Terrible to install!
We bought these tile for our contractor to install. He admitted that he didn't have a lot of experience with this type of tile, but gave it a go. It was a disaster! As we were planning to use the same tile in the other bathroom, we hired a professional tile installer. After laying everything out, he confirmed that the tile was poor quality, impossible to match, and poorly adhered to the backing, leaving gaps when adjusted. He told us that for the price, he was shocked at the quality. We were able to return 5 of the 12 cases, but have to re-tile the first bathroom completely. I'm disappointed as I was looking forward to using these tiles, but it did make our original contractor feel better to know that the disaster of the floor was not due to user error. I won't be using this brand in the future. I do NOT recommend, unfortunately.

This tile was my second choice. But, I decided to use the classic tile that would be installed in the house in 1937ish. So glad I chose this. It's really beautiful, just beautiful! My first tile DIY. I highly recommend this tile. Good value, outstanding results.

BEWARE! BLACK AND WHITE MATTE TILES ARE NOT THE SAME SIZE! 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.

Response from MerolaTile Customer CareDec 13, 2018
Hi ObsessedDIYer,

We’re sorry to hear that our Metro Hex Matte Black didn’t meet your installation needs. We can understand why this is so frustrating as these are both options under the “Metro Hex” series. Looking forward, we will be moving this series over to a 6 mm thickness format so that they match up with each other. Until this change is fully implemented, we would suggest reviewing the mosaic thickness provided in the product name, the “Product Overview” section and the “Specifications” section.

You came up with a great solution to solve this issue, and we appreciate that you posted about it to help future potential buyers. Thank you for the feedback!
