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!

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 66 reviewers.
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 Great Tile My first tile project. The end result turned out very well. January 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attractive floor, pretty deep blue color Pretty tile and matched well with Daltile cobalt pencil trim June 27, 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful! This is beautiful tile with an artisan feel. Love how it looks in the bathroom! June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just What We Were Looking For! We recently completed a tile project of our front entry steps using these blue penny tiles. We live in Juneau, Alaska so tile used for outdoor projects needs to be durable! We found the penny tiles extremely easy to use and very colorful. Placement and grouting were easy, and the color really pops against a gray background. We have had numerous compliments on the project already August 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes a great Backsplash! We are really pleased with these tiles, they complete our kitchen giving it the clean- cut modern style which we wanted to achieve. We had a handyman install them. These tiles represent great value. We chose the marine color but the color we got is various shades of blue with no hint of green as shown in the product photo, however this color worked for us. We would definitely recommend the tiles for any kitchen for quality, appearance and value. July 14, 2015
