Good Morning Deb!
Our Metro series does have a coordinating bullnose! The bullnose can be seen here, http://thd.co/1QH57k1. This specific bullnose has a matte finish which will work well with your choice of the Metro Hex 2 in. Matte White mosaic. Though these products are meant to coordinate with each other, they may not match exactly due to different manufacturing dates. It is recommended to order samples of these products to help in your ordering process. We do create samples for the Metro Hex mosaic, however, the bullnose does not come as a sample and would need to be purchased through HomeDepot.com. The Home Depot has a 90-day return policy which can be returned in store if you choose. If you have any further questions or need help with ordering a sample, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

What's the difference between this and the other Metro white 2" hex tile?

Is there a difference (other than price) for this time versus the one in the link below?

Link is here:
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Merola-Tile-Metro-Hex-2-in-Matte-White-10-1-2-in-x-11-in-x-5-mm-Porcelain-Mosaic-Floor-and-Wall-Tile-FXLM2HMW/205192730

In case that didn't work - here's the tile data:
Model # FXLM2HMW

Internet # 205192730

Store SKU # 1000052307

Price for the above tile is $5.58 vs. $6.95 for this time. Both are Merlo, "metro", 2" hex and have a matte white option. Both are glazed. Other than limited availability for the $5.58 tile, I'm not seeing a difference. Can anyone illuminate me?

Answer: 
Hi Nate,
The difference between the two SKUs is that one is for the product sold as an individual sheet, whereas the other is sold by the case. Both products cost the same per square foot. For the product sold as an individual sheet, it is not able to be shipped directly to your home so you must pick it up in store. For large orders, we would recommend buying by the case, http://thd.co/1qBG2wS seeing as

Good Afternoon,
This tile is great for a shower floor! The matte finish is a suitable option to use when it comes to slip resistance. This tile meets ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance, even when it is wet. The glazed finish will not absorb water, making it suitable for the wet environment. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tile, very hard install I had 8 boxes without a single problem tile. As with all mesh backed mosaics, spacing not perfect. This was my first tile project ever, and it was HARD. I don't have particularly good skill with spatial relations, though, and also got a lot of thinset smooshing up. Love the 2" look July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking tile This tile is beautiful and comes in sheets to make installation easier. Installation, however, isn't easy considering you have to cut each inner tile to fit against the wall and cabinets (vs. a 12x12 tile with one cut.) April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great time for shower floor Looks great. Would put in another shower for sure. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great!! I used this tile in my kitchen for two back splashes and one large focal point wall. It looks exactly how I hoped it would. Working with the mosaic style tile is slightly more advanced than working with your standard shapes. A bit of thought is required before installing. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tile It looks excellent on my bathroom floor! So pleased May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Good product, good price. And fast shipping! I would definitely do this again. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great classic looking tile The tiles look great. Definitely a little harder to cut and install just due to the size/shape of the tiles vs. a solid tile. It gave the look we wanted. You can tell that the bath has been renovated but it still has a very classic style. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tile at affordable price Couldn't love this tile anymore. It was so easy to have it installed & looks great! Definitely fits in our 1927 home. Took our half bath from boring to beautiful. March 29, 2016
