Has anyone used this tile in two locations in their house? I am finishing up our bathroom and love the tile and the look. I over-ordered and am wondering if I should use the tile in my kitchen as a backsplash or in our basement laundry room or return the additional cases. I don't want to over-do the look. We have a 1920's arts and craft style house. Any thoughts?
Asked by: Cons
This pattern comes in two different colors: white on a black background and black on a white background. If you want to mix things up you could use a different color for each room. That way they will look slightly different enough but you can get the style that you like.

Has anyone had this tile for some time? How does it hold up? Is there any problem with the pattern wearing off?

Asked by: Kell27
We've had this tile installed in our mudroom for about a year. It's holding up very well, no wear at all and it is in the highest traffic and dirtiest room of our home since we live on a farm. Everyone who has come to our house has absolutely loved it, even the people who thought I was crazy for putting it in.

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.

Received a lot of cracked tiles initially. Installed less than two months ago and already have several chipped tiles and have had to replace four. Tile is a product that should last, this does not. I do not recommend this product.

Home Depot really priced this classic tile very well. The shipping experience was very easy and tiles were well protected. The coloring was a dark charcoal gray and blended well with the dark beige wall color and gold/gray granite countertop.
