Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bkjuanni Love it!!!
I really like the look of this tile. I was a little disappointed that the colors in the online pic had more white/vibrant colors than the actual tile did, but it is still a great looking tile. I also used a bone grout as the other reviewer mentioned, just so happened to have it on hand from a previous tile project. Unfortunately my posted pic doesn't do the tile justice, as you can't see the shine in the glass tiles. I am very happy with the finished look!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DiscoOwl Gorgeous tile - just what we were looking for
We must have made 100 trips to stores and websites looking for the perfect tile for our kitchen. I finally found it here at Home Depot's website. Since it was website only, i ordered a sample sheet and loved it. Tundra is a gorgeous tile mix of glass and natural stone. We have blue as our accent color throughout our Great Room so i wanted a tile that had blue tones in it, but also earthy tones and neutrals as well. This tile fit the bill perfectly. My boyfriend and I tiled the kitchen ourselves, and this was a first for both of us. Now that we have finished, I can offer lots of advice to other first timers out there. After several unsuccessful attempts with cutting tools, we finally settled on the QEP Master Cut $49 wet saw from Home Depot that i *highly* recommend for this particular tile. We were on a tight budget and didn't want to spend a lot of money. This wet saw worked excellent on both the glass AND the natural stone pieces in this mosaic tile. Don't even bother getting nippers or anything else -- we tried it all on these tiles, and the wet saw was the only success we had. (A tip when using the wet saw: lay the tile face-down with the backing facing up as you run it through the saw --- seem to get a cleaner cut that way.) The grout we chose was "bone", also from Home Depot. Love it...everything came out really beautifully and i couldn't be happier. I highly recommend this tile and hope my uploaded photos help, as i know the website manufacturer photos can be a little misleading sometimes. As for quality, the tile seems really great...We ordered about 20 sheets of this stuff, and out of the 20 sheets I only came across 1 or 2 individual stones that had been chipped. You simply peel them off the backing and replace them with another, so it's no big deal. The tiles were delivered well packaged and I have no complaints.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kels Gorgeous tile made easy to install
I picked the tile and my husband did all of the install. From what I observed, it seemed pretty straight forward to put in. We liked this small square shape of tiles because we could do our whole kitchen backsplash without a tile cutter. They are small enough we could just center them on our wall space. The mixture of stone and glass is really striking. I would recommend! I was also pleased that I could buy easily online, but then when we had 4 sheets left over, returning in our local store was super easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DFTW Tessera Square Tundra Wall Tile
I was disappointed that this wasn't carried in stores, so I ordered one as a sample. It arrived loose in a box and broken in several places. I was reluctant to order it for my new shower, but I liked it so much that I decided to give it a try. It arrived in perfect condition, and I'm really happy with it. It's even more beautiful than the picture can show, with so much contrast between the glass and stone.
