We installed the tile last weekend. It looks beautiful, but it was very difficult to install. While on mesh, we found that they were not uniformly spaced. Given the tile shape, it was very time consuming to cut around outlets and switches. It took close to 20 hours to lay the tile backsplash in our small kitchen. I'm glad we didn't know how difficult installation would have been or we probably would have chosen another tile.
In the original shipment, some tile sheets had damaged tile (from shipping presumably). Overstock was great about sending replacement sheets.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
This tile has a slight gray/white tinge. I used a more almond color grout to pull in a more creamy color to the tile... but that was just for my kitchen. This is a FABULOUS price....even IF I had to order more than needed for my kitchen!!!
Came quickly and had no broken tiles!
Also, I don't think it mentions it in the description...but the tiles are ALMOST a 1/4 of an inch thick... or maybe I should say thin! In case you are looking for accent or trim pieces.

This tile is gorgeous and looked amazing once it was installed. However, one huge word of caution before installing - DO NOT use this tile with a wet saw, or the netting dissolves and the tiles all fall off - we learned this the hard way. Once we got a method down without using the wet saw, it looked absolutely beautiful and was still a great value.

No tiles were broken upon arrival, all were intact and attached to their mesh backings. These were purchased for a small bath renovation, to be used as border tiles in conjunction with subway tile. As another reviewer had written, yes, some tiles are very slightly misaligned, and as yet another reviewer wrote, the backing is flimsy and does present a problem while being hung vertically, but it's not impossible, and with a little care and a lot of spacers, it can be done. That said, it is a very beautiful tile, and worth the extra effort. Each tile does have MINOR imperfections (pitting, etc) that is typical of glazed porcelain, and lends a time-worn feel without looking "old", which I liked. We cut these sheets in half to use as a 6-inch border, which then gave us 25 linear feet to work with, and it looks great with our grey grout. Doing this made the project look very upscale while still remaining budget-friendly. Beautifully compliments the shape of our American Standard Retrospect pedestal sink and toilet. These are high-gloss tiles, and probably not ideal for bathroom or shower floors (a powder room, perhaps), as they can be slick when wet. As for color, they are not a glaring, ultra bright white, but rather a soft, solid white that closely matched the rest of the budge-friendly ceramic tile we selected from the "blue store". Once grouted, the slight color difference became completely undetectable. One thing I noticed was that in the online photo, the tiles appear to have a 3-D, slightly raised lip along the perimeters, but in fact, the the tiles were perfectly flat upon hands-on inspection, which, I imagine, also makes them easier to cut. Even for the small amount of tile we bought, it added just enough pizzazz to make the entire project look like it cost much more than it actually did.

Ordered these tiles to be installed in a renovation project that is currently underway. While they have not been installed as of this posting, we are looking forward to having them in the powder room of our home.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was very close -- as close as one could expect from a computer image. It is not a bright white; more of a creamy white.

This tile itself is beautiful, however it is not evenly spaced on the sheets that it comes in. It's not very obvious before it's mounted, but it becomes very obvious once it's installed especially if you use dark grout. Since the tiles aren't even spaced on the mesh, the sheets themselves don't match up well each other creating even more spacing issues. Unless you are willing to cut the tile free of their mesh backing and install each of them individually (or pay someone to do this for you), I wouldn't recommend buying this tile.
I ordered 7 cases of this tile for our kitchen remodel, and we had none of the problems that some other reviewers mentioned... no broken tiles, no mis-spaced tiles,,no problem with installation, and they are beautiful! The tile guys kept commenting all day during the installation how nice the tile is. I almost didn't order these BUT I'm so glad I did (I ordered from a different sight and cancelled because I got an extra box and my total cost at overstock still saved me $80 off the cost of 6 cases at another site...and the shipping was free and fast)! Don't hesitate!
Hello jgm09, These tiles are not recommended for shower floors. They are designed for normal traffic and will become slick when wet. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 10, 2013
I have this in my kitchen as the backsplash, but it is easy to clean and I would think it would work in a shower just fine, but you might want something a bit textured to prevent slipping. This tile is very smoothprayme on Feb 6, 2014
Hi, is this tile white white, or off white I'm also wondering if it is the same color as the mat version, if not, how is it different?

These are more of an off white compared to the matte tiles. The matte tiles are more of a bright white.
Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 14, 2013
I have this tile in my kitchen and I would say it is a true white,not bone or creamy white at all.prayme on Dec 2, 2013
They have a grey undertone and are not at all bright white. They perfectly match the paint color by Jeff Lewis called "Sky".plumquot on Jan 4, 2014

Is this tile suitable for a small bathroom floor installation? Is it through body porcelain or ceramic tile?gculver5 on May 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
That product is suitable for certain floor applications, however, we do not recommend it for use on a bathroom floor. It has a P.E.I. rating of 3 which is for medium-duty floor applications, not including bathroom floors. It is glazed so it is not very skid/slip resistant. It is a glazed porcelain mosaic.
Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on May 11, 2012
