Answer: 
I used it as a kitchen backsplash but I think it would be great for a shower surround! There's also the smaller size lantern option. I chose the larger size mainly because of the color. The smaller lanterns are very white, these are more of an off white color.

Answer: 
Hi Tracey,
This product would be perfect for shower wall usage. It's porcelain, which means it's durable and doesn't absorb water. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for shower floor usage, as it may get a bit slippery, but that's up to you.
If you happen to want something with higher slip resistance, I've linked our same tile in a matte finish below.
Hope that helps!

Answer: 
Tracey,
It certainly would! Just be sure that before you use the shower, that your grout is properly sealed. Allow at least 72 hours for your grout to cure before applying the sealer, which takes about 2-3 hours to set in.

Answer: 
I bought the white, so I was able to just pick up pieces of trim from the tile section of the store. We just used a basic trim that would normally be used for a bathroom and it worked for us. But we only had one edge that needed it so we only had to purchase three little pieces of trim.

We are wanting to use this in a bathroom with a black vanity on top and wondering how it would look??
Also, someone above commented that it would be unlikely that you would have something weighing 250 lbs on your bathroom floor and therefore, this would be a great flooring option. Does this have a weight limit of 250? We would have people using the bathroom that would definitely be that size if not bigger...

Answer: 
We just installed this tile as a kitchen backsplash, but we have 1970s "lantern" tile (obviously, not from HD) that's been on two bathroom floors for 40+ years w/o problems. It should be fine as a bathroom floor. I wouldn't use in a shower floor, though, due to the concern about slipping on a wet floor.

Hi Jenny,
Firstly, a contrasting vanity in black with this tile would probably look great! If you look under product reviews, there are lots of great customer photos showing this tile installed.

Hi Jenny,
Firstly, a contrasting vanity in black with this tile would probably look great! If you look under product reviews, there are lots of great customer photos showing this tile installed.
Secondly, break strength is a bit of a misleading technical spec. It doesn't mean that any weight on top of an installed tile is its total weight limit.
The break strength test for tile is conducted with weights on a piece of unsupported tile- one piece by itself, with no backing or flooring underneath it. Once you install the tile on a floor, you would factor in the substrate material's strength (i.e. cement board over concrete), plus the tile itself. So no need to worry about that 250 lb. specification- this tile is very durable and that test is not conducted in the same atmosphere as an installed tile. Claw-foot tubs, refrigerators, and washer/dryers are just some of the items that people have successfully installed in rooms with this as the floor tile.
We know material specs can be a bit confusing and that you want accurate information to help you make the best decision for your project. We hope this was helpful! Read Less

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty tile at a better price than tile stores Loved the arabesque tile in the tile stores but couldn't afford it. This tile is very similar at half the price. I tilted the tile on its side. Because I used platinum grout, it made the tiles go to a soft gray - looked almost hand painted. I love, love, love this color! I ordered a gray bullnose because like most users, I couldn't find a white to match this tile. It did have a quality issue (out of the 7 boxes, 17 sheets were filled with poor tile) - plan accordingly with your estimates. It isn't hard to install but because it has many cuts, it took significantly more time. This is one of my favorite bathrooms in the house - love it! September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elegant yet Simple I liked this tile for it's shape and color. I wanted a backsplash that didn't compete with my swirly granite but made a statement too. Picking white (my wall cabinets are white also) helped with the noncompeting and picking this elegant shape helped to still give the backsplash character and interest. I love it! My husband nor I installed it but we had a professional do it. He did say it was a little more complicated than he thought it would be because of the shape but he did an excellent job (just think it was more time consuming than he thought). It came packaged VERY safely and none of them were broke. October 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with the result! This tile is a bit hard to install, because of the lack of a straight edge for aligning cuts and because of the need to carefully check alignment of each tile as you place the sheets. (The tiles are mounted on mesh, but they can twist/shift a bit during installation, so it's important to re-align them as you go.) It cut smoothly and did not chip, especially if the tile was cut with the finished surface facing down. We used marble ogee liners for trim, since there was no matching trim available. Very happy with the overall result. November 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beautiful accent with white subway tiles We used this as an accent tile inset in shower niches. The rest of the shower is white subway tile and we used with a light grey grout. The result is beautiful, it adds a unique detail to an otherwise neutral/white shower. The tile quality is great and it was relatively easy to install (except where we had to cut very specific pieces for corners, but that's to be expected). I would definitely recommend. April 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely STUNNING!!!! So happy I purchased these tiles for my backsplash! I was updating my 1970s kitchen by painting the cabinets, replacing the countertop, mimicking a farmhouse sink, and then installing a backsplash. These tiles were a perfect way to add some luxury and I get endless compliments on them. We used white grout and ogee wood trim from HD's lumber department instead of tile trim. Just painted it with white cabinet paint and it looks amazing. Highly recommend! December 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful product, installation is not as difficult as they say!! These tiles are just beautiful. I bought two cases for the back splash in my kitchen, about 15 sq. ft., and had a few sheets left over at the end. It still cost less than some of the alternatives that ran $10/sq.ft., and yet gave me more than I needed. Some reviews say this is really difficult to install - it's not true! You can do it yourself! We rented a wet tile saw from the Home Depot and my husband, who had never used one before, had no problem cutting the tiles. We adhered the full sheets and full individual tiles first, then separated individual pieces from the mesh and cut them to put around the edges. The result is beautiful. We haven't done the grout yet, but I think I will go with white or cream so as not to emphasize any slight variations in spacing. Be careful when applying to adjust the tiles after pressing them in to maintain even spacing. July 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy! I love this tile. it was defiantly a little more time consuming to install rather than a normal square or rectangle tile but well worth it. i almost went with subway tile but them found this online and was sold it is a great value and gives your home a splash of simple elegance! only other con would be that there are no really good edge pieces to use for this tile but we were able to use the rope tile from home depot March 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Different! I saw similar tiles in a very high end store, but knew I couldn't afford them. Did a little poking around online and found these through Home Depot. Although not the same as the high end, beveled tiles, these are beautiful just the same and give me the same look for much less. Friends and family have said the tiles remind them of a 1920s French cottage. My handyman is thrilled because although awkward to cut, they're easy to cut through due to the thinness of the tile. I can't wait until it's finished! I would NOT recommend these for a floor. They're way too thin and may crack if something is dropped. January 22, 2013
