Product Overview

  • Inspired by the classic artistic beauty of encaustic pattern tile
  • Modern matte finish in tones of muted blue and eggshell white
  • Durable enough for use in kitchens, hallways and dining rooms
Capturing the artisanal look of cement tile, the Merola Tile Berkeley Blue 17-5/8 in. x 17-5/8 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile offers an encaustic, old-world design that can blend into any decor. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have four 8-3/4 in. squares with scored grout lines. With a recognizable European-inspired design, the simplistic arcs frame the snowflake inspired patterns that create continuity throughout the installation. Set on an eggshell base glaze, the muted blue designs offer the ability to be used in modern and rustic settings. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice or left ungrouted for a rugged finish. Use this tile in most interior settings, including kitchens, showers, backsplashes and entryways.

Has anyone done a bathroom floor? Would you post your picture..I think this would make a crisp, clean look...afraid to take the plunge.
Asked by: Scaredycat
Yes, we just installed this tile in a small bathroom at our house at the shore. It looks beautiful! We haven’t finished remodeling the bathroom yet but have attached a picture of the floor.

what cleaner should be used on this floor. Thanks, Pamela
Asked by: Pamela
HI Pamela, You can clean our Berkeley Blue using a neutral, non-acidic cleaner. A product that would fit into this category would be the Custom Building Products Concentrated Stone and Tile Cleaner https://thd.co/2uzypZX. We never recommend cleaning tiles with bleach or other harsh chemicals except in the case of tough stains. While the bleach wouldn’t harm the tile, it has the potential to discolor grout over time. If you chose to use a homemade mixture, you could explore the use of water and white vinegar. Another homemade option would be to use warm, soapy water with a new soft sponge. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

We just completed a kitchen remodel that included a back entryway/mudroom area, which is where we used this Merola tile. This berkeley blue color is stunning and, according to my contractor, easy to install. We choose a dark grey grout color and grouted the pre-cut lines that come in the terra cotta color as well (those lines dried a slightly lighter grey, but nobody notices). Everyone who comes to our house compliments us on the beautiful entryway floor! You won't regret choosing this tile.
