Product Overview

Imported from Spain, our Kings Raku Black 15-3/4 in. x 7-7/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile radiates old-world European elegance. This wall tile features a unique, mixed finish glaze in varying tones of faded black. To commemorate 50 years of production, interior architect and furniture designer, Francisco Segarra, designed this collection to pay tribute to the manufacturing facility that brought his ideas to life. Using an age-old pottery technique as his source of inspiration, he created this collection with colors, textures, and crackle-look surfaces that all evoke the beauty of raku pottery. Available in 35 print variations that are randomly scattered throughout each case, the variation throughout each tile mimics an authentic aged appearance. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller brick tiles and instead install these durable large ceramic rectangles, which have 6 smaller brick rectangles squares separated by scored grout lines. Its glazed feature makes this tile an ideal choice for indoor wall installations including, kitchen backsplashes, bathroom showers and fireplace facades. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC.

Answer

Hi! The pre scored grout lines of our Kings Raku Colors can be grouted with any grout color you prefer and will completely cover the natural body of the tile once properly installed. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

What kind of trim could I use?

Asked by Dinah April 9, 2021

Hi! We currently do not offer a trim that directly coordinates with our Kings Raku Colors. In these cases, we recommend using a Schluter Trim. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

We are adding a sink and accent wall in our laundry room. The accent wall is grey wood planks so we wanted something to compliment it in the sink counter and backsplash. Merola Tile Kings Raku Black 15-3/4 in. x 7-7/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile (10.71 sq. ft./Case) was a great choice appearance wise. There are 12 tiles to a case and each tile has 6 individual stamped tiles. No 2 stamped tiles look the same on a single tile board. Very unique look. The groit line groves that are pre cut into the tile can cause them to easily break along this line so move them carefully. Easy to cut with conventional tools. The side edges are unfinished so if you end in the middle of the wall you'll need a molding piece.

MEROLA TILE KINGS RAKU BLACK 15-3/4 IN. X 7-7/8 IN. CERAMIC WALL TILE (10.71 SQ. FT./CASE) Now I know that this is wall tile, but I liked it for retiling our fire place hearth. I wanted something that resembled slate, but didn't want the brittleness of small slate tiles. We're in the middle of laying vinyl plank flooring, but I wanted to fix our hearth issue... install a fire resistant surface below our fireplace opening. Mama likes it, and I like it.

I needed a few tiles to make a backsplash in my guest bathroom and the Merola Tile Kings Raku Black ceramic tile fit the bill. To me, the tile is more greenish than black and has a pleasing array of dark-hued colors. The fact that each tile is segmented into 6 smaller tiles made the scale ideal for smaller areas. The tiles cut easily with a basic tile cutter. I adhered the tiles to the wall using tile mastic I got at Home Depot. The tiles seemed perfectly flat and consistently sized so install was a breeze. The lines between each segment of the tiles easily accepts unsanded grout so you can personalize your installation with a complimentary grout color. Merola has a great selection of tiles in all sizes and types and the Roku Black adds a touch of flair to my guest bathroom.

I would recommend Merola Tile Kings Raku Black Ceramic Wall Tile. Each box has 12 tiles inside that will cover a 10.71 square foot area. Each tile piece is 15 3/4 inch by 7 7/8 inch. Matte Charcoal color with grey and black variations, with a slightly textured surface. They really are impressive right out of the box and on the wall. I installed these behind my oven and they look amazing. Easy to install and lots of directions and videos to follow. Water resistant, these tiles are great for the Kitchen or Bath area.

This tile arrived packaged very well. It is so very gorgeous! The blues and browns in the tile really complement each other and there are a lot of variations. The grout lines in the tiles themselves are very narrow and a very light tan color. Make sure you match this color when you install or the overall appearance of your tile will be odd-looking.

This tile is really pretty. It has a texture to it that I like a lot. Even when wet, it won't be too terribly slippery. The colors and shades are very nice. There is a small grout line that is a very light tan. You'll want to match that for your overall grout or it will definitely look "off" when it is done. The grout lines are also very narrow so installation will need to match as well.

Merola tile king’s raku ivory 15-3/4 in. X 7-7/8 in. Ceramic wall tile and the Merola Tile Kings Raku sage 15-3/4 in. X 7-7/8 in. Ceramic Wall Tile will be combined to create a beautiful back splash in the kitchen. The tiles show six (6) subway tiles per one tile. Although this saves time, installing the tile, grouting was rather difficult to get the spacing accurate, so the grout looks even across the wall. The two tiles will be intermingled to show an accent on the back splash. The tiles haven’t been installed because the new countertop hasn’t been installed yet.

MEROLA TILE KINGS RAKU CREAM 15-3/4 IN. X 7-7/8 IN. CERAMIC WALL TILE (10.71 SQ. FT./CASE), IVORY will be installed in my kitchen. We also have a sage green tile that will be intermingled with this tile. We have not had our new countertops installed yet so these have not been put in the kitchen. My cupboards are painted off white/green and this will be perfect with them.
