Beautiful Tile
We live this mid century modern looking tile. We used the black in our powder room. It looks so beautiful, that we may now use the white in the main bath.

These tiles are amazingly beautiful. The black is almost an extremely dark great, but still black. I will be installing these as my master bath backsplash and will need to get a tile cutter to do so for the triangle spaces at the base. I have included a picture of what that will look like in case you were wondering. These tiles look art deco to me once they are laid out. 5* in appearance!!!

Love these tiles. My wife and I are a designer and Architect and were looking for something a unique for our recent bathroom renovation. These tiles gave us the ability to make some pretty unique patterns, and gave us something that was very much our style. Easy install, good quality tile. Showed up at the house packaged well so nothing was broken.

The Merola Tile Aster Hex Nero Encaustic porcelain floor and wall porcelain tile is some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. The black & white will give me a such a choice of patterns. This is in the medium sheen and measures a perfect 8 5/8 X 9 7/8". This can be integrated into so many different designs. Can be so creative with this tile. The frost resistant feature says I can use it both indoor or outdoor. I can see a perfect backsplash in the kitchen with this. It will work with other Aster series products. Exciting. So pleased.

I love this tile. The only reason I’m giving it 3 stars is because the color is very different than pictured it is more of a royal blue/navy than the teal it appears to be in the picture. I was lucky it was purchased to be used in a small powder room and I hadn’t bought any decor items yet based on the real color that I thought it would be. It looks beautiful though.
