Does anyone have any suggestion for a transition piece piece from the bathroom to a hallway floor? This would be for Metro Charcoal.

I have the Metro charcoal tile and it is stained from the grout sealer, is this normal? What can I do to fix this?

What does the manufacturer recommend I do to fix this?
Asked by: Wayne007
My installer used TileLab's Tile and Grout sealer on this and stained it. It was all smeared. He tried using the sealer as a solvent, Tile Lab's Sealer remover, alcohol, a Miracle Micro Scubbing compound, and baking soda in water and none if worked at all. We thought the tile was permanently ruined. I looked up the chemistry and it was a potassium silicate. A chemical supplier suggested 5% white vinegar and it worked. Saturate the tile with vinegar and wait 2-3 minutes. It will begin to break down the silicate. Scrub it hard with scotchbrite. Soak up the vineger with towels. You may have to repeat it on tough spots. Rinse the tiles 2x with clean water to remove the vinegar. Pay special attention to getting the vinegar out of the grout as it can break it down. Then get a grout sealer application bottle and apply new sealer to only the grout. This is a glazed porcelain tile, the surface doesn't need sealing.

How does the color and size of this tile compare to the Metro Charcoal version? They look very similar.

Asked by: Rachel
Charcoal is definitely has more brown tones. Wish they didn't call it charcoal, since I can't remember the last time I saw brown charcoal. Go with the black if you want "charcoal".

We used this tile for our bathroom/ laundry room renovation and could not be happier with our choice. In my opinion, the color and details in the tile make this product stand out, allowing it to blend easily with our choice of tile in the shower as well as with our vanity. I love this tile!

I wanted to like them so much, I purchased 200 sqft of the same tiles twice, from different stores, thinking the first purchase was a bad batch. After inspecting the second purchase, I just could not go through with the installation. The tiles are warped and not squared (non-rectified). You may get lucky and have a painless install but you may also be amongst those that "has to live with it." This thing is also a fingerprint magnet, I expect it to show footprints just as much. There are too many red flags here, you get what you pay for. 5 stars for home depot's return policy.

Make sure you 'burn' the tile before laying them, to help prevent lifting. Easy to install, easy to clean. I also recommend using levellers (not sure of the brand name, but you can buy them in Home Depot. This helps your tiles remain level and evenly spaced.) We used Delorean Gray grout. **Burn tile: spread mortar on the floor as you would with any tile, but make sure that you spread mortar on the back of the tile then scrape off excess. Leaving mortar in the crevasses of the tile. Then lay the tile)

While I like the contemporary look & light neutral color of this tile in Metro Gris (light gray with tan), the quality of the tiles were not consistent, handful of the tiles had a rough finish, like coarse salt sprinkled on parts of the tile, & 2 tiles had a small strip (about 8 mm width) of missing pattern at its edge (just a plain white strip), not too big of a deal if it was caught before installing, but my contractor was careless (or didn't care) & installed it. good thing the blemished tiles are not too noticeable. So if you decide to use this tile or other tiles by this brand, be sure to inspect every tile carefully prior to install.

HOWEVER, in the kitchen, it shows every single water droplet/stain. Looks the worst around the dishwasher when water comes off dishes as you unload. So, if you are up to swiffering everyday (or you're cool with water stains), you will love this tile. Unfortunately, I won't pick it again, as much as I would love to for our next house.

We went up two courses of tile and did a 4 inch belt of glass like multi-piece tile we had cut into thirds. Fortunately we had decided to go to the ceiling with the tile and the bull-nose that accompanies this tile has the striated lines that matched the vertical installation. Had we not gone to the ceiling the striations on the bull-nose edging would have been perpendicular to that on the tile and would have looked a little off. The secret to a good tile job is the installer. The installer had 30 years experience and was very good at what he did.

I work for a property redeveloper and we use this tile in just about every house we do. The Metro Charcoal is my favorite, it has a really nice color to it. We either pair it with a grey grout or white. The Metro Gris is also a good option. We usually use it on the floor and do a subway tile on the walls if we are doing a bathroom. Almost always use white grout with the Metro Gris. I have yet to try the beige or cream version of this tile. I have read reviews that it doesn't do well on floors as far as stains go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice tile. Really Impressed! Tile looks great. This tile is in my master bathroom. The bathroom is small but made it look amazing. Didnt have the color difference that some complained about. Also we off set the tile so if one was a little longer it would not be noticed. Althought we did have a lot of tiles with chips on the cornors and along the sides. Other then that the tile looks really nice. I have a bunch more pictures but it will only let me add one picture on the app
