I'd mostly like to make this comment to the buyer/reviewer who doesn't like their "grout wall". I too have a "grout wall" shower surround thanks to my contractor/tile sub installing it INCORRECTLY!!! and I most likely will rip mine out eventually too. It is NOT a product problem! Installing pebble tile is a more labor intensive process than other mosaic tiles. I ended up doing the grout work on my other two shower stalls myself (new home construction with 3 baths). My tile guy did it WRONG and it's awful. It takes a soft/spongey grout float to push the grout into and behind the pebble spaces, then loads of pushing, squishing it back with that spongey float, then a wallpaper brush to brush away much of the wet grout, only THEN using a finishing sponge to press away the stratches made in the wet grout by the brush. So a 2-3 step grout prcess becomes a 5-6 step process grouting pebble tile - at least in MY personal experience. But I know it's possible as my other shower stall pebbles look amazing. "Pebble walls" with grout, not "grout walls" with "peek-a-boo pebble faces". This product does end up showing the 12" squares the tiles are made into, as they do/did not have "interlocking edges". As long as there isn't too much grout in the first place, those lines look fine. And the advantage is that the outer edges (against the floor/tub/stall edge) are straight and not scalloped.
Tiles were delivered in a timely fashion, i.e. got here before the contractor started work. They were exactly as pictured.
The stone variation is just what I wanted, as I am a lover of 'natural' polished riverstone... they are so popular that a little 3 year old visitor came while we were "dry fitting" the tile and laid down in the shower and proclaimed them "nice rocks" ... they are a hit all around and better than anything I found in the large home improvements stores in our town.
Love the look, it's all up and just waiting to pick my paint color then the grout color. It is very nice and my tile guy said it worked fine. It looks beautiful. I ordered two boxes and only used one,,,my daughter liked them so much I'm going to give her the other box for Easter!!!
I've received samples from several sources, thinking that they were the perfect rocks to accent my bathroom tiling project. None of them were suitable - too big, too fat, too dark, etc. These mosaics are not only perfect for my purposes - they're very cost effective too! And free shipping - arriving on the 4th day after my order. Overstock rocks! (pun intended :)
This is a really cool product. It is a 3D tile and if you are interested in something different for you home this is definitely something you should look into. Couldn't be happier and very easy to install

One person said the stones are brown tones and another person said the stones were mostly grey and white no brown tones. So I am wondering which one it is.birdmania on Aug 28, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Are these slippery underfoot if used in a shower stall? Thank you!ebjo on Mar 18, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm using them on the wall, but while they are smooth and would feel good underfoot, I don't think they would be slippery at all, and they would be really beautiful.alex3907 on Mar 20, 2014
Thank you for your question judyj90. The SomerTile 12x12-in Riverbed Multi Natural Stone Mosaic Tile does not need to be sealed as these are natural stones. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 7, 2013
What product to I use to put this down on our bathroom floor. The thin set bag says to not use it on resin backed stone. Thank you.pavo2 on Sep 29, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
