I'm very pleased with the color. It's a crisp true white, since it was a special order I wasn't sure it was going to be the white I wanted but it's not almondy at all, if anything it's got a very subtle gray tone. The store only carried a creamy off white that wasn't bright enough for me. This tile is not notched for ease of installation like some tile, will require spacers but I think will be beautiful when installed.
this is the crisp white subway field tile that is whiter than the home depot retail store subway tile. bad news is that matching pencil and chair rail accents can only be special ordered from a daltile distributor. love how it looks.
Pros: Looks Great, Looks High End
Cons: matching accent tile not available from home depot
I only gave this 4 stars because the shipment came with one box of the snow white, which is not as white as the arctic. It's a different color, but my tile guy used it and we had to chip all those pieces out.
Make sure everything is ARCTIC white. Snow is a little more eggshell.
I had the tiles delivered to my door and was pleasantly surprised that not one of the 200 tile's broke.
The color was as expected.
I have never installed tile before and am happy to say I really is as easy to cut and install as they show on T.V.

The first order of these tiles we received were manufactured in Mexico. They were packed front-to-back without any protection and during shipping many of the tiles were scratched with approximately 30-40% being bad enough to be unusable. We ordered additional tiles, and this shipment was manufactured in the US. These tiles were not scratched, but they had a subtlety different surface texture with small imperfections. We used them on separate wall segments so it turned out OK, but it may have been noticeable if they had been directly next to the Mexican made tiles. We shouldn't have to pick through tiles to find acceptable pieces.
These tiles were easy to install thanks largely to the self spacing feature, and are the brightest white that I found. They cut easily; didn't experience much breakage when using my wet tile saw and even intricate "U" cuts came out nice. Only issue is that cut edges seem to have some pitting/tiny chipping on the glossy surface which doesn't look great when grouted. Might not be the tile's fault... perhaps saw blade is the culprit?? Just wish the cut edges came out a little cleaner. They look great installed and are were an excellent price. Lastly... could have been packaged a little better (and/or handled with more care upon delivery).... One of the boxes that I bought was more than 50% damaged. Multiple chipped corners on more than half of the tiles, and some were literally broken in half. Was able to salvage some for my cuts, but ended up with more waste that I would have liked. Too bad these aren't carried in store!

Ordered 2 cases of this tile to do a back splash in my kitchen. Went up with no issues at all, the colors between the 2 cases were uniform, and only 3 tiles arrived with the corner chipped. Just FYI though this tile does not come with the little tabs, so you will need spacers. Overall I'm very pleased with the results.
First, this is the whitest of the whites for Daltile Rittenhouse Square. The regular white carried in stock has more of a yellowish hue compared to this tile.
I chose the ship to store method and all product came in pretty much unscathed. It did take a while to come in, so be prepared for a wait.
