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.

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.

            My wife and I are remodeling a small bathroom to a mid 20th century style (specifically 1940's). This Metro Hex tile fits the time period perfectly with an updated modern color. It has a very nice matted finish that's not to glossy but not to muted as well. These tiles are very good quality for the price. I used about seven boxes to finish my floors and out of the seven boxes, I only found three individual tiles that had a chip or defect in them. I just used those mats for my corner or edge pieces where I new I could leave those tiles out. Installation was a learning process. I found it hard to get the gaping between each of the full mats perfect. When I would lay a full 5x6 tile mat on the the thin-set, the spacing between the tiles had a tendency to move towards the center of the mat. To compensate for this, I ended up cutting each mat into two 2x6 tile sheets and one 1x6 tile sheet so that I could better control the spacing between each sheet. It took a lot longer, but the results were amazing. We grouted with the SimpleGrout #165 Delorean Gray 1 Gal. Pre-Mixed Grout. I would recommend using a sanded grout and not a premix grout unless you're a professional. There are a lot of grout lines that you need to get with this tile and you want something that will not dry on you that fast. Overall the this product more than meet my wife and I's expectations. The installation is challenging, but the results are well worth the effort if you're willing to put in the extra time to make sure that it comes out correct.

            This tile looks nice on our bathroom floor. We're happy with it. The contractors found it somewhat time-consuming to install. Unfortunately Merola doesn't make matching baseboard tile, but they make some that's close enough to look good with this.

              Great tile, very hard install
              I had 8 boxes without a single problem tile. As with all mesh backed mosaics, spacing not perfect. This was my first tile project ever, and it was HARD. I don't have particularly good skill with spatial relations, though, and also got a lot of thinset smooshing up. Love the 2" look

                Great looking tile
                This tile is beautiful and comes in sheets to make installation easier. Installation, however, isn't easy considering you have to cut each inner tile to fit against the wall and cabinets (vs. a 12x12 tile with one cut.)

                  Pros: decent quality tile with very few breakage issues. Cons: the mesh was a nightmare. It seemed like a good product until it stretched out while laying. We managed to finish with a decent floor but it was extremely time consuming.

                  A nice, basic white hex tile. Classic. This tile seems/feels higher-quality than anything we saw in our local Home Depot store or competing stores. It's not a bright white, but it is a true white. Not a cream or off-white. Easy enough for beginners like us to lay, we made sure we had extra - that helped. Maybe one tile on one or two sheets had a small chip on a corner (out of 40 sheets), otherwise every sheet was usable. I'm not sure that any of the flaws I found were due to shipping, because each sheet is individually wrapped in a plastic wrapper with its own cardboard backer, then placed in a box that's bubble wrapped and placed in another box. If you are conscious about packaging waste, take note. I attempted to recycle as much as I could. Due to the pandemic, we didn't shop around that much, but I was able to order a sample from HD. This worked out well. We were able to see the tile, feel it, and not make a decision off a computer screen. It helped that we had the time to wait for samples to arrive to make a decision.

                  Hi! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We do want to clarify for you and future customers that our Metro Hex 2in. Matte White is perfectly suitable for shower floor installations as it is ADA compliant for slip resistance, and has a glazed finish that will not absorb water. The grout lines will also help contribute to overall slip resistance. We suggest exposing any tile to water prior to a shower floor installation to determine if it meets your own preferences.

                    Tile weren’t adheres to backing, backing too thick for thin set
                    Pretty tiles for the price, consistent color and finish. Bought 6 boxes and only had a couple chipped tiles. I feel like the tile mesh backing is too heavy, had 4-5 tiles I had to re-install because they came off backing after thin set dried (used 3/8”). In a 6x10 space I had to hand install about 20 tiles because they came off backing as I pulled them out of box maybe I just had a bad run, but my experience with mosaic DalTile provided for easier application.
