Is this tile suitable for installation as a bathroom floor over an electric floor heat mat?

Asked by JM March 25, 2019

Answers

This was very simple. First go to Home Depot make sure you have all the correct grout, your HD rep can help, make sure the correct tools, the proper amount of ice for cold beverages, and plenty of snacks an sandwiches etc. Have family, friends, and especially pets and toddlers out of the house. Start early and it is important to make sure that the installer you have hired knows what he or (in my case) she knows what they are doing. So you can pull up a comfy chair, the cold beverage, sandwiches, and watch carefully as they overcome the issue like the one you are having. So my advice, At the cost of this material, plus grout and tooling, hire a professional as I did. There are no “re-dos”, are forgiveness when putting this down improperly. I have paid the price and I know the cost of not knowing what I am doing .

Hi teamsiouris, Looking at the 5th image for our Gotham Hex Black, the grout color used was #60 Charcoal from Custom Building Products. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials. If you would like to see this in person, Home Depot stores offer dried grout samples in the flooring department. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by MJ May 31, 2018
1
Answer

Hi MJ, Our Gotham Hex Black and are Caprice Tweed are not from the same series and are not meant to coordinate with one another. This does not mean that they cannot be used together, just that they are not intended to. Please note that our Caprice Tweed is a glazed porcelain field file, while our Gotham Hex Black is an unglazed porcelain mosaic. They do not have the same technical data and the Caprice Tweed cannot be used in some of the applications that Gotham Hex Black can be used in. In situations like this, we would recommend ordering samples to see if they would work with your application. Please reach out to our Customer Service department at (800)-963-7652 and we’ll walk you through the process of ordering samples. Please be aware that samples come adhered to 6”x6” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering one case of each. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by OkieFarmer February 19, 2018

Answer

Hi Kate, Yes, the dimensions of 10.25”x12” for our Gotham Hex Antique White are accurate. The Gotham Hex Antique White is intended to coordinate with other mosaics from the Gotham Hex series. If the Gotham Hex series is being used with another one of our hexagon mosaics, they might not match up properly. This is due to multiple series not intending to coordinate with each other. Factors such as chip dimensions will prevent two different hexagon series from being used with one another. If your plan is to coordinate our Gotham Hex with another mosaic, we would recommend looking at the rest of our Gotham Hex series https://thd.co/2omd3xV. Please keep in mind that although they would be from the same series, they would not come from the same dye lot. As a result of that, the colors might not match up perfectly. We would recommend purchasing a single piece, or case, to see if it suits your needs. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Perfect accent for a subway tile shower. We installed this tile in our shower niche, along with the Merola hex floor tile and the two work perfectly together. The shape and color is a great compliment to white subway tiles and, together, you have a timeless look with some charm and character. Comes in sheets so it's easy to install and grout. The unglazed, textured finish on the tile is nice. Only complaint I have is that you have to buy a case, when you may only need 1-2 sheets. We were able to return the unused to Home Depot, however, for store credit.

Created the borders and patterns I needed
I spent a huge amount of time trying to find the right tile and design with a supplier/installer, until I found this was exactly what I had been looking for to accomplish the classic look I wanted with specific patterns and borders. So I decided to do it myself!Put in three entries into my home. Great quality, and beautiful matte, non slip, antique colors which fit perfectly into my colonial home. planning on using for bathrooms in the future!

Hi! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We do want to clarify for you and future customers that our Gotham Hex Black does not have a true black color tone and we include a color scale in the product images to reflect that. We encourage customers to order a single sheet as a sample to determine if this product suits their design preferences. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.
