What size/type trowel do you use with this tile for the floor?

Asked by Laurie December 1, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Laurie, For our Twenties Crest, you will want to use a 1/4” square notch trowel. When selecting a trowel, you need to be sure that it is recommended for use with a tile that size. You can find a trowel like this at the Home Depot! If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Is this tile suitable for flooring? How many tiles do I need for 62 square feet

Asked by FM March 30, 2018

Answers

We used it on a bathroom floor and it seems to work fine. We had a professional install it so it would match the height of the floor in the adjoining hallway. I had someone at the local Home Depot figure out how many tiles it would take for the size of the bathroom, they have calculators there that they used.

Do you sell by the case how much sq footage per case how much per case

Answers

These are sold individually. I calculated the square footage of the area to tile and ordered the number of tiles, plus a few extra, to cover the area. The order was shipped in 25 count boxes. I'm assuming they try not to exceed that many per box.

My tile guy said the same at first glance, but was impressed by the end of installation. I put it in the bathroom in June and I have been very pleased. Only draw back is that it looks dirty really fast. Must constantly mop.

Does this tile fade? I would like to use it on a outdoor deck with full sun.

Asked by Marcie October 3, 2017

Answer

Hi Marcie, No, this tile will not fade outdoors overtime when it is exposed to direct sunlight. This tile has a glazed surface that will help prevent fading. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

We have a 33 square feet area how many tiles would I need

Asked by Booper May 30, 2017

Answers

The answer will depend on where you start the pattern for the tile. I purchased 16 of the tiles so I could lay them out and determine where to start. Once decided, I could then calculate the number needed to cover the floor.

I have this tile and I am using it on the floor but need a coordinating wall tile with it. Can you send me those please?

Asked by Marsbar May 29, 2017

Answer

Good Afternoon, Depending on the look that you are aiming to achieve, you can use any of the three plain field tiles in the Twenties series to coordinate with this tile. The Twenties series http://thd.co/2aMqOx3 has a variety of patterned options such as the Crest, as well as three field options, including Twenties White, Grey and Black. These colors coordinate with the colors within the design on the Twenties Crest, so you can decide which of the three work best for your project. The link provided also has coordinating bullnose pieces that are available in each of these three colors, so you can have a finishing edge if you did not carry the tile up the whole wall. Just as a note, the Twenties Black is the darkest, which could make the room appear smaller, and the Twenties White may help the room feel larger, so that is something to consider when making a decision. We sell all of these items by the each, so if you wanted to see them all together prior to making a large purchase you could order one of each. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity that they are sold (for these, by the each). If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Thanks for your interest in our products!

Would this tile work as a shower floor or would it be too slippery?

Asked by Curious May 11, 2017
1
Answer

Good Afternoon, This tile is great for a shower floor! This tile is a PEI 3, so it is plenty durable for this location. This tile is glazed, so water will not absorb into the glazed surface. With a marginal skid resistance, this tile is safe for normal shower use, and the grout lines will help add further slip resistance. We have seen many customers install products from our whole Twenties line with much success. If you have any further questions, give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

The tiles do not reveal their full beauty until assembled. These are breathtakingly gorgeous, revealing alternately white and black flowers similar to dogwood. It is much more unusual than more typical patterns. I am using it with other black and white tiles to maximize the impact. A true Art Deco experience! I cannot imagine you would be disappointed.

Absolutely beautiful! Easy to install and cut. I would recommend ordering 15%-20% more tile than square footage. You’ll need to account for the extra cuts to complete the pattern correctly. For the price you can’t beat the quality and style!
