Answer: 
Good morning,
We recommend using a diamond blade to cut these tiles. The edges may be quite sharp after the cut is made, so we recommend handling with care and using a file to finish off any rough cuts.
Hope that helps!

Answer: 
Good morning,
You may use a smoothed silicone bead, or our Merola Alloy Pencil trim installed perpendicular (flat on top of the edge), or our Merola SuperTrim, which is available in silver aluminum, or stainless steel.

Can this be used in a fireplace as a heat reflector?

I'd like to line the back of the fireplace so more heat is reflected out in to the room. Will this work?

Answer: 
Hi DJ,
We understand how you'd like this idea to work, but we don't recommend it. The heat reflected would be minimal, and it's possible that the constant high heat would damage the glue on the reverse of the metal facing. It's also a possibility that the soot and general atmosphere of the fireplace would cause significant changes to the appearance of the tile face as well as the grout you use.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Cool Tile! I purchased this tile to finish off my kitchen remodel. I used this tile as a backsplash from the top of the counter right up the the bottom of the cabinets, and as the entire backing of my stainless steel cooktop up to the bottom of the fume hood. This is a beautiful tile. It can be a bit of a job installing as some of the tiles can shift a little. I recommend using spacers where needed. You'll see that some of the spaces can widen, and narrow as you press the sheets of tile on the wall. Cutting theses tile can be a little tough also. I purchased a new high end diamond blade for my tile saw. I also left the plastic film on the tile during the cutting process, as the tile seemed to cut better with the stainless steel face down. The tile can get scratched from the table top of the tile saw. So, I made all my cutting marks on the back side of the ceramic tile, and cut face down. This process seemed to give me better results. Once all of the tile is up, you MUST USE NON-SANDED grout. Regular sanded grout will scratch the surface. When completed, this tile really looks great. It gives a beautiful shimmer under the lights. This tile is a little pricey, but it's worth it. I highly recommend it. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just beautiful! It took me 5 months to find the perfect tile to put behind my oven in my condo. It was well worth the wait. Anytime I have people over, they always comment on how much they love my backsplash. The tiles are easy to work with. Just make sure you leave the protective plastic over the stainless face, until you have mounted them on the wall. The stainless will scratch if you are not careful. I clean them with the same polish I use to clean my appliances, and they look fantastic. September 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful and Easy to install Although a bit pricey, this tile works great for my kitchen backsplash. The install is fairly easy, but #1 tip is to buy a sheet or two of the 1"x1" tiles to finish ends and go around outlets with minimal cutting. Unsanded grout only!! April 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super tile! I used this stainless subway as a border for my black granite shower. I cut it in one inch strips by snipping the mesh backing horizontally, then placed the foot long strips end to end. Wow! it looks awesome! Its a little pricey but what a great looking product. Loved it. Ordering online takes me a week to receive my product, so my clients dont have to wait long at all... Thanks Home Depot for a great relationship! November 30, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking tile, quality product! I love the classic subway tile and this stainless steel tile looks great in my kitchen as an accent to glass subway patterned tile. I used it as a backsplash and while the tile is a little pricey (although still cheaper than other tile shops in the area) when used as an accent, it is a very affordable option. It really makes the glass tile pop! Very contemporary look. I would recommend purchasing this product. September 8, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great look, like a million bucks. Very nice tile, I used 30sq.ft as a kitchen backsplash. I had many cuts and that was not an easy task but when all finished it looks like I spent a million bucks. The tiles were very hard to find, but Nora in the flooring and tile area did what ever was needed to find these for me!!!! Thanks Nora!!!!!!!!!!! June 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I was looking for. Made my kitchen pop. I have a red wall that when the stainless steel was added to it made my kitchen look very classy. September 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Expensive but Looks great! This tile was a little spendy but used as an accent with less expensive tile it really had a modern contemporary look. Can be cut to be used as a border. Really happy with these tile. May 19, 2010
