Looking for "subway" tile and hexagon tile

Hello, I was looking for the classic 3" x 6" "subway" style white tile for the walls surrounding my tub and shower. Originally I thought that this tile was it, but it appears to be much smaller according to your answer for the size of one single tile. I also was looking for the classic 1" hexagon white tiles for the floor, in the same shade of white as the tile on the wall. Can you please recommend tile that are actually these sizes? It's fine if it's mounted on a mosaic type of sheet, I just want to make sure that I get the correct actual tile sizes for a 1920's look.
Asked by: Libby
You are correct, the individual tiles on these mesh backed sheets are quite small, maybe 2 X 3 or 1 X 3 inches. Merola Hex Tile in Glossy White or Matte White is sold by Home Depot in the 1 inch size and it is high quality. They also sell the normal size subway tiles by Merola to match. If you use this combination, I highly recommend the Plastpro brand vinyl wainscoting and chair rail/baseboard to go part way up the wall. Contrary to what the packaging says, it can be painted and looks very nice without the mold or deterioration risk from mdf or wood. I used Zinsser 123 mildew resistant primer and Behr bathroom paint in Satin finish, mixed to mimic Benjamin Moore White Dove. You cannot tell it is vinyl and I like knowing it will not warp or mildew.

Metro Subway Glossy White 11-3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. x 5 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile (9.6 sq. ft. / case) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.

I have to say, the packaging looked indestructible. I could have thrown the box to the ground (I did not—haha!) and the tile would have been safely inside with all the packaging. I was very happy about this because I was so worried the tile would come cracked. We did not install the tile ourselves, but the tile guy had no complaints. We used the sheets for the backsplash in our new kitchen. The cabinets are white shaker and Zodiaq London Sky quartz. The tile isn't as "glossy" as I had hoped, but provided enough of the shiny look I wanted without overspending on glass tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our Backsplash This is the second time we have used this tile for our kitchen backsplash in two different homes. It looks great next to our marble counter tops. The packing is much better than it was a year ago. We had lots of broken tile but this year it is packed much better and had no broken tile with two shipments. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, just know individual tiles are small This is a very nice, easily installed subway tile. Just be sure to examine and be aware the tiles are mini subway tiles. There also are Merola larger size subway tiles available. For my use these were good, though I *might choose standard size if I had my shower to do over again. These would be nice for a back splash or smaller area, though. Overall, a quality tile and minimal breakage/well packed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes an awesome backsplash! I enjoyed installing this tile. A little tricky due to the location of the installation, but otherwise easy to install. Only problem I had is ordering one box of tile and most of it was chipped or broken. One has to buy more than one box to get good quality tile without chips or cracks. Great tile!

Very pleased with how it looks. Kitchen is a work in progress so this tile gives us flexibility and options for painting cabinets later as it's neutral.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 out of 4 boxes were good... Ordered 4 boxes. Two were in pretty good shape, no chips or wonky tiles. The other 2 had at least one broken tile per sheet, and the tiles were not lined up very well so I had to cut a few of them out and lay them properly during install. For the price these are good tiles, just be sure to order extra to make up for any damage and be prepared to have to lay a few individual ones to make up for broken/wonky ones.
