Questions & Answers

Can this be used for a backsplash? How difficult do you think it would be to install?

Asked by tw October 12, 2018

Answer

Hi tw, Yes, our Klinker Retro Rojo Aubrieta would be a great choice for a backsplash! Since each tile weighs approximately 7.7 pounds, 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. Since this tile is unglazed, we would recommend sealing the tile before installation and follow up with another coat of sealer every year. The sealer will prevent staining or other forms of wear on the tile. Home Depot always recommends using Custom Building Products installation materials, and their Aqua Mix Sealer’s Choice Gold Penetrating Sealer https://thd.co/2r9ght4 is a great option. We recommend following all of the directions on the packaging for the best results and be sure to test this on scrap prior to sealing the whole installation. We feel that this tile is DIY friendly, and we encourage all new tilers to read installation instructions and check out videos to help familiarize yourself with the process. As long as you follow instructions and have the correct tools, this shouldn’t be too difficult of an installation. If you feel this is beyond what you are able to do, there are lots of options for professionals to assist. Also make sure to read all directions on the installation materials, and reach out to the manufacturers of the installation materials. We recommend that you speak to a licensed contractor about installing this tile prior to taking on this project. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Answer

Hi HH, Our Klinker Retro Blanco Aubrieta is not sold within stores, it’s only available for purchase online or through Special Order. To purchase this online, add the number of pieces you would like to your cart, and complete the checkout process. To place a special order, you can do this anytime by going to your local Home Depot store and placing a special order in the flooring department with a flooring associate. If you have any questions about either process, please contact Home Depot customer care at (800)-466-3337. If you’re looking to get a better idea for the color and texture of the tile, we offer samples can assist with this! Please be aware that samples come adhered to 4.5”x5” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole tile. To be able to see the whole tile, we recommend ordering one case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). Please feel free to contact our Customer Service department at (800)-963-7652 and we can walk you through the process of ordering samples. Hope this helps!

This tile is beautiful!! especially laid in a diamond pattern. After ordering two tiles of Retro Rojo Aubrieta so I could see how they would look in a diamond pattern, I couldn't resist purchasing them for my bathroom flooring. They look very old-world European--excellent purchase!

love this tile! Note that it is thicker than most tiles. We laid it in a concentric diamond pattern (4x4) in an entry and it is amazing!
