Questions & Answers


Why does the description say 12x12 but pictures and other questions indicate that the tile is smaller?

Asked by Josh January 25, 2017

Hi Josh, The sheet measures to be approximately 12” x 12”. Each individual subway piece is approximately 2” x 4”. The other product shown in the bathroom as an accent to this tile is our Cobble Aquatica Cobalto http://thd.co/2jec91T. This is a 2” x 8” mosaic strip accent piece. We do not offer samples of the trim, but we do offer samples of the subway mosaic if you wanted to see them prior to making a large purchase. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Grout recommendation please

Asked by AJM July 16, 2016

Good Afternoon, Design is ultimately a matter of personal preference so it is best for you to decide for yourself how these will look when arranged like this, but the three products that you have chosen do coordinate well together. Please be advised that even though these products are intended to coordinate, the color could vary slightly because they are not manufactured at the same time. Grout color is also a matter of personal preference, so it is best for you to decide that for yourself as well. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials. #381 Bright White, #386 Oyster Gray #165 Delorean Gray, or #185 New Taupe could all work well in this installation. Grout color is a crucial choice in an installation as it could alter the look of your project. Home Depot stores offer dried grout samples in the flooring department, and we would recommend taking a sheet of this tile to your local store to decide what you feel matches best. If you have any further questions, please reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps

Colour & Trim Question ...

Asked by lydia August 5, 2014

Good afternoon, Only items with the same 'Series' name are intended to be used together, such as all Cobble items or all Metro items. Mixing items from different series means that they might be significantly different in thickness, design, color, and so on. We do offer two hexagonal Cobble products, seen here: http://www.homedepot.com/s/cobble%2520hex?NCNI-5 Those would coordinate with the Cobble Subway products you mention. However, different products even within the same series may have slight color differences due to dye lots, and may not match identically. Thanks for your interest in our products! You are welcome to call us at 800-963-7652 for more assistance with products.

for merola tile specialist only....white cobble tile

Asked by mike May 17, 2014

Good morning, We currently offer Aquatic Trim pieces for the Cobble Subway, however we can suggest some simple, creative solutions for your question. For instance, you might try an angled and reoriented border, such as is depicted in the attached photo. Alternatively, we do offer a variety of Bullnose Trim pieces that may appropriately compliment your installation. Simply search “Merola Bullnose” and you’ll find several choices that vary in color and finish. Given your question, these products may be more suitable to your needs than most other trim pieces. If you’ve purchased tile already and you decide to return it, The Home Depot has a "No-Hassle" Returns Policy and accepts returns both online and at any local Home Depot location. You are also welcome to contact our Customer Service department at 800-963-7652 with any questions you may have concerning our products. We hope you are able to find something that meets your needs! Thanks for your interest in our products! Hope that helps!

Is there trim tiles that coordinate with this tile glaze?

Asked by Chilijan May 2, 2014

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. I believe the best advice would be to talk to one of our many specialty department professionals at your local Home Depot store. For any other questions, please visit your nearest local Home Depot store or call us at HomeDepot.com Customer Service 800-430-3376.

how "white" is this tile? Whiter than "snow white?"

Asked by Steve March 23, 2014

Hi Spark, This white tile is fairly bright. When compared to our grout color sample of 'snow white,' this tile is brighter. However, people's perception of color can vary greatly, so we suggest ordering one sheet of this tile to see if you like it in person. Online orders are returnable to your local Home Depot store if you decide the tile isn't right for your project. You can also order samples through our company's website at www.MerolaTile.com. Click on the division with the Home Depot logo and then, in the Model Number search box, replace the text with this model number: FDXCSW. This should bring up the product at the bottom of the page, where you can click 'Order Sample'. You may choose up to 4 samples for the cost of shipping; samples are 4"x4" swatches. If you need any help, please feel free to call our customer service line at 800-963-7652. Thanks for your interest in our products!

How Do I Make Newly Ceramic Tile Flooring on Bathroom Shiny?

Asked by the_marine's July 2, 2012

HI Annaisa, I'm not sure if you're specifically referring to this product, Cobble Subway White. I cannot see the attachments you mention, but it sounds like these questions may be better suited for the Home Depot DIY forum. Best of luck with your project!

Not your average subway tile...BETTER
For our traditional-with-a-modern-twist kitchen re-design, we knew we wanted clean white subway tile to go with the overall style of our 1930s bungalow. But we wanted something just a little special...and we found it with this mosaic! As the previous reviewer stated, we also loved that it has a natural, organic feel since it's not machine made tiles, and the slight variation gives subtle character. The title is nice and thick (so plan accordingly with grout and fixtures), and paired beautifully with a marble pencil trim (since it doesn't explicitly have a matching bullnose or trim on the site) and delorean gray grout. Our tile guy said it installed nicely, and though he had to adjust to the "cobbled" look (if you're OCD about perfect lines and symmetry, this may not be the tile for you), he said it was awesome and the tile was great quality. More pricey than other options, but worth it for us to make our small kitchen feel extra-special!

This tile was, indeed, cobbled and rustic. Not smooth...
This tile was, indeed, cobbled and rustic. Not smooth at all. I was looking for a smaller white “subway” tile for my backsplash, but this won’t be it.

Worth the money
I really wanted a handmade subway tile look for my new kitchen, but I wanted a smaller size than standard subway tile. These were more expensive than anything I had looked at, so I hesitantly ordered them knowing that I could return them if necessary. I paid a little more for quick delivery and they came the next day. We couldn't be more pleased with the look. Our contractor loves them as well. As another reviewer said, if you are obsessive about straight lines and and symmetry, then these are not for you. If you want a beautiful, handmade cobblestone look, you will love them. They are a true, bright white and we used white grout with them. The look is sensational.

gorgeous tile
It took a long time to find this tile and I could not like it more. This is not machine made and has an uneven appearance. Which is what makes it look so nice as a back splash.
