About This Product

Capturing the appearance of a marble look, our Merzoni Checker Ruzzini Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile features a slightly textured, satin finish, providing decorative appeal that adapts to a variety of stylistic contexts.

Containing 10 different print variations that are randomly distributed throughout each case, this white square tile offers a one-of-a-kind look. With its impervious, frost-resistant features, this tile is an ideal selection for both indoor and outdoor residential installations, including kitchens, bathrooms, backsplashes, showers, hallways and fireplace facades. This tile is a perfect choice on its own or paired with other products in the Merzoni Collection. Tile is the better choice for your space.

    Q:I’m not seeing “bathroom” listed as one of the suggested uses. We’d like to use this on a rental property kitchen floor and continue it thru onto the floor of the only bathroom. Would this be a good choice for a bathroom getting a good amount of use??

            Sharp tile!
            These are beautiful 18”x18” ceramic tiles. The symmetric pattern is classic and stylish. They come 5 ea per box. Tile is scored into 4 quadrants with shallow U-bottom grooves. Color is an off white with the black design. Finish is flat or porous so a sealant might be in order for horizontal applications. Thinking of using these for the surface a side/sofa table for our great room. Given tile size probably recommend a 1/4” grout line. Very classy.

            A heavy duty tile.
            This tile has a very different design. It looks like good design with scratches in it. I guess that is what they call a modern design. It is well made at about 10 pounds a piece and 17 7/8 inch x 17 7/8 inch and about 5/8 inch thick. It's thickness and weight and rough backing makes it easy to lay and set and wear for a long time. The best part is that it is very easy to clean. I think this tile will look great in about any room in the house.

            Very nice
            Installed in our smaller bathroom, looks great, these tiles are giant so the installation didn’t take as long. The tiles are super heavy as a result. Careful not to chip the image but otherwise good and good quality porcelain. HOWEVER IF YOU USE HOMEDEPOT PREMIXED GROUT IN BLACK…. It stains so much!!!!!! It took me hours to remove the stains. Goo gone and alcohol with a drill brush attachment finally got it off..

                I am using these tiles in a Bathroom and wanted that old style look with a modern large size tile. These tiles have the look of 4 one foot tiles in a single tile. Each tile has 2 black and 2 white colored spaces arranged in a checkerboard pattern. Each tile weighs in at a whopping 9 pounds 13 ounces and is exactly .39 inches thick or between 3/8 & 7/16 inches thick. They are very well made High Quality tiles made in Spain as you can see in the pictures of the backside. Once laid you can either leave the pre-cut grout lines in the middle of the tile clear or just install the rest of it with whatever color grout you decide to use. If you grout the existing cut lines you will want to make sure you match the grout widths for an even look. Either way it will look wonderful. They give you the look of black and white Marble in a single ceramic tile. And since it is Ceramic it will be much more durable. It's a little bit more difficult to handle them with the extra weight but the end result by far exceeds the added work.

                I have always admired the look of black and white tile in the grand entrances of estates, and now this tile allowed me to create this look in my home. We used the tiles in the entrance of our home and the effect is just as grand. The tiles are very substantial and the laying of it was done in no time at all, since the tiles are so large. The finish is very nice has an understated sheen to it. I am so happy with this selection!

                The MEROLA TILE RUZZINI 17-7/8 IN. X 17-7/8 IN. PORCELAIN FLOOR AND WALL TILE (11.33 SQ. FT. / CASE), BLACK AND WHITE / MEDIUM SHEEN has a very good quality finish. The tiles are very heavy and must be handled with care. The pattern is easy to follow and can be random selected. The large size of the tile makes covering an area very quick. Frequent waxing or polishing is not necessary with the medium sheen finish.

                These are heavy gage floor tiles that are thick and should give years of use even in a high traffic area. Since they don't have a high gloss surface they are relatively slip resistant. The black and white pattern is reminiscent to styles of the 50's and 80's. These are great for remodeling to a retro look or a modern 2000 simplistic urban style. This is a great improvement over peel and stick tiles.
