            Upscale look
            These are high end look tiles. The hex shapes have a lot of detail in each tile. There is a darker border that fades into a lighter glass look. The brown tones seem to complement the beige tiles that they will be next to in my project. The backing of the tiles is solid for easy spacing (none are loose in my order). The tile color makes me want want coffee with 2 creamers - it is the same color.

            The amazing versatility of Merola Tile Hudson Hex 1” Caffe 11-7/8” x 13-1/4” Porcelain Mosaic
            Merola Tile Hudson Hex 1” Caffe 11-7/8” x 13-1/4” Porcelain Mosaic The reflective glaze with their eye-drop effect is the tile’s feature we like the most and the primary reason for selecting this tile color and design. Its potential application in our old 1950’s country kitchen is almost endless because it was found to simply enhance every surface we considered covering with this beautiful and most versatile tile. Our immediate application considered was using it to cover our existing countertop (see 1st photo). But later when I noticed one of the kitchen cabinets open, it seemed a natural to try it as a back wall covering. And yes, this proved (see 2nd photo) to be just as eye catching and attractive as its counter top application. We then considered it as the primary floor covering over the old brown, rather drab tile floor. And again, the effect was strikingly beautiful (see 3rd photo). And a bit by accident, I laid the tile square over the adjacent register cover (see 4th photo) as I got up from the floor, and behold, another application evolved. The morning sun that shines through this window made this tile just “glow.” So, it also seemed a natural to try it as the old kitchen table covering (see 5th photo), and again another not so obvious use of this versatile ceramic tile presented itself.

            Hexagonal shiny off white and light brown sheets of tile.
            When I was a kid, my dad installed tile on the floor of our bathrooms. He used a tile that was attached to a mesh backing - this kept the spacing consistent. I have no idea how one would install the tile if there was no mesh backing. Each tile is a hexagonal shape with a white/tan finish. The finish is beautiful with a lot of shine - you can see it in my picture. The tiles are glued to a mesh backing, which aids in the installation and it looks fantastic when done. Why do I like mesh backing on small tiles? It's very difficult to make sure the tiles are the same depth and are spaced equally apart. A couple tips on how to install these tiles. Don't back butter the tiles. In fact, don't put too much thinset on the ground or wall. If the thinset gets between tiles, it'll be very difficult to remove when the thinset dries. Also, to keep the depth consistent, I run a 2X4 across the surface to see if the tiles are the same depth. Even with the mesh backing, the tiles can still had different depths - this is very bad, since the tiles will be pulled closer when this occurs. The tiles look great! The finish is warm and shiny! The slight variation in color gives the tiles a high end look. I really like these tiles. I highly recommend them to anyone remodeling a floor, wall, shower floor or as a backsplash.

            This tile is a nice quality tile that is a basic neutral color that will go well with many types and colors of decor.
            Nice quality tile that is a neutral color and will go well with differnt types of decor and color palates.The tile is composed of many small pieces so that it can be used in a variety of different size spaces. The picture of the tile however does make it appear that the tile is connected and could be only one piece of tile.The tile has a nice sheen to it and will work well in many baths and kitchens as well.

            Looks great
            The actual tile looks a tiny bit darker than the image online, and there seems to be a little less tan undertone on the “tanner” pieces. This is perfect as I was worried about the brown. Used as a shower floor and it looks great paired with platinum grout and larger subway tiles. We had someone install it for us and didn’t hear any concerns with it. I bought 3 boxes to coverage breakage and we only ended up using 2.

              Attractive mosaic tiles
              Merola tile is a name I trust. As a whole, these tiles live up to their brand name. Nice thickness with an attractive design. Each of the mosaics have a cafe latte color to them, with a dark outline to bring out the color. The sheet has a mesh backing for installation. The only thing stopping me from giving it a five star rating is that a few of the mosaics have some mesh backing remnants. Only a few in the whole box, so nothing to stop you from buying them.

              Hexagonal Penny tiles
              These hexagonal tiles will be used to make pot and pan trivets that will go next to the stove and on the dining room table. Tiles are approximately 1/8" in thickness and have a 3/16" grouting space between the tile. Tiles are well attached to the standard webbed backing that will grout to easily flow through the tiles. Each tile has a stunning high gloss glaze. Hopefully my pictures illustrate how each tile is slightly different to give an amazing and unique finished product.

              Great color, size and finish
              This review is for the Merola Tile Hudson 1 in. Hex Caffe 11-7/8 in. x 13-1/4 in. Porcelain Mosaic Tile (11.2 sq. ft./Case). As I’ve mentioned before I do like the quality and different styles of tile available from Merola. I’ve always been a fan of what I call “penny” tile (in this case the shape is a hexagon and more of a quarter size), even though it can be a bit trickier to install and grouting is more tedious as with any small mosaic type tile. I like it for accent areas; especially inset shelves in a shower installation. The variation in color is very nice and the finish is glossy.

                Beautiful Mosaic Style
                This Merola Tile Hudson 1" hexagonal tile in Atlantis color pattern is really striking and pretty. It's rated for floor and wall use and has a mesh back to hold the roughly 12"x13" sheet together for easy handling and placement. I like to use tile as a tabletop for small side tables and this sizing will be perfect for that. The color variation is reminiscent of nautical themes, with light blues and greens ranging to darker blues and greens. This is a winner if you're looking for subtle variations of blue/green color palette.
