Reflecting the beauty of Spanish culture and design, the Merola Tile Archivo Plain 4-7/8 in. x 4-7/8 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile transmits the splendor of old-world European elegance. Featuring a buttercream base glaze, warm sepia tones gradually darken the edges for an antiquated look. Imitations of scuffs and spots that are the marks of well-loved, worn, century-old tile bring rustic charm to your interior. Slight undulation throughout the smooth surface and asymmetrical edges convince that this tile is handcrafted. There are 8 different variations available that are randomly scattered throughout each case. With the ability to be paired with the rest of the encaustic-inspired Archivo series, the Archivo Plain offers a beautiful solid field option that can also make a statement on its own.

Questions & Answers

Can this Merola Tile Archivo Plain be used as shower flooring? And will it need to be sealed?

Can this Merola Tile Archivo Plain be used as shower flooring? And will it need to be sealed?
Asked by: Tater
Hi Tater, Our Archivo Plain can be used on a shower floor, but keep in mind that this does not have a high slip resistance rating and does not meet the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance. If there are small children or elderly adults using this shower, you might want to choose a tile that has a higher slip resistance. If this is not an area for concern, the glazed surface is chemical resistant and approved for shower floor usage. If this is an area of concern for you, we would recommend looking into our Mirambel Blanco https://thd.co/2MMzTgi. Although this is a larger format tile, this contains pre-scored grout lines that make this appear as smaller tiles. This tile has a DCOF (Dynamic Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.76. To be considered slip resistant for DCOF, a tile must meet or exceed the required rating of 0.42. We have one more suggestion that you could look into, our Artisan Blanco https://thd.co/2DAaujc. Similar to Archivo, this tile has a weathered look that would be great as a shower floor! Artisan has a C.O.F. rating between 0.6 and 0.79. When the C.O.F. rating is higher, it means that it’s more slip resistant. Receiving this C.O.F. rating also makes compliant with the ADA Guidelines! Sealing our Archivo Plain is a matter of personal preference. Sealing the tile can help prolong the life of your installation, it can also help prevent the grout lines and tile from dirt buildup. This tile has a glazed finish, which will help prevent contaminants from staining the tile if cleaned up in a reasonable amount of time. Routine maintenance can also help prolong the life of your tile. If you would like, you could choose to seal the tile as an added layer of protection. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials, and their Aqua Mix Penetrating Sealer http://thd.co/1TFzOUL is a great option for this item. Be sure to follow all directions on the packaging for the best results. We recommend testing the sealer on scrap prior to sealing the whole installation, as it could alter the appearance of the tile. Sealing the tile before grouting can help prevent the grout from staining, but it is still very important to clean the wet grout as you go for the best results. Sealing after installation can also help seal the grout, prolonging the life of the grout as well. 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!

I’m concerned about breakage. I will be having the tile shipped to my nearest store. Do I have to pay for broken tiles?

Asked by: CENTMN
Hi CENTMN, If you receive broken tiles within your shipment, you can start a replacement parts request with the Home Depot. To start this request, you will need to get in touch with a Home Depot representative and provide them with pictures of the broken product before the request is complete. We recommend 10% overage to account for cutting, future repairs, and dye lot and caliber consistency. We take great care in prepping our products for shipping and respect all items that ship from our warehouse. Unfortunately, we have no control over the shipment once it leaves our warehouse, but we package items like this in conforming hot foam bags to protect them during shipment. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is it possible to order a sample of this tile?

Hi EL, Yes, we offer samples of our Archivo Plain at The Home Depot! This comes on a 3”x4” sample card which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole tile https://thd.co/2IQeJrM. To be able to see the whole tile, we recommend ordering a case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile.

Is this the tile that is at the very beginning of the video - before it switches to the woman talking about the tile series? It is on the wall with a vertical blue patterned tile stripe. You can see it in the thumbnail view. In the video it looks like it has a little more sheen.
Asked by: Teresa
Hi Tesera, Yes, our Archivo Plain is the tile that’s at the beginning of he video! This tile still reflects some light, but not enough to where we could call it medium sheen or high sheen. If you would like to determine if this tile is right for you, we offer samples on The Home Depot! This comes on a 3”x4” sample card which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern https://thd.co/2IQeJrM. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering a 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.
