Questions & Answers

Grout/Sealer Clarification

We are using this tile as a bathroom floor. We were considering using Platinum-colored (pale gray) grout instead of white to minimize the grout appearing dirty over time. Wondering if anyone feels a pale gray grout can stain (?) Also, I see conflicting recommendations regarding sealing. Is it really necessary to seal the tile before installation? Should it be sealed before or after grouting? I would love specifics on the order in which the sealing and grouting should be done and if using a white or pale gray grout has advantages as far as staining, etc.
Asked by: Toni214
Color choice is usually in the eye of the beholder, but I have to agree that white is the best way to go. I tried a sample board with a light grey and it turned into a terrible, murky, grey-yuk disaster! Maybe to was just highlighting the grey in the tile, or maybe it was bleeding into is .. Seemed like a good idea, but thank goodness I didn't do it for real. White (like Polyblend Snow White) provides a nice crisp lines. I'd also be curious to see how Bright White (brigther) does. If you have doubts buy a couple of small bags and test before you commit - avoid years of regret! You need to seal BEFORE grouting because it helps keep the grout and haze from penetrating the marble. Its easier to seal before installation because working on a floor is much easier when its on a table :). If you seal after installation and before grouting, you have to be careful to not let it drip down the sides and onto the mortar. This can affect the way grout adheres And of course you need to seal the grout once its there, so you might as well do the tiles again. 2 coats are better than one. (Yes, these are very labor intensive tiles!)

Why did the white tiles turn a dingy gray?

The white tiles turned a dingy gray after installation. I don't believe the installer sealed the tiles before installation. Were those instructions in the box? Could this be the cause? Is there any fix for this?
Asked by: NoraC
Did you use WHITE thinset, or grey? I used white Flexbond and have not noticed any issues. if you used grey then it might have bled up from the bottom ( I don't think sealing the surface would have helped in that case). What color was the grout? I tested a grey grout and it just seemed to make the whole thing murky grey ( not sure if it was perception or bleeding). I ended up going with white grout too.

Would this floor match a marble tile shower and wall decor?

Asked by: mcasses
Thank You for your question. In general the Greecian White Octagon 12 in. x 12 in. Honed Marble Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile is a natural stone. This particular marble is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms. So this tile would match your requirements.

What's the country of origin of these marble tiles? Also, what's the water absorption?

I'm thinking of using these tiles for a bathroom floor but would like more info on the water absorption to make sure they're suitable for a bathroom floor use. Thanks.
Asked by: CGnyc
I am using them in a bathroom and haven't experienced any problems. Make sure you use a sealant after the tile is installed to help with the absorption factor.

Greecian White Octagon 12 in. x 12 in. x 10 mm Honed Marble Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.

Installed it on the shower pan floor and in the niches on the walls. It's beautiful and gives a high end look to my new bathroom. My contractor said it was easy to install, cut and work with. He sealed it before and after grouting. I absolutely love it and would buy it again. I ordered 10 more sheets than I needed because it's marble and marble always has color variations, etc. I would definitely recommend this tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Floor! Takes LOTS of Grout! Floor is simply beautiful. The tile is quite thick and there are a lot of places for grout - so be prepared because it takes a LOT! Worth it though....it's beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proceed with Caution 1) I recommend installing this on the diagonal. Makes a huge difference & the impact to the overage is minimal. 2) make sure the the sub floor is level. 3) have it installed by someone who's used to mosaic tile & experienced in natural tile. 4) I recommend sealing the tile before grouting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome We used 6 sheets of this tile (12 x 12 mesh mounted) above our stove surrounded with greecian white marble pencil and greecian white marble 6 x 6 tiles. It looks amazing and we love it. Grout is bright white unsanded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! We originally planned on buying the marble black and white weave pattern that Home Depot carries, but for one-third less, the octagon design was the practical choice... Our house was built in the 1950s and it is a classic design that will never look outdated. We are very happy with it! Also, we used charcoal grout which never looks dirty! We've received many compliments on this choice of tile.

So I would have given this 5 stars.... it is absolutely gorgeous! ....but just want to mention that if you order on-line, order twice what you need so you can pick out the tiles you like. I bought mine in the store and I went through three boxes in order to get the equivalent of one box of tiles that I liked. There is a lot of variation in each (12 x 12) square - that is, variation amongst the little tiles themselves. But I also found to each of these squares themselves (i.e. some are more (overall) grey - i.e. not just individual tiles, but the 'overall look' of one 12 x 12 square can be more 'grey looking' while others have an 'overall look' that is more white. I wanted 'more white', so I had to go through lot of boxes to get the consistency I wanted. Also, in between, there were some tiles (i.e. 12 x 12 squares) that were on the YELLOW side which I definitely did not want. I would recommend buying these tiles in the store so you can pick out what you like.... but again, if you want to order on-line, I would suggest you order a lot of extra (that is, if you're picky like me(!) and then just return what you don't use. I LOVE the tiles I bought, but it took some work to pick the tiles I liked :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Tile We purchased this tile for our guest bath. It is beautiful! We origianal found it in a tile store for a much higher price, then found it on-line at the Home Depot and ordered it and was very pleasantly surprised how beautifully it turned out.
