Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Good morning,
This is a porcelain mosaic tile that comes on mesh sheets. You would install the tile using a latex-modified thinset, lay the sheets using spacers, and then grout. Check out Home Depot's DIY guides for more information.
Hope that helps!

Answer: 
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...

Answer: 
Hi Sue,
This tile is approved for use on a shower floor. It is made of porcelain with a very low water absorption rate. Just be aware that the slip resistance is not as high as matte-finished tile, so it may be slipperier when wet. I have linked a few similar matte options below in case one of them works for you instead.
Hope that helps!

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.

Answer: 
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...

Answer: 
Hi Julieanne,
You are correct that a darker grout would make the pattern stand out more. I would suggest buying the tile you need, and then taking a sheet to your local Home Depot to compare grout color samples to it. The tile you use for accent is totally up to you, but I think a cobalt trim would look lovely and would bring out the cobalt in this mosaic tile.
Hope that helps!

Answer: 
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 Read More
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! Read Less

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reminds Me of Grandma's House I'm very happy with my decision to use the basket-weave tile. one bathroom got the white with black while the other bathroom got white with blue. In my mind, this tile has a modern, yet traditional style to it. This tile was as easy to install as any other "sheeted" tile even at my mostly amateur level. Good looks at a good value. November 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful tile and the blue adds a nice subtle accent This beautiful tile has a period look that matches our 1930s home perfectly. The small tiles require you to take time to lay it accurately, but that planning and extra care paid off for us. We used the extras for the back of the inlaid shelves we built into the wall. January 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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!) September 25, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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... March 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 27, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This product should not be sold at Home Depot The mesh was put on the tile with some kind of water base product. When you wet the tile to cut, the pieces start detaching from the mesh. Once you put them on the motar you cannot pick them back up to make adjustments because you will be lifting one piece of the basket weave at a time. I am so sorry I bought this tile. Where are the USA products? June 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 6, 2011
