Questions & Answers


Is the Glossy White / High Sheen tile slippery when wet? I want to use it on the bathroom floor. ...

Asked by Sudi March 25, 2021

Hi! Our Metro 1” Hex Glossy White is suitable for bathroom floor installations as it has a glazed finish that will not absorb water and the grout lines will also contribute to overall slip resistance. We encourage you to order a sample of this product to determine whether it suits your own preferences. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

What is the thickness of this tile?

Asked by Molly March 25, 2021

Hi! Our Metro Hex 1” Glossy Black is 0.22 inches thick. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Do you know the thickness of this tile? Thanks!

Asked by Frank March 2, 2021

Hi! Our Metro Hex Glossy White is 0.22 inches thick. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Will sanded grout scratch this high-gloss tile?

Asked by eedport December 12, 2020

Hi! For our Metro 1” Hex Glossy White, we recommend using unsanded grout. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

What size spacer do I need for these tiles? And what is the best size trowel?

Asked by Kerri August 1, 2020

Hi! For our Metro Hex Glossy White, we recommend using 1/8” spacers to keep consistent with the mosaic chip spacing. As for trowel, we would recommend the use of a 3/16 in. x 5/32 in. V-notch trowel. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products setting materials and their V-notch floor trowel found here, https://thd.co/2SMTz5T may be a suitable choice. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is this ever going to be back in stock?

Asked by Fred October 19, 2019

Hi, Fred! Due to the ongoing trade dispute with China and uncertainty with governmental tariffs on ceramic products from the region, our Metro Hex Glossy Black does not have a definitive replenishment date available at this time. We encourage you to enter your e-mail address on the product page to receive notification when this product is available again. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Casey November 28, 2017

Hi Casey, There are a few coordinating and contrasting trims for this series. Please see the link here: https://www.homedepot.com/s/metro%2520trim%2520tile?NCNI-5 Hope that helps!

Is this tile a true white or is it more creamy off white? I need one that is pure white so I want...

Asked by Jennifer August 8, 2017

bright pure white with high gloss

Where is this made and does it have any prop 65 warnings?

Asked by Andrea March 29, 2017

Hi Andrea, This product is manufactured at a reputable factory in China. There are no Proposition 65 warnings on this, or any of our products. This tile does not contain any lead in the glaze or other harmful contaminants that could be dangerous to your health. When cutting the tile, we always recommend wearing a respiratory mask to prevent inhaling any tile dust. You will want to reach out to the manufacturer of your chosen installation materials (i.e. adhesive and grout) as they could potentially have some harmful materials depending on how these products are made. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

One review (but only one) says this tile is more cream than white. I want it to match white subway tile. Anyone have any comments on this?

Asked by ETS June 28, 2016

Hello There, Being as color and matching products are matters of personal preference it is best for you to see products together and decide how you feel they complement each other. The Metro Hex is white and is intended to coordinate with the entire Metro series. Keep in mind that although the products are intended to coordinate, they are not manufactured at the same time and the color could vary slightly. We would recommend the Metro Soho Glossy White http://thd.co/29hQL9T as a subway to coordinate with the hex mosaic. The Metro series also has a coordinating bullnose http://thd.co/27wNQkO that is a great finishing edge for these products. If you have any further questions or want instructions for ordering samples, call our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Thank you for your interest in our products.

crap tile
This has to be one of the worst tile mosaic ive worked with. Maybe would be ok if you dont have to cut it. If you have to cut it and use a wet saw be prepared to have an absolute mess on your hands. And by all means dont stack them once you get it wet from the saw. The water breaks down the glue mat and leaves everything sticky and milky. Such a mess. And if you try to work woth it while wet the tiles fall off the mat backing. Sorry i ever bought this. Worst tile ive ever used

great quality mosaic
Very pleased with this tile. Well spaced on the background, white is great match to my kohler sink/toilet. Including picture of floor with these glossy white tiles, combined with glossy black, and Arctic White grout.

Hi! We’re so happy to hear that you are pleased with your installation of our Metro Hex glossy White! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear our product hit the mark for you. Your installation looks great!

I installed this black glossy hex tile on the floor of our half bath. Since we wouldn't be stepping on it with wet feet I didn't need to worry about it being slip resistant. I absolutely LOVE the size of the tiles and the way the glossy finish sparkles and reflects the light, especially since it's such a tiny space with no windows. I'm not sure I would use it in an area that gets a lot of traffic though since the tiles are so thin, it seems better suited for a backsplash or accent. So far it has held up very well.

Very happy with appearance and installation
This was my fist mosaic tile job and second tile job ever, my first being square white tiles in the shower from Home Depot. I was so pleased to find out it was much easier than I expected. My more sceptical husband was also impressed with the tile! Love the finish, size of tile and color. Glad I went with the pewter colored grout and bullnose tile for base trim as well also found at Home Depot!

Exactly what I was looking for
Color and glazing was uniform throughout the ten boxes I ordered and not a single tile arrived broken. The tile spacing was also uniform, with only a few tiles being exceptions to the later, but the installer was able to adjust those without too much issue. The tile was installed only a week ago, so it's too soon to say what durability will be.

Super cute "restored" vintage bathroom!
We updated our bathroom in our 1955 home with this tile. Originally we provided the SKU # to our contractor who ordered the tile and I thought we bought the black & white tile, but lo and behold they have the same SKU # so watch out!! We would've had to wait 2 more weeks to get it switched out, so instead we decided to do a very cute black border using 1/2" black liner tile. It looks so cute and actually turned out more interesting and made our bathroom look bigger than if we'd used black and white throughout! Being in a little old house, these bathrooms are tiny! We used a light beige grout with the tile to prevent it from being TOO white but also not grid-like. We are super happy! The contractor installed them so I'm not sure about installation ease.

these tiles make the room complete and authentic!
Our home was built in 1928 so when we began our bathroom updating process we wanted to maintain the integrity of the age but still, wanted it to feel fresh and updated. These tiles fit the bill exactly! They really give the room the "wow" factor. We couldn't be more pleased with our choice of tiles. We have only just completed our bathroom project so we can't speak to durability but our research claims ceramic tiles are quite durable. Fingers crossed!

It's not white!
Very disappointed. Expensive. And it's cream not white. Didn't match same tile I'd purchased a year earlier from Home Depot.

Good choice, easy to install.
I have tiled quite a bit in previous homes, but this was my first time installing a mosaic tile. I was a little nervous but it was very easy to install. Because the baseboard is wider and would be covering the edge pieces, I didn't even have to cut ANY pieces. After I grouted (make sure your thin set is applied very thinly, or else it will rise up between the tiles), there are a few places where the sheets are a little farther apart than I'd like because spacers aren't really an option with this tile, but overall it was easy to set and grout. I used the Delorean Grey grout and the design really stands out. It looks great and I am glad I chose it!

First time installing floor tile and it turned out great
Tiles arrived within a few business days and I set to work with an experienced buddy providing guidance. Once the floor was properly prepped the tile laying & grouting went very smoothly. The tile itself seems to be of excellent quality and we've received several compliments.
