Product Overview

Imported from Spain, our Merola Tile Kings Star Encaustic 17-5/8 in. x 17-5/8 in. Sky Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile radiates old-world European elegance. This encaustic-inspired tile features a unique, low-sheen glaze in faded denim blue tones with centered antique white star patterns in each square. Designed by interior architect and furniture designer Francisco Segarra, this tile is a true reflection of vintage industrial design. Realistic imitations of scuffs and spots that are the marks of well-loved, worn, century-old tile bring rustic charm to any interior setting. These rustic scuffs and spots convince that this tile is truly aged. Available in 7 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 square tiles and instead install these durable porcelain slabs, which have four 8-3/4 in. squares separated by scored grout lines. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice, or left ungrouted for a rugged finish. It's durable, ADA-compliant and glazed features make this tile an ideal choice for indoor residential use, including kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms and showers. 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.

Can this tile be installed in an outdoor uncovered patio?

Asked by Maria May 6, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! Our Kings Star Sage is not suitable for outdoor installations as it is not frost proof. If water exposure and cold temperatures are not a factor in your location, then this may not be a concern. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Answers

Hi! For our Kings Star Ara Nero, we recommend Custom Building Products #60 Charcoal grout color. It is important to note that grout color is a personal choice and can greatly impact the overall look of an installation. We also provide a grout color comparison video within the product images! If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Hi! Our Kings Star Night is not suitable for outdoor installations as it is not frost proof. If water exposure and cold temperatures are not a factor in your location, then this may not be a concern. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is there a grout you can recommend to match the terra-cotta red edges?

Asked by Startile March 22, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! The reddish edges of the scored grout lines you are describing should be grouted over with any color of your choice, and once installed the grout will completely cover the natural orange-red body of the tile. If you do wish to maintain the natural look of the tile body, we recommend using Custom Building Products #50 Nutmeg. It is important to note that grout color is a personal choice and can greatly impact the overall look of an installation. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Can this be installed on plywood subfloors, or does durock need to be put down first?

Asked by MandyK March 19, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! While you can install our Kings Star Oxide can be directly installed to plywood, we highly recommend adhering these products to a cement backer board such as HardieBacker Board, http://thd.co/2ayfAPJ. Proper subfloor preparation will ensure the integrity and lifespan of your installation, please consult a licensed contractor if you are uncertain about your specific application. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Andrew March 1, 2021

Answers

I did not use for that specifically and actually installed where I tore out a cast iron gas fireplace. The old tiles were far less substantial than these and held it just fine. These tiles are very heavy duty, so if you set substrate correctly (good plywood and backerboard, leveled, and with good thin set and grout) I don't think it would be an issue. I would not hesitate to use them. I used for office area and holds desks, roller chairs, etc., with no issues.

The Perfect Tile for My Dream Home
We just built our dream home on our farm and this tile was exactly what I wanted to give me the vintage (yet modern) farmhouse look that we wanted. While some questioned my choice and the color, as you can see it turned out beautifully and for us it is perfect! I just wanted to share because there isn't a lot of photos with this color of this tile. Home Depot was also excellent to buy from. One case came in broken and they returned it and ordered us another case with no questions asked. Highly recommend.

I purchased this tile to be installed on my brick fireplace hearth in our renovation of a 1973 ranch. It ultimately made the den come together. It is aged in appearance, but pairs nicely with a newly painted (medium gray) fireplace and new stained mantle. We are in the process of actually trimming it out in matching stained wood around the edges of the tile. It all works so very well. I love it.

These Merola tiles are of great quality. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the pattern/color and ease of installation. The pattern/color is supposed to have sort of an aged look to them but to be honest they look kind of dirty. For me personally, being a clean freak and a bit OCD, that isn't going to work. I will constantly think they need to be cleaned. As to installation. I'm a DIY'er and this was my first time doing tile. It wasn't "hard" but it did take a lot of repositioning and wiping. The grout gets messy. And things have to be placed just so. That being said if you know what you're doing and you find you like the pattern/style- these are very good quality tiles. I think you'll be very happy with them.

This is gorgeous high-quality, high-end tile. Each tile is over 17 inches square and the thickness is almost half an inch. It would work great on a floor but I used it as a feature wall in my bathroom-redo above the vanity. Each case has 5 tiles. Because the tiles are thick and heavy I did one layer at a time, each day, to allow the dried tile beneath to support the tile above and so they all wouldn't slide while setting up. The tiles' grout lines are terracada clay red and my HD doesn't carry that color of grout in store so I will need to special order it. The terracada with the matte-grays is so pretty. At this point, I plan on buying another case to cover the wall to the ceiling. It's design and look is beautiful.
