Answer: 
The tiles are glazed blue, darker in the center, not printed.
I think there is another blue where they edges are darker.
I used to have a pale green, not sure which manufacturer, and it had a more varied effect. These are consistent in color.
This blue is very shiny and reflects the light, but if you look closely, they have gotten a bit scratched. Not sure if the scratches are from the sanded grout.

Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
The blue color that you see is the reactive glaze, not a screen printing. The color is poured over the tile then fired to seal it. The reactive glaze means that each individual chip will differ slightly in color, giving it a beautifully unique look. However, the porcelain is not through-body, so it will be the color of the white porcelain if the surface is chipped. This is a common

Good Afternoon,
The blue color that you see is the reactive glaze, not a screen printing. The color is poured over the tile then fired to seal it. The reactive glaze means that each individual chip will differ slightly in color, giving it a beautifully unique look. However, the porcelain is not through-body, so it will be the color of the white porcelain if the surface is chipped. This is a common misconception that people have about porcelain, being as it is typically not a through-body tile. We do offer samples of this product adhered to 4.5” x 5” sample cards.

Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
For this tile, you can decide whether you choose to use sanded or unsanded grout. The 1/8” grout joints on this tile are on the border of requiring sanded or unsanded grout, so it is ultimately a matter of personal preference. This tile’s surface should not be affected by using sanded grout. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at

Answer: 
Hi Buddy,
While this tile can be used on a shower floor, it does not classify as a non-slip tile. This tile has a marginal skid resistance, and the grout lines will help provide further slip resistance. We have this same Hudson Penny Round in a Matte White finish http://thd.co/1ogTvZD, or our Metro Penny Matte White http://thd.co/1R1MLdn, which both meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines

Answer: 
Hi Magoo,
Unfortunately, this is unable to be shipped to Canadian addresses and is not sold by Home Depot Canada. You could look into proxy shipping services, which may be a solution for you.
Thanks for your interest in our products!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by penny round tile i recently remodeled my spare bathroom, and used this tile for the floor and shower floor. I think it looks great. I went for a classic look with white subway tile and this penny tile on the floor, and the two went well together. One thing i noticed was that the grout covers up some of the dark brown color around each tile, if i would have caught it sooner, I would have removed more of the excess grout to reveal more of the tile. One concern of mine was this tile being too slippery for the shower floor, but it is not slippery at all. Since the tiles are slightly rounded, they do not lay perfectly smooth, this allows for more grip. Also there is a lot of grout space, so that provides for great grip under my feet. All in all, I am happy with this tile. May 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Experience with penny tile installation is a MUST!!! It is absolutely gorgeous but please confirm your installer has experience installing penny tile; otherwise it will be a mess. The first installer claimed to have over 30 years experience but didn't know how to properly blend the uneven edges of each sheet of tile. End result was having the whole floor re-installed by someone who did have experience with penny tile - huge difference!! I'm glad I stuck to my guns and insisted on it being re-done. It's timeless, elegant and feels so good under our feet. We installed it in the shower floor and bathroom floor. I love the seamless look of it - you can't tell where the individual sheets end or begin. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tile not really as pictured These tiles are pretty, but you will not necessarily get what you see on your computer screen. I ordered this tile twice - once about 6 months ago to see if I would like it. That first batch came with some very nice color variations very similar to what is pictured. This last shipment is totally different tile - there is absolutely no color variation - it is all a muted grey-blue. If you want to use this tile, order ALL you need at once at there is obviously no quality control on re-creating the same color from one dye lot to the other. I would recommend the tile IF the batch you get is what you are looking for as it is pretty. It's unfortunate for us because I really wanted the varied color in the tile. March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with Home Depot I had a professional install the tile, but he seemed to install it without any trouble. The product was delivered in a timely way, came well packed and was of good quality. August 16, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Pretty & elegant tile I love the hue of this vintage yellow, the size & depth of the mosaic on my floor. It gives a bright lift to my bathroom, is pretty & elegant- looking. I have had many positive comments on this new bathroom flooring. June 24, 2016
