Customer Questions & Answers

What color grout is recommended

This is a big debate in my household.
Asked by: Pops
I used a pale gray, which turned out very nicely. I was a little worried about white showing dirt too quickly on the kitchen backsplash.

What do you recommend to result in a good appearance without lipping due to the this tile being used as an accent and thinner than surrounding tile?

This tile is 6mm and will be installed by separating halves of each sheet for a single strip accent. The surrounding tile will be 8mm thick. I'm aware of various methods that can be found via search engines and other websites, but curious if a substantive response or better suggestion will be provided here.
Asked by: matt
I used part of this tile as an accent strip as well. What I did was set the accent strip on Schluter Kerdi-band (using thinset - you can easily cut the Kerdi to the width you want before setting the tile on it). Then I installed that to the wall. It added just a bit of thickness, and as I was using this for the bottom of a kitchen backsplash, it also gave me some waterproofing right above the counter, rather than bare drywall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & Durable We purchased these tiles in two orders and cut them apart into strips of design to create a border around a Portuguese tile mural over our stove. The color is vivid and consistent from sheet to sheet, and our tile guy, who is very knowledgeable and extremely particular, is happy with the high quality of the tile material, color and design. Before buying all we needed, I did a little test run by taping a single sheet of tiles to the wall and splashing it with hot grease, tomato sauce and hot blueberry sauce, then letting them dry - cleaned up beautifully. The bonus is that three sheets of these tiles were enough to do a double border of patterned and plain blue tiles around the mural, which saved us a couple hundred dollars in custom tiles and gave us the EXACT same look! We're very, very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back splash! This tile is gorgeous wherever you put it. I used it as a lower border for a back splash in my kitchen by cutting the sheets in half, then used snow white 4x4 ceramic tiles above it. I've had it up for almost 3 years now and I still get compliments on it! Now I'm planning a similar project with this tile for my bathroom. It's just too pretty not to use. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants a polished, classy look and feel in their home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great appearance, just have patience We used this for a backsplash in our kitchen and we are very pleased as to the results. The tile is very nice and it is easy to install. The details are nice, however you do have to have a little bit of patience when you are grouting due to the details. It was what we expected when we ordered it and the finished product exceeded our expectations. A few of the tiles were chipped due to the shipping, but nothing major and in no way hindered the overall satisfaction. We would definitely order this type of product again, for the money we spent on it, came back to his many times over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Tiles! The tiles are just wonderful, and they look amazing in my shower! The images online are slightly darker than the actual color...which was a welcomed surprise as I was nervous about such a deep blue on the walls. I'm very very pleased with the product and wish they came in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pool facelift Chipped off all of the old tile, ground down all of the old adhesive and grout with a 4.5" angle grinder with a diamond cup wheel, re-tiled and then re-grouted. This Merola tile is gourgeous. Cutting a single sheet in half with a utility knife made it the perfect size for the pool's tile border. This tile really transformed our inground pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accent tile The tile was everything previous reviewers commented on. I am renovating a 1925 Spanish type home and wanted to keep the guest bath in period style. Using this tile as an accent border inside the shower stall was perfect. My architect saw it and then sugested it would be great to use on the fireplace and mantle. That will be a future project. I am very happy with this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scratches easily, not a tough porcelain It looks good but scratches too easily. More like ceramic than porcelain. Price was reasonable though.
