Customer Questions & Answers

Is this product actually 3mm thick? It looks questionable online...

Asked by: Chelsea
Very thin. But maybe only 2 mm thick. Perhaps they are taking into account the mesh backing?

How can I cut the tile along its long angle, in half? I have cut it in half successfully on its short angle.

Asked by: ET
Use and angle grinder with a diamond blade. It works perfectly. I taped it down on a board to cut when I was working with a tiny piece.

Would this be an easy backsplash to clean with a sponge? Does it stain easily? Any other thoughts? Thanks

Asked by: Counselor4444
All I con contribute is that it cleaned very easily when I grouted it. It is quite smooth and hard, so I would guess that it would clean easily. I do not believe that this very hard shell would stain at all.

Simple mat vs adhesive thinset

Do you think it's better to use simple mat for installation vs adhesive thinset since it's so thin ?
Asked by: Naz
I used the simple mat and had no issues. Since the individual tiles are so small, I sometimes had to trim the simple mat on the top and bottom of the individual sheet so that each tile made contact.. I used a Dremmel tool with the 7/8" diamond cutting wheel to cut the tiles and it went very well.

I used this as a backsplash in my kitchen, and it looks amazing! It is shiny, feminine, and the tiny subway tiles make my kitchen wall look so much bigger. It you are interested in a natural shell in this color, don't think, just buy!

Had it installed as trim in a shower and vanity in one bathroom a couple of years ago - we have loved it - especially due to our love of shelling. So now we bought 20 sq ft more ($400+) of the same model number (GDXCSWW) for our master bath trim and backsplash project; however our first time it had 20 rows of tile across, but this shipment (in 2017) only had 18 rows across, making the tile gap space much larger, giving a much different look in a bad way. Just hoping the manufacturer will find us some more 20-row material.

I found that using a Dremmel tool with the 7/8" diamond cutting wheel was the quickest and best way to cut the individual tiles. The finished installation met all my spouse's wishes. It looks great! I used the adhesive mat to mount the tiles and used the alabaster grout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this look We installed this in our kitchen and have since received compliments all around. We absolutely love it. Given that these are cut from real, natural shells, there are variations in the coloring, shading and iridescence, hence the space catches light beautifully. We used tile snippers to cut pieces that needed trimming, and that was sometimes a bit tricky (and time consuming) as these are small and you need to trim each one individually and they tend to shoot when snipped (my husband wore safety glasses as a precaution). So, “if I had my druthers” as they say, would opt for renting a tile saw to speed up the process and make for cleaner cuts. Keep your adhesive thin or it will bleed through. (As mentioned by previous reviewer, these tiles are rather thin, so you don’t have a lot of leeway for excess and it will ooze through the spaces between.) Was a little higher than average price-wise – but worth it. Who wants “average”? We used a medium-gray, SANDLESS (recommended) grout to maintain the depth of the tiles (white grout would have evened out the coloring too much and would cause it to lose a lot of the depth and dimension). Uber glad we went with that color choice – makes all the difference. A beautiful update to the look of our (otherwise, pretty old) kitchen.
