we bought this box of tiles to replace some that had been damaged since we redid the kitchen a few years ago. these have a surface that isn't uniformly smooth and feels like real stone; they look great. just be aware that, just like with actual stone, having a not uniformly smooth surface means you may have to work a little harder now and then to get dirt out and it may take an extra push or two to push a chair in if they get caught on a small ridge.
Took a while to receive order but they were worth the wait, Thanks Overstock once again!!!!
Item looks great but arrived broken
We ordered this transition piece because it was difficult to find a retailer that would ship only one without shipping freight. When it arrived in a heavy tube we unwrapped it and found that the top 6" of the full length had cracked and broken. Luckily we intended to cut it short of the break point so it ultimately didn't effect the use of this item for us.
Most retailers won't ship these individually for this reason, which I would emphasize is a very valid reason. The product is exceptional in appearance I would just advise anyone to be cautious when ordering as you can't guarantee safe shipping.
