About This Product

It is easy to picture sun-drenched streets of Spain when looking at the Merola Tile Faenza Azul Encaustic 13 in. x 13 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have nine squares separated by scored grout lines. This breathtaking blue glaze features a collection of encaustic-inspired designs. Imitations of the scuffs and spots that are the marks of well-loved, worn, century-old tile and the rich red tones peeking through are the perfect contrast to the faded shades of denim blue. These rustic scuffs and spots convince that this tile is truly aged. There are 3 different variations of scuffs and pattern arrangements available that are randomly scattered throughout each case, offering a sporadic patchwork look. Designed by interior architect and furniture designer Francisco Segarra, this tile is a true reflection of vintage industrial design. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice or left ungrouted for a rugged finish. Bring rustic charm to your interior with this easy-to-maintain look.

Answer This Question

A:  I ordered the sample size to see if I liked them before I purchased. They came in a row of three. When I purchased the tiles, they came in the 9 window shown above. I did have to cut several to fit my backsplash and they were very easy to trim. I thought it would be more difficult to alter them but it was not

        Q:Cal the 9 squares be separated?
        by|Feb 8, 2021
        4 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  They are all one piece with scored “grout lines”. So you can not separate the 9 squares unless you cut them with a tile cutter. But just like any other tile you just cut them how you need to make them fit your job

        by|Feb 10, 2021

          A:  Hi! Yes, our Faenza Azul can be cut to suit any installation preferences. We recommend using a wet saw with a diamond tipped blade as it offers the best cut with the least chance of breakage. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

            A:  With a wet saw, yes, but they don't snap apart.

              A:  It appears to be 9 small tiles but it is actually one large tile, so no they do not separate. You could easily score them with a tile saw if you wanted though.

                  High quality and good design
                  I can't speak to the durability yet, but the tiles feel and cut good. It's a heavier ceramic. Installation requires thought. I would suggest laying it out before mixing your mortar to ensure you don't have any adjacent repeating patterns.

                    Everything about these tiles were great: - Had it shipped to my house as the case is heavy to handle. They delivered on time and none were broken. - Over ordered 1 case, but return was easy. - First timer doing anything tile related, but the cutting was easy. I really liked how the 1 tile was divided into 9 squares - it made cutting and laying out much easier. I was able to lay all the tile for the backsplash and fireplace surround in one weekend. - The grout was the only thing that I found difficult, but that was because I got sanded grout. Should have used unsanded because the space between the tiles is small. - Just overall a great look and I get compliments all the time. Highly recommend

                      Backsplash for our kitchen- quite impressed
                      I didn’t want this tile to look like 6x6 sheets side by side. I wanted it to look like separate little squares. My tiler installed the sheets very tight and close and grouted everything a pecan colour grout (the pic is before grout) but even before looked phenomenal. Exactly the look we were going for with this European feel kitchen. Very happy with the product.

                      This tile is so beautiful!!! I was hesitant because of the price and having to buy a full case but I am so glad I did! My only reason for 4 stars is that they could do a better job packaging it...we had a few that were broke. (gratefully, they did replace them) There is padding around the sides and top but nothing on the bottom or in between the tiles. We used these to do an accent wall in the kitchen but I can imagine how gorgeous they'd be on a floor! Anyhoo, I'm super happy with it!

                        We love this tile as our kitchen backsplash. We wanted something that would be cheerful but still neutral enough to blend in. My husband installed it, and it was much quicker with 9 squares in 1 actual tile. They feel pretty heavy and didn't chip at all when we were handling them. The 9 squares have space for grout so the reddish color you see in the online pictures disappears and blends smoothly with the separate big tiles. The fake aging marks, which I wasn't a huge fan of when closely looking at the tile from the box without grout, blends in nicely once it's up on the wall, grouted, and with other tile. The fake aging is a pastel-tan color and is on the edges of each of the 9 squares. We were originally going to use a white grout, but we did a practice run on an extra tile not on the wall and white made the tile look dark/dirty. The tiles look blue and white in person, but really the white is a light gray so we ended up using a light gray grout (Silverado, I believe). We would recommend these tiles!
