Just installed this backsplash over the weekend. It's not even grouted in yet, but I still love the look. It went in very easily. The pattern is random enough, so that you don't have to worry too much about matching it when you're filling in holes. The only drawback is that you really have to look through the sheets of tile to make sure none of the natural stone pieces are broken. That was one trip back to the store we didn't need.

Absolutely love this tile. I have it in my kitchen and everyone comments on how beautiful it is. It also served as the foundation to all my colors on the first floor; which I love.

I absolutely love my new wall tile! I was at Home Depot looking for backsplash tile for my kitchen when I saw this Paradise Bay tile. (it didn't match the coloring I wanted for the kitchen- I chose a different tile for that, also at Home Depot). But, I fell in love with this tile and HAD to use it somewhere. I decided it would work in our little powder room bathroom, which was kind of bland. I chose to use the tile on the full wall behind the pedestal sink -the entire wall, top to bottom. I am so pleased with how it looks. We used Light Smoke grout color. The pricing was reasonable too. It looks more expensive than it is.

Just put in about 30 sheets on my back splash in kitchen. The mesh backing is very sturdy and held up very well in the wet saw. An occasional sheet would have a crooked tile on it, and would need to be pulled off and re-set. Depending on how it layed, I either pulled the piece off and taped it back in place. If the backing mesh became stretched, I would cut the mesh out, and then tape it in place. The little silver tiles are what looks like aluminum pieces glued over a piece of stone. When cutting, the silver pieces can come off and need to be re-glued. This only happened a couple times. The toughest part of the install was grouting. The stone tiles suck up moisture while the glass not at all. The stone tiles would have the grout dry over the top of them very quickly and were difficult to clean when taking off the excess grout with a damp sponge. Might make sense to seal the tiles, or using a grout release before tiling. Not overly difficult, I spread grout, while the wife came back 15-20 minutes later and was sponging up. I waffled between white and grey grout and chose and am happy with white. I ordered this for same day pickup and was concerned I might find broken tile pieces, but I only found a couple blemishes or issues as described above. Tile was cut with a pretty basic wet tile saw, with average diamond blade.

The end result was great. I ended up having to contact the manufacturer for clearer instructions, i.e. can you hang on drywall (no - requires backer board). Their customer service was responsive and timely. So I ripped out the drywall and installed Hardy board I bought at Depot. Then I laid out the tiles dry on the floor to ensure how they would be installed on my wall. Make sure you use white thinset that is compatible with glass tiles. Using a ledger board I started at the second row and worked my way to the ceiling. I used 1/8" spacers from Depot to maintain spacing. Then the next morning I removed the ledger board and installed the bottom row. This absolutely prevents sagging or shifting of the tiles.
I had to cut tiles to finish both at the ceiling and the floor. Remember, the tiles are staggered. So I used a Dremel tool with a Dremel 545 Diamond Wheel I bought at Depot. These tiles are small and this worked really well trimming the 1/4" I needed to make them fit perfectly (Ceilings and floors aren't perfect). Run the tool at full speed and go slow! You need safety glasses, too!
I used the Mushroom colored NONSANDED grout. I ordered online from Depot on a Sunday and had it by Friday. I used almost all of the ten pounds to cover the wall which is 3'x8'.
I also had to exchange about 8 tiles for ones not damaged, but fine, they get manhandled at the stores, not really a big deal. And Depot processed my exchange with no problem.

This product installs very easy and looks beautiful. The colors reflect beautifully in natural lighting.
