can i install this product on the floor of my client's patio
Everyone who comes Ito our home is impressed with these tiles. They are a feature in our kitchen and match our stainless appliances. If there were any critical comments that I would have it would be on the installation. The tiles are stainless on porcelain. They are very difficult to cut as they are small. The stainless pulls back or bends when cut and creates an uneven edge. You need to be extremely careful and these are expensive tiles to throw away because of bad cuts. My installer will probably decline anyone else's project that include these tiles....

I looked and looked for just the right tiles for our modern kitchen renovation, but I always came back to these stainless subway tiles. I am happy to report that my "gut" was right. We could not be happier with the finished product. Our contractor was impressed by the quality and pricing. He installed them on two walls between the quartz counters and new cabinets. Everyone who visits remarks about the stunning finishing touch these tiles provide. Best of all, they do NOT water spot and are a breeze to keep clean. (That was my biggest worry.) They are especially nice with the undercounted lighting, as the tiles reflect the light. THANK YOU, Overstock. Oh -- and we needed to order an additional box, but it matched the previous shipment perfectly.Read More
It is shiny and beautiful, but not so much bling that it is gawdy. It is an amazing compliment to my new white quartz countertops and makes my kitchen the centerpiece of the home. We also used it as a trim for our fireplace and it works well there, as well as bathroom backsplash. A great find and decorative accent.Read More
dont have them put up yet but they look awesome! My tile guy even likes them even tho not ordered from his company.Read More
Had the carpenter put them behind stove vent . They look awesome.Read More
I just wrote a long review... and went to submit it and it returned me to the login page.... bummer. Don't really feel like writing it all again.... But will say this.... these tiles are awesome and my kitchen looks incredible. Local installer quoted us $1200 for the tiles to do this job (did not included installation). With all the materials, including the $50 rental of the wet saw and new gray outlets and stainless steel outlet covers.... we have spent about $460 on the entire project. We called the manufacture to get their recommended cutting instructions - cut tile from the back, not stainless side - use metal file to smooth edges of stainless steel. It looks amazing, I am so excited and grateful that my husband is brilliant and was able to do such a wonderful job installing these. Oh ... and I wanted to mention that I ordered these on a Sunday..... and they arrived on Wednesday.... 70 lbs of tiles shipped in two days for $2.95 .... that is amazing!!!! Thanks for the wonderful update to my kitchen Overstock... it looks like a million bucks!!!!Read More
Had been looking for something in stainless for a portion of the kitchen back splash. Came across this and Whoo Hoo it was just what I was looking for. read the reviews and was sold. Have not installed at this time. Love the look of the tile. I will be installing it along with a glass tile in the same size. Have mocked up and am very happy. The stainless tile is not full stainless, it is ceramic with a stainless overlay, very nice. Very excited about this tile. I can't believe that I found it here, for such a great price and such low shipping. Overstock you rule!Read More
These tiles brightened up my whole bar area. Under counter lighting reflecs great off the tiles lightening the work space. I love my tiles. Only bad thing, they tiles are a bear to cut. Metal bends and is very tough to cut straight. The glue also came off a few tiles but a drop of Super glue and they were good as new.Read More
I used this tile as my backsplash in my remodeled kitchen which is black, cherry wood and stainless steel. The universal comment from everyone who enters is WOW! People absolutely love it!! My tiler who runs a granite shop was so impressed with this tile, he took a sheet home to check whether it would work with his decor'. It was very easy to install and it sets off all the stainless I have in the kitchen. When the tiler began installing I was afraid it would overwhelm the rest of the elements in my kitchen, but happily I was wrong. It adds a nice counter-point to the black cabinets, black granite, antiqued black island with Saturnia granite (which has a lot of silver, gray and crystal). The price was half what my local tile store sold a smilar tile. It cleans up easily with just a damp cloth. I initially cleaned it with stainless steel cleaner which gave it a very nice sheen. It is definitely the finishing touch of my $$$$ kitchen renovation.Read More
I love the look of the tile. It is very sharp but not a "cold" look at all. The brick pattern on the tile is very pleasing and the light shines off of it in different directions which is very pretty. I am redoing my entire kitchen and the contractor installe dthe tile. They installed the first few sheets and needed to take them down and strt over, because the sheets were not similar. One sheet of tile had a different size gap between tiles than the other, and it was farily noticeable. It seems that only a few sheets were like this, so fortunatley we had enough to do the whole backsplash.Read More

