Asked by Dean May 13, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! We suggest using a 1/4" grout line to accommodate any variation in size or the subsurface and to allow movement. Dependent on how level your subfloor is, the smallest grout joint that we would suggest would be 3/16”. We also recommend the use of spacers to keep your installation consistent. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Bex February 19, 2021

Asked by curious November 20, 2020

Hi! Our Chester Nero Subway Tile is not suitable for floor installations as it has a PEI rating of 0, meaning it is intended for wall use only. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is this tile easy maintenance in the shower, bathroom wall, backsplash

Asked by Gee November 17, 2020
1
Answer

Hi! Our Chester Acqua Tile is not hard to keep clean and like all of our products, is rather easy to maintain. Aside from soap and water, we also recommend using a neutral, non-acidic cleaner that is safe for everyday cleaning. A product that would fit into this category would be the Custom Building Products Grout and Tile Cleaner, which can found at the following link https://thd.co/2TMZvKx. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by KRISTEN June 12, 2020

Hi! Though our Chester Bianco and Rugosa Blanco Brilo Pencil Tile both have a similar white color tone, it is important to note that these products are produced by different factories and may not match perfectly. If interested, we do offer a trim tile that directly coordinates with our Chester Bianco Tile. You can find our Chester Bianco Trim Tile here, https://thd.co/3hrxWCC.

These tiles are so pretty, classic but the bumpy texture and mid matte finish keep it organic and transitional. We did white on the backsplash and black on the island for a perfect tuxedo look! (Photo makes the black look navy, its not. It’s a very dark gray which looks black to the eye without being too striking)

Very impressed with this Merola Tile. I got it in black, white and aqua. No broken pieces in any of my orders. My tile setter had to make lots of cuts to pull off the stove backsplash and he said it was very easy to work with. Lovely colors and easy to clean. I really liked that one long and one short edge came finished so you don't necessarily need a bullnose or schluter edge.

This tile is a refreshing upgrade from the standard subway tiles. The difference is the edges have variations and the surface is somewhat uneven. When you look at the surface at an angle the slight unevenness becomes apparent. It is a delightful change from the run of the mill tile. I will be using these in my new to be rebuilt kitchen. The white of the tile goes well with my white cabinets. The uneven edges give the tiles an interesting look along the grout lines. Made in Spain and free of allergens, the tile is a good choice if subway is your thing.

This tile has a nice look. Some of the edges are a little rough. I suppose it will not matter once the grouting is done but it makes me a little less impressed with the quality. This would be nice in a bath room. My wife is going to use it around the sink in the motor home as a splash protector. This would also be great for around the bathroom or kitchen sink as a splash protector.

Thank you for your feedback, if you have any additional questions or concerns please contact us at 1-800-963-7652.

I wasn't sure about the size of the tile but once I put it up and used it as a border, I was really pleased with how it turned out. It is labeled as aqua but it's more of a gray blue color so it's neutral. It has a nice shine to it making it look crisp and clean. It was easy to install and made a perfect border for our other tile. I like this subway tile look too making it classic but modern looking.

The quality of these tiles is very sturdy. Although the edges are rough and hard to align but it adds a shabby chic effect. We live in a rental home so we like adding personal touches to feel more at home. I like the larger subway tile style and bright white color. It is also very easy to clean. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a classic design.

I got these tiles to use for my bathtub surround when I remodel my bathroom. I wanted something other than the usual subway tile and since these are 12” long they are similar yet different enough for my needs. They are ¼” thick with a slightly varied edge which gives them an eclectic look and not quite the rigid traditional look subway tile usually has. There are 22 tiles per box, so I still need to figure out how much more I need once I decide if I just want to replace my existing surround or take it to the ceiling. I’m not worried about matching the color because I plan to use a mixture of grays and whites in a random pattern.

The Merola Tile Chester Acqua 3 in. x 12 in. Ceramic Wall Tile is a lovely high sheen modern tile that would look good in a bathroom or around a sauna or other damp location because water wont go through the glaze. Its color is pale but still very nice and the longer subway tile means id have to use less of them. Tile is made in Spain and came with no damage. I would recommend these tiles because they are for both indoor and outdoor use.

Very shiny light icy bluish teal shade, (I guess.) Not quite a blue or a turquoise or a gray, I've seen it also referred to as spa. Outdoors it looked blue to me, indoors it looked more teal. A valid option for neutral no matter what the lighting.. You can see a little texture to the tile. I received 22 tiles to trial and all arrived intact without damage. There is some fine netlike material on each tile that will need to be scraped or washed off the fronts and backs before installation. It comes off easy. The tile is pretty and goes well with the shiny white and black chair rail tiles also by Merola. Looks retro next to the shiny black chair rail tile. A good size to experiment with different patterns of installation.
