of the job is beautiful spa like finish. There will not be water on the tiles as it is only a tub not a shower and I would be concerned placing them in a shower as water could get behind if precautions are not taken. The only other concern I have is keeping it dust free. Using a vacuum with a brush should help. We have only tiled once before, this may not be for beginners, my husband is pretty handy and I am picky so together it worked for us. Love the spa like look. You will need a tile cutter to cut tiles where needed.
