Easy tile to work with, very heavy and has a nice sheen to it. It was perfect to use, it's great for both floors and walls. The design is really neat and unique. And it was easy product to work with for the special cuts around the floor. I've used several tile products in the past and this one is no exception, it has a good thickness to it and is very versatile. Overall a great product with no issues.

WOW I have never seen any floor tile made of such great quality, Merola Spanish Retro Blanco will last a lifetime, the last flooring you will ever need. A little shy of 13 inches x 13 inches but the real kicker is the thickness, about the height of a penny, I would say measures at three quarters thick. Description reads can also be used on walls which is difficult to believe due to the size and thickness but Im not a tile installer expert. The back side has a pattern of lines etched out length of the tile which will help the tile adhesive grip the tile securely. The tile is thick enough that the manufacturer has actually engraved style, I believe to be a serial number and made in Spain in large legible numbers and letters. Whether you decide to use as wall or floor tile the area will be stunning! The Spanish Retro Style consists of a variation shades of greens with a subtle sheen. Ceramic tile surface is not soft, smooth or slippery to the touch, a little rough to prevent slipping or sliding if wet or wearing only socks. Each thick ceramic tile appears to be sectioned off into 4 six and a quarter inch squares with the subtle lines. The style and design is absolutely perfect from appearance, make, style to durability, impressive!

received this tile in a short time. The box was damaged but the tile was in good condition. I haven't had a chance to install this tile because I was involved in a car accident and spent two days in the hospital. I am still recovering. I will, however, let you know when I install the tile. Thanks for quick delivery and I will be sending a picture of the damaged box. Thanks again Stoney

The Merola Klinker Retro Blanco Encaustic tile is by far the strongest and thickest premium tile I have ever installed. It has beautiful neutral colors and consistent medium sheen finish. The tile is square and consistent in size and super thick! The downside to thicker / heavier tile is physical ability to lay it down consistently into the thinset. While more expensive than average tile, it is one the nicest looking and highest quality available for DIYer. I highly recommend !

This is a sturdy tile with a color that is very nice and neutral. It is perfect for so many locations, from entry to family room to kitchen or bath. If you like a neutral palette, this tile is for you. And it is easy to install too, the overall dimensions are a little over 12 inches square, so installation is also going very fast. Additionally, this tile does not show dirt very much, so it is handy in the cleaning department also. I am very happy with this selection.

Merola Tile Klinker Retro Blanco Encaustic 12-3/4 in. x 12-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Quarry Tile, Blanco / Medium Sheen This tile will be perfect for our kitchen floor. It has a great old-world worn look to it while maintaining a neutral color pallet. The tile is extremely durable and can be used both inside and outdoors. It is also water resistant and can stand up to heavy duty wear and tear. Great for an active family! We plan on pairing this monotone tile with a smaller, more colorful tile from Merola to be used as a border.

Hi HomeDepotCustomer,

We’re sorry to hear that our Klinker Retro Azul Mix didn’t meet your expectations. We’ve forwarded your feedback to our Marketing team who will take a closer look at our content. If it comes back that we need to update the photo content, we will make the necessary corrections.

We also wanted to mention that the computer monitor can impact the depth of colors that you see. Depending on how the monitor was calibrated, it may portray colors either too warm or too cool in terms of tone.

Thanks for the feedback, and we hope you were able to find a tile that suits your needs!

Hi Caroline,

We’re sorry to hear that our Klinker Retro Azul Mix did not work for your installation. We wanted to clarify a few points for future customers in regards to this tile.

This tile is roughly 1/2” thick; this and other relevant information can be found in the “Product Overview” and the “Specifications” section! This tile also has a glazed finish; this can be found in the “Product Overview” section. The surface of this tile, even though it’s glazed, has a slightly rough texture to it, which can give off the appearance of an unglazed tile.

We hope you were able to find the right tile for your space! Thanks for the feedback.
