Questions & Answers


would this work long term in a shower?

Asked by Rubina July 20, 2018

Hi Rubina, Yes, this tile would be fine for a shower. Just make sure that it is grouted and sealed properly. Keep in mind that grout lines are the first to show dirt and grim and are the hardest to clean, so I would recommend installing only as an accent. Hope this helps and good luck! Remodel Girl

what is the size of the individual tile?

Asked by CHRIS September 20, 2018

Hi Christie, The individual arabesque mosaic ships are 1.87”x2.75”. This and other relevant information can be found in the “Product Overview” section and in the “Specifications” section! If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

What size spacers do I need for the grout lines?

Asked by Lis April 4, 2018

It is recommended to use 1/8” tile spacer for consistent sizing.

How big is each individual tile?

Asked by VT February 17, 2019

From top to bottom 2 5/8. And from sided to side 1 7/8.

Can you really use it on the floor?

Asked by Samantha July 23, 2016

Hi Samantha, This tile can be used on a floor of the bathroom and in the shower! This tile is durable enough for light-duty floor traffic where little dirt is present. Also, this tile has a marginal skid resistance. We also offer this same style in a matte white version that offers a high resistance to abrasion and meets ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance. The matte finish may be a better choice for your installation because of the higher slip resistance rating. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!


Asked by Diana August 20, 2014

Yes. I over-ordered and just returned what I didn't use. Super easy.

Should sanded or non-sanded grout be used with this tile?

Asked by Carol April 12, 2018

The type of grout depends on installation location. So for floor installation, sanded grout is suggested, and for wall installation, it should be unsanded.

I have approx 32 sq ft to cover in a kitchen how much tile would I need to purchase

Asked by Lori February 18, 2016

Hi Lori, Each sheet covers .76 square feet. To cover this space, you will need approximately 42 sheets. We always recommend buying 10% overage to account for cutting and future repairs, so if you follow this, you will want approximately 47 sheets. Before making any purchases, be sure to get the exact measurements to assure you order enough tile for your project. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

What trim is recommended for this tile?

Asked by Baycat August 30, 2018

Used on a bathroom floor in a basement. No trim. Makes for a very clean and polished look suitable for a turn of the century home.

How many sheets do I need for 10 sq feet

Asked by Cindy May 23, 2017

Beautiful but Frustrating
Quality :
Value :
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

Response from MerolaTile Customer CareApril 28, 2020
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.
Absolutely gorgeous!

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)

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!
