Answer: 
Hi Jeannie,
This tile can be used on underneath and on a wall behind a wood stove! As long as this tile is not in contact with direct flame it will not be affected by the heat. When manufactured, these tiles are baked in a kiln at temperatures over thousands of degrees, so the indirect heat from the stove is nothing compared to that. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer

Are the Curved Edges Finished so that Bullnose or Trim is Not Needed?

I'm thinking about this for a shower but wondered if the curved edges are finished enough to eliminate the need for trim or bullnose? I think the curved edges would look cool in a rustic bathroom.

Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
There are no bullnoses or trim pieces that directly coordinate with this tile, so a trim piece would be different than the tile. Design elements such as this are matters of personal preference. It is best for you to decide whether or not you think that you will need to have a trim or bullnose or want the tile to stand freely. We have had customers use this tile with and without trim.

It is best for you to decide whether or not you think that you will need to have a trim or bullnose or want the tile to stand freely. We have had customers use this tile with and without trim. Typically, we recommend SchluterTrim http://thd.co/1qBLqjw which is sold at the Home Depot. If you do choose to use this tile without trim, you will see the red ceramic on the side of the tile, which could give an unfinished appearance.

Answer: 
No, they definitely need a trim. We ended up cutting a tile to butt in so we could use a straight trim piece. If you wanted the curved edge to stay you could maybe use some sanded caulk to make it look like grout.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 110 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Tile The tile was used in a shower. The look is fabulous and very different. Installation is a challenge since the tile is not a straight cut. We did a totally random pattern which makes it look more like real stone. We have had a lot of compliments on the tile. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful The colors are beautiful and a very sturdy product very pleased with these tile July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking tile I ordered 8 cases. 1 complete case arrived broken; however, my contractor was able to use it anyway for areas that needed cut pieces. I like the way the finished project looks and have gotten good comments from friends and family. We used pewter caulk which seems to be a good match to the lines in the tile "between stones." We also used 511 Impregnator sealer over tile and grout. The bathroom is small and it's hard to get a good photograph of the complete project, but I tried and did include some. My contractors comment was, now that he has worked with this wavy edge, large tile, he feels confident he can work with any tile. I only took my star rating down because of the complete case of broken tile. February 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thrilled and delighted! After months of agonizing over tile for our two entry ways, we found this. The color and style seemed just what we would like so we ordered it. Putting it down was very weird due to the scalloped edges but once we grasped the concept as a jigsaw puzzle it went quickly. Cutting the tile for the edges was also a bit strange as the scallops had to be retained, but once again it was merely a matter of figuring out what was needed. The instructions were generic, pretty much worthless. Now that it is all down, grouted and sealed, we are extremely pleased. A favorite games is "find the seam", almost impossible to do thanks to the random waviness of the design. Whoever designed this product is a genius! November 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy! This is not in the stores so I was a little nervous about selecting tile online. It turned out great! The tile fits like a jigsaw so it was really easy to apply to my kitchen peninsula. This was my first tile job so it went slow, but it was worth doing it myself (after the free home depot workshop, ofcourse). The ONLY reason why I gave it a 4 was because 2 of the tile came damaged. But I was able to use them for some of the slimmer cuts that I needed. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our kitchen floor Easy to install, looks great, lots of compliments, we love it May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks nice, but a lot of tile cutting I used this tile for a basement shower installation. Given the fairly small space, there were a LOT of cuts. I think out of about 50 tiles, there were only 8 that didn't need to be cut on at least one side. That created a lot of waste. The nice thing was that with such large tiles, tiling the shower was a very fast job, even with all the cutting. This was my first home project with tile work. The uneven edges on the tiles required just a little more planning on where and how to start laying the tiles, and as others have mentioned, be sure to rotate the tiles around when applying so that the pattern isn't so obvious. The wavy lines make for very simple installation, and you don't have to be super critical that every gap between tiles is perfect. I used 1/8 spacers and they seemed to leave a nice line once those spaces and the other gaps between individual stones were grouted. I used Winter Grey grout, unsanded on the tile, and sanded on the trim. Both matched very well. I will say that sponging the grout required CONSTANT rinsing of the sponge. On the unsanded grout, I had to rinse out the sponge in fresh running water after every single swipe with the sponge. It took about 4 hours just to grout the shower walls, due to all the rinsing and wiping. Once I got the grout off of the "stones", it dried in a couple of hours to a haze which wiped off pretty easy with cheesecloth, leaving a very nice looking wall. I'd say well worth the additional effort. April 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attica Caldera Tile This tile is dense and colored perfectly! Each piece interlocks with the next tightly with minimal to no need for grout. I used this on a wall above a fireplace. A great alternative to other faux stones that stick out way too much from the wall April 16, 2016
