I used these tiles as a decorative border in my bathroom renovation. I bought one box of 10 and cut them in half with a wet saw. The problem is as soon as it becomes wet, the mesh backing, which is flimsy to begin with, becomes unglued and the tiles all fall off very easily. The advantage to hand-piecing them was that I was able to use spacers and lay them properly, which turned out nicer than they would have if I installed them on the sheet (they are not spaced evenly; some touch, and some are wide apart). Of course, doing this took 6 hours to lay just 6 square feet. My field tile was 2x4 subway tiles on 12x12 sheets, and they had good rubber spacers which did not come off as I tiled, and they cost less than 25% of what these cost. All told, the resulting look was gorgeous, and I am very pleased, but I think for the money, SomerTile could afford to put decent spacers on the tile, or at least a reliable mesh backing.Read More

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.
Tips on Cleaning Bathroom Tiles
Bathroom tile is a classic, durable and practical choice for bathroom flooring and wall coverings, but even the most low-maintenance choices require some care and cleaning. If not cared for properly and regularly, bathroom tile can begin to accumulate soap deposits and even mildew, mold and bacteria. Clean bathroom tile at least once per week with some high-quality cleaning supplies, scrubbers and other cleaning equipment to protect the tile and keep it looking clean and new.
How to Install a Tile Backsplash in the Bathroom

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. Shop Tiles ▸ 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. Shop Tiles See All Guides
