Q:Does anyone have a picture of a floor application? A wide photo, if possible, would help get idea on how it looks on the floor. Thank you.

Answer This Question

A:  HI Yaheli! Thank you for your question! At this time, we do not have a picture of a floor application. I have asked my Marketing Team to add a floor scene to the photos. In the meantime, I suggest ordering a sample so you can get an idea of the shading and texture of the tile. The sample page can be found here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Merola-Tile-Rhombus-Black-5-1-2-in-x-9-1-2-in-Porcelain-Floor-and-Wall-Take-Home-Tile-Sample-S1FEQ6RBK/313938695.

    Q:Is the company still adding wax on the tile for shipping purposes only? some customers complained that it is hard to remove.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello! Thank you for your question! The manufacturer adds small wax pieces to prevent the tiles from bumping into each other during transit so they do not break. They should be easy to remove with warm soapy water and a non abrasive cloth. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Customer Service at 800-963-7652 and we will be happy to assist you! Have a great day! -Stephanie C

      Q:I purchased 4 boxes of tile and found that every tile is covered with a white wax. The wax does not come off without heavy scrubbing with soap and water in a sink, which is not practical. Please confirm whether this is a defect with the batch of tile.

      Answer This Question

      A:  HI Nathan! Thank you for your question! The white wax you are seeing is what the manufacturer puts on the tiles to stop them from rubbing in transit so the tiles wont break. If you use a nonabrasive cloth with soap and water the wax should come off. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Team at 800-963-7652 and we will be happy to assist you! Have a great day!- Stephanie C

          This tile is absolutely gorgeous. If your looking for a rich modern look this is an excellent choice. The four different patterns add some texture but are so unique. I've never seen anything like it in anybodys home

          Beautiful tile, but covered in white wax
          We purchased 4 boxes in black. Beautiful tile however it comes covered in a white wax that is very challenging to remove. To clean 1/2 of a box it took over two hours of scrubbing with a bristle brush in a sink of hot water. We will be returning this immediately. I can’t image if someone installed and then tried to clean the wax off. I assume the wax is to mitigate scratches during shipping but cleaning shouldn’t take longer than installation!

          HI Nathan! Thank you for your review! I am sorry you are not happy with your purchase. The white wax you are referring is put on the tiles to keep them from sliding and breaking during transit. It should come off with luke warm water, soap and a nonabrasive cloth. Please contact our Customer Service Team at 800-963-7652 and we would be happy to assist you! Have a great day! -Stephanie C

              Now, while the installation typically looks like it should be points floor to ceiling installation. As you will see in my application I placed the tiles with the points going wall to wall. This might not be the installation type you like, but in our case, it was necessary due to our limited area we had behind the bathroom sink. I really liked how the tiles have several different faces imprinted onto the tile. In my case, there were 4 different faces in my case.

              These tiles are going into a Bathroom as a contrasting Feature along with other tiles. The unique rhombus or diamond pattern along with the fact that THERE ARE 4-DIFFERENT TILES Here. If you look carefully you can see that there are 4 distinct patterns of tiles. #1 is Wavy Lines, #2 is a Zig-Zag, #3 is Spanish words & #4 is a Floral pineapple looking pattern. Now they can be arranged in almost infinite patterns and your imagination is the only limitation. They are suitable for floors as well as walls and would make a GREAT ACCENT FEATURE!!! Overall a Great Tile with many options for installation.

              There is a lot of good tile on the market, then there is the next level Rhombus (dark grey) tile from Merola. I've installed a lot of tile over the years and this is one of my all time favorites! This tile has many unique installation pattern options and with it's different surface textures; this tile can compliment almost any design from ultra modern contemporary to classic. The biggest challenge with this tile is deciding on the e end less layout / design options. After hours of having fun laying out different possible patterns with the tiles, and different texture patterns, I came up with a really cool looking tile pattern that will be used in a bathroom remodel. Pictures simply don't do this tile justice - it's gorgeous. I really like tile, color and different textures! Highly recommend !!!

              This Merola Rhombus Dark Grey Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile has a medium gloss. While all tiles are the same shape, there are actually four different but subtle patterns. One is a flora pattern, one is wavy lines, another is a zig zag pattern, and the tile pattern is made of words. The words (and some numbers) do not appear to have any kind of message but it's neat. This tile appears to be pretty tough. I dropped a few pieces a number of times on accident. None of them broke or even chipped. This tile is a tad pricey but would make a beautiful kitchen back splash.

              Merola Tile Rhombus Black 5-1/2 in. x 9-1/2 in. Porcelain Floor and Wall Tile (11.68 sq. ft. / case), Black / Medium Sheen Now this is what I call a well designed updated tile. The diamond shape and matte finish puts this tile into its own category, and lends itself to very creative arrangements. The new tiles will also complement the new Stainless Steel Black appliances now appearing on the market. As an interior designer I know texture is the key word in today's interior design, and I love the way the tiles are a mixture of 4 different patterns, which also vary the texture and subtly add interest to the usual boredom of one color tile walls. I will use them as a backsplash for a kitchen with older black appliances still in perfect working order. The fact that they are porcelain tiles is also a plus since porcelain uses a finer clay and is fired at a higher temperature, resulting in a stronger and harder tile. My tile installer claims in an earthquake, my house may go, but the last thing standing will be the porcelain tile!

              I love the unique shape of this tile. It brings me back to 8th grade geometry class since that's the last time I heard the word "rhombus". It certainly is a rhombus and it provides a really unique take on a floor tile. I, for one, think it would be a nice change of pace from perfect square tile or the patterned tile. I think it's different enough to be unique but not so different to where it's just weird. I think the finish is classy and the unique shape really makes it a cool option for an floor or wall tile. Really love the color and the feel of these tiles. Highly recommended.

              I would recommend this product to anyone who is updating or remodeling their kitchen or bathroom and want to add some décor to the walls or this product can be placed onto the floor as well. I would recommend that this product is professionally installed especially if placing on the walls but even to make sure that install is done correct when placing onto the floor as well.
