Beautiful tile!
We love this tile! We chose a black grout to really make the white design pop. Our kitchen has a super retro vibe and the floors are everyone's favorite feature!

I have had nothing but great experiences with Merola Tiles and am I always impressed. In two words, my overall first impression of these tiles is "simply amazing". The Trident Hex Blanco Encaustic tile's size and shape is perfect for multiple design applications. I love the design pattern and the hexagonal shape. These tiles are thick and have weight to them and just feel that they are made with quality in mind. I will be using these particular tiles to make an attractive tile entrance way for our front door. Another winner from Merola.
by Johnnyringo1515
This tile comes in a hexagon shape with a bold black and white trident accent. The bright white unsanded grout goes absolutely well with the trident hex porcelain floor/wall black and white tile. Each tile has 3 white line directional on black. I place it in our second bathroom wall as a backsplash. Made of porcelain with a semi gloss surface. I recommend you place out the tile prior to install to get a better idea of format design of your liking, along with applying a thick thinset of mortar in order to keep the tile up onto the wall. Such a modern look and we love it! I've added a few photos to view on different pattern designs. I follow a few home improvement shows and notice this type of tile is the new wave of choice and I can see why. The hex design tile placed in our small bathroom really stands out and takes a little craft to complete it. 25 pieces per case that weighs up to 52 lbs. It will take a bit of elbow grease to clean each tile prior to install. The wax that spaced on each tile during packaging to prevent scratching stays on pretty well. We like it so much, possibly buy more to install in our cottage bathroom.

This Merola Trident Hex tile is absolutely gorgeous! It is Excellent quality tile and made to last. The shape and design allows you to be so creative with many different design lines all from the same tile. I am very happy with how my project is coming out. I am using it in front of my fireplace. Beautiful tile that changes the whole room. A definite upgrade. It is easy to work with and just stunning when it's actually laid out. I will try to post a picture when the whole thing is finished. I LOVE THIS TILE!!! Highest recommendation!!

We're putting this tile in a corner of my wife's art studio. The black-on-white coloring opens up the corner a bit and makes it brighter. The tiles themselves are heavy, as are most quality tiles, so it takes a bit more finesse and patience (and strong adhesive) when putting them up on a wall as opposed to a floor, but we like the effect on the wall for our purposes.

The thing I like most about this tile is the diversity of designs available with the same tiles depending upon how you arrange them. So many possibilities that all look great and work perfectly in so many different applications. A contemporary design with a low sheen finish. Easy to clean but the shape makes it a bit more difficult to install taking more time. Nice size, of good quality and looks lovely.

This 8 inch hexagon tile is GORGEOUS. From the design on the tile to the actual tile itself, I couldn’t be happier with this purchase. The Merola Trident Hex Nero Encaustic tile design gives you a number of options to create different patterns or looks. I chose to lay these tiles in the starburst pattern, which gave me that mid-century modern vibe I was looking to attain in our first floor half bath. Everyone who walks into this bathroom comments on this tile floor. It is a showstopper! Regarding the porcelain tiles themselves, the color and pattern were consistent within every box opened, and installation was simple. I laid these with a 1/16 grout line and had no issues with tiles being a different size or a little off. Overall, I’d give this tile from Merola 10 stars if I could. It’s that great!! I have three more bathrooms (and a kitchen!) in need of renovating...and I will definitely be incorporating tiles from Merola in these next designs.
