Asked by jlg October 25, 2019
1
Answer

Hi! Though our Metro Soho Subway Matte White and Madison Hex Matte Cool White both have a similar white base color, it is important to note that the products are produced at different factories and are not intended to directly coordinate. We would recommend purchasing a single piece, or case, of each product to compare and see if it suits your needs. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

How many cases to buy?

Asked by Kelly October 6, 2019
2
Answers

Hi, Kelly! For 39 square feet, you will need to purchase a minimum of 39 cases as each cases covers 1 square feet. This does not account for the grout joints between each tile. We recommend purchasing at least 43 cases to allow 10% overage in order to account for cuts, breakage, and dye lot and caliber consistency for future repairs. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652

What features stand out most? The tile finish is uniform and bright. It emulates turn of the century subway tile. Tight 1/16th of inch grout lines look great with white sanded grout. What do you like or dislike about it? The tile is not square, not the same size varying up to 1/8th inch in length and width making it hard to install especially using 1/16th grout spacing. BUT more importantly is tile HAS A LARGE BOW in each and everyone of the tiles so when installed the center of each tile will stand out 1/16th to a full 1/8th of inch in the center giving the field a offset brick like appearance. Your field will never lay flat tile over tile in a 1/4 or 1/3 over tile regardless of how you set the mastic (been doing this 23 years). The field will look like waves when finished so heads up if you are okay with that, then no issue, but for a historical reproduction in a bungalow it will not work. Unfortunately finding a 2x8 subway is almost impossible and 3x6 subway tile is not what you want to get that look. How long have you had it? Installed in January set against Motawi arts and crafts seasonal 8x8 and 4x8 tile. Does it meet your expectations? Yes and no. If you don't tile then yes, if you want quality and historical style then no. Also took a lot longer to install because of the bow in each tile and the varying lengths and widths.

We bought this tile because of its shape, color and value. I read all the reviews mentioning color not being consistent from box to box, so we laid out all 30 boxes of our order. There were many broken tiles due to how they were packaged. Someone tied zip ties around them so tight that the outermost tiles broke in many boxes. Also, some of the boxes were so beat up that they had pieces of cardboard missing. The tiles looked all the same color though, hooray! They are NOT, however, WHITE. This WHITE tile is extremely GRAY. We went ahead and put it up in our kitchen, but this is such a noticeable color difference, we are going to have to do something else to make it not a horrible eyesore. Don't buy this tile. Save yourself some some pain and suffering. This tile is not white. This is gray tile. Not white.

A few weeks ago we put this tile in as our kitchen backsplash to coordinate with new quartz counters. All the tiles came well packaged and zero were broken. I had a hard time finding the perfect shade of grey that excluded blue tones, but lucked out finding this one and at a reasonable price. Our kitchen looks great and modern. It's easy to clean. They were fast and easy for my husband to cut with a saw. The only negative is the tile is made in China.

Color
While I ordered a surplus of this tile, doing a herringbone pattern required a lot of cuts and therefore my installer ran out. I re-ordered more, but it was a completely different color. I called home depot and they explained to me tile can come from different dye lots, understandable, but where is the quality assurance. An off white I can expect, but the tile I received was almost gray in color. I re-ordered more hoping it would be similar to my first shipment. As you can tell from the picture, my 3rd order was not the same. Needing to move forward with the renovation I had my contractor go ahead and install the tile, but after grouting it looks horrible. I'd be very cautious in ordering this product from home depot.

We had nothing but a great experience with these tiles. We ordered 40 sq.ft. and only had one tile with a minor chip on the corner… (our contractor was able to use that one as an end piece & simply cut off that edge!) We had little to no waste as these tiles were able to be cut so well, we were able to use the scraps as filler pieces. My contractor made 191 cuts completing our complicated herringbone pattern, and not one broke. I highly recommend these tiles!!

The tile is exactly the color we were looking for. I looked at 100's of tiles on line. I really wanted 2x2 square but we decided to order this one since the color and finish go so well with our countertop. Packaged very nice too.

These tiles are bowed! Take note. If you're expecting flat subway tiles, these are not your choice. With COVID-19 and all the hassles with getting products, we had our installer install these despite the fact that they give the kitchen (used as backsplash) a completely different look. They almost produce a woven look due to the bowed nature of them.

Hi! We’re sorry to hear that our Metro Soho Matte Light Grey didn’t meet your expectations. Once properly grouted and installed, the edges should not be visible. We stand behind the quality of our products and appreciate your feedback!.
