Answer This Question

A:  I don’t think it was really shiny glazed so much. I was hoping it to be but it didn’t.

by|May 5, 2023

    A:  Thank you for your interest in the MSI Carrara Glazed Porcelain Tile. This tile is a glazed tile so it is considered more of a matte finish. Good luck with your project!

    by|May 5, 2023

      A:  Yes, it comes in both a polished and a matte finish. We did a large master bath with the matte, to reduce water spot appearance and a smaller bath with the polished.

      by|May 5, 2023

        A:  It is a Matt finish, not glossy at all.

              Q:Is the background color of this tile white (near white) or pale gray? Is the background color pretty consistent ?

              A:  Thank you for your interest in the MSI Carrara Tile. The tile is a white tile with gray veining. There is some variance and some pieces that may have more gray than others however, if you ensure that you purchase all the tile you need for your project at once they should come from the same batch and therefore have less variance. Good luck with your project!

              by|May 5, 2023

                A:  I would say it’s a light gray and consistent.

                  A:  I would consider it a white background with gray veins throughout, but it is not a bright white. I would consider the background pretty consistent.

                            Q:Can this Tile be used on and a 2nd floor bathroom over the wood sub floor? Or does it require a backer board?

                            A:  I am not knowledgeable about construction but I have remodeled a few bathrooms and would recommend securing your new tile floor to concrete board so that it stays on solid.

                            by|May 5, 2023

                              A:  Any time you want to use tile you should have the strongest/sturdiest subfloor one can have. It will keep the tile stable so the subfloor does not flex causing the tile or grout to crack. I believe a backer board is in order here. If you don't want to this route, you could consider a vinyl waterproof tile that is flexible and could be done without additional subflooring.

                              by|May 5, 2023

                                A:  Thank you for your interest in the MSI Carrara Porcelain Tile. It is always suggested to use a backboard when installing tile for added security. Best of luck with your project!

                                  Q:Can this tile be bullnosed?

                                  Answer This Question

                                  A:  I didn't know there was a process to do that, especially not a DYI one. I don't think it could be done because this is not a solid color tile. It has a colored porcelain top coat with a clay base. I did cut some triangular pieces to use a corner shelves in my shower. I thought I would paint the edges white eventually somehow. In the end, I think the base color that is exposed is similar enough to my grout that I have just left it as is. As for the bull nose, I did find a very similar bull nose tile that I used from the Tile Shop. It is a little different shade of white. The veining matches pretty good. I bought a small gray glass and marble mat tile that I cut to separate the bull nose from the 12x24 tile so the color difference is less noticeable when placed on the same plane. I have added a picture to show the corner shelf with the dark edge. At the bottom right of the picture, you can see the smaller pieces that I used for accent and separator when needed. Since this bullnose was on a corner, I did let it abut the base tile. The difference in color is not as stark as shown in this picture. I believe this difference is caused by the lighting and the angles of the tiles. I did mention the SKU number for the Tile Shop in an earlier response to someone else's question. I don't have it handy now, so try to find it in the questions above.

                                    A:  No, this model does not have a matching bull-nosed trim.

                                    by|May 5, 2023

                                      A:  Thank you for your inquiry on the MSI Carrara Porcelain Tile. If you are interested in having this tile bullnosed please contact your contractor or installer to consult with them regarding this process. We do offer a corresponding bullnose piece for this collection.

                                                  A:  Glazed finished used only for wall. Used matt finish (less slippy) for floor. Same color, different finishes

                                                  by|May 5, 2023

                                                    A:  The matte finish should be fine. There is a slight texture to it. I put an absorbent bath mat when you first step out of the shower, but after that it should be fine. I would not use the polished version on the floor. I have it on the walls and the floors in two bathrooms and it is great.

                                                            A:  We did not find any other size of tile. We did find a matt bullnose trim piece at The Tile Shop that is very close in style and color. SKU#484121 Carrara Matt Trim 5x30x.98 TR0655 It costs more than twice the tile though (about $5 each). I used a small grey glass and marble mosaic tile matt to lay a line or two between the carrara wall tile and the bull nose so the slight color difference wasn't as noticeable (I did not let the two butt up to each other) I think it looks great and my tile guy did a great job working it in.
