About This Product

Capturing the beauty of artisanal cement tile, our Merola Tile Braga Classic II Encaustic 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile is a gorgeous tribute to encaustic design.

                  LOVE THESE TILES
                  I love the style of these tiles but struggled to find the pattern in smaller print as my space is too small for the tiles that need four to make the pattern. I fell in love with these tiles the moment I saw them and was beyond excited to find the style in the smaller size which was perfect for my tiny bathroom. They look exactly how I hoped they would look and I couldn't be happier. The price was fantastic too. My husband says they feel a bit cool on his feet when he wakes up in the middle of the night to use bathroom. Doesn't faze me at all. Hope the attached pics help.

                    Colors are bright. You only need one tile to show the pattern where most other type tiles of this design require 4 tiles to complete the pattern. Easy for tile guys to install as well. I used an ice blue grout that tied right in with my wall color.

                    These Merola Tole Braga Classic II Encaustic 7-3/4" x 7-3/4" ceramic tiles were just what the wife wanted in the bathroom renovation. The tiles themselves seem durable and I didn't have too many issues with them chipping while cutting with a wet saw, but they are a little thinner than other tiles I've worked with. The tile surface has a medium sheen and a little bit of texture so they won't be as slippery as smooth-surface tiles, so these are nice for a bathroom where slipping in a large conern. All-around a great product.

                    I really like the look of this tile. I am using it outside even though it states interior tile. It makes a bold contrast against the amaretto colored brick pavers I am using in the back area. I am using these tiles on the three different steps I am making to the different levels of the back area. They are very thin so I am slightly nervous but as long as I thinset properly they should be fine. The pattern on these tiles is very attractive and draws the eye.

                    Gorgeous!
                    This tile is beautiful in a small bathroom. We used delorean gray grout. It was easy to install as it is porcelain rather than cement, but has the look of encaustic cement tile. Durable against all it may encounter in my little boys bathroom if you know what I mean!

                      Thin tile great for accent walls.
                      Packaging seemed sturdy enough with shrink Styrofoam top and bottom on boxes but few plates were still broken when opened them. Thiner side tiles, great for creating an accent wall or two. Overall loving the new look in my kitchen. Mostly this wall is for my dogs to look at it when they eat or drink, of course.
