Maddening process if you're a perfectionist - but a nice product overall
This tile is very nice quality, love the color and finish. Also, hex tile is a classic that always looks nice. We only had a few chipped tiles, definitely order 10% more sq. footage than you'll need at minimum. Actually getting these tiles to be spaced perfectly is very difficult. Not impossible, but hard for sure. This was my second time tiling, so I'm no expert. My main qualm is that you can't really use a wet saw to cut these tiles since the backing of the tile (the mesh that holds them the correct spacing apart) falls off when the tiles get wet.

Response from MerolaTile Customer CareAug 27, 2020
Hi! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are sorry to hear about your experience with our tile. We take great care to ensure our products arrive in perfect, brand-new condition. Despite our thorough packaging processes, we are unable to oversee handling of your material once it is in transit. As for cutting mosaic tile, we recommend trimming the mesh to fit your space, then removing individual chips from the mesh and making individual cuts using a wet saw with a diamond tipped blade as that will offer the best cut with the least chance of breakage. Cut chips can then easily be set back in place. We stand by the quality of our products and encourage you to contact us at 1-800-963-7652 to discuss any questions or concerns about your order.

Excellent Quality Tile with Solid Mesh Backing
As a DIY homeowner who has never attempted a tile project, I was worried that the tiles would be difficult to work with, but I was extremely impressed by both the quality of the tile and the mesh backing, which is a critical component. I decided to create a pattern using white and grey tiles, which required cutting the mesh backing of the tiles to create smaller strips. I was worried that this might cause the hex tiles to separate from the backing, since the cheaper variety of these tiles tend to have that problem, but I had not a single one fall off. Overall, these are very well made tiles that were also packaged carefully to prevent damage during shipping. I am thrilled with the final product, and I would definitely purchase these tiles again.

Can’t speak to the installation because we got help with that part, but the look is great! We were going for a classic look and saw 2 inch hexagon tiles in an old Victorian home. We chose a white grout to keep with a slightly modern/clean look and it turned out great!

Subway tile is overdone -- set your kitchen apart with a hip hexagonal look. The matte white feels more inviting than an overly vibrant glossy white. Depending on the number of obstructions to work around, this mounts fairly easily (the hex pattern is forgiving in aligning). I'm not sure how you cut these tiles without a diamond saw. We bought one of those score-and-snap tools, but didn't use it. Grout and caulk is easy to remove from the tile. The standard edging felt too glossy, so we went all in and bought the matching pencil tile to go with it. We really like the look, and feel it complements the counter-top without distracting.

This is an excellent tile with a great look when down. We grouted with the Platinum grout and it really set the tile off nicely. Only complaint I would mention is the mesh backing contains a "latex" glue witch is water soluble and keeps the tiles in their pattern. If you don't get it straight and set fairly quickly the tiles release from the mesh making it a bit more difficult to set.
