    The tiles are gorgeous and came very well wrapped all the way to Canada. There were only a few chips in my two boxes, that i was able to switch out. The mesh is kind of flimsy, so reading someone else's review, i was prepared to add tile spacers to each little tile (kind of painstaking). I used it on a kitchen backsplash and it looks great. Had to use a wet tile saw to cut, don't even try a tile slicer as i had so much chipping of the porcelain (and I am used to cutting glass for stained glass).

    First off...I will tell you that this tile needs to be set by a professional. AND I highly recommend the glass bead grout for this tile. Once set, it is AMAZING!! However, for the cuts, you really need someone who knows what he or she is doing. This will require a wet saw, and precise measure. There is NO fudging of grout lines with this tile, the pattern is too intricate. Once a good tilesetter has it in place....you won't regret that you paid a professional to install it. It's fantastic.

  • Absolutely Beautiful
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this tile based on a photo in a design magazine. I have just redone my kitchen and it is all white. When the backsplash was installed the whole kitchen came together and it looks fabulous! The tile adds so much dimension. I really recommend a darker grout. We made a sample with white grout and you loose the dimension in the design. I used gray grout (medium) to pull together the ccounter tops and the white cabinets. It is perfect. The sheets of tile are larger that mrost tiles so we needed less than ordered and I have one full box to return. Cost to return is a little pricey but the initial price is excellent. Quite a savings from most outlets.. The packing was extrodinary and there was no damage when they were unpacked. Installation is tricky but worth the effort.

    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.

    These are the MOST BEAUTIFUL tiles I've ever seen. I bought them in the white for my master bathroom floor (not as slippery as you might think) and then loved them so much, re did a guest bath and ordered them in the terra cotta color with black trim and green floors-STUNNING! Very art deco looking and absolutely beautiful tiles ever.

  • Fantastic Tile!
    Verified Purchase

    I LOVE this tile. I only ordered one box (for my backsplash) and it arrived in perfect condition (it was packed really well). It looks just like the photo and the price was much cheaper than the same exact tile at other retailers.

  • Unbelievable price!
    Verified Purchase

    These tiles are incredible! The price is amazing. I ordered them for my kitchen back splash but I am going to go back and order more for my fireplace! They are very thin and delicate tho so if you aren't a professional installer I don't know that I would attempt to install them yourself.

  • AWESOME tile!
    Verified Purchase

    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 LOOKS so expensive and is exactly what I was looking for after seeing it on XXXXXXX! I would say that I thought that they tiles were a bit on the thin side, but other than that we had not problem w/ install and they look AMAZING!!!

  • Looks beautiful. Difficult to install.
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Cool Shape
    Verified Purchase

    Thinner than expected but a very unique shape and a lot less that the same that Home Depot sells. I returned most as it was going on the shower walls but the old cast iron tub was not the same white. This tile is very white. The thickness is about 1/2 of what I expected but it says it can work for the floor so I'm putting this in my laundry room floor in my 1940's house.

  • Classy, Unique but a little difficult to install
    Verified Purchase

    We ordered 15 boxes of these beautiful lantern tiles. They arrived on a pallet and all boxes seem to be in good condition. Our tile guy is currently installing the tile in our bathroom (floor the ceiling, entire room) and the tile looks STUNNING! Couple of things the tile guy mentioned ... tiles are very thin. So thin that we had to have our plumbers return to move the rough in valve on the shower in closer to the wall otherwise the tiles were slipping right underneath it. Also, the plastic mesh backing on the tiles is not very sturdy and the sheets of tile are continually sagging, which is causing our tile guy huge headaches. He now has to use spacers between EACH tile, all the way around, so that the tiles stay in place. This has definitely slowed down our project tremendously. We're just glad we're not paying him by the hour, haha. That being said, I'm very happy with the look of the tile and would definitely purchase them again. Buy with confidence, but now you know if you are using them in a large application such as I am instead of a small area (like a backsplash) -- plan accordingly. LOVE THESE TILES!

  • Better than expected!
    Verified Purchase

    Hello there, We just received our tile order yesterday and one, could not believe how fast it appeared at our front door and two, the tiles are beautiful! In the photo they look great but in person they are so much better. We love them and recommend you grab some before they are gone. Once again we love overstock, without it, we would never be able to afford our renovation.

  • Amazing Unique Understated Tile
    Verified Purchase

    I love this tile! each tile, not the 12x12 sheet is bigger than most mosaic sheets. It is a great look and value, goes with everthing and lends an organic feel to a room. It is a nice option to many of the square class or ceramic options out there. some sheets do have one tile with a slight chip in it, but that is easily taken out and replaced with another one from a different sheet. I have already installed this and ordered more for another job!

    Had some breakage in shipping but not too bad. As other reviewers have mentioned, Overstock has done a good job with the bubble wrap. Tile itself is really nice looking, so a few broken tiles was worth it. I'm using it as a kitchen back splash. Have not put it up yet, so I can't comment on ease of installation.

  • Good value - unique look
    Verified Purchase

    I needed a tile to soften the look of my new kitchen, so I ordered these to use for my backsplash. They give my kitchen a stylish, spendy look, but the price was so reasonable! Also, they defy today's trends toward subway or glass tiles. Since they're different, I think my kitchen won't look as dated as soon.

  • Gorgeous!
    Verified Purchase

    These tiles are gorgeous! I LOVE them. I ordered 4 boxes on faith from recent reviews that the shipping/breakage problem had been resolved. I believe it has been. None of the tiles were broken or cracked. Lots of bubble wrap and ties. However, they are fragile. So when unpacking, handle with care! The color is a very rich, warm white. The glaze variation is very subtle, but looks fantastic. We haven't yet installed them. But I laid 4 sheets out on the floor and they looked so pretty! I am so excited!! I am so happy I found these! So much more character than the plain hexagon ones I almost went with. If only I could get them installed as fast as overstock delivered!!

  • Super Cool Tile
    Verified Purchase

    When the tile arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find that NONE of the tile cracked during the shipping process. Whether you use a light white grout or highlight the shape of the tiles with a dark grey grout, you can't go wrong. It looks fabulous as the backsplash in our kitchen and laundry room.

    I have been looking for a tile like this for a while! I was in love with a design similar to this by Walker Zanger - but it just wasn't in my budget to spend $2000 on a backsplash for my kitchen. This tile from Overstock is simply STUNNING. A few were broken in the boxes, but easily replaced and the tile just makes such a fabulous statement. It's beautiful and this girl is highly recommending it.
