what color is the grout used in the tile? Or what is the recommended grout color to use with this tile? thanks
Asked by: raeon
Good Afternoon, The grout lines shown in the tile are faux grout lines that do not have a specific grout color associated with them. Home Depot always recommends using Custom Building Products installation materials. #380 Haystack, #180 Sandstone and #45 Summer Wheat are all great options for coordinating with the “grout” throughout the tile. Keep in mind that grout color is a matter of personal preference and it is best to decide for yourself what you feel matches best. Home Depot offers dried grout samples in the flooring department that we recommend comparing with the product prior to making any grout purchases. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

How many do I need for an area of 27 sf?

Asked by: Olga
Good morning, Our Avila Arenal is sold an each that covers 1.05 square feet, so you would need 26 tiles at minimum to cover 27 square feet. We also recommend ordering 10% additional material to account for potential breakage and tricky cuts, bringing it to 29 pieces total. If you end up with excess material, you may return any full, unused pieces of product to your local Home Depot store – though it’s handy to hang onto some extra tile in case you need to make a future repair. The Home Depot has a "no-hassle" returns policy and accepts returns both online and at any local Home Depot location, should you decide to return the product. You are also welcome to contact our Customer Service department at 800-963-7652 with any questions you may have concerning our products. Thanks for your interest in our products! Hope that helps!

Can I use for wood? Thanks

Asked by: Renata
Good Afternoon, We would not recommend installing this tile to wood. We always recommend installing tile onto a cement backer board, such as James Hardie HardieBacker, which is sold at the Home Depot. This can be installed directly over wood. It is a little more time consuming, but offers the best results. If you have any further questions about this or any of our other products, please contact our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Hi - I am doing a screen porch floor. Would this be suitable? It will be very cold in the winter as it is located in northern Michigan.

Asked by: k2l2
Good Morning, We would not recommend using this tile where freezing temperatures are present. This tile is ceramic, so if it is exposed to water the tile could possibly crack. Seeing as it is a screened in porch, it is not as much of a concern, but it is still a possibility. For these settings, we recommend using porcelain, which is frost resistant. For a similar design, we would recommend our Classico mosaic http://thd.co/1VU7G5q or our Deco Calzado Ardesia http://thd.co/24fhloW. The Classico has the bright colors, similar to the Avila Arenal Décor that you have chosen, whereas the Deco Calzado Ardesia has the same slab format. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by: tileshopper
Hello There, This product is great for a shower floor! This tile is glazed, so the water will not absorb through the glaze. Also, this tile meets ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance, making it very safe for this wet location. Be advised that this tile does have a textured, multi-dimensional surface. For most customers this is not an issue standing on it with bare feet, but for some it is uncomfortable and it is best for you to decide if you feel as though this is appropriate for this setting. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Baseboard Tiles

Are there tiles that are of the same texture and depth of color that can be used for baseboards? Also, is there any source in Dallas to be able to see this tile in person? Thank you very much!
Asked by: NeedorWANT
Good Morning, We actually carry two different coordinating tiles for Avila series. We would recommend the bullnose piece as the best option for a baseboard tile, as it has a finished edge. If you want to use the Décor or Taco pieces as baseboard tiles, you can use grout above the tile to create an angled ‘finished edge’ so the ceramic edges aren’t exposed. Merola Tile Avila Cotto Bullnose 3 in. x 12-1/2 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Trim Tile Merola Tile Avila Arenal Taco 2-3/4 in. x 2-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Trim Tile (5-Pack) As far as your second question, this is not an in-store product, and therefore cannot be seen at a location in Dallas. Please contact our customer service team if you have any other questions at (800) 963-7652. Hope this was helpful!

Could this tile be used for the tile portion of a fireplace surround? Also, do you have any other pictures of it being used in a project.

It is difficult to comprehend the scale of the tile from the pictures provided.
Asked by: AtlantaDIY
Good Afternoon, This tile can be used on a fireplace surround! As long as it does not come in contact with direct flame, this tile will not be affected by the indirect heat from the fire (when this tile is made, it is heated at temperatures that are thousands of degrees so the indirect heat from a fireplace is nothing compared to that). Be sure to check the images in the Customer Reviews section at the bottom of the page, as there are a couple images that show the scale of a row of these (the customer cut these into strips). Otherwise, all of the images we have for this product are supplied on the product page. Please email us at photos@merolatile.com inquiring about an image and we will work to email you an image to give you a better perception of the scale of this item. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

can this be used as a counter top? vanity?

can this be used as a counter top? vanity?
Asked by: Mbark1
Good Afternoon, This tile could be used on a counter top. When considering what tile you would like to install as a countertop, you’ll want to look for the tile’s PEI Rating. PEI Rating (short for Porcelain Enamel Institute) measures the tile’s resistance to abrasion from dirt. This is a PEI 3 tile which makes it “suitable for medium-duty residential floors including kitchens, halls, corridors, balconies, terraces and areas used more often with normal footwear and small amounts of dirt”. It is not likely that your countertop will be subjected to worse conditions that this. One thing to keep in mind with this tile is that it has a third fire glaze and is slightly textured, meaning there will be some slight dimension on your countertop. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this was helpful!

Avila Arenal Decor 12-1/2 in. x 12-1/2 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this tile as a border around my bathroom mirror and it turned out great! I recently took a chance and purchased 3 Merola Avila Arenal Decor tiles from the Home Depot website. They looked just like the picture on their website and shipped very quickly via UPS. I cut each tile into 5 pieces that were 2.5" X 12.5". I used these to create a tile border around one of my bathroom mirrors. I call it a tile frame because it frames the mirror. The tiles cut very easily and I had no breakage using a fairly inexpensive tile saw. I used a Locktite mirror adhesive to glue them directly onto the mirror. I left gaps between the tile pieces to match the fake grout lines in the tile and then I grouted the gaps in a matching grout. I looked for weeks for wood frames that I could use to cover the very plain mirrors that had no edging, but this idea was so much prettier and is very practical because I can wipe down the tile easily. It probably worked out to be a cheaper idea too as the wood frames were costly. Thank you Home Depot and Merola Tile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I can't comment on the ease of installation as someone did it for us. However, we are very happy with the results. We put two of these in our kitchen as accents and we couldn't be more pleased.
