Q:I want to use this tile on kitchen floor and washroom/pantry. There is an 80 gallon water tank (300 lbs empty, 1000lbs full) that will be sitting on the floor and a 300 pound refrigerator. Will this tile be able to handle those weight loads?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi, Deb! We currently do not offer any trim pieces that would directly coordinate with our Osaka Matte White. In these cases, we recommend using a Schluter trim. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

      Q:I am considering using this tile or the Moonbeam Blue Cloud tile in my kitchen ... and need 130 sf of it .... are neither of these tiles sold by the case? How do I figure out how much I need?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi deb. Each of the Osaka Blue Cloud 11-3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. x 6 mm Porcelain Mosaic Tile are sold individually. Each piece is 11.75 in. x 11.75 in. or .96 sq. ft. each. For your 130 sq. ft. area, you will need at least 136 pieces with another 10% extra for breakage and the “OPPS” factor. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Merola-Tile-Osaka-Blue-Cloud-11-3-4-in-x-11-3-4-in-x-6-mm-Porcelain-Mosaic-Tile-FKOOKA34/205941687 Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

      A:  Hi Deb, These items are only sold by the sheet, but will ship in cases of up to 10 sheets. For a space this size, you will need a minimum of 133 sheets. Each sheet of both tiles you are exploring covers .96 square feet, and with 1/8” grout lines between sheets, they will cover approximately .98 square feet. Being as we recommend purchasing a 10% overage to account for cutting, future repairs, dye lot and caliber consistency, you should buy 146 sheets. To find out how many sheets that you need to order, you can divide the square feet of the space by the square feet per sheet. Always round up to ensure you have enough sheets (130/.98=132.6 or 133 sheets). To account for the extra recommended tile, you should add 10% to the square footage, and then divide that by the square foot per sheet (143/.98= 145.9 or 146 sheets). Please feel free to call us with any further questions you may have at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

        Great for small projects!
        I love this tile because it's a great neutral, but it has a unique pattern. Installation was super easy because it is mat backed. It made cutting and arranging very easy! We chose to install this as an above the sink backsplash in a bathroom. The small size breaks in the tile pattern made it perfect for a large or small space. I absolutely love the way it turned out! It would look great as a kitchen backsplash, as well!

        Beautiful
        The Merola Tile Osaka Glossy White mosaic tile in 12x12 sheets is a very nice tile. I have been looking for an accent tile for two large niches in my walk-in shower remodel. I wanted something that was detailed but not too busy and this is just that. While it has many pieces and both curved and straight lines, it manages to be just simple enough of a pattern to not overwhelm. The pattern seems to transcend styles from minimalist to transitional to ethnic. All sheets came with all pieces fully adhered to the mesh. I can’t wait for my new shower!

        Beautiful glossy tile
        The Merola Tile Osaka Glossy White 12 in. x 12. in Porcelain tile is beautiful. The large tiles and unique design stand out. It is an intricate design that I haven't seen before. It reminds me of what I would see in a designer's home, and I'm really glad I came across it. This was originally going to be used in our kitchen but after seeing reviews, we will use it in our bathroom as well.

        Clean white glossy tile in a great design
        Nicely designed, clean looking porcelain tile in a white glossy smooth finish from Merola Tile company. Each tile is 12 x 12 and measures 11-3/4 inches by 11-3/4 inches. Each case includes 10 pieces which cover about 9.8 square feet. Documentation says this is good for floors and walls but there are different points of view concerning Grade 1 porcelain tile. I've always been told not to use grade 1 tile for flooring so I’m not sure this would be my choice for flooring but would be a better choice for backsplashes and walls.

        Beautiful white tile
        We used this tile for the floor and accent in our shower niches in a bathroom. It’s a beautiful bright white tile, the pattern is really unique. The reason for 4 stars is that it’s hard to grout and takes a lot of grout! I am posting two pictures, one is the floor with grout and the second is the shower niches - which are not grouted yet. We used this with the in stock 4x16 white gloss tiles for the walls of the shower, they are the same shade of bright white.

          Nice brilliant color. The netting provides no support. Make sure you buy mosaic tile backer if installing on a wall.

          Excellent Quality High-Gloss Mosaic Tile with a Beautiful and Versatile Pattern
          I wanted to install a tile back-splash for my utility sink and needed a patterned, high-gloss tile that would be easy to clean and also help hide splashes between cleanings. A mosaic tile of some sort was one potential solution. The Osaka porcelain mosaic by Merola caught my eye. Having previously lived in New Mexico, this tile is reminiscent of the New Mexican Zia pattern and nothing like I would expect for a tile marketed under the name "Osaka." Upon arrival, I found it to be well-packaged and, therefore, undamaged. If you've installed mosaic tile, you know that some of the small pieces of tile will be loose from the mesh backing. That was not the case with this mosaic, making installation easier - the mesh is sturdy and all of the pieces of tile were well-adhered to the mesh. While the tile is a nominal 12" x 12" format, it measures approximately 11-5/8" square and the thickness is 0.20" (slightly smaller and thinner than the specifications on the Home Depot website). Joint spacing is 3/16". I applied Custom Building Products AcrylPro mastic using a 3/16" by 5/32" v-notch trowel to attach it to painted and textured sheet-rock which was sanded down to the paper and cleaned to ensure good adhesion. I used a Ridgid multi-saw to cut pieces to fit around plumbing penetrations. The tile cuts easily using a diamond grit blade. To finish the installation, I will apply Custom Building Products medium grey grout and in a couple of weeks I will seal the grout with a silicon sealer. Overall, the tile worked very well for my needs and I expect the pattern to look great with the grey grout. Focusing specifically on the tile: 1) the pattern is very versatile, 2) the gloss finish is very uniform, 3) the sheets of tile are very uniform in size , 4) the individual pieces of mosaic are well-secured to the backing mess and 5) overall, the tile appears to be very high-quality. On the downside: 1) about one-third of the sheets had a small chip in one of the mosaic pieces (will be readily hidden after grouting and sink re-installation), 2) dimensionally, the sheets are slightly smaller than the specifications on the Home Depot website and 3) the tile is thinner than other similar tile potentially used to create a border or other architectural detail (if desired). Bottom-line: high-quality mosaic tile, beautiful pattern, and easy to create a beautiful back-splash.

          Love this tile. We used it on our master bathroom floor. Also purchased it in glossy for accents on the shower walls with subway tile.
