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.

Asked by Sue November 17, 2018

Answers

Hi Sue, The white in our Twenties Classic is more of an off-white, or a very light grey. Computer monitors have a tendency to portray colors either too warm or too cool in terms of tone. This makes judging whether the tile will suit your needs a bit more difficult. If you would like to determine if these tiles are right for you, we offer samples at the Home Depot! Twenties Classic is a unique situation where we offer a full tile sample https://thd.co/2EEQlvW. Please note that variation in color, shade and texture are inherent characteristics of glazed tile. The pattern, shape, dye lot (color) and size of the actual tile received may vary. Home Depot offers a 90-day return policy on all unused items returned in the full quantity they were sold. If you have any further questions, please give us a call at (800)-963-7652. Hope this helps!

Answers

We used ours as our shower surround and it is holding up fantastically. We used the schluter adonized aluminum trim edging (jolly) in a brushed black. It is perfect with it. The black isn’t super black and it is also super thin so it doesn’t detract or make it look super modern.

What white subway tile and black trim to border it would match this tile(finish,color,thickness)?

Asked by Lynn May 12, 2018
6
Answers

We used Schluter metal trim edging in a brushed black. The black in the tile is more like a charcoal, and I was unable to find anything else I liked as well. The tiles are also very thin, and matte, so finding a match is hard. Would look great with any subway. I matched mine with a large scale matte procelaine tile.

Do you use sanded or non sanded grout

Since this is a ceramic tile, we used sanded grout in a light gray color. It looks fabulous in my laundry room! Absolutely love this tile!

Has anyone used black grout on this tile and if so how do you like it? I only see it pictured with light grout. Thank you!

I used charcoal grout with it and almost disappears completely.

Has anyone experience a difference in color per dye lot?

Asked by Kat January 18, 2017

Answers

Yes. I ordered 20 boxes of the Merola tile, and the box shows they were manufactured by RECER. After reading the reviews, I expected them to vary in color from black to charcoal gray. What I got were 20 boxes of a LIGHT gray color. The gray is 2 shades lighter than the black/gray on the color scale provided online with the product. This is more than a "slight difference in color" as described in the responsive posting from Merola. This is an entirely different color. I don't know what happened, but I will be returning all of these. I am reluctant to re-order because I just don't know what I'm going to get. So disappointed.

Love, love, love these tiles. Only needed one box for backsplash behind stove and under new range hood. Looks fantastic! I rated excellent for ease of installation, but we didn't do it ourselves. Our contractor did after putting in range hood.

Recently remodeled a bathroom and this tile is perfect. Packaged very well not one chipped or broken tile. It is on the thinner side so when you cut go slow. I used charcoal grout at 1/8” set.
