Can it be used as a bathroom's walls?

I'm planning to update my bathroom and I like the look of these tiles and would like to put them on my walls but not sure if they are suitable for that. Also, can it be used as a shower's wall?

Answer: 
I used them as a kitchen backsplash but definitely would use them for bathroom walls and/or shower wall. They are very shiny, 'clean' looking and would be awesome in a bathroom.

Answer: 
Good morning,
This would be perfect for a bathroom or shower wall, given its size and low water absorption rating.
If using them as a shower wall, be sure to seal your grout lines with a penetrating sealer to ensure longevity.
Hope that helps!

Answer: 
dpalpizar,
You certainly can. If you're using this in a shower area, just be sure that your grout lines are sealed prior to exposing them to water.

Hi LMC,
Yes, this tile has a mesh backing, like almost all of our other mosaic tiles, which makes installing sheets of tile easier and more even.

Answer: 
The tiles are thin enough that they don't require trim pieces, looks just fine without them. We used a wet saw and removed the tiles from the mesh and cut individually. Took time but end result was worth it.

Hi Lauren!
For glass mosaics, many of which do not have matching trims available, Merola has recently released a set of trims called Super Trim, which are PVC or metal and can coordinate with a variety of mosaic tiles. I have attached a few options at the bottom and you can see if you like any of them. They can be cut to size and are easy to work with.

I have attached a few options at the bottom and you can see if you like any of them. They can be cut to size and are easy to work with.
As for cutting the mosaic, if you just need to cut the tile into pieces, you can simply cut the mesh that the tile pieces are attached to, with scissors. If you mean how best to cut the glass tiles themselves, we would recommend using a tile saw with a blade that is made for cutting glass. Another option would be to use a glass tile nipper, or using a glass cutter to score the cut and then snapping it.
Hope that helps! Read Less

Are the white tiles in this a very stark white? I would love to use this as my backsplash but my cabinetry is slightly off-white (linen).

Answer: 
No, if anything a bit translucent? My cabinets are off white and these tiles look great. The black tiles and gray tiles are the most prominent, with the 'white' ones less prominent.

Answer: 
Hi AMC,
I would say the white tiles in this mosaic are a stark or snow white. If you're looking to match your cabinetry, I would suggest ordering one sheet to see if you like the combination, and then decide from that. Home Depot does allow returns of items purchased online, in case you don't like it.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly Unusual One of a Kind Tile Tile was easy to fit on my counter top and has a really dramatic look combined with white bullnose. I don't think you'll ever see another kitchen like this one. May 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product we loved this product, easy to install and looks great. April 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product for the price Fun pattern, easy to install and looks great in my rental. June 12, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by they're ok . First of be aware these are the thinner glass tiles, but still nicer than the real cheep glass tiles with the sticky back. Also the pattern is kinda weird in that some of the mosaics had slightly different patterns. You can see it in the picture if you look closely at the four tile groupings and compare. In some cases that won't matter I was using these for a border of a tub surround so it did. Luckily I bought several extras. Otherwise they got the job done and look very nice. January 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install! What you see is what you get. This was an easy project. My husband and I updated our kitchen in black and white and used the mosaic glass tile as a blacksplash behind the stove and sparingly as a design behind the counter. We used about 7 tile sheets total. It came out beautiful. Cutting of the tile was easy and fast as we interspersed the tile with white tile. The project turned out great. After grouting, just continue to clean until smooth. When I finished grouting, I cleaned with windex for that final clean and Wow! August 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love these tiles!!! These tiles were exactly what I was looking for as a backsplash for my white and black kitchen. Look very clean/shiny against my solid black granite countertop and white cabinets. Had gotten an estimate of $1400+ from a tile store for tiles I didn't like as well, these were $250! October 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exactly what I wanted Happy with the purchase, color is true to online and all was in good condition. March 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by More blue than gray Seemed like a high quality sturdy product, on a mesh grid, none of the tiles came loose, and nothing was chipped or broken. However, while the color looks like grays to me online, it's more of a blue hue in reality. February 4, 2014
