Beautiful but Frustrating
This tile is without a doubt beautiful and unique; however, it is extremely frustrating to install. If you’re a DIY-er and small details bother you, I’d highly recommend just taking the jump and paying a professional to install. I tried my best and overall it looks okay, but definitely has some areas that bother me. This tile is attached to a mesh backing, however, the tile pieces are evenly placed on the mesh. 1/8 tile spacers fit tightly in some areas and in others fall right out. Have to be careful using a wet saw with the mesh backing or it totally disintegrates. This also makes it difficult sawing a completely straight edge. Overall 6/10 but probably 10/10 if professionally installed

Hi! Thank you for sharing your feedback! We are sorry to hear about your experience with our Arabesque Glossy White. When cutting this product, we advise laying out as much of a full sheet as possible then trimming the mesh with scissors to isolate areas which require cutting. Individual chips which require cuts can be removed from the mesh backing then cut. We recommend using a wet saw with a diamond tipped blade as that will offer the best cut with the least chance of breakage. Attempting to cut full mosaic sheets with a wet saw may dissolve the adhesive and cause pieces to separate from the backing.

    Love this tile
    This tile is beautiful! Its tricky to install but so worth it. You must have lots of patience! If you can’t deal with imperfections, use light colored grout. I went with natural gray grout and I wish I went lighter but I am still happy with how it came out.

      We wanted a elegant, clean white look. This was the perfect backsplash to help make that happen. We went with a white grout. We love the glossy-ness of the tiles. We had it professionally installed so I can't comment on if it was hard or easy.

      We have gotten SO MANY compliments on this tile, and we love it too! We used this tile as our backsplash in our kitchen after looking at many other (most of which were far more expensive). This was the best tile for beauty, function, and price. I wanted something unique for our kitchen, but not so crazy that it would go out of style or stick out too much, and this tile was perfect. It has a classic, aged feel, yet also a modern, new feel. I installed this myself, as a fairly new DIY tiler. The hardest part was actually cutting it. If you have a wet saw, it will be a breeze. Me, I had a basic tile cutter and nippers. The pieces sliced nicely in half horizontally, but refused to have a perfect cut vertically. That's when I used the nippers, which was very time consuming (and I would NOT recommend it). Since you're saving money with this tile, do yourself a favor and rent a wet saw or hire a pro. Also, if you are a DIYer I would suggest white grout, you can still see the shape and beauty of the tile, but the white grout will hide any imperfect cuts around the edges. Regardless of my inabilities to install this quickly, the outcome is beautiful and I wouldn't change the style for anything. (see pictures)

      Such a neat and clean surface
      I got lucky and got this tile on sale so that is a plus but most importantly it looks absolutely beautiful on the wall of my shower. I used pure white grout and it looks simple and clean. The picture shows shade variation but when the light is on it looks more even. I personally like the variation as it looks natural. It received 4 stars instead of 5 stars because my tile contractor mentioned that it is not an easy tile to install. So if you are going solo DIY I'd watch several videos and instead of buying 20% more than what you need buy 30% more.

      The tiles themselves were fine but the mesh backer had water-soluble glue, which completely fell off when I cut it with a wet tile saw. This made it very difficult to install in the shower pan.

      Hi, Michael! We are sorry for the issues you experienced with our Arabesque Glossy White. We wanted to clarify for you and future customers that we recommend removing individual chips which require cuts from the mosaic sheet. Many mosaic products use a water-soluble adhesive to bond the chips, which may dissolve and cause them to detach if cut on a wet saw. We appreciate your feedback and hope you were satisfied with the result of your installation!

      This is a bright, glossy white tile. It looks best with a colored grout (I used light grey). Our kitchen backsplash turned out great. We did the work ourselves and even though you do need to be patient, it is not difficult. There are a lot of small cuts to get the fill-in pieces just right.

      Very difficult for a DIYer. They should sell some half pieces. Too many tiles to cut to get a finished look. Turns out beautifully if done right.

      Perfect!
      They tiles are beatutiful. The white is really nice and heavily coated. Not like some that I've seen were you can see the through the white giving it a pink hue. Make sure you measure accurately. The tile are not 12x12 like most mesh sheets. I didn't pay attention when purchased and had to reorder 30 more sheets...ouch! But my fault! They are about 25% smaller.

          loved the way they look
          it was a bit challenging to cut the half tiles to come out with a straight edge, but my husband and I were able to do it ourselves. Used this as an accent area with liner tile border and white subway field tile.

          Don't do it yourself
          The tiles are great. No problem there. But after I bought it and had LOTS of trouble installing, I did some online reading. Even a lot of pros won't install this tile shape because it is so difficult. Don't try to do it if you aren't a pro.

            Lovely tile!
            The tile looks so beautiful on my backsplash! But my tile installer did have issues (as others have mentioned) with the individual tiles coming off the mesh backing while cutting, so was a little more time consuming to get it installed. I went with a white grout due to some inconsistencies with spacing for reason mentioned above, but was not noticeable at all once grouted, and I am extremely pleased with the look. It'sa very lovely addition to my renovated kitchen!
