What grout color would you recommend? Home Depot doesn’t carry one in stock that matches.

Asked by Kandice January 23, 2020

Answers

We chose a charcoal Gray. We used the tile on an outdoor covered balcony in the Pacific Northwest, so we wanted it to be low maintenance.

Any ideas when/if this will be added back in stock, by the case?

Can this tile be used for shower floors?

Asked by ALM July 9, 2018

Answers

I wouldn't recommend it. I think with all that water, it would get too slick. Use something with more grout lines. I used this for the bathroom floor with variegated grey penny round on the shower floor. It's beautiful.

At 0.23 in. thickness is this ceramic tile suitable for a laundry room floor? I have been told (...

Asked by Wally June 23, 2018

Answers

Hi Wally, Yes, our Twenties Vintage would be a great choice to use on a laundry room floor. This tile has been installed in laundry rooms with great success by a number of our customers! People have installed stacking laundry appliances and claw foot tubs on this tile with no issue. Rest assured that despite the thin depth, this tile offers great durability. When preparing to lay any tile you need to make sure that the floor is completely level. Keep in mind that your tile is only as good as the surface it is attached to, so any tile can break with an improper subfloor. We encourage getting a local contractor involved if there is still uncertainty with the install. If you’re still hesitant, you could look into our Arte series https://thd.co/2BOp99D. The Arte series has a similar design to Twenties Vintage in a thicker, porcelain format. If you would like to determine if either Twenties Vintage or our Arte series is right for you, we offer samples at the Home Depot! To order a sample of Twenties Vintage, ensure under the option section that you have the sample version selected and hit “Add to Cart”. We offer samples of our Arte series but they are not full tile samples. Our Arte samples https://thd.co/2lySXQ7 come adhered to a 3”x4” sample card which offers a color and texture sample, not a look at the whole pattern. To be able to see the whole pattern, we recommend ordering one case. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold in. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Home Depot sells these individually and they are 7 3/4 x 7 3/4. You would have to figure out how many individual pieces you would need to cover 80 square feet. Hope this helps.

Answers

I had 4 tiles shipped to me to see what the pattern looked like and to see the colors. I didn't end up using these tiles even though I like them , it just wasn't the right tile for a particular job I was doing. You might want to just order/pick up one. The grey is little more pale then it looks in the picture.

The pattern is so beautiful but not overly busy! We were worried that it was going to be too much pattern to tile our shower with but it looks great! The picture is from during the project we haven't taken after pics yet! Used charcoal grout & caulk!

These tiles were a great vintage element that allowed me to experiment with a colored vanity and still stay true to the age of the house. Love the matte finish.

This tile is absolutely gorgeous. Colors true in multiple boxes, packaged well. Anyone who watches HGTV knows that this "Twenties" style is back in vogue! I appreciated the smaller size 7 inch tile due to the small powder room space we were designing. Don't be afraid to enjoy this great pattern on your floor.

We have this tile and love it!! Totally transformed our small bath. Great look for a great price! Just wanted to offer a caution- when we ordered you could order by tile ( not just by carton); 1/2 of one carton was damaged in shipment. We didn't check them all completely upon shipment ( checked those on top) and only discovered AFTER most of the floor had been cut. Then they were out of stock for months, and we were short 1 tile ( for months)! Make sure to order plenty extra, and potentially some extra individual sample tiles as coverage in case there is breakage.

Beautiful tile
We installed this tile in our laundry room. We have an old farmhouse so the style is perfect. Only a few tiles arrived damaged. We’ve only had it installed for a few weeks so I can’t really speak to durability yet but it looks great

This tile is so gorgeous! I installed it in a bathroom and couldn't be happier with the results. This was my first time installing patterned tile so I'm glad I bought extra pieces since I couldn't simply reuse a piece. I used pewter polyblend grout which matches the gray in the tile very well.

Installed these tile myself in the sunroom of our 1918 home. Fits right in and looks fantastic. My order had no broken tiles or defective tiles. Used the matching Merola solid tiles as a border. I used the PolyBlend Charcoal grout which matches the tile color. Definitely a wow factor.
