Customer Questions & Answers

Is this like a ceramic tile or vinyl tile? What is the recommended installation procedure?

Asked by: Anonymous
This is a ceramic tile; I have not had it installed yet, however the tile contractor who gave me an estimate said it would be a standard installation and did not foresee any issues.

Would this be OK for a shower floor?

Asked by: Anonymous
This is a basket weave mat, so for a shower floor I'm certain that there will have to be additional underlayment added. I would consult a licensed tile contractor to be safe...

what color grout works best with basketweave tile?

I am thinking of Oyster Grey because I think the darker grout will make the basketweave more pronounced. Am I correct? I also am debating on bordering the basketweave with either cobalt or metal (stainless) looking trim---any suggestions there? The accents on my tile are cobalt. Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
I've had two tile contractors both recommend white grout - they said it would make the cobalt accents pop. I have not had it installed yet, so I can't say for sure they are right. But since they are both licensed and experienced tile guys, I'm probably going to go with their recommendation...

Would this type of flooring be less slippery than large polished tiles in a kitchen?

Asked by: vz123
Hi VZ, The main spec to look at when judging tile slipperiness is called C.O.F., or Coefficient of Friction. This will tell you how slippery the ungrouted product is when wet and dry, or the combined average (on a scale of 0 to 1.0). This product's combined average is between .5 and .6, which is only marginally slip resistant. However, you are right that mosaics can be more slip resistant than large-format tiles, because of the many grout lines between them. Grout is not calculated into C.O.F. and provides additional grit and slip resistance on top of the rating. If you are extra concerned about slip, you could look for tiles with a combined C.O.F. of .7 and above, but for most people, this Basket Weave tile here would do just fine in a kitchen! Hope that helps!

Basket Weave White and Cobalt 9-3/4 in. x 9-3/4 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Floor&Wall Tile(6.7 sq.ft./cs)-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even more beautiful in person We chose these tiles to make a statement in our new guest bathroom because of the cobalt blue tile centered in the intricate basket weave pattern. The professional installer we hired said these were quality tiles and were not difficult to install. He was impressed, and we are thrilled with the appearance. Just what we wanted. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it. By the way, we ordered them online and they arrived the very next day. Couldn't have asked for better service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Tile That's Affordable I just tiled three bathrooms. I used the cobalt blue mosaic in my kids' bathroom and it is by far the best looking out of the three and just happened to be the least expensive. The blue is a cheerier look than the traditional black mosaic tile and would work well in either an adult or child bathroom. Good looks and great value - you can't go wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super, but pricey This tile is very expensive, but also very good quality. Be sure you get enough when you order as it is not 12X12 and you can't get it at the stores. I searched nearly the whole eastern seaboard and had to suck it up and spend the money on shipping due to my own timetable. Looks good and feels great on the feet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my first DIY tile installation... ...and while the tile is absolutely stunning, it was very difficult to install in a bathtub surround. Of course, this could be just my inexperience, but be advised it may slip a little after you install it & don't count on the mesh to keep it straight, and keep checking level as you work. Due to my own idiocy about installation, I spent HOURS scraping mortar out of the joints, and I had a bit of a lopsided installation... however a friend who looked at the job thought it looked great (could be I'm the only one who sees the imperfections!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our vintage bathroom remodel Product arrived promptly and in perfect conition. Very happy with quality of the tile. Will definitely purchase from this manufacturer again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall high marks I used this tile in a hall closet, bath conversion in a 1902 constructed house in b'ham, Al. The tile looks very period and the dog bone shapes lend more dimension to the basket weave effect. This pattern is somewhat hard to locate and the price was very reasonable given its uniqueness. The finished product looks quite authentic and it was good cost effective result. We used a darker grout to avoid stained grout appearance in traffic areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very pretty, but.... Tile is lovely and looks amazing. Shipped quickly and packaged nicely. However - Beware! Mesh backing applied with water soluble glue. Tell your installer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I bought one box of this floor tile along with three other mosaic styles to choose from for my master bath. I decided to go "retro cool" with beveled subway tile for the walls and "rainy sidewalk" Behr paint for the non-tiled areas. This floor tile pulls it all together and really looks great. I haven't installed it yet, but the tile guy I'm considering for the installation says it should be no problem at all. I'm looking forward to seeing this project completed! May add pictures later on...
