Can u glue this to drywall?

Asked by: Bert
Good Afternoon, Yes, you can apply this product to clean drywall. We recommend using a latex-modified thinset or polymer-modified thinset for an installation like this. Prior to install, be sure the drywall is free of dust, dirt and grime to ensure the surface is cleaned and ready for installation. Please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Customer Reviews

Arabesque Orion 9-7/8 in. x 11-1/8 in. x 6 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, unique, good quality I fell in love with this shape of tile and knew I wanted to use it to accent the space above the stove and behind the exhaust hood. This tile not only matched the color of subway tile I was using for the rest of the kitchen backsplash, but it was also the most affordable. The fading of brown on the edges gives it a rustic feel but not too much. In summary, a great deal, beautiful color, and seems sturdy and high quality. The hardest part was planning the cuts, so that an even amount was cut off each side to achieve symmetry in the design. Also: despite being on a mesh backing, use spacers to keep tiles from sagging or tilting before you grout. Overall, I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the look of this tile The tile is beautiful. I agonizingly picked this tile at the end of a total gut renovation, to my entire house. It was not in the budget but totally worth it. It really makes my kitchen beautiful. I originally was just going to use it for the backsplash, but I love it so much I'm going to tile 2 walls of my kitchen with it, when I can find the additional funds. It's just looks so lovely and interesting. The tile guy does not like installing it. It is very time consuming as there are a lot of cuts. It's a very meticulous job. This is his first time working with this tile and he's doing a masterful job. There were several broken tiles, which he used to make cuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but brittle We ordered these tiles for our master bathroom, for a sink backsplash and niche background. Some of the individual tiles were cracked when we opened the box, maybe 3-4 out of the 12 sheets we ordered. Not a huge deal, and our tile installer did a terrific job cutting them to size for installation. They look awesome with a bright white grout!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty tile - very tricky to install! Lovely and unique shape and design. Now that it's up, it's stunning, but realize that any straight edge will require you to custom cut all those little tiles in half (or, even worse, less than half!). Challenging for a DIY project (and we've done a lot of tile before). Also, we ordered one sheet as a sample to see if we liked it before ordering the 14 boxes we needed for our kitchen. The sample was a distinctly different color! Thankfully, the 14 other boxes matched each other. No question we could not have installed the sample with the other tiles without it being obviously different!

This tile is so beautiful and exactly what I was looking for in our kitchen back splash. My husband who is not a builder but quite handy was able to install it himself with renting a tile saw and it came out great! My only criticism is that the piece I ordered as a sample was not the EXACT same color as what I ordered even though the name was the same. Slightly disappointing because the sample color was exactly what I wanted. The actual received color is slightly less gray blue and a hint more aqua blue but thankfully it still worked for our kitchen. Side note: I saw this exact same tile in our local tile shop for double the price! I felt good knowing I saved money ordering from HD and the shipping was perfect, no broken tiles at all. Overall extremely happy.

The tile looks beautiful as our laundry room backsplash, truly even better in person. It is a little darker in person which we liked. We also looked at purchasing the Merola Tile Arabesque Aella, which was too bright for what we were looking for.
