Why is the white matte thickness 6mm and the black matte is 5mm? I wanted to make a pattern with black and white but the thickness isn’t the same.
Asked by: Dee
I used black and white and if there is a difference in thickness I couldn't tell. it's nice stuff looks very good and if there is a difference in tile thicknesses you can always push one in a little harder or use more thinset on think ones fyi

Customer Reviews

Metro Hex 2 in. Matte Black 10-1/2 in. x 11 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (8.02 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tiles This is a well made tile that was fairly easy to install. The color goes through the full tile, so even if it was to chip at some time in the future, it would not be very noticeable, unlike many of the cheaper tiles on the market. We ordered the matte finish, and with some light grey sanded grout the finished floor is very beautiful and not at all slippery, even with wet feet. Each sheet of tile was individually packaged with a cardboard backing and plastic wrap, and the full box of individually wrapped tiles was well padded with bubble wrap when shipped. I don't think I could have broken a tile if I had tried!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subway tile is overdone -- set your kitchen apart with a hip hexagonal look. The matte white feel... 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The price was right, the size was right. But contrary to the description, these tiles are not "white". Call them cream, biscuit, bone, linen..... which is how they look in contrast to the white subway tiles used in the bathroom for which I purchased these tiles. The ship to store option was simple enough.... but I wound up returning the entire order because the color was not what i was looking for. Had there been a display of the tile in the store, so I could see the actual tiles I would not have ordered them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marble Look Alike I chose this hexagonal porcelain tile as a substitute for a marble floor I fell in love with. My cleaning lady took one look at my marble choices and I thought she was going to have a heart attack. Needless to say, I believed her when she said ONE DROP of the wrong cleaner would ruin it, so I went on the hunt for a substitute look. This tile is perfect. Traditional look, porcelain ease, and not too slippery for the shower floor. Right price as well. i saved a lot of money with porcelain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, Strong, Safer, and Good Value I can't comment on the installation. However, the result was pretty good - not perfect, requires more skill than if just installing squares. We used pale grey rather than white grouting so it would not show dirt as easily and would contrast with white tiles. We're happy with the end results. We were only able to find this tile style and color in porcelain from Home Depot online. The Home Depot store I looked at only had ceramic, which looks very similar but is not as strong. This tile is not too slippery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had an absolute horrible experience with this tile. For a tile of this price, color consistency... 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bright white I ended up returning these tiles because they weren't as bright white as I had hoped and therefore didn't look right with the subway tiles I had purchased for the walls. But, other than the color, they were some of the nicest quality tiles I've seen in this price range! I'd recommend them if the color isn't an issue for you.
