About This Product

Drawing inspiration from artisan cement tiles, the Merola Tile Twenties Diamond Encaustic 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile exudes encaustic flair. Surrounded by contrasting charcoal and ash grey triangles, the centered off-white diamond features delicate grey freckling. These sharp angles create a prominent geometric pattern with a variety of arrangement capabilities. 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.

2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  We choose light grey

    A:  Hi! To best match the colors featured in this tile, we recommend Custom Building Products #165 Delorean Grey. It is important to note that grout color is a personal choice and can greatly impact the overall look of an installation. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

      Q:How is this floor cleaned?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi! Our Twenties Diamond is not hard to keep clean and like all of our products, is rather easy to maintain. Aside from soap and water, we also recommend using a neutral, non-acidic cleaner that is safe for everyday cleaning. A product that would fit into this category would be the Custom Building Products Grout and Tile Cleaner, which can found at the following link https://thd.co/2TMZvKx. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

        A:  It’s so hard to keep clean. I love the look but regret installing it in my kitchen because it always looks dirty.

          Q:The pictures show a pattern that requires two different tiles. Notice the black triangle, for example; some of the patterns create an arrowhead from each color. This is impossible to do with the tile unless there is a mirrored version of the tile. We ordered 16 boxes and all are the same. There is no option to select a "mirrored" or reversed box of tiles. Does anybody have an answer to this quandary?

          A:  Maybe all the responders should READ what I wrote. YES, you can do the 3D looking cubes, but you CANNOT do the below pattern. This is a picture from this website. The tiles in this image are MIRRORED. Unless there are mirrored tiles available, this pattern is IMPOSSIBLE to attain.

          by|Jan 21, 2020

            A:  i had no problem with the tile - it is made to look like a 3D illusion - you match the gray with the gray and the light gray with the light gray of each tile and it turns out in 3D- i did it on a fireplace and it is awesome

              A:  I believe it takes four tiles turned different ways to form the pattern you are looking for. Each tile is the same but when laying them together turn each one a quarter turn from the one next to it and a new pattern is formed.

              by|Jan 19, 2020

                A:  We installed this in our bathroom shower. You just have to turn the tiles to make the pattern you want. It’s like a puzzle or like an optical illusion! We had wanted the starburst pattern but didn’t have the room (would have had to cut too many tiles). Just lay them out like in the examples to see what you like/what will fit! I think this made a beautiful accent in our shower!

                by|Jan 20, 2020

                  A:  There is not a mirror image tile. You only need a single tile style to create a pattern. See the attached pic.

                  by|Jan 20, 2020

                    A:  Both below answers, although appreciated, do not address the issue. Yes, you can do the 3D looking pattern. But the pattern that shows black arrowhead and grey arrowhead is geometrically impossible. They shouldn't put a picture of a pattern on here that's impossible to achieve.

                      A:  Hi! Thank you for your feedback. Our Twenties Diamond is only available in a single print variation.

                              Used the tiles for a feature wall in my powder room. Arranged them in a multi-cube pattern rather than the classic '20's style for a modern look. Only gripe about the tiles was that there were quite a lot of them that were broken (suggesting careless handling of the boxes somewhere along the supply chain). Also, they're probably a little to thin for a floor application but they do work great on the wall.

                              This tile ended up looking great in my kitchen renovation, especially with the complementary bullnose tile. So far it's been easy to keep clean, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on the design and layout.

                                I purchased this tile for my half bath about a year ago. I absolutely love how great the design looks when several of the varieties of the Merola tiles are put together. Its the perfect tile to give a room a little something special, and the price is very fair, considering the designer look you can achieve.

                                    I've been a designer for over thirty years and when it came to selecting a tile for my newest project, I was struggling to make a decision. I wanted an encaustic tile with white gray and black tones but the expense and thickness of encaustic tile was a concern. This Merola Tile was an excellent compromise. The Twenties Diamond offers multiple options in pattern and looks very "high end" when installed. It installs easily and the print was very consistent. I highly recommend it!
