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.

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.

Questions & Answers

Can this tile be purchased individually or is it only sold by the case?

Can this tile be purchased individually or is it only sold by the case?
Asked by: Boots
It is sold by the case but you can order a sample if you are just considering using it. There are only 5 tiles per box so it's really not a big deal to buy it by the case. You will want to keep a couple of extra tiles on hand anyway in case one breaks down the line.

Would this be appropriate for a kitchen backsplash?

Would this be appropriate for a kitchen backsplash?
Asked by: Tisha
Hi Tisha, Our Kings Star Nero is a great choice for a kitchen backsplash! One thing to be aware of is that each tile weighs 10.32 lbs., so you will need to use an adhesive that is strong enough for a large tile such as this. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials, and their FlexBond http://thd.co/1rETEZn is a great option. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Suitable for shower floor

Hi! I would like to use this tile on a shower floor, but I’m concerned about slipping. Is the tile rough enough to be suitable for a shower floor, and bathroom areas that may get wet?
Asked by: Stephanie
I used it on the wall and it looks wonderful. Didn't use it on the floor.
