With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, this tile can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout and is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms.

Customer Questions & Answers

Is this tile suitable for kitchen counter tops? How porous is it.? Does it require special sealant? If so, how often? What is the sku number for the

Asked by: john
you can use it for a kitchen countertop but you are going to want to use 511 impregnator sealer after it is installed so that no food residue can get into the pores. Not as pourous as slate but your definately going to want to seal it if used in kitchen, bathroom, or used as flooring.

What is assembled height?

I see that the tile itself is 1/2" thick. But the assembled height says 2". What makes up the other 1 1/2"?
Asked by: Anonymous
The tile itself is really about 7/16" thick, figure 1/4"x 3/8" trowel, assembled was about 9/16" above the backer board for me. Maybe they included a thick backer board or something to get that measurement.

Is this honed or polished giving it a smooth or satin finish ?

Asked by: Ryeguy
Honed, it will have a satin finish, The stone does have some texture to it still and will change color some with sealing. I should have a review of this product with before and after sealing pictures.

I had read some of the reviews that mentioned several broken tiles in their packages, but I picked up my online order from the store and did not have one broken tile inside! This floor tile looks great for my bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be prepared to pick through them! I love this tile, and it took 3 different orders of a total of 64 boxes to find 15 boxes of tile that look like the picture. The rest were unusable. They looked like completely different tile and nothing I would ever put in my home. It took several hours to go through each tile and separate out the 2-3 in each box that were lovely. The good news is that Home Depot was completely willing to take back the boxes of unused tile with a 100% refund. And my bathroom floor looks amazing. Soft swirls, consistent grey color, great value. It was a lot of work and I would do it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This tile will STAIN over things like water. I love the appearance of this tile, but water WILL STAIN this tile. Maybe it's not 100% pure water, but 90% pure water, will near immediately stain this tile, even if it's sealed with 3 coats of sealant. Those little drops you get on the floor when you're loading the dishwasher or washing your hands will be the cause of those ridiculous, hideous, and prominent stains. I spent a few thousand dollars on this tile, and it's worthless. See picture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking stone tile If you like quartzite, then this should work for you- it is VERY gray-green, not hint of brown or warm colors, so be sure of color palette.
