Product Overview

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 9 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.

LOVE IT!
I have been wanting this tile for along time and finally did a refresh of my bathroom. I replaced plain white tiles with this and a new blue vanity. It is exactly what I wanted. This was in a small master bath. It was quite a challenge to lay out the tiles so you didn't have repeating patterns and it was impossible to have no repeats but my contractor did a really good job. He used a medium gray grout which complements the tile color. I love the worn edges and imperfections of the pattern. I couldn't be happier!

    I love these tiles and am very pleased with the quality of them. I laid them on the floor outside as you enter my front door, used them as my kitchen backsplash then as the floor tiles in my bathroom. They work beautifully in each location. They were easy to use.

    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

        A beautiful rustic floor and wall tile set. Dimensions are 13" x 13" per slab piece. 10 pieces in each box. I currently placed this ceramic tile in our kitchen lower sink area. It keeps the bottom of the sink area easy to clean with a rustic look. We really enjoy the ease of install and how much each slab covers. The convenience of each slab has a consistency of 9 square grout tiles. Certainly a time saver having to deal with a tile at a time instead this pack really is a quick setter. I'm a major fan and like the white tile and a red grout worn out looking tile. I used a thinset mortar, hardiebacker and used a 6" X2" trowel and worked out perfectly.

        These beautiful floor and wall tiles make it possible to have the individual small tile look while having the convenience of a 13x13 slab. The scored grout lines in the slab can either be grouted or left as is. The tiles have a matte like finish with a reddish accent in the scored lines giving them a shabby chic vibe. Pictures really don't do them justice. They have a warmth that is very attractive and appealing. Nice product !

        I installed this Merola tile as an option to give our kitchen a different kinda look. This tile is designed to give an antique rustic look and it did not disappoint. The charm of these tiles are inspired to draw your thoughts to the streets in Spain. The 13" x 13" makes for an easier installation. Once installed the tile is easy to maintain. If you are looking for more of an aged look then this is some great tile.

        This is a very interesting tile. It is a 13"13 inch tile that look like they are 9 tile 4" square subway tiles. If you are doing a larger area, having this larger tile will make the install much faster. If you are doing a smaller area, there is a risk that the larger tiles might need to be cut, but in that case the smaller 4" would need to be cut also, so it is still easier to install this tile. Another big savings is the grouting, no need to grout as must with these larger tiles. The color of the grout within the tile is a reddish brown color, so your grout between tiles should match that color. These tiles have a retro look, the grout color looks like it bleed over onto the tile. This gives the effect that the tiles have been installed for decades. I would certainly recommend these tiles for a retro project.
