Answer

Hi! Aside from soap and water, we also recommend using a neutral, non-acidic cleaner that is safe for everyday cleaning. A product that would fit into this category would be the Custom Building Products Grout and Tile Cleaner, which can found at the following link https://thd.co/2TMZvKx If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Hi, Christina! The grout color you are looking for that was used in our product images is #370 Dove Grey.

Can this tile be used on the shower floor?

Asked by Elba October 14, 2018

Answers

Yes

Can this tile be used on a shower wall?

Asked by Liz August 12, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Liz, Yes, our Amberes would be a great option on a shower wall! This tile has a glazed, matte finish that will not absorb water through the glaze. If you would like to determine if either of these tiles are right for you, we offer samples! Please be aware that samples come adhered to 6”x6” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering one case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by Ela2 June 25, 2018

Answer

Hi Ela2, Our Amberes is currently sold as a case which covers 11.07 square feet. The price that you mentioned in the title is the square foot price, not the price per one case. Please refer to the pricing on the product page for an accurate cost. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

I’ve ordered tile from Merola in the past and I’ve never been disappointed. The tile came extremely well packed with no damage at all. These tile are beautiful and reasonably thick but cut easily with a score type cutter or wet saw, I use both. I ordered this particular pattern because I liked the color palette but the design pattern is a bit large for the small space I was going to use them in so I’ll orde some more and use them for a larger room. Overall, excellent product.

This is a very classic design. Because of the design, you must have a relatively large area because of the design, you have to match certain sides. The end result is fantastic. I have laid it out on the second bath floor and it really brightens everything up. Because of the design, the black, grey, and white colors really stand out. The main problem is the weight. The tiles are large and very heavy.

Have been looking for a bathroom tile that would be perfect for our needs. This pattern is amazing for a small bath the design is not too much and the medium sheen is perfect. We are remodeling our bath this May so we did not put this down with grout but put it in place so that we could see if the pattern would be too much. We will be using a black grout. The tile is nice and square and thick highly recommend.

Beautiful tile! This is such a great look for a small area for a pop of fun. Perfect for a laundry room, bathroom, accent wall, patio, entryway, even the kitchen. I looked all over for a tile like this and hands down this one was the best. Some tiles of this decor are a thick clay with a painted top. I like this type better. Basically, a consistent size and color. I have boxes from different lots and they all are the same. I did notice a few of the tiles had a few blemishes. I try to use these in corners or areas where you can cut that portion off. Overall, most are great. Easy to cut with a tile saw. I will be using a medium gray grout on mine. This looks great in a modern farmhouse or even an eclectic modern decor. Great weekend project for diy'ers. You won't be disappointed with this look. Highly recommend!

Big Tile; Huge Impact
Impressive tile. Excellent quality and price. I ordered online and picked up at the store. Substantial packaging. Not one tile was broken. I would describe the color as a navy with a medium light blue grey accent. I am pairing it with Sherwin Williams Waterloo paint for the walls and its an exact match to the darker blue for reference.

Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
Tile is stunning once installed!! Patterned is large, so better for a big space (my 70sqf bathroom was good). I was worried that the "white" would look washed out and dingy, but it really looks fabulous!!

The tiles came in quickly and were even nicer in person! Not too cold on the feet either, and looks great with a silver grout.
