Answers

Hi! Our Metro Lantern Glossy White is sold by the individual sheet and covers 0.7 sq. ft. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is this still available in the grey color?

Asked by Ann November 5, 2019
1
Answer

Hi Ann! Although our Metro Lantern is not available in Grey, we do offer a similar product in our Hudson Tangier collection. You may be interested in our Hudson Tangier Slate Grey (https://thd.co/2rrz5Vh) or one of the other 30+ color options it is available in. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

What is the difference between this and FMALTGW?

Asked by CLE April 8, 2019
1
Answer

Hi, Cle! A couple of differences between our Marra Lantern and our Metro Lantern is that they are slightly different in size and sold differently. Our Marra Tile is sold by the case whereas our Metro Lantern is sold by the individual sheet. Also, our Marra is a dot mounted mosaic, while our Metro is a mesh-mounted mosaic. The color varies ever so slightly between these tiles as well. Our Marra is not as white as our Metro. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

I'm from California and did not find the pure white tile I wanted in any store near me. I finally decided to order it online and it came to me exactly as expected. I love it in my daughter's bathroom that has a kind of bohemian vibe. Used it on the shower walls and it looks great!

Hi, I am looking for a matching pencil for this tile. The bullnose, double bullnose, corners, etc...

Asked by Allen October 4, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Allen, Currently, we do not offer any pencil trims within the Metro series. We could offer two suggestions, but it would be up to you to determine if these would work for your installation. Our first suggestion would be our Blanco Liner trim https://thd.co/2K1OWh4. This is your typical white pencil trim that works with nearly all wall applications! Please note that this trim is made of ceramic, while Metro Lantern is made of porcelain. This means that this is suitable for indoor installations only. Our other suggestion would be our Bordon Blanco Moldura https://thd.co/2RukPnm. This trim is exactly 1” in width, making it ideal to be used as an accent tile. Just like Blanco Liner, this tile is made of ceramic and is only suitable for indoor wall applications. If neither of these options work for you, we would recommend looking into Schluter Trim http://thd.co/1qBLqjw which can be found at The Home Depot. In situations like this, we would recommend order a few trim pieces and seeing if they would coordinate well with our Metro Lantern Glossy White. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold (in this situation, an each). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

How much of this tile would I need to cover 19 sqft?

Asked by Laura October 2, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Laura, For a space that covers 19 square feet, you will need to purchase a minimum of 28 sheets as each tile covers 0.7 square feet. This does not account for the grout joints between each tile. To account for the recommended 10% overage for cutting, future repairs, dye lot and caliber consistency, we would recommend purchasing 30 sheets. To find out how many pieces you would need to order, you would need to divide the square footage of the space by the square footage per each. When doing this, ensure that you round up so you have enough sheets (19/0. 7 = 27.14 or 28 sheets). To account for the extra recommended amount, you should add 10% to the square footage, and then divide that by the square footage per sheet (20.9/0.7 = 29.86 or 30 sheets). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Can I use Bondera Tile Mat Set adhesive instead of thin set mortar for my backsplash?

Asked by MP September 14, 2018

Answers

Hi MP, As we are only the distributor of our own brand of products (Merola Tile) we are unable to provide in-depth detail about products from other manufacturers. We would recommend reaching out to Bondera at (508)-269-6363 for additional information. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

I need 80 sq. Ft. Of tile so how many boxes do I need?

Asked by Ellen June 22, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Ellen, For a space that covers 80 square feet you will need to purchase a minimum of 115 sheets as each tile covers 0.7 square feet. This does not account for the grout joints between each tile. To account for the recommended 10% overage for cutting, future repairs, dye lot and caliber consistency, we would recommend purchasing 126 sheets. To find out how many pieces you would need to order, you would need to divide the square footage of the space by the square footage per each. When doing this, ensure that you round up so you have enough sheets (80/0.7 = 114.29 or 115 sheets). To account for the extra recommended amount, you should add 10% to the square footage, and then divide that by the square footage per sheet (88/0.7 = 125.71 or 126 sheets). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Warning: our tile guys said this backsplash was a nightmare to work with-- tons of breaking/crumbling whether by saw or snips. On the other hand, it is very sharp looking. We matched it with Luna Pearl granite and grouted with the Oyster Gray Non-Sanded from Polyblend which produced a nice greige combination. So, I recommend this product because it's a popular look as long as you don't mind higher than normal waste and some frustration.

Response from MerolaTile Customer CareMay 22, 2019
Hi, Jim! We’re sorry for the installation issues you experienced with our Metro Lantern Glossy White. We wanted to clarify for you and future customers that we recommend removing individual chips which require cuts from the mosaic sheet, and using a wet saw with a diamond tipped blade to prevent cracks and breakage. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us.
Soooo beautiful!

The Metro Lantern Glossy White tiles made for a striking classic design for my small bathroom in an older building. I used the Metro Lantern tiles for the tub surround, and the mini lantern tiles on the floor. I also used the Merola quad tiles for the trim. Together, they pull the room together in a simple classic design. The shape and size is more elegant than the standard 4-inch square tiles. The quality and price made this an affordable choice.

I used this tile for my kitchen backsplash. It was packaged very well. I ordered 4 boxes and none of the pieces were broken. I have seen similar tiles that cost twice as much. I love how it looks! It took my contractor longer to install than he anticipated, but I am pleased with how it turned out.
