Hello There,
Being as color and matching products are matters of personal preference it is best for you to see products together and decide how you feel they complement each other. The Metro Hex is white and is intended to coordinate with the entire Metro series. Keep in mind that although the products are intended to coordinate, they are not manufactured at the same time and the color could vary

Hello There,
Being as color and matching products are matters of personal preference it is best for you to see products together and decide how you feel they complement each other. The Metro Hex is white and is intended to coordinate with the entire Metro series. Keep in mind that although the products are intended to coordinate, they are not manufactured at the same time and the color could vary slightly. We would recommend the Metro Soho Glossy White http://thd.co/29hQL9T as a subway to coordinate with the hex mosaic. The Metro series also has a coordinating bullnose http://thd.co/27wNQkO that is a great finishing edge for these products. If you have any further questions or want instructions for ordering samples, call our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Thank you for your interest in our products.

Answer: 
Good Afternoon,
At a minimum, you will need 6 cases. We always recommend buying 10% overage to account for cutting and future repairs, so that means you should order 7 cases. Each case covers 8.54 square feet. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Could this tile be used as a kitchen backsplash, specifically over a stove/cooking area?

Answer: 
Hi Kat,
This tile would be great as a backsplash! You do not have to be concerned about the indirect heat from a stovetop. When these tiles are made, they are baked at extremely high temperatures. These tiles are glazed, so water will not absorb into the glaze. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute "restored" vintage bathroom! We updated our bathroom in our 1955 home with this tile. Originally we provided the SKU # to our contractor who ordered the tile and I thought we bought the black & white tile, but lo and behold they have the same SKU # so watch out!! We would've had to wait 2 more weeks to get it switched out, so instead we decided to do a very cute black border using 1/2" black liner tile. It looks so cute and actually turned out more interesting and made our bathroom look bigger than if we'd used black and white throughout! Being in a little old house, these bathrooms are tiny! We used a light beige grout with the tile to prevent it from being TOO white but also not grid-like. We are super happy! The contractor installed them so I'm not sure about installation ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these tiles make the room complete and authentic! Our home was built in 1928 so when we began our bathroom updating process we wanted to maintain the integrity of the age but still, wanted it to feel fresh and updated. These tiles fit the bill exactly! They really give the room the "wow" factor. We couldn't be more pleased with our choice of tiles. We have only just completed our bathroom project so we can't speak to durability but our research claims ceramic tiles are quite durable. Fingers crossed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with appearance and installation This was my fist mosaic tile job and second tile job ever, my first being square white tiles in the shower from Home Depot. I was so pleased to find out it was much easier than I expected. My more sceptical husband was also impressed with the tile! Love the finish, size of tile and color. Glad I went with the pewter colored grout and bullnose tile for base trim as well also found at Home Depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice, easy to install. I have tiled quite a bit in previous homes, but this was my first time installing a mosaic tile. I was a little nervous but it was very easy to install. Because the baseboard is wider and would be covering the edge pieces, I didn't even have to cut ANY pieces. After I grouted (make sure your thin set is applied very thinly, or else it will rise up between the tiles), there are a few places where the sheets are a little farther apart than I'd like because spacers aren't really an option with this tile, but overall it was easy to set and grout. I used the Delorean Grey grout and the design really stands out. It looks great and I am glad I chose it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was looking for After looking at several other home and tile centers I chose this tile from Home Depot because of price and good reviews. I wasn't disappointed. I did find, however, that two of the 7 boxes I ordered had a number of sheets where one end row of the tile was glued to the backing too close to the row next to it. This made it difficult to space the tile on the floor - I ended up pulling off the row of tiles and setting them individually for proper spacing. The tiles cut easily and evenly with a tile saw, but they came unglued from the backing unless dried promptly. No broken tiles from shipping. Color was as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation can be challenging This is beautiful tile but the installation can be challenging. The base must be flat and level. Every imperfection will show in the finished product. The alignment of each sheet should be verified to ensure accurate alignment. If one gets off line, it can easily be compounded and will be difficult to correct. Because the tiles are so small, cutting can be difficult and will require a higher quality wet tile saw. Make certain not to over apply the thin set. If the thinset squeezes up between the joints the problem is magnified because of the sheer number of joints.
