Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Kat
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!

Is the white on this tile through body?(color bodied)

Asked by: MWilliams
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 area. We do offer a color bodied version of a 1 inch hex in a bone color called Gotham Hex Antique White Item# 204600989.

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 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.
