Some of the tiles don’t have the same size or aren’t completely flat. They are also very thick, if you’re planning to put them in the wall as I did. I love the pattern but putting them on the wall was a pain.

    Beautiful and Easy!
    I used this tile on my bathroom floor and could not be happier with how it turned out! I used white grout, but I would highly suggest using the charcoal colored grout. The white is hard to keep clean on the floor!

              I am obsessed with this tile
              My husband and I are in the midst of a new construction home build. I’ve had my eye on this tile for a year and finally got to order and have it installed… it’s everything my girly bathroom dreams hoped for. It’s light and bright and beautiful and I love it so so much. (Picture taken before completion)

                Bathroom remodel
                This tile is thick and the pattern isnt perfect but if you play with the tiles you can make it work. We made the mistake of spread the grout all at once. When it came time to wiping it clean it was leaving it stained. Took some elbow grease to get it clean. If youre using a dark grout, go in small sections. We are very happy with the final outcome

                  Fabulous pattern
                  My floor looks awesome! I used Polyblend Charcoal sanded grout. 1/8 spacers. Make sure to seal the grout so the dark color lasts.

                          This tile looks very expensive when installed! I found only two boxes where the tile was smaller in dimensions.

                              Ordered this for a master bathroom with a subway tiles wall. This tile is great. Perfect shade of grey to match just about anything.

                                Had this tile installed on a side porch/side and garage entry hall. The tile is gorgeous, sturdy, and easy to clean! No issues with pattern/color matching. We used black grout as it is a high traffic area and didn’t want to worry about grout getting dirty.

                                  We used the tile in the kitchen for backsplash. The design is pleasing to the eye, not to busy. I did notice that some of the designs on the tile were not centered, but it is not that big of an issue. Just the critical eye at work. Cutting the tile went as expected. For my first large tile project things went well. Mama is a happy camper.

                                    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.

                                    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.

                                      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.

                                        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.

                                            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.
