Beautiful tile. I opted for delivery to the store. No tile has was cracked. The flooring came earlier than expected, I wish I knew bc it kind of messed my my timing of when I wanted the flooring done. It worked out though. My contractor layed 100sq ft in my basement bath/laundry room in about 5.5 hours. It is very expensive to me, but after seeing everyone’s pictures and how beautiful theirs turned out I couldn’t resist. Had it been cheaper, I would have never hesitated. It’s comparable to other online sources and I guess it is considered a custom look. I am going for a modern farm look. The lines in the pattern matches very well!! We used gray grout and it dried lighter which is ok by me. I do t think you can go wrong with white gray or black grout. See finished picture.

Blue tiles like these will certainly brighten up an area. The color is very beautiful and it has a nice dimension to it. There are color flecks in the blue so it is not just a flat color. The pattern is self contained and the finished layout will appear as a 9 inch pattern. You will definitely want to use an ultra thin grout line to keep the pattern looking nice. The bonus is that you get to use non-sand grout which helps a lot in wall installations. The surface is fully glazed, smooth but not quite glossy. It cleans easily - I found that even things like permanent marker come right off. Overall quality is excellent, with consistent color and pattern dimensions from tile to tile.
