It is very different than most backsplash tiles we have seen. We are building a beautiful mountain home and decided to go for it. Happy wife, happy life!Richard B on Feb 17, 2017When will you have more in stock?I'd like to order this tile as a backsplash for my kitchen, however I have quite a few outlets - is it possible to cut this tile to accomodate outlet openings?BEST ANSWER: I was able to use this tile in my backsplash. I used an angle grinder to remove the 3D surface where it met the outlet covers. It just takes some patience. I would recommend using a thicker cover plate to hide the cut edges of the 3D tiles. I used Legrand Adorne outlets/switches and they covered great.Looking for a yellow color?BEST ANSWER: I just installed this on my own home. There was more of a blue tint than yellow. I would recommend getting extra to account for the differences in width of the tile, as much as 1/4". I ended up matching like sized tiles to overcome the difference.Does this picture show 50% of the Byzantine 3D AND 50% of regular, flat tile? Or is this entire picture composed of the 3D?BEST ANSWER: It's a 50/50 photo. We used the 3D exclusively in a subway stile and we loved how it came out for our backsplash.We're planning to use this tile in a stacked pattern for our fireplace surround, and we are hoping to hear how this tile works out when used in combination with Schluter metal edging. If the edges end up cut, has anyone used it in combination with the Schluter and does it look ok despite the raised edges? Do they protrude past the Schluter edge or does it align to the high points? Also is the variation in length a common issue?BEST ANSWER: We considered a schluter as well, but, along with our installer decided against it. The tile is 5/8" away from the wall at the highest point where we had to cut. The schluter might loook fine but it won't lie flat, obviously. (And neither will your outlet covers...which wasn't a big deal overall, but something we only realized after we installed). We have one exposed edge of cut backsplash tile, and honestly no one notices.How many tiles come in "one unit", i.e. do I get 5 tiles for the cost listed per unit? It seems like too good to be true price! Thanks.BEST ANSWER: I think the web site has a calculator. I ended up with a lot extra. It looks fantastic!Is there a view of kitchen back splash that reveals more area?BEST ANSWER: I can send you pictures/video of my kitchen if you let me know how. I love the tile and it has been much admired by friends.how do you install shower fittings to the 3D tiles?BEST ANSWER: Using the tile as my kitchen backsplash and it not installed yet... Wish I could help more!Are there bull-nose tiles for top and side edges that are compatible with this tile (in white)?BEST ANSWER: no, but we used a standard white subway tile to do edges/corners and it worked great. Our kitchen looks out of this world. email mike@dehlingerinsurance .com and I can send you a couple of photosI am placing these tiles in my backsplash what size spacers should i use to get the close fit that appears in the photos?BEST ANSWER: No less than 1/16"will you be getting this back in stock?BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes we will be getting more in stock.

Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.

- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
