Questions & Answers

28Questions11Answers

Is this able to go on shower floor?

Asked by Corissa April 22, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! Yes, our Rustica Mini Glacier is suitable for shower floor installations as it has a glazed finish that will not absorb water and the grout lines will also contribute to overall slip resistance. We encourage you to order a sample of this product to determine whether if it suits your design preferences. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652

What about this product results in the CA Prop 65 warning?

Asked by Catie March 25, 2021
1
Answer

Hi! All ceramic and porcelain tiles are made from natural clay which may contain minerals that have silicon dioxide. Silicon dioxide poses a health risk if inhaled as dust is created when dry cutting tile with a saw. There is no health risk when the tiles are inert (not being cut/worked with), and no risk post-installation. Use of a wet saw or a manual score & snap cutter negates nearly all risk of inhaling silica dust. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

Is it glossy/polished?

Asked by Alexandr February 15, 2019
1
Answer

Hi, Alexandr! Our Rustica Mini Perla Bone has a mixed finish, meaning it features both glossy and matte mosaic chips. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to our customer service team at (800)-963-7652.

Grout color recommendation please

Asked by AJM June 17, 2018
1
Answer

Hi AJM, Home Depot always recommends Custom Building Products installation materials. Two great options for our Rustica Mini Springfield are #122 Linen or, if you’re looking for a bit more contrast, #60 Charcoal. Being as coordinating is a matter of personal preference, it is best to decide what color you feel matches best. Home Depot stores offer dried grout samples, so it is best that you take this tile to your local store and compare it to these samples in the flooring department. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Asked by Inquiry May 2, 2017
1
Answer

Good Afternoon, To cover a floor that is 250 square feet, you will need to purchase a minimum of 250 sheets. Each sheet covers 1 square foot. Being as we recommend purchasing a 10% overage to account for cutting, future repairs, dye lot and caliber consistency, you should buy 288 sheets. To find out how many tiles that you need to order, you can divide the square feet of the space by the square feet per case. Always round up to ensure you have enough cases (250/1=250 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 tile (287.5/1= 287.5 or 288 sheets). We encourage that you get an accurate square footage prior to making any purchases. Please feel free to call us with any further questions you may have at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Love these tiles-retro mid century modern look
These feel mid-century modern. Love them. The backing felt like loofa sponge and stretched when it was in place with adhesive. This could be a problem. They are pricey-wish I could afford more to keep on hand. Very retro. I added these to a Kante Small 13 in. Tall Slate Gray Lightweight Concrete Square Outdoor Planter with accents of leftover tiles: The smaller accent tiles HOUSE OF MOSAICS LTD Geo Moroccan Vintage Multi Geometric Pattern Glass Mosaic Wall Tile are brighter and did not match as well but I needed a filler so they did ok. The larger HOUSE OF MOSAICS LTD Geo Moroccan Large Multi Geometric Gloss Glass Mosaic Wall Tile were muted colors and subtle-they matched very well. I used about 2 cups of sanded tan grout. Love the finished product. Love that I can buy individually instead of a box. Please sell more tiles by the piece for artisans and crafters.

Great Tile for Fireplace Suround
We needed a neutral looking tile to cover our white carrera marble fireplace surround, which had become yellowed from the heat. I wanted something that would still work with the hearth, which was still in good condition. It was hard to find a tile that was pretty, but still had a high enough PEI rating to work as a fireplace surround. This tile was just perfect. I wasn't sure about the color, but it is darker than it looks in the bathroom picture supplied here. I've attached photos of our finished project. The paint color on the wall is Wind Chime by Benjamin Moore, which is a light yellow-green color.

Shower Pan & Deco Band
We used the Rustica Mini tiles in our shower pan & accented the shower wall with the Rustica in the deco band. Matched with the Sandy Beach Tile, we think it's an upscale look. Seemed pretty easy for our tile guys to line up the small squares in the deco band but was a little more difficult to do in the pan. You don't notice the misaligned squares in the shower pan, but they're there. Great look!

tile
This special order tile gave our bathroom remodel project that custom look without a lot of fuss. Installation was easy with the mesh backing on the 12 x 12 inch sections. We did receive one section with a tile reversed on the mesh. Luckily we caught it before the thinset hardened. All in all, I would recommend this product to my friends. Home delivery was easy and speedy.

Excellent Quality Tile
Subtle and classy, with slightly different color tone and texture of each of the tiles. We used premium epoxy grout and it took our contractor a little extra time to complete the tile work, but at the end we are very happy with the results. This is in a small bathroom, floor to ceiling throughout the entire room. Looks great.
