     Old-world European elegance radiates from the SomerTile 17.63x17.63-inch Royals Estrella Nero Ceramic Floor and Wall Tile, imported from Spain. Save time and labor spent arranging smaller square tiles and instead install these durable ceramic slabs, which have four 8-3/4 in. squares separated by scored grout lines. The defining feature of this encaustic-inspired tile is the unique, low-sheen glaze in beige tones with centered black stars in each square. Variation throughout each tile mimics an authentic aged appearance. Designed by interior architect and furniture designer Francisco Segarra, this tile is a true reflection of vintage industrial design. Realistic imitations of scuffs and spots that are the marks of well-loved, worn, century-old tile bring rustic charm to your interior. These rustic scuffs and spots convince that this tile is truly aged. There are 9 different variations available that are randomly scattered throughout each case. The scored grout lines can be grouted with the color of your choice, or left ungrouted for a rugged finish.

      I love this tile. It looks old and worn. It looks a bit dirty. The tiles are printed with a photo image so even ordering in several shipments the tiles are the same. One of the images has a brown spot that looked too dirty even for me. I kept those aside and used for cut of hidden tiles. Otherwise I love it. Picture of tile as my cabinets are being installed. IMPORTANT: Each tile looks like 4 tiles. There is a groove for grouting between the "four" tiles. I was told by Floor and Decor guy and my contractor and reviews online that I had to use terracotta color grout to match these grooves. NOT TRUE. The manufacturer says the groove is there so that you can choose your own grout color. I mixed up a dark gray. The groove fills beautifully and doesn't chip out. Terracotta grout would look so bad it would not be worth buying the tile. pics of before and after grout. Messy edges are part of the tile image

      Don’t pass this one up !!! Starting from packaging to delivery I haven’t been that customer to have much luck but NOT THIS TIME YAY! So much pride goes into the making of this tile all the way to packaging. I can not say enough good things about this tile ! It is an 17.63 x 17.63 but 4 8x8 tiles are within this larger tile. Our home is built in 1885 and I wanted to stay away from subway tile just couldn’t find the right one, and I wanted to be a bit outside the box . This tile does that . Its look of “older” tile reminds me of tile you’d see while visiting a mansion so unique . We have never done tile work before but the material is made so well cutting with a wet saw made perfect rips and cuts . Even around the outlets. There is mention of the “staining” I think adds to its charm and what I did was space it out . The tiles come packed in boxes of 4 so it gives you that option to change it around . We just installed mineral soap stone counter tops and painted the cabinets white and grey. I’ll include photos although we have to grout so the tape is to hold in place and protect counter tops. I will be ordering another box to follow the look into my laundry room ! Don’t pass this one by you’ll love it! Colors are very muted black, grey, we called the “stained “ area tea and coffee stain to identify the color, beige griege look . PS I had just ordered the tile and was watching the show Bull and I wasn’t sure if these tiles would look to big as a back splash well my husband is happy less cuts and large pieces to place . We even had one that we needed to cut to fit the corner and I put cork on the bottom and turned the squares into hot plates !

      I absolutely LOVE this tile! It's thick and printed on a terracotta base. I wasn't sure if the printed design would look cheesy, but it doesn't. The pattern and color tones are spectacular and perfect for our small bathroom remodel. I was pleasantly surprised to see such an array of colors - black, charcoal, gray, taupe, browns and event hints of blue. We will use terracotta colored grout. I haven't purchased it yet, but other reviews for this tile recommend mapei brand for a nice grout color match. Overall, I am thrilled and would absolutely purchase this again.

      I was hesitant to order this tile after I received the sample (the sample is 3"x3") but I went for it. And the tile totally rocks. The tile comes is 18" x 18" sections which are made up of 4 square tiles. I'm using the tile in my guest bathroom and I love it.

      Very happy with this tile. We installed it in a wet bar / butler's pantry room that will take a lot of traffic from a side porch and yard, and it's a nice transition from outdoor to indoor. The installer used Mapei "Pecan" grout, mimicking the width of the faux grout lines on the tiles and the depth of that faux grout, which was a nice match. In an accent area, we used SomerTile's Royals Manhattan tile, which is the same tile without the charcoal gray pattern. Nice matte finish, and the built-in aged look is perfect for the space.

      We're putting in a small basement bathroom in a 1913 Craftsman, and since it won't get used often, I thought--why not go punchy? I looked at several styles of black and white encaustic cement tiles, and really liked the look, but was put off by the price ($15-$30/sq ft) and the mildly involved process of sealing them before and after grouting. I loved the star pattern on these tiles and that they don't read as overwhelming dark--I was just mildly afraid they'd have really yellow undertones and that the distressed look would be overdone and off-putting. I'm happy to report that they have clean, cool undertones (look fine next to white tile), and that the distressing isn't too much, in my opinion. Who cares if they're not handmade? They remind me of the duomo in Florence, and that makes me happy! $*/sq ft isn't bad, either.

      These were just as beautiful for our project as I had hoped. We are going for a vintage and a bit worn look and these were perfect for our powder room pony wall behind the sink. They come 4 to a tile, which I didn't realize when I bought them, but go up that much faster. We decided to grout with Nutmeg to continue the reddish hue already in the tile and it goes perfectly with the grey ceramic pendent we had purchased some time ago. There is black slate tile on the floor and it has all come together so well. We received the order quickly and picked up the well packaged tiles at the Home Depot Customer Service Desk - not one tile broken or chipped. Great buy!

