Asked by Dee August 7, 2020

Hi! Though our Metro 2 in. Matte Black and our Stella Nero tile has a similar black color tone, it is important to note that these products are produced by different factories and may not match perfectly. We recommend purchasing sample of each to determine if they suit your design preferences. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Answer

Hi, Ty! To install this mosaic, you could use most thinsets. Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials, and their FlexBond http://thd.co/1rETEZn and VersaBond http://thd.co/29Po1DR are great options. Be sure to follow all directions on the packaging perfectly for the best results. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by JS January 15, 2019

Answers

I do not know what the rating is but I used this as my shower floor over a year ago and have not had a problem. Since the tiles are so small you have a ton of grout lines which also add friction.

Can the glossy black tile work for a bathroom floor?

Asked by lalaVan January 3, 2019
1
Answer

Hi lalaVan, Our Metro Hex 2” Glossy Black can be used on a bathroom floor, but keep in mind that this does not have a high slip resistance rating and does not meet the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Guidelines for slip resistance. If there are small children or elderly adults using this bathroom, you might want to choose a tile that has a higher slip resistance. The grout joints that are present can also offer some additional slip resistance. If this is an area of concern for you, we carry a matte version; our Metro Hex 2” Matte Black https://thd.co/2CKM1X8. This matte mosaic offers a C.O.F. (Coefficient of Friction) rating between 0.6 and 0.79. When the C.O.F. rating is higher, it means that it’s more slip resistant. Receiving this C.O.F. rating also makes compliant with the ADA Guidelines! If you would like to determine if either of these tiles are right for you, we offer samples! Please be aware that samples come adhered to 6”x6” sample cards which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering one case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Can the glossy Black tile be used on a shower floor?

Asked by cs January 9, 2018
1
Answer

Hi scb3, Yes, our Metro Hex 2” Glossy Black can be used on a shower floor! This mosaic is made of porcelain, which absorbs very little water. The grout joints between each chip will also provide some added slip resistance. If you would like a more slip-resistant version of this product, might I recommend the Metro Hex 2” Matte Black https://thd.co/2CKM1X8. This is the same mosaic you’re looking at, just with a matte finish. The Metro Hex 2” Matte Black offers a C.O.F. (Coefficient of Friction) rating between 0.6 and 0.79. When the C.O.F. rating is higher, it means that it’s more slip resistant. Receiving this C.O.F. rating also makes compliant with the ADA Guidelines! If you would like to determine if this tile is right for you, we offer samples at The Home Depot! The Metro Hex 2” Matte Black comes on a 3”x4” sample card which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole tile https://thd.co/2CVnuBR. To be able to see the whole tile, we recommend ordering a case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, a case). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

I had an absolute horrible experience with this tile. For a tile of this price, color consistency should be much better since you can't really mix up these small pieces up like you can larger tiles. I used it to fix and aging shower tile floor. But after it was all installed and grouted, I noticed some sections where lighter than others! Apparently I got some older stock mixed with newer stock. I can sum this up as a rookie mistake on my part since you have to be careful with tile, but this is expensive stuff and should have better color quality/consistency. I ended up pulling up sections and replacing them, but it didn't help the color differences in the stock. So all the work I put into this floor and it looks like junk.

Beautiful tile! I was looking for a unique, simple, modern white backsplash for my kitchen update and didn't want the standard subway tile. I'm so happy with the way the 2" hexagon turned out and I love the high gloss. Although it's not a true white, it has a bit of a gray cast during different times of the day depending on the light. It was even more noticeable once the pure white grout was added but it still looks great with the new arctic white quartz countertops.

I wanted a retro-style kitchen countertop for my 1925 Craftsman. I found a prototype online that someone else with a vintage house had created. I loved it and copied it. The original artisan used 2-1/2" hex tiles to create a custom pattern in white with black accents, and so did I. The REAL challenge was searching for some retailer who still had V-Cap edger tile available (no longer sold at Home Depot). My way of hacking the grout-getting-dirty issue was to cover the tile with sheets of clear acrylic, held down by clear Gorilla Tape. My one complaint: why is there an apx $30 difference between a box of the glazed black and the glazed white of the same material? And why can't these be sold in individual sheets so that homeowners don't end up with leftovers.

The tiles look great. Definitely a little harder to cut and install just due to the size/shape of the tiles vs. a solid tile. It gave the look we wanted. You can tell that the bath has been renovated but it still has a very classic style.

Easy to Install, great product.
Product exceeded expectations, was easy to install. I watched a video where you need to make sure between the tile sheets that you have the correct amount of spacing so you don't see a thicker seam. That was easily accomplished with 1/8" spacers. Towards the end of the room, (my fault), the tile did skew a little but it was easily corrected by peeling off the individual tiles and setting the last few in by hand, like a puzzle piece. I was back and forth on the matte vs the glossy tile as my house was built in 1875 and wanted to be historically correct but....the glossy will do better in the laundry area. Enclosed pics of floor, gray grout was drying as that's why there is a bit color variation. I assure you, there are no seams and am very happy with it. As for the edging, the tiles are easily cut on a wet saw. Baseboard will fill in the rest of gap.
