Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this liles for my kitchen floor? Is it'll be like very slippery , thank you

Asked by: nick
Hi Nick, Yes, this product can be used on a kitchen floor! This product has a marginal skid resistance, making it safe for normal kitchen floor use. Also, this product is glazed, so water and other spills will not absorb through the glaze. If you are concerned about slip resistance, our Donna Nero offers a higher slip resistance rating, even when wet. This product is also glazed, so it will not absorb water or spills through the glaze. We offer samples of these products adhered to 4.5” x 5” sample cards. If you have any further questions or would like more information about samples, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Grout color?

I installed this tiles in my kitchen floor and look good, but i still didn`t grout it. My question is, what color grout is good for this tiles?
Asked by: Midiciay
Good morning, We suggest using a grey color grout, such as #165 Delorean Gray, for this particular tile. A darker grout will complement the color of this tile well and can also help mask any dirt accumulation. However, you can feel free to use the color you feel would best suit your installation. We’ve added a link below that may help you in your decision, follow it to our Blog and read some of the helpful tips provided by our Communications Specialist – Maggie. Thanks for your interest in our products! Hope that helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT! I have been looking for a long time for the perfect ceramic tile for one area of my kitchen. The color was the key component to my purchasing this tile; the second feature was the character of the tile. This color flows perfectly with my new oak flooring that borders the tile from the living room and dining room. Even though the color from my computer shows the tile more orange, in reality, the tile color is brownish-orange. I was hesitant to order on-line, fearful of being disappointed. Do not worry, you won't be disappointed. Suggestion to whomever decides which products are available in stores.....feature this tile in your stores, and you will increase your sales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful new ceramic tile floor When we wanted to tile the kitchen in our one-hundred year old house we searched for a warm, interesting ceramic tile. The first place to look was a specialty flooring place, but they had nothing which appealed. After visiting a few stores the salesperson at Home Depot suggested we look on-line, and we found this beautiful tile, ordered it and it came quite fast. Our contractor found the tile cut well and was happy with overall handling. Here are pictures of Merola Spanish made tile installed. Our next plan is to install new cabinets with the Corrine counter top in Moss from Home depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ceramic tiles they are a bit lighter in person but still very nice with a warm homey feel - perfect for the great room, living room even dining area. These actually match the ones that I have in my kitchen but my kitchen ones are not polished like these are - these shine. A little high priced but I didn't realize they were imported from Spain and they only have them online so you can't actually see them before you buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like natural stone Beautiful tile. No broken tiles from delivery. Very nicely complimented by the other tile I used, also available at Home Depot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicest tile ever I had these professionally installed in my handicapped shower with a border of imported Talavera Mexican hand painted 4 in. tiles and they came out beautiful. I am remodeling a Spanish Colonial at the moment and chose these for the shower. The tiles were uniform in size and color and installed easily. The pattern on these rivals anything in marble or granite for a fraction of the cost. Its a nice warm, terra cotta, rust color that reminds me of adobe houses in the SW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than expected Tiles were prettier than the photos. Was shipped quickly with free shipping. Looks even nicer when installed. A little on the thin side but overall very pleased with the tiles for the money.
