Product Overview

  • Reflects vintage industrial design, perfect for farmhouse motif
  • Scored grout lines can be grouted or left ungrouted
  • Matte glaze offers high resistance to surface abrasion
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. These rustic scuffs and spots convince that this tile is truly aged. 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 ungrouted 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!

What color grout do you recommend using with this tile?

What color grout do you recommend using with this tile?
Asked by: CG
We used a terra cotta color which was the base color and color of the seams. The tile was closely set to match the artificial quadrant seams. It looks really nice.

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.

I picked it for a mudroom, which is perfect because it has a pre-worn dirty look to it. If you are disturbed by gray marks in the photo, take caution.. Because it is a very real aspect of the tile, and I suspect not everyone wants this look. I think its great especially in an area that is going to prone for dirt/mess. It is a very pretty pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Tiles I purchased these tiles and had them professionally installed as a backsplash. We used pecan grout that matched perfectly. All 4 cartons were well packed and in excellent condition. I’ve attached a photo of the finished backsplash. Very happy with the look.

I was worried it would look right because its so distressed but its perfect! But be warned...it does look distressed, it looks old and used, exactly as I wanted it. I used 1/16 spacers and wondered for awhile which size to use but this looks best and matches the faux grout lines perfectly. I decided to used a teracotta grout since the faux grout looks teracotta to me and I dont want the grout lines to be the statement of the floor. ALSO I must add, lay this floor on a diagonal it looks so much better that way. It cuts easily with wet saw.
