We just picked up 30 cases of this tile and my husband noticed on the box it has a warning to avoid using a 50% offset. The salesperson did not inform us of this, if it is in fact an issue. Thank you...

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. In general 1/3rd offset pattern is suggested to minimize lip page as per ASTM standards. It is recommended that a professional installer be consulted to check if the herringbone pattern installation result would be satisfactory for this particular installation.

Answer: 
I use this tile in many projects, and I always set it in offset patterns.
However, you should understand the reason for the warning about a herringbone pattern.
Ceramic tile is made from clay. When it's fired in a kiln, the clay shrinks and warps slightly. This is especially true for large, cheap tiles like these.
Inspect these tiles closely, and you'll notice that they're slightly domed. If you Read More

However, you should understand the reason for the warning about a herringbone pattern.
Ceramic tile is made from clay. When it's fired in a kiln, the clay shrinks and warps slightly. This is especially true for large, cheap tiles like these.
Inspect these tiles closely, and you'll notice that they're slightly domed. If you set them in a 50% offset, they'll align in a pattern that makes the curvature especially obvious.
In some applications, this matters. For example, it'd be especially noticeable on a countertop. But on the floor or in a shower, it may not be a concern.
If you're new to setting tile, you should do a trial layout with your tile to see how it looks before you install it with thinset. If the curvature is an issue, consider laying it with a 1/3 offset. I usually do this, and nobody but me ever notices the curvature. Read Less

Answer: 
It should be laid with a 1/3 offset, but can be laid in different patterns vertically or horizontally, as long as the offset is followed.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 207 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Uptown tile for bathroom and kitchen We installed the metro gris tile in our kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and bonus room off the kitchen It looks great and is easy to sweep, mop, or wipe up. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does tend to show marks easily, like every time you come in form outside and walk across with your shoes on, you'll notice. So, we've started a new tradition of taking our shoes off when we come in. Then it stays beautiful without constant mopping. When our guys installed it, they did mention there was a lot of "ghosting" of the grout ... it was very hard to get the grout off the tiles and get it looking clean. But somehow they got it done. Regarding choosing the right grout color for this tile ... We used pewter grout on the metro gris tiles in the bathroom. From a photo I had of the work progress, I thought the pewter grout was too brownish. So we got the "dove gray" custom color grout for the kitchen. When I arrived on site and saw the pewter grout in the bathroom, it was PERFECT! The problem had been the lighting in the photo. And then ... when I saw the dove gray grout in the kitchen in person ... it was too blue/lavender ... oh darn. Oh well! It still looks fine in the kitchen, even with the mis-matched grout ... after all, the grout is a small amount of the whole surface area. Mostly you see the beautiful tiles. But now I know, for future reference ... if you want a grout color that will blend in with this tile (so the grout lines don't jump out at you), and one that matches the color of the tiles themselves ... the in-stock pewter grout is the one to get.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Porcelain Tile with and Amazing Look! The installation was a breeze. This is exactly the kind of tile we were looking for. It totally completed our kitchen look and we couldn't be any happier with the turnout! Some of the tiles have tiny blemishes on them but very hard to spot. Overall for the quality of the product the price was great! March 8, 2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Looks pretty, terrible to keep clean My husband and I had our eyes on this tile for a long time before purchasing it to lay in our kitchen. We used dark grout, and although we were happy with the look of the tile with the dark grout upon finishing installation, we immediately realized how difficult it is to keep clean! Just like a dark colored car, everything shows up on this dark tile. We are used to walking into the kitchen with our shoes on, but we need to change house rules now because I just don't have it in me to mop every day. If there are any tips on keeping this tile clean, please share your wisdom. We just installed this two weeks ago and we're already regretting the dark tile choice. Go with light tile, dark grout. It's much easier to keep clean. P.S. The porcelain tile chips easily. Be very careful. February 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful! Did my shower and bathroom floor, in lighter color, and turned out awesome! I've read some comments about cleaning but i squeegie mine before I get out. Can't go wring for the price. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Tile! This tile was very nice quality and looks beautiful on the floor of my bathroom and vanity area. It has such a nice look to it and just love the feel and quality of the tile. June 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by great tile easy to work with,can use the smallest tile cutter to make good fits good looking when finished and easy care for every day use June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beware! Looks Great, Poor Dimensional Quality This tile is very clean and modern looking, particularly when installed with a pewter grout and Schluter stainless steel trim. Laid about 200 sqft in master bath on floor, shower walls and bench, and soaker tub enclosure. Very pleased with the appearance. HOWEVER, be aware that the dimensional QC by the manufacturer is very poor. Most tiles were "off" by 1/16 to 1/8" in width and as much as 1/4" in length! You can throw away your tile spacers and just eyeball the spacing. May 14, 2016
