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!

Good Morning,
Our Metro Hex Glossy White is a glazed white body ceramic tile. What this means is that while the color of the tile is white if the tile is chipped or scratched the exposed body will not match the glazing of the surface like a color bodied tile. Even with color bodied tiles scratches and chips still have a tendency to be noticeable due to a higher accumulation of dirt in the chipped

Answer: 
Hi Farida,
This tile is usable on shower floors, though because it has a glossy glaze on it, it may be slippery when it gets wet. If you'd like a more slip resistant tile, check out any of our Merola Metro Matte tiles, which come in many of the same designs as the Merola Metro tiles, but with a satin glaze that is less slippery.
I've linked a few options for you at the bottom of this answer.

Is this tile suitable to place under a claw-foot tub?

I am worried that due to it's low grade (1) and it minimal thickness it could crack under the weight of the tub.

Answer: 
Hi Carol,
I see that your question has already been addressed but I wanted to specifically mention that the grade you mention in your question (Grade 1) does not refer to the durability of the tile, but rather the quality. And actually, Grade 1 is the top quality, as compared to Grade 2 and 3, often referred to as 'seconds' or 'second quality'.
Hope that helps for the future!

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So happy with it! This was my first tile job by myself! I was nervous, especially hearing how difficult this tile was for some people to install. I first tiled the shower with square tiles from Home Depot, and then did the floor with these hex tiles. They went in so smoothly! I was pleased with the pewter colored grout are used as well. Cleans up well, and adds the look I wanted in my bathroom! Also was glad to find bullnose tiles at Home Depot too for trim that I think go well with the floor. July 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I was looking for Color and glazing was uniform throughout the ten boxes I ordered and not a single tile arrived broken. The tile spacing was also uniform, with only a few tiles being exceptions to the later, but the installer was able to adjust those without too much issue. The tile was installed only a week ago, so it's too soon to say what durability will be. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful and inexpensive tile! Absolutely pleased with this tile! It looks amazing and actually goes well with our outdated pink tile! April 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! August 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time installing floor tile and it turned out great Tiles arrived within a few business days and I set to work with an experienced buddy providing guidance. Once the floor was properly prepped the tile laying & grouting went very smoothly. The tile itself seems to be of excellent quality and we've received several compliments. January 8, 2013
