Product Overview

Drawing inspiration from artisan cement tiles, the Merola Tile Twenties Classic Encaustic Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile - 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Tile Sample - 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Tile Sample exudes encaustic flair. Set on a speckled dark charcoal base, the off-white design features delicate grey freckles, giving this tile subtle definition. Soft, simplistic arcs frame the floral, old-world pattern and rendezvous to reflect Spanish designs. Capturing a sought after designer look, this pattern is great for bringing a custom look to your home for less. With a matte glaze, this artistic tile is an excellent choice for backsplashes, showers, foyers and exterior work. Pair this tile with the rest of the monochromatic, geometric patterned Twenties series or as a dynamic inflection for any application.

    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.
