Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by customfloor My bathroom floor turned out beautifully!
This tile worked out really well. It looks great and was easy to install. I "popped" out all the black tiles and inserted a beautiful green tile made by the same company that perfectly matched my bathroom wall tiles. Looks like a custom job!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hooksink Love this tile!
I did not do the install, but it's my understanding that hex tile isn't the easiest to install because of all the pieces, even though they come in sections. That said, the sections held together very well, and nothing was broken. I was able to return the extra case that I bought just in case. I love the look of this tile! I wasn't sure if I wanted the matte finish or glossy. I ended up choosing matte because I heard glossy can be slippery when wet. Not sure if that's true, but I don't regret the matte finish -- it looks really nice!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vintage Great vintage look
This is exactly what I was looking for! We just remodeled our bathroom in our home that was built in 1923 and this tile is perfect! Our contractor did say it was a little difficult to work with, but it's the vintage look I was going for! He used unsanded grout.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CrazyCatLady Good Price, watch for pattern errors
I bought this tile for my kitchen. The house was built in 1913 and the kitchen is small, and like everything in an old house, nothing is straight. We decided to go with a mosaic floor because it would be more forgiving of the way the floor slants and the edges don't line up than a large tile. I was a little worried the tile would be too busy but seeing it on the floor with the white cabinets it looks great. A small rug in front of the sink (or shower if it is a bathroom) will break it up enough to keep the pattern from hurting your eyes.
I installed the tile AFTER the cabinet install, mostly to save money on tile. We put the subfloor and backerboard down first, had the cabinets installed with a quarter inch shim, and did tile last. It worked great and saved me probably two or three hundred dollars.
This was our first tile install, so I won't say we were experts at it but there were a few problems not caused by our lack of experience. Basically we had a 9/10 quality control on the tile. I bought nine cases and at least one sheet in each case was off in some way. For some of these it was something in the size- no matter how we adjusted it during the dry lay the piece didn't fit, but using another piece would work fine. These pieces we "rejected" and then used on the edges or under the appliances where we didn't care as much. For other pieces, the actual pattern was wrong. The black tile would be in the wrong place, or missing entirely. The good news is that you can rip the tiles off the netting and reset them, so with some of these we were still able to use the piece. But you have to PAY ATTENTION and honestly, when you are so focused on getting the tiles in the right place, you aren't always looking at the pattern. I highly recommend a full dry lay, and inspect each sheet.
We laid the tile in a staggered pattern rather than a grid, and I highly recommend it. The pattern makes you want to lay a grid, because it is the easiest way to keep the pattern correct. Resist the urge. Slide the next row of tile down four hexagons so the pattern stays but the pieces stagger. Doing this made the tile more forgiving and easier to micro-adjust.
We used a pair of tile nippers to cut our tiles where we needed an edge, and generally they worked fine. A few tiles broke, but nothing more than you would expect. It was wonderful not to have to saw anything.
The biggest complaint that I have about the tile seems silly, but it was the packaging. I understand that the tiles need to be protected during packaging and shipping. But I bought nine cases of this tile - that is 90 sheets of it. Each sheet is individually wrapped so it can be sold by the sheet. We spent almost an hour unwrapping the tile, and the pile of waste we created makes my heart hurt. Luckily it is mostly recyclable, but still. It seems there should be a better way to sell the tile by the case that doesn't involve buying cases packaged to sell by the sheet. It was such a waste - of packaging and of my time to sit there and open each one.
Overall I would recommend the tile. Buy extra (you should always buy extra) to account for the pieces that don't fit. Do a dry lay. For a first timer it was easy - tedious - but easy to lay and cut. It took us about three hours to dry lay and about six or seven to actually do it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jk Amazing 1920s look!
We added a small half bath in our house that was built in 1920. We put the tile in the bathroom and in the front and side entrances. We love how it fits in perfectly with the 1920s feel. We also used the dark grout which makes the tiles pop!!! We love our new floors!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LawnQueen Beautiful tile!
Had the tile professionally installed so I can't really comment on the ease of installation. We used black (Charcoal) grout and it came out beautifully!
