Can the pieces be separated from the sheet?

Asked by Erin October 11, 2018
3
Answers

Yes. Think of the sheet as a heavy duty, open weave canvas. It makes transporting the tiles easier plus, since they are fully adhered to the backing, you don’t have to use those plastic spacers that look like little crosses in order to get the space between tiles (for grout) exactly right. It’s already done for you. But, you can also cut the tiles away from the set in case you need to cut a tile in half or if you want to use some for a totally different project.

How many boxes do I need to cover 36 sq feet

Asked by Jj79 March 9, 2018
2
Answers

Hi Jj79, For a space that covers 36 square feet, you will need to purchase a minimum of 52 sheets as each sheet 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 57 sheets. To find out how many sheets 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 tiles (36/0.7 = 51.42 or 52 sheets). To account for the extra recommended amount, you should add 10% to the required square footage, and then divide that by the square footage per tile (39.6/0.7 = 56.57 or 57 sheets). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is this the same tile as the discontinued Model FKOLB140 just smaller sheets? Would it match the ...

Asked by lolomarieski October 23, 2017

Answer

Good Afternoon, This tile is similar to the discontinued item, but they are not exactly the same. These two mosaics are from different factories, meaning that the glazes and the shape of the lanterns will not match exactly. We do not have any of the discontinued mosaic still in our warehouse so we are unable to reference this item in any way except for these images. If you were trying to coordinate the old tile with the new, we would recommend ordering a single sheet to see if they can coordinate. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity that they are sold (for this, by the sheet). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Hi, Do you happen to know how much tile I would need to purchase for 136 sq ft bathroom floor?

Asked by CB March 17, 2017
1
Answer

Good Morning CB, Our Metro Lantern Matte White is sold by the each which is .7 square feet. For your bathroom which is 136 square feet you will need 195 eaches. We always recommend ordering 10% extra for cutting, future repairs and dye lot and caliber consistency, so you will need to order a total of 215 eaches. To find out how many cases that you need to order, you can divide the square feet of the space by the square feet per each. Always round up to ensure you have enough product (136/.7=194.2 or 195 eaches). To account for the extra recommended tile, you should add 10% to the square footage, and then divide that by the square foot per each (150/.7= 214.2 or 215 eaches). Please feel free to call us with any further questions you may have at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

How many sheets to cover 56 square feet

Asked by Simonelli February 25, 2017
2
Answers

Good Afternoon, For a space this size, you will need a minimum of 80 sheets. Each sheet covers .7 square feet. Being as we always encourage buying 10% overage to account for cutting, future repairs and dye lot consistency, we encourage purchasing 88 tiles. To find out how many tiles that you need to order, you can divide the square feet of the space by the square feet per tile. Always round up to ensure you have enough tiles (56/.7=80 tiles). To account for the extra recommended tile, you should add 10% to the square footage, and then divide that by the square foot per tile (61.6/.7=88 tiles). Please feel free to call us with any further questions you may have at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Matte white tile used for backsplash
This is a gorgeous, elegant tile. I ordered the matte and glossy in white to go with a creamy-white painted kitchen. The matte was the warmer/creamier of the two, so I went with that one. I had a professional install the tile as I didn't have the time to try it. It proved to be a very labor intensive project, with a LOT of cuts. I had seven outlets and light switches, and a window. I had it grouted with a very similar colored grout, I didn't want it to stand out too much. It is a lovely look, and the scale is appropriate for my 17" high backsplash. I believe the tile was shipped from the maker. They did a great job of packaging the tile for shipping. It was in a large box with tons of spray to fit foam in plastic bags, then the tiles sheets were individually packaged in plastic and cardboard in an inner box with bubble wrap. Not a single damaged tile in the 39 sheets that I ordered.

The tiles themselves were fine but the mesh backer had water-soluble glue, which caused the individual tiles to completely fell off when I cut it with a wet tile saw. This made it very difficult to install. Terrible design flaw.

Response from MerolaTile Customer CareMay 22, 2019
Hi, Mike! We are sorry for the issues you experienced with our Metro Lantern Matte White. We wanted to clarify for you and future customers that we recommend removing individual chips which require cuts from the mosaic sheet. Many mosaic products use a water-soluble adhesive to bond the chips, which may dissolve and cause them to detach if cut on a wet saw. Thank you for your feedback! We hope you were satisfied with the result of your installation.
