Can you provide me with specific installation instructions please?

This question is from Conchella Penny White 12-1/4 in. x 12-1/4 in. x 3 mm Natural Seashell Mosaic Tile
Asked by

Belmont, NC
October 1, 2013
What kind of thinset should be used with this tile and trowel size? Should I use a wet tile cutter to cut this tile? I was pondering on trying to put this tile up with the simple mat product as the tile is very thin, I was concerned about the thinset seeping through between the tiles, the instructions that came with the tile are vague and generic- for ceramic tile. Are there any specific instructions you can give me? Otherwise, our tile contractor refuses to touch it. I'm so in love with it, but this is the 3rd tile contractor who is having doubts about how to install this backsplash. Please help!

Answer: 
I am an experienced do-it-yourselfer, so I just figured this out by trying it. The tiles cut best by scoring a deep line with a Dremel tool and snapping them. They aren't stiff enough on the backing to use a tile saw. To set the tiles, I made a very flat layer of thin set about ¼" thick -no ridges at all. With light pressure, the mesh backing holds onto the thinset, but you need to check to make sure Read More

The SimpleMat is not our product and thus we have not tested it with our tiles, but we have heard of people using it with success with our mosaics. However, we cannot vouch for its use with any product in particular.
Hope that helps! Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Melanie,
Normally we do not recommend this tile be used on the floor because any dirt would have the potential to scratch the tile's surface. However, for use in a shower, you may make the decision that this is not a risk factor. We still recommend this tile only be used on walls, but the design decision is up to you!
Thanks for your interest in our products.

Good Afternoon,
There are no options that are intended to directly coordinate with the Conchella Penny White, but there are a few options that could complement this product nicely. To complement the Conchella Penny White, you should look at the Dubai Pearl http://thd.co/28JojyP or the Lily White http://thd.co/28JwJno. These products are both very different, so you will need to decide what kind of look

Good Afternoon,
There are no options that are intended to directly coordinate with the Conchella Penny White, but there are a few options that could complement this product nicely. To complement the Conchella Penny White, you should look at the Dubai Pearl http://thd.co/28JojyP or the Lily White http://thd.co/28JwJno. These products are both very different, so you will need to decide what kind of look you are going for. The Dubai Pearl has an iridescent finish similar to the mosaic. The Lily White is a white tile that has a matte finish, making the mosaic the focal point. We offer samples of these products adhered to 4.5” x 5” sample cards so you can see them together prior to making a large purchase. Being as coordinating and matching products is a matter of personal preference, it is best for you to decide what you feel works best for yourself. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow! This tile is amazingly gorgeous. We used it for a focal wall in our bathroom combination tub/shower space. My husband did it himself and it was easy to work with. Yes, it is thin but does not affect the durability. They are shells after all. Easy to install, no more difficult than any other tile. Everyone that see our shower drools over the mother of pearl tile. You cannot go wrong buying this, My favorite tile ever! Pictures do not do it justice. October 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful It came out beautiful! It was a difficult to install (according to the installer) and fragile but so worth it! October 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Updated back splash for very little effort compared to other tiling options This was a good value for what I got out of it. I don't think that I would have used this for any other project other than back splash. I'm really happy with the way this project came out. The tiles were much more light weight than I expected, easy to grab adhesive, and resisted falling after in place while drying. It was a little pricey for such a small space, but any do-it-yourselfer will save money as well as have an easy time with such a light weight product. Sheets were also easy to put together and line up. Because the tiles were so thin too, minimal grout was needed to fill after adhering to the wall. No spacers needed. September 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful! The tiles are absolutely beautiful. I used them as an insert between white crown molding, and white quarter round above a wall of white subway tiles. I had to lay a thick, flat layer of thinset to raise the level of the shell tiles up to the thickness of the regular tiles, but they went in nicely. One word of caution- absolutely white grout does not look as good as a pale grey. The circles are hard to see on white grout, so I'll be tinting the grout to the same grayish white as the thinset. March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, but flimsy It is quite beautiful, but so flimsy. I returned this, as this was purchased to see if it would match the kitchen. However, the tile installer did not want to touch this with a 10 foot pole. He stated he had installed this tile before, and it chipped and I would not like the seems. He said unfortunately, when installed you can see where the tile ended and stopped. Not for me. September 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tile looks great ! We have no complaints , our installer has done a excellent job , with no problems or regrets , all of us think it looks awesome . April 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap... Very cheap and fell apart. Disappointed in the quality. Thin, chips..maybe would work for an art project, not my backsplash. March 12, 2014
