About This Product

Emulating the timeless beauty of marble stone, our BioTech Venato Hex Deco Dark 11 in. x 13 in. Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile combines cutting-edge antimicrobial technology with the versatility of durable, healthy, and easy to maintain porcelain tile. This matte hexagon tile features alternating framing patterns with grey veining and striations set on a white base glaze, which utilizes antimicrobial compounds such as zinc oxide and silver oxide to inhibit the ability for bacteria, mold, and fungi to replicate. This technology results in a 99% reduction of harmful microbes compared to typical surfaces. Its impervious, frost-proof, and durable features make it an ideal choice for residential or commercial indoor and outdoor installations, including kitchens, bathrooms, backsplashes, showers, entryways, and patios. The Venato Hex with BioTech glaze is ideal for any space which requires additional levels of safety and hygiene, and like all porcelain tile, it is made from natural ingredients and free of all allergens, VOCS, formaldehyde and PVC.

      Marble-like detailing
      This Merola hexagonal Bardiglio tile has marble-like details in the pattern. The veining, particularly the white on black in the center part of the pattern has at least 3 different variations across the tiles I examined. This way you get a cohesive pattern that looks a bit more natural than if all were perfect duplicates of each other. The tiles measure 11" across flat to flat, and 13" point to point. The pattern when several tiles are laid together gives a floral effect of interlocking petals. The finish is very smooth, again giving the impression of marble.

      Merola Tile Bio Hex Venato Deco Grey 11 in. X 13 in.
      We really needed something to keep all the bird seed under our multiple feeders from sprouting continually. And since the birds (and squirrels) neglected to pick up after themselves, we needed to get creative. We first tried artificial turf, then river rocks without much luck, as the seeds still sprouted and created a really tedious weeding problem. So, when we found this Merola Tile, we decided that it would be a perfect solution to our problem. It has a smooth glazed finish that does not absorb water and as it also inhibits bacteria, mold and fungi, it would be perfect for outdoors. We used two different colors of tile with no particular pattern intended. It now has a much neater, cleaner appearance and should be weed free! I love the new look of our feeding station and am very happy with the results!

      Merola made another excellent product line of porcelain tiles
      When I was just started to deal with tiles in my new house, I had a little knowledge of tile manufactures. Tiles are expensive and "play to try" approach quite risky (it is not a laminate tiles you can put and remove easily). Tiles from Merola company were amount my first ones and I never regretted. Come back to Merola tiles quite often. Review below will cover BioTech Hex Venato and Bardiglio lines from Merola (you see them side by side on the photo attached to the review): - Venato deco Dark (Model #FRLVEXDD) - Venato deco Grey (Model #FRLVEXDG) - Bardiglio deco grey (model# FRLBGXDC) - Bardiglio (model# FRLBGX) All of the tiles are having absolutely the same size - 11 in. x 13 in and thickness - 8 mm. All are perfectly made and have a low shine surface finish. In my personal opinion, I would not use those tiles on a floor in wet areas (they look to be slippery). However, for shower walls, floors in powder room or kitchen those tiles will be a perfect choice. As well you can make backsplash walls whenever you may see those tiles fit. Tried to cut them – basic 7" wet saw makes a fair job. Installation should not be difficult (but remember those are large tiles! Make sure that you have perfect tools). Need to measure. Precut and then install as any other tiles. As for color combinations - choice is yours!

      Better in person!
      This tile takes my breath away. I originally wanted a marble stone tile in this pattern but blew my budget. This product definitely deliver on my master bath and closet. My renovation isn't done yet but I'm more than pleased! I haven't tested its slip resistance yet but I'm sure it'll be fine.
