Is the white on this tile through body?(color bodied)

Asked by MWilliams February 23, 2015
2
Answers

Good Morning, Our Metro Hex Glossy White is a glazed white body ceramic tile. What this means is that while the color of the tile is white if the tile is chipped or scratched the exposed body will not match the glazing of the surface like a color bodied tile. Even with color bodied tiles scratches and chips still have a tendency to be noticeable due to a higher accumulation of dirt in the chipped area. We do offer a color bodied version of a 1 inch hex in a bone color called Gotham Hex Antique White Item# 204600989. If you paste the link below into your browser it will take you directly to the product page. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Merola-Tile-Gotham-Hex-Antique-White-10-1-4-in-x-12-in-x-5-mm-Porcelain-Unglazed-Floor-and-Wall-Tile-8-54-sq-ft-case-FXLGHWT/204600989 Also feel free to contact our Customer Service department at 800-963-7652 with any other questions you may have concerning our products.

Could this tile be used as a kitchen backsplash, specifically over a stove/cooking area?

Asked by Kat March 24, 2016
2
Answers

Hi Kat, This tile would be great as a backsplash! You do not have to be concerned about the indirect heat from a stovetop. When these tiles are made, they are baked at extremely high temperatures. These tiles are glazed, so water will not absorb into the glaze. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is this tile suitable to place under a claw-foot tub?

Asked by carolj November 3, 2012
2
Answers

Hi Carol, I see that your question has already been addressed but I wanted to specifically mention that the grade you mention in your question (Grade 1) does not refer to the durability of the tile, but rather the quality. And actually, Grade 1 is the top quality, as compared to Grade 2 and 3, often referred to as 'seconds' or 'second quality'. Hope that helps for the future!

Each box cover approx. 9 sq ft so you would need about 7 boxes. It's always good to have some left over in case you need to repair some areas.

Hi- would the Merola Tile Metro Hex Glossy Black tiles work on a bathroom shower floor and on the shower wall?

Asked by Sharon December 28, 2012
1
Answer

Hi Sharon, These tiles would work just fine for your shower wall and floor, though you may want to be aware of the fact that glossy tiles are more slippery than matte or satin-finished tiles when they are wet. We do offer this same tile in a matte glaze, which has more slip resistance. I've linked it below if you're interested. Both are rated with very low water absorption, which is ideal for a shower. As for trim tiles, we offer a glossy black bullnose tile to help you finish your job , which I've also linked below. Hope that helps!

Answer

Hi Briana, We sell samples on our website, MerolaTile.com, but they are not full sheets, they are 4"x4" swatches. If you'd like to order samples that way, you can visit the site and search by model number (FXLMHW) to find the product and order samples. Other than that, this product is only sold by the case. Thanks for your interest in our products!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.
