It is easy to picture sun-drenched streets of Spain when looking at the Merola Tile Artisan Azul Decor 13 in. x 13 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have four squares with realistic lines in between to mimic grout. The low-sheen white glaze is offset by a blue floral design in the center of the tile. Imitations of scuffs and spots mark well-loved, century-old tiles. Rich red tones from the ceramic underneath peek through, adding a worn finishing touch on this uniquely aged piece. There are 8 different variations available that are randomly scattered throughout each case. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice, or left ungrouted for a rugged finish. Bring rustic charm to your interior with this easy-to-maintain look.

Is the Artisan Azul tile in this series a close enough color match to be in the same room? For ex...

Asked by Melinda April 12, 2020
1
Answer

Hi, Melinda! Yes, our Artisan Damero Azul and Artisan Azul Décor are meant to coordinate with each other as they are from the same collection. As for sample inquiries, please contact our Customer Service Team at (800)-963-7652.

Is 13” x 13” the measurement of a single tile or the measurement of 4 tiles completing the blue diamond pattern?

Asked by RB February 12, 2020
2
Answers

Hi! Our Artisan Azul Decor is a single 13 in. x 13 in. ceramic slab that has four individual squares separated by scored grout lines. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Would this tile be practical/suitable for a kitchen countertop?

Asked by James January 11, 2020
1
Answer

Hi, James! Yes, our Artisan Blanco is suitable for countertop installations as it is highly durable, stain resistant, and easy to maintain. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is this suitable for bathroom floor? Will it be too slippery?

Asked by Vee October 18, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Vee, Yes, our Artisan Blanco would be a great option for a bathroom floor! This tile has a C.O.F. (Coefficient of Friction) rating of 0.6 to 0.79 which makes this compliant with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) guidelines for slip resistance. All C.O.F. means is how slip resistant a tile floor is; the higher the value, the more slip resistant the tile is. 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!

Can this tile be used for a shower/tub wall?

Asked by Peanut0601 June 8, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Peanut0601, Yes, our Artisan Azul Decor would be great on a shower wall! This tile has a glazed, matte finish that will not absorb water through the glaze. If the background construction is waterproofed properly, this tile would be a great choice for a shower wall. 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.

I see somexanswers that state you dont need grout. How do i put this tile on a wall?

Asked by Keith May 25, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Keith, We would not recommend installing our Artisan Azul Décor without grout or grout lines. Grout is used between tiles to help prevent the tiles from rubbing together and cracking. Depending on the flatness of your subfloor, you could use either a 3/16” or a 1/4” grout line. Since this tile isn’t rectified, we wouldn’t recommend anything smaller. Having a rectified tile means that the edges have been ground down for precise sizing. Tile tends to expand and contract, if the grout joints are too small it can cause damage to the installation such as cracking. To be able install these to your wall, we would recommend adhering our Artisan Azul Décor to a cement backerboard such as HardieBacker Board, http://thd.co/2ayfAPJ. For an adhesive, Home Depot always recommends using Custom Building Products installation materials, and their VersaBond White Fortified Mortar https://thd.co/2C59Hou is a great option. This mortar can be installed to a variety of substrates, including concrete, plywood, vinyl, and existing tile. This is suitable for interior and exterior installations. For all installation materials, we recommend following all of the directions on the packaging for the best results. If you are concerned about the installation, we recommend getting in touch with a local contractor for assistance with your project. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Answers

These products are not from the same line so they will not be a perfect match, but they still might coordinate enough for your taste.

Does bull nose tile come in this selection also?

Asked by Kelley May 3, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Kelley, Unfortunately, we don’t carry any bullnose trims that would directly coordinate with our Artisan Blanco. Seeing as this field tile has a variety of texture and designs, intended to replicate a rustic feel, we wouldn’t be able to offer a suitable coordinating bullnose. In situations like this, we would recommend buying Schluter Trim http://thd.co/1qBLqjw which can be found at The Home Depot. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Best color for the grout?

Asked by Keith April 11, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Keith, Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials. Two great options for our Artisan Azul Décor are #10 Antique White or, if you’re looking for a bit more contrast, #180 Sandstone. Being as coordinating is a matter of personal preference, it is best to decide what color you feel matches best. Home Depot stores offer dried grout samples, so it is best that you take this tile to your local store and compare it to these samples in the flooring department. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Gorgeous!!!
I absolutely love this tile! Used it to cover an ugly hearth in my apartment and it is a show stopper! Would definitely recommend it!!! Had to contact the manufacturer for edge pieces, but they were very easy to work with and got what I needed. I think they are a steal for the money - love Merola tiles!

These ceramic tiles are just beautiful. It has a rustic weathered look that can go in any traditional room. It's a large ceramic tile so they are not individual squares like you think they are in the picture. All 4 squares are set as one so the installation process is much quicker than individual small squares. It's perfect for a bathroom or kitchen.

I am very impressed with this design. Has a very "aged" look and feel. Also, it's very heavy. This is going to be a definite learning experience for both me and my wife, as neither of us has ever installed tile. Doing some reading on the Home Depot DIY section. Will probably put on the floor as there is less prep work involved. The kitchen walls are already tiled.

The floor tiles are very pretty. The colors are soft and muted but still have some pop. I will use them in either my pantry as pictured or in my entry way. I need to rent a tile saw if I'm doing the pantry but that is not hard to do. I think the quality is very high and they look like they will hold up to years and years of usage. I can't wait to get mastic and get them installed.

The Merola Tile Artisan Azul Decor 13 X 13 Inch ceramic floor and wall tile is the perfect addition to the design I have in mind. It offers me the opportunity to combine with other Merola tile designs which gives me a soft, beautiful look that is somewhat rustic and old century looking. The low sheen finish will be perfect for a backsplash I have in mind. The perfect size offers a grouted or not grouted look for a larger space if desired. They are pre scored of I want to grout. This is definitely a durable tile. The white with the blue floral will be a designers dream. Happy to have this.

A really great product, which arrived nicely packaged and thus no broken tiles or chipped corners. The tile itself is 3/8 inch thick, and 13 inch x 13 inch, with a centered horizontal and vertical cut-line, giving the appearance of four 6.5 inch x 6.5 inch tiles. The cut-line is 1/16" in width, so use that as the spacer for setting multiple tiles. When grouting them, you can use any color, since the grout will fill the cut-line as well as the actual grout line.

I love them! I have been trying to find a tile that combines the charm of traditional European Countryside design with Modern stainless steel appliances and brushed nickel fixtures. This is it. These ceramic tiles are approximately 13 3/16" square, scored to give the appearance of (4) 6 5/8" tiles. The 1/16" scored "grout lines" are the natural clay color and blend well with the rough, weathered age look of the glazed tile. You could use 1/16" spacers for setting purposes. The pictures show the tile against a red mahogany stained wood. I may use this or cherry stain for my cabinets. As always, when planning tile work, order more than necessary for your project for necessary cuts or breakage. My tiles arrived unbroken, however on some of the tiles the horizontal score lines were deeper than the vertical scores. Not a big deal though. These tiles can be used for cuts as the pattern and repeats are random. Or if desired, you can add some grout when setting the tiles. As with any tile, do a dry layout and inspect for damage or imperfections. Another quality tile by Merola. 5 Stars.
