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 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 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 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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 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 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 23, 2013
