Do you need a grout with this tile? Or is it just the cement underneath

Asked by Gia September 30, 2017

Answers

We used a dark charcoal grout between the tiles-looks beautiful!

Is there something I need to apply to the finished laid tiles to make the colors brighter? My tiles look dull.

I personally like the matte look but maybe putting a sealer that could darken the grey and brighten the white. I used an emerald green on the walls that makes the floor pop

If I'm using this tile as a backsplash, how do a I finish the edge that doesn't run into a wall?

Have the tile dealer bevel & stain the outside edge the same color as the grout. It's a very subtle edge.

Not ok for shower floor.

Will this tile hold up in the kitchen?

Asked by Jenna September 21, 2016
4
Answers

Yes, would look great as a backsplash, if that's what you have in mind. It is a thinner tile than some so you cannot use another tile in combo because they will be different thicknesses. Please note: tile does not have matching field tiles or bullnose, so to finish an edge you must use Schleutter, a thin metal strip.

Is this tile a bright white or is it a slight cream? I have off-white counters and I'm wondering if the tile would coordinate with the counter.

I'm with your tile support person. In fact, I would say NEVER order tiles meant to be matched with others, without trying the inexpensive method of ordering a sample first. There are simply too many 'whites' and 'blacks' out there to hope it will match your current tile. I ordered four tiles so I could get a sense of the pattern. The 'Black" is a very dark charcoal....softer than a true black; the white is 'white' but with the satiny/matte glaze, it, too, is a softened color of white. Just buy the sample, then you'll know for sure. I wanted something a bit more exotic than the pretty, contemporary tiles out now and, since our new bath is quite narrow, decided just to use a set of these tiles - 16 tiles on the wall of the bathtub - as an accent. Because this house is at the beach and tile can be chilly on the floor, decided to use the new style plank stone-look vinyl flooring there. Will post pix once the tub wall is completed.

Love, love, love these tiles. We did a renovation in our 1940's cape cod and felt these really were a nod to the original character of the home. Very pleased with the tiles. I bought 5 cases and had no damaged tiles. A little tricky to cut if you're a DIY'er just because of the design--you can't flip over the tile to make markings because you'll end up cutting off the wrong side of the design. Ours turned out beautifully! I highly recommend a charcoal (black) grout, because it keeps the grout from distracting from the design on the tile.

We installed these tiles ourselves on our kitchen floor and overall we are satisfied. The tiles give an otherwise plain kitchen a lot of character. Once we had measurements correct, install was easy and Deloreon Gray grout from Home Depot was a perfect color match with the gray of the tile. We've noticed a few spots where the tile has already been damaged, although they are minor dings and could have occurred during cabinet and/or appliance installation. Would definitely recommend ordering many extras to maintain the consistent pattern of the tile.

Product arrived quickly and there were no broken tiles. They look even more beautiful in person! We used for our main floor bathroom and guest shower floor. We also added an accent using 4 of the tiles on the shower wall. Couldn't be happier with the end results. Color was true to what you see on the website. We have already received many compliments.

We were looking for a bathroom tile to go with our Art Deco themed bath remodel instead of using typical black and white hex tile. This tile fit the bill perfectly and the quality was excellent for the price. The tile is more of an off-white and dark gray and gives the look of expensive encaustic handmade cement tile at a fraction of the cost. I like the way four tiles come together to form the larger decorative pattern. Also, I feel that a medium gray grout (we used pewter) looks better than white or black (charcoal) grout which would have been too dark.
