There is no visible difference. I bought both and did a blind comparison test with my wife. She guessed that the Taylora was the more expensive one.

This tile is only 2.79 on the store display, Why is it more here?

Asked by andy December 6, 2020

Answers

Had the same issue, and discovered something very odd - the online price fluctuates with the time of day. During store hours, online price was approx $3/sf. When store closed, $4/sf. Next morning, when store open, $3/sf again. Very odd.

This tile is really pretty, but is thick, so it was a little more difficult for my contractors to work with. It definitely looks much more expensive than it is.
by Stacy
beautiful but thick
I love this tile but it is super thick, so it has to cover an entire surface vs being an accent on a wall with other normal size tile. Because of this we made it a feature wall in our shower and used grey tiles on the wall and a stone pebble floor to tone it down. Otherwise it would have been too busy. I love how it turned out. All our hardware will be chrome.
by jewelzr
Beautiful!
I have a very small bathroom that is tiled with the ugly 4x4 tiles floor to ceiling, the previous owner glazed them white so the bathroom became a blank slate. Initially the white mosaic tile floor was going to remain BUT then I say what a bad grout job the previous owner did and there was built up mortar and it was just YUK! So I chose this tile and what a difference, it is like a brand new bathroom. I cannot stop admiring my new floor.
by Petesmom
terribly made - when you put the tiles adjacent to each other, the lines on the artwork don't line up!
Unless you want your floor to look wonky, make sure the curves and drawings line up with adjacent tile. See image - tile edges are perfectly lined up but the image on the tile don't line up with adjacent tile. I first dry fitted the tiles to see if any could be salvageable and line up with one another but they really don't. Going to return what I didn't use and throw the rest away.

Simply Beautiful!
We were a little worried after reading some reviews, but I’m so glad we purchased this tile! Our guest bathroom looks beautiful. Our tile guys had no problems working with this tile, only complements.

Beautiful results for my powder room.
This was my first time tiling a bathroom floor. The tiles were thicker than I expected, but were no problem for the room where I installed them. I used 1/8" spacers and dove gray grout. I was able to color match the blue and dark gray for wall color and baseboards to match it perfectly. I would buy these tiles again in a heartbeat. I rented a wet tile saw to cut the tiles.

This tile was great although a hand tile cutter won't work for this tile because it is 1/2 inch thick but I know own a wet saw and have future needs for it. I also bought it at home depot.
