Response from MerolaTile Customer CareJan 30, 2019
Hi Beebabobityboop,

We’re glad to hear that our Metro Octagon Matte White and Black worked for your installation. We wanted to clarify to future customers that this mosaic uses a dot mounted adhesive, rather than the traditional mesh mounted adhesive. The corner square that’s mentioned only has one contact point with another mosaic chip, so only one dot adhesive can be applied. Thanks for the feedback!

Very good value and quality
We just did a second bathroom using this tile; the first bathroom we did ten years ago and it wore so well, cleaned so great, we wanted to repeat with a product we knew we could trust. We used with Pewter color sanded grout. White grout, we were informed, would become dirty and discolored over time whereas the pewter would remain the same color regardless of exposure to grime. This held true with our original floor, with ten years of daily wear and tear being a fairly good test.

This product was amazing to work with in our home that we are restoring from the 1800s. We had to work around an old cast iron tub that we were not moving and this tile worked well.

worked great for my little bathroom
I was very pleased with my tile. It came quickly to my house and shipping was very reasonable. No broken or chipped tiles. Easy enough to install and haven't had any problems to date.

Product isn't installed yet but the Merola Oxford tile is great.
Fine, attractive tile, though it is a bit thin ( just 3/16") and had a tendency to crack if mishandled. Also a dropped metal object may chip the surface and leave a grayish mark below the porcelain enamel. Still we were able to install the entire shower floor and small bathroom floor without incident. looks great. The non-slip surface was a primary concern in selecting this brand.

We have just done one bathroom with this tile and will be doing a second next week. The look is even better then we expected! Really nice for our small bathrooms. We had the installer use Fusion Pro grout in Delorean Gray, as this shade was recommended by a couple of the reviewers. It is perfect! Not too dark or light so does not contrast sharply with the white and black tiles. Curiously, you almost do not notice it.

      The tile is well designed and I noticed no variation in coloring or glazing. The pre-matted mosaics are easy to install, provided to know how to lay-out tile (snap the center line and work outwards). Cutting and shaping is fairly straight forward with either a nipper or tile saw. I ordered 15% extra as I prefer to keep a case around in the event of an unlikely repair is needed. Overall this a good product and provided it is installed according to specs and over a base system should hold up for many years.

      Tiles were easy to install and we only had one that was blemished. Just remember that when estimating the grout needed that the tiles are actually 2" x 2" with 1/8" grout lines. If you estimate for 11.5" x 11.5" tiles you probably won't have enough grout.

      This is a nice looking tile and looks great with gray grout. I ordered a box of this tile to supplement what had been laid in a bathroom a few years ago. Although this box didn't say "Merola," it is the same product number and looks exactly the same. The tile works well in the shower floor as well as the regular floor and is easy to lay. The sheets can be easily separated if needed. Overall, very nice product.

      The porcelain version of this design looks like a good tile but I bought some of the less expensive ceramic version to compare and they looked absolutely identical. Put them on the floor next to each other and could not tell them apart. So I chose the ceramic.

      Inconsistent
      First box I ordered was perfect so ordered enough for project. The rest of the order came with new packaging. The spacing between mosaic pieces in this lot was inconsistent. Probably okay if using matching grout, but wouldn't use a contrasting color.

        Porcelain tile install takes time and skill
        Purchased online. The tile arrived at the store in good condition and on schedule. Would recommend this process to the experienced home owner.

        Just as expected
        Most of the tiles had a decent grout lines, bust some of them were glued together crooked. I removed all the little white squares and replaced them with grey glass squares

        Home Depot had it!
        This octagonal tile aligns with the feel and look of my older home ( circa 1910). I was contemplating a wood floor, but if your floor pitches or sags a bit, this tile is perfect for a solid foundation. I also wanted a green diamond flooring and really no other company readily had the style but Merola. And after much searching, i went to the obvious source, HD, that had the product and assured it would arrive in time for the scheduled contractor to install it. I would suggest using this tile pattern on a more limited floor space, since the tight geometric design can present a busy optical pattern. But for my old farmhouse bathroom, it's perfect.

        Very poor manufacturing quality
        I needed to use these instead of Daltile's version due to needing the increased slip resistance that is required in a bathroom with a shower. The space is atrocious. Out of 5 boxes, I ended up having an entire box full of sheets where the spacing was so bad you could see how out-of-square the sheet was from across the room. HD accepted the return. For the tiles that I did have to use, I experienced the same "adhesive bumps" that stick up past the surface of the tile that another reviewer had mentioned. Additionally, it was very apparent that at somewhere in the manufacturing process the usual adhesive must have let go, and someone had manually used hot glue to put some tiles back in to the matrix. The hot glue didn't hold up to the cargo ship trip from China to the States, so a number of tiles had to be manually placed after cutting out the globs of dried hot glue. To add to the frustration, a number of tiles had black spray paint on them! Some times very randomly, a few tiles in the middle of a sheet would have what could only be described as paint overspray. Like someone was painting nearby the assembly line. Most instances the paint would scrape off with my fingernail but not in all cases. Daltile's version is far superior (I used in my half bath) in quality compared to this one. Wish it had the correct slip resistance factor for use in a room with a shower.

          Good tile, good price...hard to install yourself
          The burgundy centers matched our circa 1950 bathroom wonderfully, but my husband (who is an avid DIY kind of guy) had many complaints about the number of cuts this tile required and how difficult it was to space everything. He is meticulous though and it turned out looking great. I would say, we liked the tile, but maybe get someone else to install! ;)

            Good product, but beware flaws!
            The tiles look good and were easy to install -- some of the tiles could have been spaced a little more evenly, but overall the sheets were pretty uniform and the glue dots were easy enough to tear off of the tiles when adjustments were needed. HOWEVER, my biggest complaint is that some of the glue dots had oozed up pretty high on the sides of the tiles when the sheets were assembled in-factory -- high enough that they poke through the top of my grout in about 10-12 places in my 26 sqft floor... dark dots in light gray grout is not a good look. I'm kicking myself that I didn't notice until giving the grout a final clean at the end of install. I'd recommend that future buyers/installers of this tile do a thorough job inspecting each sheet before it's laid to catch the wonkiest of the dots. As for color: these tiles are not bright white, but I wouldn't call them off-white or antique white, either. Just...white. And they do seem very durable -- I dropped a few after making cuts and they didn't chip or break.
