Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a shower floor?

Asked by: Delcenia
Yes! We used a dark gray grout. I looks amazing.

What is the size of each hex tile and is there a white matte hex tile that matches the black?

Asked by: cheeca
Each tile is 1 inch. Yes, they have matching white. Here is a picture of my new floor with the black tiles, grey grout, and matching white tiles as an accent....I really love it and even thought it is black tile, I think it stays way cleaner than my old tile ever did! :) the picture is showing up sideways, it looks like it is on the wall, but it's actually on the floor.

Has anyone ever used this without a wet saw? I'm wondering if I could leave the ends as they are? Even around an outlet?

Asked by: Sarah
yes, we used the manual tile nippers to cut them in half for the floor /wall interface

Can I just buy one sheet?

I am buying 50 sq ft of matte white but I only want one sheet of the black to scatter sporadically. It is not available in my store so I have to order it online. How do I order just one sheet of the black? Thanks
Asked by: krismk16
You cannot. Buy the case and return the rest to your local Home Depot store.

Metro Hex Matte Black 10-1/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (8.56 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.

This is a gorgeous tile. I've spent quite a bit of time planning the mosaic pattern for our hex tile bathroom and purchased the black and white tile (both featured on the same product page). After laying out the tile on our floor, I realized the inconsistencies between the black and white tiles. The white is 6mm thick and has about 1/16" gap. The black is 5mm thick and has about 1/8" gap. The tiles are also about 1/16" different in size. I had assumed both products on this page would be the same – just different colors. I contacted Home Depot about this and ended up changing our design. Instead of placing multiple black tiles (on the mesh), we removed the mesh and placed each tile individually – adding more adhesive to the bottom to build it up to match the height of the white. Other than the fact that the tiles are not the same (and it caused a lot of frustration over the past several days) they are quite beautiful and I am very happy with how our floor turned out.

I purchased 1box of the black and several boxes of white matte Metro hex tiles to do a mosaic on my bathroom floor. We basically layed out the white tile , then marked the ones to be removed for the replacement with the black ones for the pattern. While it was time consuming, I love just the results! Quality prouduct. Too bad they don't stock this in the stores as I had to purchase the entire box of black even though I only used 2 sheets and I can't return a partial box. Each 10 1/4 x 11 3/4 square is indivually wrapped within the carton and on a backer mesh. There are 10 sheets per carton. I actually needed 2 more sheets of the white, and was able to use the tiles that were removed for the pattern to finish the job and not purchse an entire new carton or have to wait for delivery. Lining up the scrap ,individual titles was painful, but it got the job finished.

So if you were looking to create a pattern with matte white tiles and matte black tiles you are out of luck. The white ones are 6mm and the black ones are 5mm. Also note that the spacing between the tiles on the black ones are slightly larger than the white ones so after about 6" or so they won't line up any more. It's a shame because they seem to be fairly nice tiles otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The floors make the bathroom! I did not install it but it turned out beautifully. The installer said I had good taste and had no problem with installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant, retro look Beautiful tile—so much more elegant than the glossy finish. This matte version looks particularly stunning with black grout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted! I bought enough of this tile to cover my vestibule floor and love the way it looks! It was easy to install and easy to cut with a snap tile cutter (in order to fill the spaces along the edges). It was easy to use for a DIYer like myself!
