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.

This Merola tile is gorgeous. I really wanted something for my laundry room to make it look elegant and stylish with a black and white tile pattern. The tile is made of porcelain and can be installed to the floor/wall. I chose this tile knowing that porcelian tile is durable along with fashionable. I really like the large black star design on the center and a smaller star at each corner of the tile. Sixteen tiles come in a case. Very easy to install to a thinset and I used a non sanded grout in a bright white. We are very satisfied on the way it looks, feel and the durability. I suggest prior to install to lay out the tile in the pattern of your choice and go from there. We love it!

This tile is so bright and pretty in person. I didn't get these for their intended purpose, I am using them as stepping stones outside. My backyard has a black and white them and these are PERFECT! I am going to buy some more and do a walkway around my above ground pool as well. I hope they will hold up but considering they are porcelain and are made for floors i assume they will. I need to get a bag of paver sand for these but i am just in LOVE with the way it looks.

This is a very high end Spanish tile, made for floors and walls and look great. According to the manufacturer, the tile is rated for Heavy Residential or Light Commercial–Medium-duty residential floors including kitchens, halls, corridors, balconies and areas used more often with normal footwear and moderate amount of dirt. These tiles are perfectly square and all the same size, with straight edges. The star pattern looks great is the perfect match for any remodel. This tile surface has a low gloss/matte finish that does not have to be sealed and doesn't absorb water so it has great stain resistance. The tile finish also makes removing grout haze really easy during installation. This tile pattern looks good with either complementing or contrasting colored grout. With a tile this size grout lines more than 1/8" should be sanded grout. Cuts fine with a wet diamond saw. It is not slippery when wet, and is very strong and resistant to scratching. The tiles come well packaged, with a little swirl of easily removable glue to hold the stack together so there are no scratches or chipped corners. The packaging also states that this can be used outdoors since it does not absorb water, it is frost proof. 16 tiles per box.

I’m obsessed with these tile! These tile are beautiful, well made and solid, and came extremely well packaged and unbroken. They are fairly thick so I’m not worried about cracking, and though they are thick they were easy to score and cut. Plan to order a bit extra as there will be a little waste due to matching the pattern. If you like the design I would say go for it, you won’t be disappointed.
