About This Product

Inspired by artisan cement tiles, our Twenties Vertex 7-3/4 in. x 7-3/4 in. Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile captures the look of authentic encaustic tiles with a versatile ceramic body. This square tile features geometric patterns in charcoal black tones. Set on a snow white base glaze, the contrasting design features a weathered, speckled look, replicating the beauty of Spanish design and offering a unique blend of old-world style and modern appeal. This visually rich floor and wall tile can blend into virtually any design theme, ranging from contemporary projects to traditional installations. Its durable and frost-resistant features make this an ideal choice for indoor and outdoor installations including kitchens, bathrooms, backsplashes, showers, entryways, patios and fireplace facades. It is a perfect choice on its own or paired with other product in the Twenties Collection. Tile is the better choice for your space. This tile is made from natural ingredients, making it a healthy choice as it is free from allergens, VOCs, formaldehyde and PVC.

      Q:What kind of sealant should I use
      by|May 25, 2020

      Answer This Question

      A:  This is a glazed tile. So, it doesn't need a sealer. If you are referring to grout, it would depend on the width of the grout joint. I used a premium rapid-setting grout with aggregate. As far as caulk/sealant, see if the grout manufacturer makes one to match the grout. Happy Tiling!

      by|May 27, 2020

        A:  Hi! Sealing our Twenties Vertex is not required. This product has a glazed surface that is easy to maintain, thus choosing to seal this tile is a matter of personal preference. However, it is important to note that while glazed tile does not need to be sealed, the grout may need to be depending on your installation. We recommend referring to the manufacturer instructions for the grout you chose. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

        by|May 29, 2020

          A:  even though this is a low sheen it is still just a ceramic tile which does not need to be sealed - ever. You need to seal the grout and for that I can say from experience that the more you spend the less often you have to seal the grout. Tile Labs most expensive one at HomeDepot is good and will last a few years (3) depending on traffic and cleaning.

            Q:I'm bought the Vertex design tile for a bathroom floor. Can this tile also be used in the bottom of a shower to tile the pan, or is it too large for a sloping floor? Is it too slippery to use in the shower pan?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Hi, Zelda! It would depend on the size of your shower and the location of your drain. According to the TCNA, your floor needs to be sloped ¼” per foot. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652.

            by|Jan 28, 2019

              A:  No, these tiles are beautiful for the floor or walls. I think if you place them on the bottom of the shower would be to dark. They are smooth but no slippery.

                  These are beautiful! Definitely a matte finish and more of a dark charcoal color than true black. We installed using the recommended 1/4" spacing, used spacers, and charcoal grout. Home Depot customer service was great about refunding for the box that broke in transit. Love it!

                    Black and white tile is a new favorite trend. It's both classic and modern while adding an extra flair that's not too overdone. We used it to create a bold statement in a bathroom and mud room. It would also be great in a laundry room. The Merola Twenties tile is one of our favorite black and white tiles in a low price option! We had professionally installed. It is gorgeous!

                      We used these around our fireplace surround and they look great! They are a cement tile "knock-off" so the color is not as intense as I was hoping. The black is more dark grey, and the image looks printed on the tile. These are a great value, and it's a perfect tile to add interest to any room.

                      LOVE these tiles!
                      LOVE LOVE LOVE these tiles. We used them for a Miami condo renovation and they totally made the kitchen. There are a few different black and white patterns in this line and I'll definitely be using one of them again. They would also work for a kitchen backsplash or bathroom floor.

                      Beautiful tiles, incredible price.
                      I used a small number of these tiles as a backsplash behind a bathroom sink. Love the design. Easy to install.

                      Too Cute
                      I have a rental with a very small kitchen, so I thought this tile would give it some pazazz. It turned out better than expected, the tile was easy to cut, I used the 7" wet saw. My only problem was determining how many tiles I would need as they are not 12*12. These tile are 73/4 by 73/4. I had to order more, but please with how it turned out.

                      Product is great! Sample arrived in timely fashion. Too bad it was out of stock for up to 2 months when we tried to place our order. So we had to settle for 2nd choice. Can’t give an “Excellent” rating to a product we loved but can’t buy.
