Rated 5 out of 5 by from White subway tile Excellent affordable tile .. kitchen backsplash looks great
Date published: 2020-08-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great on our shower walls We used these to tile our shower walls in an offset pattern with charcoal grout. The end result looks amazing. However, these tiles are slightly bowed, so don't expect to get a perfectly flat tiled surface. They are also quite thin so when you're cutting them using a wet tile saw, the end bit breaks off just as you're finishing the cut. This is typical of thin tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and modern Beautiful to work with. Very modern shape. Did two bathrooms, showers and kitchen backsplash. Light grey grout in most areas. Gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice size Nice size subway tile which gives a great impression. I paired it with a glass mosaic, also from HD. We are delighted with the result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Looking Great looking tile. Has rough edges so you will need to do some kind of edging or border. Other than that - great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent tile Tiles were nice but some had fine scratches that picked up grout. They weren’t noticeable until the grout was applied.

Are these tiles ok for a shower? What grade of tile is?

Asked by: Kelly
Yes, wall tile body is suitable for a shower wall application. All tile sold in North America meets the ANSI Standard A137.1 for tile. Grades are assigned to natural stone items, as they need to be separated, where as tile is produced and therefore controlled to a standard that all tile must meet.

What type of thinset works best to install these over backerboard in a shower? Planning to use Red Guard over cement board. 

Asked by: Riverrat
I used TEC brand 487 Ultimate 6 Plus polymer modified mortar with my tiles on Kerdi  board. So far I haven’t had any issues. I hung 15 boxes of the tiles.

My bathroom is 9 x 5 including a bathtub which I'm replacing. The bathroom walls have a 4' row of 4 x 4 white tiles. I'm changing the bathtub tiles to this one My ? is; how will the finished job look with 2 different length of tiles? HELP!!!

Asked by: Aurora
I only used it above our bathroom sink. But we, also, had to use two different lengths in order to make a back-splash above our counter and below the mirror. I think it turned out wonderfully, but it's all about the pattern you use while using two different lengths of tile. Good luck!

What is the waxy 'glue' used to stick these together in the package? It won't completely come off the tile backs, and isn't listed on the site or the product information sheet. I'll be using these loose in an aquarium, and I'm concerned about toxicity.

Asked by: Kris
It’s to prevent the tile from scratching one another in the boxes. I’m not sure what it’s made out of but tiles in general other than glass tiles with no backing I don’t thing would be aquarium safe. The composites used in porcelain & ceramic production I believe are not aquarium safe.

Does this tile require sanded or unsanded grout?

Asked by: Eh Mari
I used sanded grant as I believe it holds better. Better cracking and keeps its colour longer.

what size edge trim do you use with this tile ?

Asked by: Tam225
This tile is 7.3 mm thick, so choose a trim that matches this tile thickness. Most are gauged according to the thickness of the tile.
