Can this tile be used on the bathroom floor?

Asked by eavery September 22, 2019
2
Answers

Hi! Yes, our Metro Subway Matte White is suitable for bathroom floor installations as it is ADA compliant for slip resistance and the glazed porcelain is impervious to water. The grout lines will also help contribute to overall slip resistance. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Asked by Christopher April 6, 2019
1
Answer

Hi, Christopher! For a mosaic of this size, we would recommend the use of a 3/16 in. x 5/32 in. V-notch trowel. When selecting a trowel, you need to be sure that it is recommended for use with a tile that size. We always recommend Custom Building Products setting materials, and they also offer setting tools. Here is a link to this trowel on the Home Depot http://thd.co/1Qg2Zya. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

What is the difference between Metro Subway tile and Hudson Subway tile?

Asked by VT February 13, 2019
1
Answer

Hi, VT! Though similar, the difference between our Metro Subway Tile and our Hudson Subway Tile is that our Metro Tile has a matte finish whereas the Hudson Tile has a glossy finish. They are also two different sizes as our Hudson product is 11-7/8 in. x 12 in. and our Metro is 11-3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. If you have any other questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is there a bullnose tile in this collection for bordering a shower surround?

Asked by Kevin November 19, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Kevin, Yes, we carry our Metro Matte White Bullnose Strip https://thd.co/2HggLSk that is meant to coordinate with our Metro Subway Matte White (please keep in mind that since these tiles are manufactured at different times that dye lots may vary slightly). Unfortunately, this item is currently out of stock, but is scheduled to arrive in our facility by the week of December 3rd, 2018. Please keep in mind this date is tentative and subject to change. You could place an order for this tile at any time by going to your local Home Depot store and placing a special order in the flooring department with a flooring associate. By doing so, the order will ship within 2 business days after it arrives back in stock. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by midnight August 1, 2018

Answers

Hi midnight, Unfortunately, Merola does not carry any subway tiles that measure at 2”x4” or 2”x6”. We can offer a suggestion, but ultimately it would be up to you to determine whether or not it would work for your project. We would recommend looking into our Metro Soho Subway Matte White https://thd.co/2BMI2cG. While this doesn’t fit perfectly into the sizes you’re looking for, this is close to being a 2”x8” subway tile. If these tiles are too large for your installation, you could use a wet saw with a diamond tipped blade to cut them down to the required size. We always recommend the use of a wet saw as it offers the best cut with the least chance of breakage. After you finish cutting the tiles, you might want to sand the edges to smooth them down as they have the potential to be very sharp. In situations like this, we would recommend ordering samples from The Home Depot! This comes on a 3”x4” sample card which offer a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole tile https://thd.co/2qyTGmC. To be able to see the whole tile, we recommend ordering one pack. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Can this tile be installed inside the shower and above the sink with the backing still on it?

Asked by Lmbenoit January 21, 2018
1
Answer

Hi LMB, Yes, our Metro Subway Matte White can be installed inside a shower and above a sink with the backing on it! If the background construction is done properly, there should be no issues with the installation. If desired, you can remove the chips from the mesh to place them as you would like. If a chip falls off the mesh, we would recommend installing the chip into place instead of attempting to adhere it back onto the mesh. The adhesive used to glue it back to the sheet could act as a bond breaker for the thin-set you use to install it. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

what is the dimension on an individual tile on the sheet?

Asked by daniellek July 8, 2017
2
Answers

Good Afternoon, This mosaic has subway pieces that are approximately 0.88 in. W x 1.88 in. L. Each sheet is approximately 11-3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. and the case of 10 sheets covers approximately 9.6 square feet. There are 12 rows of 6 chips, totaling 72 chips per sheet. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

This tile is suitable for kitchen counter tops too right?

Asked by MR April 17, 2017
1
Answer

Good Afternoon, Yes, this tile is suitable for use as a kitchen countertop. This tile is a PEI 4, meaning that it is highly resistant to abrasion. This tile is glazed, so it will not absorb water through the glaze. As long as contaminants are cleaned up in a suitable amount of time, the tile will not be stained. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

worked out well. Had to buy a case because there were none in the local store. But my sister found some in her local store. Only needed 2 sheets and had to buy 10. That was upsetting but worked out OK

Good value smooth tile
These tile mosaic sheets are a good value. The white satin glaze is silky smooth. Best to inspect every sheet for occasional crooked tile or glue spots.

Really Beautiful Tile for Bathroom
This tile is beautiful. It has a lovely matte finish and looks wonderful with gray grout. It is small tile and I think makes the bath look bigger than 3" x 6" regular subway tile would. Great choice if I do say so myself!