Porcelain Tiles vs Ceramic Tiles
Tile is a building material known for its durability, moisture resistance and low maintenance requirements. Tile is often used in kitchens and bathrooms but is fairly versatile and can be used in a wide variety of applications, such as countertops, backsplashes and decorative wall coverings. The most common types of tile are porcelain and ceramic. Each offers distinct benefits and drawbacks that should be considered before making a purchase decision.
How to Tile an Accent Wall

You can create a real sense of personalization and customization on any wall with your own tile wall coverings. In fact, if you tile the wall yourself, you will be saving hundreds of dollars in money that you would otherwise be paying someone else.
Tips on Removing Kitchen Tiles
Kitchen tiles, frequently installed as a backsplash behind a kitchen counter or stove, provide a water-resistant and easily-washable surface. While tile is a long-term decorative feature in most kitchens, you may want to remove wall tiles if you update your cabinets or remodel your kitchen. The adhesive used to install wall tiles forms a strong bond, so it may take some time and effort to remove. Here are some tips for preparing the wall for the application of new kitchen wall tile.
How to Choose Tile for a Shower
Shower tiles serve two functions: They add to a bathroom's decor, and they protect the drywall underneath from moisture. There is no limit to how you can use wall tiles, from borders to shower murals. What you choose will depend on several factors, including your color scheme, the material used for the tile, and maintenance in the future. These tips will help you narrow down your choices as you shop for tile for a shower.

Best Types of Tile for Kitchen Countertops
Tile kitchen countertops are an affordable alternative to traditional solid stone units. Countertop tile can be made from many of the most popular materials, such as granite or quartz, yet costs just a fraction of the price. Tile countertops are also easy to install and repair, making them the perfect project for the DIY homeowner. Ceramic. Ceramic tile is made from natural clay that is baked to remove excess moisture. It is available in a wide variety of colors and designs that can be mixed and matched to any kitchen. Ceramic tile is affordable, easy to install and very low maintenance. It is also waterproof and able to withstand high temperatures from hot dishes. If you choose ceramic tile for your kitchen countertops, you should be aware that ceramic tile can crack or chip if heavy objects are dropped on it. To minimize grout stains, you can choose a dark grout and use a grout sealer to protect the seams from dirt. Mosaic. Mosaic tile comes in tiny 1-inch square units. It is often sold in large sheets that are attached to a mesh backer-board, making for easy and fast installation. These tiles can be mixed to create unique patterns and textures, and are very durable. One advantage of mosaic tiles is that they are colored all the way through, so a chip or crack will not be as visible as with ceramic tile. Granite. Granite tile is a natural stone product that is widely popular in kitchen decor. Tiles made from granite offer the beauty of natural stone at a fraction of the cost. Granite tiles often have a mottled surface that helps to hide dirt and fingerprints and are incredibly strong and long-lasting. Like all granite products, these tiles must be sealed after installation and at least once a year for the duration of their use. Quartz. Quartz tile is a manufactured product designed to look similar to granite while offering superior performance. It is made from crushed quartz crystals pressed together with resin. Quartz tile has a smooth and uniform surface with a consistent grain. It is slightly less expensive than granite and is much more durable and long-lasting. Unlike granite, quartz tiles do not need to be sealed. They are completely nonporous, which prevents bacteria from becoming trapped in the surface. Quartz cannot be repaired as easily as granite, however, and it offers none of the natural beauty and color variation of real stone. View All Tile Back to Guides Directory View All Tile
