Q:Is it slippery for shower floor
by|Feb 16, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Donna! Once a mosaic is grouted it creates a non-slip finish due to the nature of the grout. We are not licensed installers so we always encourage you to consult your contractor prior to installation. All our tiles are available as samples on HomeDepot.com if you would like to preview the product. Thanks so much for your question and feel free to reach us at 800-963-7652. -AnnT

          Ordered white tile - color was uniform throughout 4 boxes. Gorgeous tile! My installer painted a rubber like membrane to strengthen the mesh.

          Looks great, but some are different colors
          Overall it is okay. We took the time look through the tiles and noticed some were very different. We chose the ones that were the same, or so we thought. Unfortunately after the grout was applied we can see color differences. 😕 I wish they all matched. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars.

            Very thin glaze
            I’m disappointed with my purchase! Spent a ton of time researching the right floor tile. The tiles were, for the most part, set properly on the mesh, which was a big deal… but, for what I payed, the glaze is so thin on the tile, along with the grey porcelain that is the base….it doesn’t appear bright white!! Doesn’t match my white subway tile that was super cheap ( that I actually like it better)!! Try and purchase a large sample and test it in your room before buying!!

            Hi! Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. We do want to clarify for you and future customers that the glaze is applied to extend far enough that any of the body along the side should not be visible once the tiles are properly grouted and installed. Feel free to contact us at 800-963-7652 and we will be happy to assist you! We stand behind the quality of our products and appreciate your feedback!
              Beautiful Tile
              We used this for our walk in shower floor, easy install and one of the only true black colored hex tiles we could find.

                Beautiful Glossy Shiny White
                Remodel of bathroom in 100 year old house and wanting to update while retain a retro look in a way. I chose to pair this glossy, shiny white hex tile with the same brand of tile in marine color and blended the two to make an updated and interesting look which I love. The sheets were easy to install and Mapei grout was used in Silver color and I just love the result. Used a bullnose schluter end piece to finish the wall edges and will pair with oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

                  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.
