We have purchased this tile to go in our bathroom. I've noticed it is slightly off white. Is there a particular subway tile that you carry that matches?

Thanks!

Metro Octagon Matte White and Black 11-1/2 in. x 11-1/2 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (9.2 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent First box I ordered was perfect so ordered enough for project. The rest of the order came with new packaging. The spacing between mosaic pieces in this lot was inconsistent. Probably okay if using matching grout, but wouldn't use a contrasting color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metro Octagon Matte White with White Dot - FABULOUS! We just had this installed in a 4x5 half-bath makeover. We had our contractor put it on the floor, using a very white grout, and it looks FABULOUS! We used the DalTile 4.25" x 6" bullnose cove base (matte finish, Arctic White) around the base of the walls and that looks great with it. We went with a white-on-white theme, and this tile adds visual interest and texture with its beautiful design. Contractor said it was easy to install. By the way, on the box, the PEI Rating is a 4, not a 3. Very happy with this tile!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with bathroom tiles We are very happy with these these tiles for our bathroom floor. I like that the white is very slightly off-white, and I love the contrast of the glossy black with the matte white. Installing mats of small tiles is a lot more work than installing solid 8x8 or 16x16 tiles, especially for cutting the edges to match a less than perfectly rectangular room. The glue of the mats would dissolve if exposed too long to the water of the tile saw. So I penciled the shape on the tiles and often had to cut each small tile individually. Having small tiles was an advantage however, when cutting tile to go fully around radiator pipes, the result is more seamless than would be with larger solid tiles. This project required a lot of patience, but the end result is lovely -- a classic look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tile and like the durability, but the white is an off white. Nice tile and like the durability, but the white is an off white. Just make sure if you are using a subway tile to coordinate that you purchase this floor tile before you purchase the wall tiles because you will have to coordinate the off whites. Pretty once laid and all of the colors are worked out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, but beware flaws! The tiles look good and were easy to install -- some of the tiles could have been spaced a little more evenly, but overall the sheets were pretty uniform and the glue dots were easy enough to tear off of the tiles when adjustments were needed. HOWEVER, my biggest complaint is that some of the glue dots had oozed up pretty high on the sides of the tiles when the sheets were assembled in-factory -- high enough that they poke through the top of my grout in about 10-12 places in my 26 sqft floor... dark dots in light gray grout is not a good look. I'm kicking myself that I didn't notice until giving the grout a final clean at the end of install. I'd recommend that future buyers/installers of this tile do a thorough job inspecting each sheet before it's laid to catch the wonkiest of the dots. As for color: these tiles are not bright white, but I wouldn't call them off-white or antique white, either. Just...white. And they do seem very durable -- I dropped a few after making cuts and they didn't chip or break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked great for my little bathroom I was very pleased with my tile. It came quickly to my house and shipping was very reasonable. No broken or chipped tiles. Easy enough to install and haven't had any problems to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Depot had it! This octagonal tile aligns with the feel and look of my older home ( circa 1910). I was contemplating a wood floor, but if your floor pitches or sags a bit, this tile is perfect for a solid foundation. I also wanted a green diamond flooring and really no other company readily had the style but Merola. And after much searching, i went to the obvious source, HD, that had the product and assured it would arrive in time for the scheduled contractor to install it. I would suggest using this tile pattern on a more limited floor space, since the tight geometric design can present a busy optical pattern. But for my old farmhouse bathroom, it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love this tile in my renovated bathroom... This product was amazing to work with in our home that we are restoring from the 1800s. We had to work around an old cast iron tub that we were not moving and this tile worked well.
