There is really no trim tile that matches this? If I dont want to do contrast trim, what are my options?

Asked by: Anonymous
Shopping big tile stores in your area to find another product that ,at he's. It becomes a matter of taste, and how long you're willing to look to find the perfect match. We never did and went with contrast trim in bronze rope pattern. Looks really beautiful.

Does anyone who has used this lantern tile have any pics of room they used it in?

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...
Asked by: jennymc
I would not use these tiles for flooring. They're very thin.

Is this tile a stark white or a soft ivory/white?

Asked by: Anonymous
The glossy is bright shiny white. The matte is also bright white, but not reflective, so it appears softer.

Lantern 12-1/2 in. x 12-1/2 in. x 5 mm White Porcelain Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile (11 sq. ft. /case)-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this tile i love this tile and i see that alot of people had a hard time finding trim pieces to match. i found that the Bright Snow White collection at Home Depot matches it great. I'm getting the rope trim and the BSW 2x4 tile to match it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful tile! I have been trying to get this tile for months. It's exactly what I imagined it to be based on previous customer reviews. Yes, it is stunning, but yes, it is thin. It is perfect wall tile. As a designer, I would never recommend this as a floor tile. That being said I am very happy with my purchase save this: Every time I came to look for the tile at this site, it was listed as 'Currently Unavailable'. Note to HD online shoppers, the invoice data between the web inventory and the warehouse inventory are completely separate. This makes no sense to me! Luckily, I always follow up and called the helpful tele-staff to inquire about the next shipping dates from the manufacturer. Not only did they give that info to me, one gentleman explained to me about the differences in inventory. At HD they set aside some for web, some for store, and an even smaller batch for call-in orders only. None of these are listed in a main database. It is treated like 3 individual companies. This info helped me get my order placed before the website had even been updated! I just kept calling back, knowing that the call-in inventory would be updated before the web. If you are trying to get your hands on a specific item, or MORE of a specific item- do your legwork and call, email, and call again! It is frustrating but WORTH it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bang for your buck! I bought this for my kitchen backsplash and LOVE it! I saw a similar backsplash in a magazine for a $100k kitchen remodel, fell in love with it, and was elated to find this at such a good price. I was worried there would be no shine to it, but it does have a good glossy finish (similar to that of a subway tile).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
