Metro Hex 2 in. Matte White 10-1/2 in. x 11 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (8.02 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 77.

Subway tile is overdone -- set your kitchen apart with a hip hexagonal look. The matte white feels more inviting than an overly vibrant glossy white. Depending on the number of obstructions to work around, this mounts fairly easily (the hex pattern is forgiving in aligning). I'm not sure how you cut these tiles without a diamond saw. We bought one of those score-and-snap tools, but didn't use it. Grout and caulk is easy to remove from the tile. The standard edging felt too glossy, so we went all in and bought the matching pencil tile to go with it. We really like the look, and feel it complements the counter-top without distracting.

I used this for my bathroom floor in my 1939 house with charcoal grout. Nice retro but modern look. Feels good under foot. Very happy with this tile and would buy Merola tile again.

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.

It had to combine with some specialty tiles that were made in period-specific colors. They were thicker than these tiles, but I was able to sand the specialty tiles down to match these--it was only about a 1/16th of an inch. The entire project went very smoothly, and I was pleased to be able to find hex tiles with relatively narrow grout margins at my favorite big box store--Home Depot.

We grouted with the Platinum grout and it really set the tile off nicely. Only complaint I would mention is the mesh backing contains a "latex" glue witch is water soluble and keeps the tiles in their pattern. If you don't get it straight and set fairly quickly the tiles release from the mesh making it a bit more difficult to set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful tile, but lots of chipped pieces This is a beautiful tile and looks great installed with a medium-grey grout. Cost was significantly less tha similar products from flooring specialty stores. Only issue/concern was the number of tiles that were damaged/chipped straight out of the pachaging. Boxes were well packaged and showed no sign of damage, but tiles inside were chipped. Of the 5 boxes I purchased, 2 boxes had no damage at all, 2 boxes had 2-4 damaged tiles on each sheet, and 1 box had approximately 6 damaged tiles on each sheet. I fortunately ordered enough extra to cover damage and cuts, but was surprised by how much damage there was (threw away almost 5% due to chips and another 5% due to cuts at edges of room). Ordered what I thought would leave me a half-box extra, and have less than a full sheet after damage. I have some concern about long-term durability of the finish, but haven't had the product long enough to know if it will actually be a problem.

Used a grey grout with a white vanity that has a crystal charcoal granite top and it pops with this tile. Delivery was right on time to my front door in very nice well packaged boxes holding 8 pieces which were easy to carry. Very satisfied!
