Answer: 
The tiles vary a lot in size and shape. Definitely some will be in the size you're hoping for, though they may not be perfectly square, either. If you buy a couple of boxes, probably some of them will fit into your grid.

Answer: 
Tiles will vary from about 3 7/8" to about 4 1/8". You would have to order a lot to pluck out the ones that are 3 7/8". They cut very easy with a tile saw. Then you can use a sander or diamond blade to round edges if necessary. These tiles are beautiful when sealed with a stone sealer.

Answer: 
Mastic then set by hand. Spacers won't be much use because they vary in size smaller and larger than 4 inch, and many are not square. You'll have to eyeball it and choose each tile carefully to keep any kind of consistent line going. Let dry, seal the tiles, grout, wipe thuroughly and remove any haze (this is tough because of the imperfections in the slate faces), seal everything again, finish.

Answer: 
Figure out your layout and cut tiles as needed. Natural stone product such as this tile will have some flaws. Order about 10% extra tile. Open the tile and lay them out and look them over carefully. Be sure to mix up the colors and thicknesses. Use flawed tiles for cutting peices. Tiles cut easily with a diamond blade wet saw.

Make sure wall is smooth, flat and clean. Strip any old wall coverings. Use a polymer enhanced thinset mortar with a long working time. This mortar will work over primed or painted drywall, cement board or plywood. Use 1/8 x 1/8 square notch trowel to apply thinset to wall. Back butter tiles that are thicker or not flat on the back. Press firmly to wall and use tile spacers no less than 1/8".
Let dry a couple days before grouting. It may help to seal the tile before grouting with a water based stone sealer. Thoroughly clean off grout haze and then seal again in a week or so once grout is cured.
I recommend using a darker colored grout for kitchens. Light color grout will soil and stain in a kitchen, especially near cooking areas. Read Less

Answer: 
kt,
Aside from ensuring your tiles are properly sealed prior to grouting, this installation doesn't differ from what you would do with any other tile for a backsplash installation. I recommend viewing our install guides on back splash installation and following along with those for steps on how-to.

Answer: 
Slate is natural stone and holds up well out doors if it is grouted and sealed well. If you live in a freeze/thaw area, frost wedging will over time break up tiles anywhere water can seep into exposed cracks. Best to use a well gauged tile for outdoors. Check out Brazilian multicolor. It is the best slate I have used outdoors.

Multi Color 4 In. x 4 In. Tumbled Slate Floor and Wall Tile (1 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love slate floors I was unaware that the stone had curves corners and unfortunately we ran out of product, due to the contractor under estimating the amount we needed. We had to go to another tile store to purchase additional tiles. Home Depot does not stock them and we were in the middle of the project. The tiles we were able to purchase had straight corners. The contractor blended the grout around the second set so that they appeared to have rounded corners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice look.. These tiles are great looking in my kitchen! Just be sure to order extra because they break places where they have natural veins! I ordered 3 boxes and each box arrived with several already broken in the box.... I think its just a natural stone and its going to happen! Still very happy with how it turned out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would not want on floor I am using the tiles on a window sill, so they will be OK. The thickness and shapes are very inconsistent. There is no way this would work on a floor. Need to be finished with something to bring out the natural colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tiles I used these to replace the old pinkish shiny tiles that were on the fireplace, these came with the house when I bought them. These multicolored slate tiles look awesome around the fireplace. The picture they have above does not do them justice. If you go look into the more views and see the ones with the different colors that will give you a better view of how they really look. After doing the fireplace, and loving it so much, I went around the house looking for other places i could put these tiles. Maybe the bigger ones in the bathroom floors. I love the look, they have changed the way the whole living room looks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful... But order A LOT Did a 30 sq foot kitchen backsplash with these and it came out gorgeous. But, there were A LOT of problems with the slate. We knew slate could be finicky so we ordered 45 sq feet, 50% more than what we measured for. We almost didn't have enough to finish because of the condition of the tiles. First off, they came in damp deteriorating boxes that stank of mold and mildew. Some of the tiles have a greenish tint, but we weren't sure what was color and what might be mold. So we had to wash every tile with a bleach solution prior to installation. Many of the tiles were chipped and already broken. We were doing a diagonal layout so we tried to salvage as much of the broken tiles as we could with the small piece cuts, but almost 12 sq feet were unusable out of 45. Secondly, they say 4 inch, but they vary a lot. Some are 3.75, some are 4.25 , most aren't square, some are slanted, and depth varies. In other words forget the spacers, you have to set these by sight and juggle them around to keep any kind of lines going. Your grout lines will be odd sizes around each tile. Thirdly, they are fragile. Some shatter in the saw, some when setting them in place with barely any pressure, some break just taking them out of the boxes. It came out beautiful in the end, but it almost wasn't worth the headache. Installation took more than twice as long than it would have with normal backsplash products. Even the grout was tough, because wiping took forever with all the imperfections, nooks and crannies that it would be stuck in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Slate tiles, not for all applicatons. These tiles look great, with a wide variety of colors, with some really nice greens and golds in addition to the more usual red/blue/gray slate colors. Two main drawbacks: 1. While my cheap wet saw may have been at fault, these are hard to cut cleanly. The vibrations of the cutting tended to cause the slate to de-laminate and split into rough fragments. Even for simple cuts in half, I probably had to throw away as many tiles as I successfully cut. If your application requires a lot of cutting for any reason, be warned. 2. There was a relatively high rate of uneven, pitted, and otherwise unacceptable tiles. Probably as much as 20% if you count the tiles with rounded corners. For my application (tiling the exterior of a dome-style pizza oven) I needed a lot of partial tiles, and so I managed to use almost all of the flawed ones by cutting off the bad part and using the remainder somewhere that needed a half-tile or less. But for more normal applications, plan on buying extra. Also, as with many slates, there was a lot of variation in the thickness of the tiles. If you're doing a backsplash or similar and you don't mind a slightly rustic look, these are great, but I wouldn't envy you trying to make these into a smooth floor. So far the tiles seem durable even in the outdoor setting; I installed them in August, and I've seen no damage despite a couple of snows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product as described It is exactly as I anticipated. However, I was hopingfor a little more multi in the box I ordered as samples. Instead they seemed almost the same.
