Old-world European elegance radiates from the Merola Tile Kings Star Nero Encaustic 17-5/8 in. x 17-5/8 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile imported from Spain. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have four 8-3/4 in. squares separated by scored grout lines. The defining feature of this encaustic-inspired tile is the unique, low-sheen glaze in beige tones with centered black stars in each square. Variation throughout each tile mimics an authentic aged appearance. 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 your interior. There are 9 different variations available that are randomly scattered throughout each case. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice or left un-grouted for a rugged finish.

Hi! Our Kings Star Nero is scored with 1/8” lines. We recommend using at least a 3/16” grout line to accommodate any variation in size or the subsurface and to allow for movement. As for grout color, we recommend Custom Building Products grout color #60 Charcoal.

Asked by KBA August 29, 2020

Answer

Hi! Our Harmonia Kings Star Night is a smaller alternate to our Kings Star Night, featuring the same patterns and colors. The difference between the two products is that our Harmonia Kings Star Night has 9 squares separated by scored grout lines which offers the look of a 4” patterned mosaic with the easy installation of a single 13-inch tile. Our Kings Star Night features the same pattern with the look of four individual 9-inch tiles as a single 18-inch format. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

STUNNING TILES!
These tiles are absolutely gorgeous and make a huge statement in a room! Used them for a smaller main floor bath and they have gotten so many compliments. Install was easy and the tiles cut well. I’ve received so many compliments on these and just love them. The vintage and almost used vibes that they give off are just what I wanted. Very eclectic tiles. A bonus that they hide debris easily! Don’t mind the missing trim, we are still putting the bathroom back together but I wanted to write a raving review ASAP! I would highly recommend these they are the perfect addition to my mid century modern home.

Absolutely love this tile. We used it in our entryway and I could not be more pleased. We did end up using bright white grout which in my opinion really makes the tile pop! We used non-sanded grout because the actual tile itself has embedded grout lines which we had to fill in as well. So pretty!

We absolutely love this time. It's heavy, so the most difficult thing for me was moving it from my trunk to the floor. I laid this by myself and other than the weight it was easy to put cut and put down. I installed the tile in February, so we've had several months of use. It's great for the laundry room because it's not slippery at all. It is beautiful and looks amazing with the cabinets and appliances in the room. I'd highly recommend this tile. I love it so much I'll likely be using something by the same company in my bathroom, a rear entryway, and my kitchen backsplash.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Another super pretty tile by Merola this is "King's Star Blue Encaustic. These are BIG tiles and very attractive. Given an "aged" look to perfection. Really nice color combination as well. These tiles are also incised with sort of a "grout line". This makes for a great cutting guide should you need to adjust for fit. Just keep in mind that these faux grout lines are sort of a tera cota color, so choose your grout colors accordingly. This pretty tile would. I think look well in almost any decor. Overall. it's a yes from me.
