We recently had this Braga Classic tile installed in our guest bathroom. We had them use charcoal grout and the room is beautiful! My question: can I use a steam mop, such as a Shark, on the low or medium setting on this tile?
Asked by: TwentiesCollectionFan
This is going to depend on the type of grout and the manufacturers recommendation on cleaning. Find out from the installer the brand they used.

Can this tile be used as a shower floor. Thanks !
Asked by: IL
Hi IL, This tile has a glazed, matte finish and can be used as a shower floor! If the background construction is waterproofed properly, this tile would be a great choice for a shower floor. If you’re concerned that the tile would be too slippery when wet, I would recommend taking a look at our Berkeley series https://thd.co/2oE46nc. Berkeley has a higher DCOF rating (slip resistance) which would make it ideal for a shower floor. It also features a similar pattern as the Braga, but in a larger format and it comes with scored grout lines separating the tile patterns. We also have samples available for these products! Please feel free to contact our Customer Service department at (800)-963-7652 and we can walk you through the process of ordering samples. Hope this helps!

Can this tile be used as a swimming pool waterline tile in South Florida - no freezing weather..?
Asked by: DipInThePool
Personally I wouldn’t trust the finish to hold up to pool water. The tile looks awesome in our bathroom but it has somewhat of a matte finish. I would be afraid of it fading.

Braga Classic Encaustic 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile (11.11 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 239.

His first time tiling a floor and it turned out perfect. I just love the look. Used 1/8" spacers and premixed delorean gray sanded grout. The floor in this bath is 5x4. We used just over 2 boxes of tile. This tile was nice for a beginner because each tile is the finished design, you don't have to match 4 tiles to get a complete design. The paint we used with it is Benjamin Moore Shadow Gray (2125-40)

Beautiful colors (I used it in a black & white powder room) and I used DeLorean gray grout. Note: my handyman added a sealer "admix" to the grout, so I won't ever have to seal the grout--so, easy cleaning!

Cutting it to fit the bathroom was a piece of cake, and i used a hand machine, no power tools used. The look in the room is stunning! the only draw back is in the morning, they are a tad cold :) but i expected that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin tile! Take note of the tile thickness - it is not like the encaustic tile you see in store and probably shouldn’t be advertised as floor tile. We opted to use a different tile for our bathroom floor after it arrived and we saw that it was so thin.