      I love this tile and had my eye on it for months before ordering. I do think the tile is overpriced but I love the pattern so I went for it. The tile does a nice job of looking distressed with simulated "broken" corners, etc. If you look very closely it's not hard to see that it's all just printed on the tile, but actual caustic tile costs far more than this so it's a fair replication for the price. One note: each one of the tiles is made to look like four tiles. So there are lines on each tile which are terracotta in color. I'm still trying to figure out if I need to use grout that matches the terracotta color to set this tile or if the grout I choose will actually fill in the lines on each tile. Can't seem to find an answer for that, but will update with an image and answer once we install.

      So old world, love it for our pantry. The tile was easy to work with and placed nicely on the floor. Good quality and I did not see any appearance of a laser print like you find with some tile designs. I would lean this more towards old world rustic due to some of the intentional design elements of the tile. Very happy!

      This tile might be awesome, but it’s hard to tell when the sample that we received was about 2 inches by 3 inches . . . for a 17 inch tile. It’s impossible to get any grasp of the pattern or overall coloring with such a tiny sample. So as far as ordering a sample goes, you might as well just skip it and order a case of the tile instead.

      My husband prefers modern and I prefer old so we did a combo in a bathroom remodel. The tiles came packaged nicely and out of 3 boxes total only one piece was broken. The contractor had no problem cutting or installing them but he’s a professional so I can’t speak for novices. I chose terra-cotta colored grout from Home Depot because the backs of the tiles look terra-cotta and I like the contrast (images attached). The “patina” on these will mask out St Bernard’s hair on the floor nicely too!!

      Obviously this is a printed pattern, but as other reviewers said, it is a good quality. Each 17" square looks like it's actually 4. The tile is scored and you can see the terra-cotta as if it's grouted. Very excited for our laundry room! Pic is a few laid out because I couldn't wait to see.

      This is a great vintage looking tile just 2 things: packaging was screwy it arrived broken. Second, when they send a sample it’s hard matching up grout. The Tile has an existing Terra cotta line to it and the lines where the tiles meet is grey so plan to use either of these colors for grout or else it will look terrible.

      We installed these in a 4-season porch over a cement slab and they came out very well. We grouted each tile afterwards with a charcoal color for a more finished look. Some of the tiles had a little too much brown in them for my taste, so I pulled those from the bunch. Recommend you buy overage, especially if/when you have to cut them. A few were also broken in delivery. Overall, very pleased with the result!

      Beautiful tile and reasonably priced, especially with a coupon and Member Credit! Purchased for my powder room to make an impact and did not disappoint. Came packaged securely, although the box was damaged: thankfully no broken pieces! Do be aware of the large size of the measurements. Gives a nice “old-world” feel.

      This tile is a real conversation starter. We used it to tile the hallway in the addition of our cottage. We chose the tile specifically for its distressed look so it would hide dirt. It looks fabulous (like stenciled concrete) and it wears really well. This photo is of the tiling in progress. Everyone who visits compliments it.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Do you sell (or know of) a solid colored tile to coordinate with this tile?"

      • A:

        You can find the coordinating plain field tile for this series under item number 16920130.

    • Q:

      "I ordered these for a shower. Can they be used for this?"

      • A:

        Tile for shower... I would recommend that you order the sample to feel the texture , before ordering such a big investment. They are old world feel and look, if the shower is used daily I personally would not like the cleaning of it. Theres some vintage nicks and although its glazedits a rougher mat finish that would be rough to keep soap scrum off

      • A:

        Yes, all of our glazed tiles can be used on shower walls as long as the background construction and shower pan are adequately waterproofed. This tile in particular can also be used for a shower floor since it is floor rated.

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "what is the size of the sample? "

      • A:

        Each sample is a cut of the tile on a 3 x 5 card.

    • Q:

      "On a tv show I saw a brick fire place recovered with these tiles. It looked great. What method should I use to mount them to brick."

      • A:

        We would not recommend installing these tiles directly to brick as this can lead to a faulty installation. We would recommend installing these tiles to a cement backerboard for the best result.

    • Q:

      "How much would I need for 55 sq ft ? I can’t tell how to order this to accommodate that. How many are in a case"

      • A:

        Since each case of 5 tiles covers 11.1 square feet, you will need at least 5 cases to cover 55 square feet. We also always recommend purchasing at least 10% (closer to 20% for patterned tiles) more than you need in case of cuts and breaks.

      • A:

        There are 5 tiles in a case. 11 sqft per box.

      • A:

        There are 5 tiles per box @ 11.1 square feet. If you add in 10% for waste, then you would need 6 boxes and have a couple extra pieces. 5 boxes will cover 55.5 square feet, but that is without cutting or breaking any of the tiles. I had extra pieces, but they are so pretty that I wanted them all over (in small doses). So I added them to the tops of my smaller side tables just for fun.

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "Can I use this ooutside on my entry slab? I live in San Antonio, so not much moisture but lots of sunny heat!"

      • A:

        Since this tile is semi-vitreous and not frost resistant, we would not recommend using it outdoors unless your area never reaches freezing temperatures. If water is absorbed underneath the tile and the tile freezes, it has the potential to cause cracking.

    • Q:

      "I have installed this tile in my foyer and I LOVE it. I don't intend to seal it as that would ruin the look, but I would like to know how best to clean it and what general maintenance is advised. It is in my foyer so gets general traffic dirt and a little entry moisture. Thanks so much!"

      • A:

        We recommend using a neutral cleaner and non-abrasive cloth. We find that for cleaning tile floors a steam mop works best.
