Metro Hex 2 in. Glossy Black 10-1/2 in. x 11 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (8.02 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My wife and I are remodeling a small bathroom to a mid 20th century style (specifically 1940's). ... My wife and I are remodeling a small bathroom to a mid 20th century style (specifically 1940's). This Metro Hex tile fits the time period perfectly with an updated modern color. It has a very nice matted finish that's not to glossy but not to muted as well. These tiles are very good quality for the price. I used about seven boxes to finish my floors and out of the seven boxes, I only found three individual tiles that had a chip or defect in them. I just used those mats for my corner or edge pieces where I new I could leave those tiles out. Installation was a learning process. I found it hard to get the gaping between each of the full mats perfect. When I would lay a full 5x6 tile mat on the the thin-set, the spacing between the tiles had a tendency to move towards the center of the mat. To compensate for this, I ended up cutting each mat into two 2x6 tile sheets and one 1x6 tile sheet so that I could better control the spacing between each sheet. It took a lot longer, but the results were amazing. We grouted with the SimpleGrout #165 Delorean Gray 1 Gal. Pre-Mixed Grout. I would recommend using a sanded grout and not a premix grout unless you're a professional. There are a lot of grout lines that you need to get with this tile and you want something that will not dry on you that fast. Overall the this product more than meet my wife and I's expectations. The installation is challenging, but the results are well worth the effort if you're willing to put in the extra time to make sure that it comes out correct.

I was looking for a unique, simple, modern white backsplash for my kitchen update and didn't want the standard subway tile. I'm so happy with the way the 2" hexagon turned out and I love the high gloss. Although it's not a true white, it has a bit of a gray cast during different times of the day depending on the light. It was even more noticeable once the pure white grout was added but it still looks great with the new arctic white quartz countertops.

The contractors found it somewhat time-consuming to install. Unfortunately Merola doesn't make matching baseboard tile, but they make some that's close enough to look good with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tiles This is a well made tile that was fairly easy to install. The color goes through the full tile, so even if it was to chip at some time in the future, it would not be very noticeable, unlike many of the cheaper tiles on the market. We ordered the matte finish, and with some light grey sanded grout the finished floor is very beautiful and not at all slippery, even with wet feet. Each sheet of tile was individually packaged with a cardboard backing and plastic wrap, and the full box of individually wrapped tiles was well padded with bubble wrap when shipped. I don't think I could have broken a tile if I had tried!
